Jacket, Winter (Tanker), Luxe
Although these garments were designed for armored vehicle crews, troops in all branches of the service endeavored to acquire them.
Europe was cold and wet, and this uniform was far superior to the fair-weather M41 Field Jacket. The jackets were particularly popular and many were obtained by "alternative means" by infantrymen, artillerymen and yes, even paratroopers. Thus, it is historically correct for nearly any member of the US Armed Forces to wear Winter Combat Uniforms or components thereof.
