While nice and fancy.
You can pack and ship 10 times the amount of 'soft' tents in the amount of space taken up by the rigid ends of this concept.

but then their not as easy to deploy. This is about getting them up fast and efficiently, not volume, how is a thousand soft tents that injured people have to assemble themselves going to help anybody? Think it through.

Injured people aren't gonna feel comfortable assembling *any* tent.
However this concept seems faster and easier to deploy than quechua's plague and being square makes it modular.
