  1. Hi,

    Just one thing, what is the correct NSN for the issue basha, is it

    1. 8415-99-667-1242


    2. 8340-99-667-1242

    Mine is the first one, but i'm just wondering why there are two NSNs for the same piece of kit, or if one is a copy of the genuine one?
  2. Just wondering but are you sure one is not for the bag as they are a separate item?
  3. i could be well out, but is it that one is the single man, one the double?
  4. Could well be, mine is quite big across, probably meaning its for two.

    Thanks for the help.
  5. What! are you mad?

    Here's what you want

    CN 8340-99-667-1240 Shelter Sheet

    CN 8105-99-902-2247 Bag (Shelter Sheet)
  6. Is that where you got it from? it's not uncommon for manufacturers to put 'fake NSNs on copy items to increase the look of a copy.

    Does that make sense?, my heads up my arrse at the moment.
