Share: 0
SKU: df26dcf28944 Category:

The Modular General Purpose Tent Shelter (MGPTS Type III-Internal Arch with Clear Architecture) provides a clear span interior usable space. This MGPTS is inter-operable/interchangeable with the Y-Pole version. The interface of the MGPTS Type III comes with component parts, including fabric, support system, tent pins and transport covers; all are inter-operable and interchangeable with all other MGPTS military tents. The Modular General Purpose Tent Shelter utilizes tensioned fabric to create a structure which distributes wind, rain and snow loads from the fabric directly to the support system. The Modular GP tent shelter design 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. The tent’s system is 18 feet wide and can be extended indefinitely by adding 18-foot intermediate sections.
