For once, it looks like the Army is going to do something smart in the uniform department. The current Army uniform is the ACU or Army Combat Uniform.
But for years, soldier’s deploying to Afghanistan have complained that the ACU, with its green/grey pattern was not a good fit for the terrain in Afghanistan. Finally, after a 4 month test program, the Army has decided to equip troops going to Afghanistan with a pattern better suited to the environment.
A quick glance at this photo shows this is a very effective pattern for the terrain.
