Advantages Of Military Tents

A tent is a shelter consisting of sheets of fabric or other material draped over, attached to a frame of poles, or attached to a supporting role. While smaller tents may be free-standing or attached to the ground, large tents are usually anchored using guy ropes tied to stakes or tent pegs.

Tents for recreational camping fall into two categories. Tents intended to be carried by backpackers are the smallest and lightest type. Small tents may be sufficiently light that they can be carried for long distances on a touring bicycle, a boat, or when backpacking.

The second type is larger, heavier tents which are usually carried in a car or other vehicle. Depending on tent size and the experience of the person or people involved, such tents can usually be assembled in half-hour and disassembly takes a similar length of time. 

Some very specialized tents have spring-loaded poles and can be ‘pitched’ in seconds, but take somewhat longer to strike. Most military tents throughout history were of a simple ridge design. Many military surplus tents have holes built into them to keep them warm. Army tents make it easier to camp in all seasons.
