    The A-frame was designed in 1939. In April i think. I don't know if it was used in the Polish campaign. Here is an earlier version with pack.

    Not really. Only that the leather straps on the bottom are the other way around than on later models.

    Hello,
    The A-frame went into trials as soon as late 1938 in the infantry school regiment. First ones produced were grey coloured with brown straps. You can't see A-frames on period photos showing the polish campaign, you start to see some during the french campaign, there are some famous photos. Massive issue of the A-frame to infantry regiments took place before Barbarossa.
    Thanks
