… Uniforms With New Pattern

"Lawmakers want the Army to finalize a plan to dye its pixelated Universal Camouflage Patterned uniforms and equipment to blend with the service's new Operational Camouflage Pattern.

The House Armed Services Committee's subcommittee on readiness released its markup today for the proposed fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. The document expresses interest in technologies that would allow the Army to re-dye existing universal camouflage uniforms and equipment, with a particular focus on its never-popular, now-obsolete UCP camo.

The Army selected the Operation Camouflage Pattern -- a blend of browns, greens and tans -- to replace the older UCP pattern in 2014 as a result of the service's exhaustive camouflage study…."

An article about camouflage that does not actually provide a photo of the new version. The quality of journalism today is just terrible.

Just thought of something …

Have the folks who do WH40K ever heard of camouflage? :)

Oh, they've heard about it…and have decided that it's for wimps.

The part I always had a hard time getting my head around was the various branches of the military going through repeated changes to uniforms while dealing with the constraints of the budget sequestration. Spending curbs caused a roll back in everything from parts and pieces to equipment replacement to entire units and yet it seemed for a while that they had joined the "Uniform Of The Month Club".

I always thought it was funny that folks working in office cubicles wearing camouflage uniforms. Unless you are in the field engaging the enemy there is no need for camouflage.

OCP/Multicam is a fantastic pattern, especially in low light. I am very pleased with it.

UCP is effective in gravel pits and on some couches. I cannot believe that it was selected.

We used woodland BDU, which was effective for… you guessed it, woodlands.

Camouflage in office settings… used to portray actually working when not😂

Lawmakers seem to be unaware that the uniforms have a limited lifespan. IIRC, it's about 12 months of use.
