No, not at all common.

Re: Tan and water camo?

Fotos of Sumpfmuster smocks in use on Normandy D-day and D-day + are not unusual. The 21st Panzer Div had units on maneuver who had been issued smocks for that exercise.

Re: Aussie gear

If you want to get into the nitty gritty, the Aussies also produced cross straps with a wider shoulder relief part to go with the larger pouches.
