    As far as I know the fur was not a horse but a cow? Germans do not eat horses (or at least Germans in northen part do not eat) so it is impossible to get horse skin in such large quantities to make backpacks for 10 million soldiers.
    Sounds logic Frundsberg. But doubt there was made 10 million of these radio backpacks. But it could actually look like cow/calf skin.

    He not just talking about Radio pack he talking about the standard fur packs (sorry forgot German term), yours is just a modfication more or less. There were a ton of these made.

    If i remeber reading correctly, they would be made Horse or Cow heid
