Development of assault guns in the lte 1930`s such as the Sturm-Geschutz 111 exposed the need for suitable uniforms for the crews. The black panzer wrap was the obvious choice > However the members of the newly formed Sturmartillerie provided close support for infantry and often had to act as scouts on foot in open terrain. So a field grey wool version of the panzer jacket was chosen. It was basically the M36 panzer pattern so a double breasted jacket of feld grau wool. The fall collar unlike the panzer version had no piping but the shoulder boards had the red waffenfarbe for artillery . This later M36 pattern enabled the wrap to be button up and closed at the top via a metal eyelet. The lining were partially lined with grey cotton twill. But Later in the war this was replaced with rayon, a type of artificial silk becaseu of shortages.
There were manufacture variations made during the war liem, the denim summer version . The buttons were mostly grey plastic but horn buttons can also be found. Collar insignia was field grey tabs with stamped metal deaths head (totenkopf) skulls surrounded again by red piping. The national emblem( eagle and swastika) was stitched to the right breast. This was the woven or BeVo variety. Field grey wool shoulder boards(Schulterklappen) complete the jacket.
A final note from 1941 onwards the uniform was gradually broadened to encompass other branches of the German army. Late in the war infantry units were occasionally issued with this jacket as a replacement to the four pocket tunic.
