How about:
обозно-вещевого снабжения
and
обозно-хозяйственного


from:
С 1 марта 1940 года из Управления обозно-вещевого снабжения РККА образовано два самостоятельных управления: Управление вещевого снабжения Красной Армии и Управление обозно-хозяйственного снабжения Красной Армии (Директива Главного организационного управления КА от 26.02.1940 г).

вешимущества
Check the spelling, it's probably вещимущества = вещевого имущества

Вещевое имущество = equipment, other than principal items, eg. uniforms, tents and sleeping stuff, etc.
