Eureka Military Tents, brand new, only one available, 18' x 36', desert tan in color. The Modular General Purpose Tent System (MGPTS) utilizes tensioned fabric to create a structure which distributes wind, rain and snow loads from the fabric directly to the support system. Because of this design, the MGPTS distributes loads more efficiently with lighter support systems than conventional GP tents. The MGPTS serves as billeting, command and control, unit supply and field services shelters. The modular design consists of one type end and intermediate sections, one type end pole and one type internal arch.
