    I dunno. That white would stand out pretty bad in a forest setting, IMO. :hmm:

    I've seen the MARPAT that the Marines use first hand, and it looks and functions much, much better than the old stuff. 'Bout time the Army caught up.

    believe me it works... i'm guessing it would adapt to the amount of light and that which is cast upon it due to the inclusion of all 3 colour types which means they only need that one - and bear in mind, camoflauge isn't there to make you invisible, its just hard to see you as it disrupts the shape of your body

    I only know that british and americans seem to make crappy boots, because some soldiers are complaining their boots melt in iraq...
    and the british kept stealing our dead soldiers boots in Malvinas (falklands) :lol:

    Giving every single soldier in a rapidly expanding US Army an entirely new set of clothes?

    I can't see anyone screwing this up!

    They managed it pretty well when they made changes in the summer uniform fabrics while I was in.

    is a blended style camoflage with no solid lines between the different colours (unlike british DMP for example) so that it makes the wearer less visible by breaing up the outlines

    You'd risk the life of one hot chick when you can send out 50 men in two colour fubu uniforms?

    That's what you get when you let a computer design your uniforms.

    how about they make them red and grey so they're easier to find. i swear, that would look like a moving block of cement in a forest...like the adrenaline camoflauge in ut2k3 lol

    i meant you'd have digitally designed patterns of hawt nekked chicks on the uniform as opposed to the digital green/gray/tan splotches (or as I like to call it, blingbling stains).
