The Universal Camouflage Conundrum
Our friends at Custom Gear Report have a great post today summing up the blogosphere news on the new Army pattern UCP Delta.
UCP Delta is the current Universal Camouflage Pattern (ACU) enhanced with a new color, “coyote brown,” blended into it.
The internet’s been a buzz since yesterday when the world got it’s first glimpse of the pattern, and heard about an Army test pitting “Delta” against Crye Multicam.
We’re with CGR on staying out of the news rat race on this subject, but wanted to pass on some links where you can read all about it.
We’ll be happy when this is all over with and the Army finally realizes UCP needs to go away (including “Delta”).
Update: Army Times is now reporting that they had to use the FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) to obtain results from a 2007 two-year test by PEO Soldier that basically states that UCP is 16%-36% worse than Multicam, Desert Digital, Desert Brush and a Syrian Pattern! (We did say we were staying out of it right?)
