In the links provided in this thread it's inferred that Scorpion is inferior (even if ever-so-slightly) to Multicam......... I'm guessing due to the absence of the vertical blotches?.......... At any rate, it looks like an effective pattern. But more importantly, it looks cool :) 


Muster 2, GR Challenges 840/1036, Navigator 006

I still think we should just compel all branches to utilize true multicam as their primary pattern and be done with it.


Doubtful DOD would pay for it due to the sheer cost to buy it outright from crye. Crye gave the army a highly discounted price after doing a valuation of the multicam brand, and it still cost tens of millions of dollars, which the army instantly refused. Easier for dod to go with scorpion and its bookend patterns.

A shame too.. I'd still argue that A-TACS would have been a better alternative.

What you say is absolutely true, I think it was a very budget conscious decision... but my blood boils when men and women who serve our nation and put their life on the line are forced to use anything less than the absolute best because of cost. You put your ass on the line for us... you should be given whatever will make that task the safest and the easiest it can be.

From qhat ive heard, atacs fg works very well, but only in certain types of forrests.
