Pretty much everyone has commented on this and I don’t really have much to add, but I thought I’d toss this link up since it has a decent visual and a pretty good summary of the new uniform that will be replacing the BDU.
J-Walk posted this photo on Monday.
It shows three soldiers: two in the new uniform, and one in the old uniform.
I think he’s just kidding, though. I don’t see anyone at all.
My initial impression is that the new uniforms are pretty cool, if only because most of the modifications have been made specifically to address issues raised by troops. The gray camo looks a little weird, but don’t worry. Everyone will be wearing green and brown body armor over it. Assuming they can get body armor.
I still haven’t heard a good explanation for why they continue to produce body armor in forest rather than desert colors, by the way.
