Is it my imagination or are our guys looking more and more like the troopers in Aliens and Starship Troopers?

I hear you. I love seeing those pics Lumpy posts of the A4s with the 203s mounted and the ACOGs and IR illuminators and everything.

You know, I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first, (not that my opinion is of any worth in these matters) but that new camo looks pretty good in action.

The New ACU has a pretty good blend to it


Great pics Lumpy

Thanks

Beats the crap out of MARPAT.

Thanks for sharing.

Matching LBE too?

That camo actually looks pretty good in that AO.

ETA: Still too tight of a pattern though.

Thanks Lumpy.

Can you find some pics of it in a woodland environment?

Let's fast forward all the SST references straight to BOTD pics of Denise Richards.

Great set of pics, Lumpy.

A master sergeant came into my shop the other day wearing the new camo fatigues. Name tags and unit patches are all velcro. Judging by your photos, the pattern lends itself well to urban operations.

I think the new uniform looks pretty cool with all the gear on.

That staircase doesn't look like it meets OSHA or ADA requirements. I don't see any handrail, someone coud get hurt.

Thanks, Lumpy!

Won't see these pics of our guys shaking hands and passing out candy on the news...damn, I love our guys!

tageth

all hail the mohawked one thanks I was looking for some ACU in action pics.

May I add one?

I think we all hated it based on that crummy DOD pic. The guy was standing about 30 feet away from foilage and he was standing in the bright sun. Also his uniform was not baggy enough. I think they just wanted to show off the pattern and features vs its effectiveness.
