众所周知

美国陆军现时的 ACU 的迷彩样式 UCP-Universal Camouflage Pattern

在很多环境下都不能有效融合于背景

在这个坛子也有在美军服役的成员

好想听一下他们对UCP的看法


在下在查找Eberlestock 公司开发的迷彩样式"UNICAM"时

连接到一份名为《Congress tells Army to get new camo – ASAP!》的报道

关于 美国陆军对“UCP”的反应及分析将以何种迷彩取代UCP

在各迷彩样式当中 Eberlestock公司的"UNICAM"当然也在候选名单中

下图就是“UNICAM”


铁血网提醒您:点击查看大图


没错 它的确不是国人所熟悉的"Multicam"或国内最流行的错误称呼“CP色”

当然 在国外也有不少人认为它仅仅是数码化的“Multicam” 其实不然

候选名单中还有“AOR1”、“AOR2”、“Mirage”、HyperStealth公司的样式


但由于军费预算的限制,且上述迷彩有的还在改进或未有大量库存

陆军在短期内针对阿富汗战场的环境

替换ACU的最有可能、最便宜、最快的方法就是——重新起用“三色沙漠迷彩”!!!

而服装款式则延续ACU的设计

哈哈哈 真的有点开心 因为在下一向是三色沙漠的粉丝。

Congress tells Army to get new camo – ASAP!

I, like a lot of other camouflage students and experts, always thought that the US Army’s “Universal Camouflage Pattern” actually sucks in most environments. Right from the start it was a controversial pattern – both in the way it was developed as in the way it was chosen – and the logic behind it was highly debatable too. But whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit that the “universal” in its name applies more to the fact that it is universally issued (i.e., for every uniform and piece of individual equipment for every soldier in the Army) than that it is universally effective as a camouflage pattern.


It also didn’t take long for some elements within the Army to find ways of avoiding having to wear it – first there was SOCOM, who have always had looser regulations about what their troops in-theatre can wear, gaining official authorisation to revert back to the Hot Weather woodland-camo BDU in tropical and sub-tropical duty environments. More recently, its also reported that the 173rd Airborne will be rocking MultiCam when they next deploy to Afghanistan.


Well, according to a story on Soldier Systems today, the US Congress has now picked up on the matter and issued a directive that the Army makes funding available to “take immediate action to provide combat uniforms to personnel deployed to Afghanistan with a camouflage pattern that is suited to the environment.” Congress has also instructed the Army to report back on this matter regarding their plans, progress and budgetting by the end of this fiscal year. This instruction still needs to be signed in to law by President Obama, but its expected that he will do so soon. So now it appears to be more or less official that UCP sucks.


Note that the instructions from Congress only apply to soldiers deploying to Afghanistan – so the Army might well carry on with the further roll-out of UCP-on-everything. Also, as the instruction is to take action “immediately”, watch for a “pick me!” scramble among manufacturers as they all try to get their uniforms / patterns chosen. I’d say that MultiCam uniforms – probably in an ACU cut – are probably the front runners for overall selection, given their wide-spread availability and the precedent of having already been used by special operation forces, and for the upcoming deployment of the 173rd.


AOR1 and AOR2 might be another possibility, but so far they are specific to / restricted to SOCOM. Commercial versions of MARPAT (“digi-woodland”, “digi-desert”) are possibilities, but the Army would probably have to overcome resistance to convince the Marines to let them use them. At the very other end of the spectrum, it could end up being a new pattern from a different source – perhaps Bulldog Equipment’s “Mirage” camo, or one of HyperStealth’s patterns, or UNICAM from Erblestock.


My prediction is that the Army will go for a ready-to-wear, off-the-shelf solution for the short-term demand for Afghanistan, as that would be the easiest and most cost-effective approach. This could be the ACU-style MultiCam uniforms from Propper and Tru-Spec or, since the Army won’t get any additional funding for this, there’s the very real possibility that they’ll go for the cheapest and easiest solution and simply re-issue the old 3-colour DCU (according to a rumour now making the rounds).


The interesting question is what will happen after this, will the Army be pressured into possibly launch a new program to change the camo uniform for the rest of the Army later on? Probably not – given the millions they’ve already invested in UCP. At any rate, it should be interesting to watch…
