I was wondering what happened to all the shed loads of WW2 German kit. Did the Bundeswehr use much of it when it formed? Clearly a lot was destroyed but there still must have been heaps left. I know that they use the Coal scuttle helmets for parades, and still use the MG42. (I supervised the destruction of a few WW2 MG42s in Bosnia) but what about armour and aircraft? Did the DDR use any WW2 kit?
