But you get on with what you got... another question... why does our tac vest only have room for 4 magazines (not including the one on your weapon)???
It's really simple actually, You see as the soviet motor infantry divisions assault through the Fulda Gap; us Canadians will from up our three brigades and plug into a NATO corps. Therefore we will always be close to our supply system, behind us, and we will know where then enemy is, as we engage him on the European plains in glorious mechanized warfare fare


....at least that's what's going htrough the minds of Disney Land east (NDHQ)

I've got to wonder about the effectiveness of the US Army's new combats, the greyish digital cam ones. Though i'm sure a lot was spent on research and everything, i just have a difficult time seeing how wearing grey is supposed to hide someone in a green bush. Does anyone have any pictures of these clothes in the field?

I would say that it has to do, with the urban enviroments in which we see the majority of fighting taking place these days.

I have one thing to say. When you look at the Marine Cover, it is pretty had to see the Chevron on it. So I say it works well, because if its pixel like design

That's not good at all. My friend just joined the reserves and he got CADPAT right away. He didn't have to wear ODs for a while or anything.

Well this is the first time I've ever heard such complaint. Just loosen up, the Military would give CADPATs to combat soldiers. Especially when they are trained for combat.

LOL, yeah, some CAP guys got all worked up at us because our JROTC unit bought MARPAT woodland BDUs (with our own money) and they were stuck with their old patterns instead of the new Air Force patterns. Suckers!
Those CAPers worked up what? What did they do?

Well as an infantry soldier, in an infantry unit; who's currently wearing olive drap...and who's Sgt is wearing olive drap as well as a great deal of others...I think I have a right to be a bit bitter.

When I did my bit in the middle east last year we had a big discussion over who's cams were best.
We thought that human eye picked out the new US marine cams quicker due to the strange fuzzy look of the pattern as compared to your 2 old pattern desert cams. Though the cookie cam was pretty stranage.
Not sure how the woodland version would go, but the smaller the pattern the more it would stand out in nature would be my guess.
Then again I wear AUSCAM.
New or faded it blends into our bush quite well.
The desert pattern we have looks a little weird in buildings but out in the desert its great.
And everyone wanted a set of us.
I like the colour and pattern in the European photo.
