Originally conceived for use by German forces during WWII, the Jerry Cans design proved to be so good that it was reverse-engineered for use by the Allies. The 20-litre container was tough and compact, allowing them to be easily stowed aboard vehicles. It had a simple but effective lid mechanism with three handles. Jerry cans used by the German army featured a functional design. Early-type cans featured simple cross-shaped indentations for structural reinforcement while later types had more complex indentation patterns. Early-type cans were seen from the Polish campaign to North Africa and the beginning of the Russian campaign, and some were continuously used until the latter half of the war.
