Yep, for a GI pup tent.

All the documentation I've run across tells me the dimensions for the fabric halves but nothing about how long the poles are supposed to be.

I just want to be able to use some replacement fiberglass poles and want to figure out dimensions so that the flaps will look right when set up.

No, I don't want to buy a set of the heavy GI ones.

Why in the fuck do you want to use a shelter half puptent? Heavy, small, leaks, no insect protection, no floor.... did I mention heavy?

Nope, but I could go check the length of those for a shelter quarter.
