Army uniform officials have tapped five finalists to develop the service’s new family of camouflage patterns.
The Jan. 10 announcement is the result of the Army’s exhaustive Phase IV Camouflage effort. The five vendors have been awarded contracts to make camouflage-patterned material for uniforms and equipment that will be field-tested later this year, uniform officials say.
One of the companies chosen is Crye Precision LLC out of Brooklyn, N.Y. Crye invented MultiCam, a camouflage pattern that the Army chose in early 2010 to replace the services’ Universal Camouflage Pattern, or UCP, in Afghanistan.
Oh, for crap’s sake, just buy the Multi-Cam, and be done with it.
