This General Purpose, or G.P., Medium Tent was designed for the US Army and other military as a multipurpose, weatherproof shelter. They are ideal for rain, high winds, humidity and most other weather conditions. Both sidewalls may be easily rolled up and tied in the upright position for air flow in warmer weather. A liner can purchased separately to increase warmth in winter conditions.
These multipurpose tents can be used for hunting camps, emergency shelters, disaster relief, longterm camping, and more. They are also popular with with war reenactors since the GP medium tent was “designed for use in artillery operations, housing components of a field baker, or quarters for troops. It may also be used as a command post, fire support control center, mess hall, storage, or ward of a field hospital, etc.”
