Military Phases in New Camo Pattern

The New York Times reports that “the Army is getting a redesigned combat uniform, with tweaked detailing and accessories, which entered select Military Clothing Sales stores Wednesday, and will gradually be absorbed into soldiers’ existing wardrobes.”  

“Instead of the Universal Camouflage Pattern and the Multicam design (also known as the Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern), the new Army Combat Uniform features a print the Army has labeled the Operational Camouflage Pattern.”  

“The Universal Camouflage Pattern, with its green and tan pixelated splotches, debuted in 2004 and turned out to be less effective than expected and largely unpopular… The new print looks like a combination of the Universal Camouflage Pattern and the Multicam, complete with blobs, rather than pixel shapes, and darker colors.”
