That is what I thought, most pics I have seen have them using German equipment/fieldgear if they are using non-Romanian items.

Just received my kit from Dragos a few days ago. Y straps have rings instead of hooks to connect to ammo pouches and belt. The German y strap has hooks, why did these ones have rings?

The Y straps are hung from the belt, above the D rings you should have a loop in the Y strap through which goes the belt, the D rings are there to attach different equipment such as grenades or the canteen.

During WW2 very few items of Russian equipment were carried by Romanian soldiers. The Russian equipment was of a poor quality and was not very tempting for the Romanian infantrymen. Maybe sometimes they used some tent sheets, entrenching tools, canteens and probably some warm (padded) clothes during the winter.
There are more photos presenting Romanian soldiers carrying soviet weapons: sniper version of M.1930 Mosin-Nagan rifles, M.1940 PPD and M.1941 PPSh SMGs or M.1927 Degtjarev LMGs. They could carry also the respective ammo pouches.

What about the Russian backpack? Have an original mid-war German pack but it hooks to the German y straps and the Romanian straps doesn't have the connections needed.

The castings on the fins are crude. Plus, I believe the "glove-box" on the gas-tank is an IMZ/Chiang Jiang affection.

Though they are really cool rigs. Some of the CJs have a "rumble-seat" on the sidecar, giveing them a total capacity of 4 people. If you go real slow, I imagine.

Well the National Park Service contacted me and asking if I would be willing to attend a Stalingrad event being held at the WWII Memorial in Washington D.C. this spring. Lets see if I can get at least two others to go with me if it happens which would be a good boost for Romania's recognition here in the US.
