In case you don't know what I'm talking about, the USAF is currently testing a new uniform to possible replace the current utility uniforms/BDUs/camies whatever you want to call 'em. It is going to be...blue.
why do they even need BDU's they got the plane to protect them

ok I am former AF but in the army and the first time I saw the "NEW" AF BDU I cracked up laughing even with the Security forces beret it still looked Stupid but hey it ain't like the army is doing any better . I swear what is the upper echelon of our military thinking. I mean they gave everyone black berets,made the AF look corporate in full service dress, changed the BDU's , and now they are going to change the army Class A's. Was I the only one taught if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I totally agree, you where BD's fro one reason these days and that is to try and stay hidden, and not to be spotted.


Sorry no thankyou those are ugly and besides the Army and the Marines are on the right track the new BD's are digital, and the Air force either needs their BD's in Air Force Blue or need to stay with the one's they have, plus they should make the transfer to digital.

The Army starts widespread deployment of the new digital uniform, I think either this fall or they have al ready started issuing them.

Digital BD's are better because they bring down the probability of being spotted.

After 18 yrs of service I am getting sick and tired of all the AF uniform changes. In my time alone, I have gone through 6 different uniform changes and this one by far is the worst. It's obvious the AF is having an identity problem, but this uniform is not the answer. I like the new digital design but the color is disastrous. the other services already mock fun at us for and it seems we are only adding to their bag of choices. Come on leadership let's put our priorities where they belong!

I thought all the services made fun of each other anyway?

I'd say their priorities shouldn't be in protecting their personnel from remarks made by other branches, I'd say they should be focussing on getting their personnel the newest en most advanced gear possible, even if it doesn't look "cool".
But I'm not in the air force, so it's easy for me to say....

I agree about services making fun about each other, that doesn't bother me..it's actually fun. But the new AF uniform makes us look like clowns!

the new AF BDU's are the blue version of the Marine Corps digitals, right? from a distance it looks like one of those blue hawaiian shirts.

they should stick to the old BDU's

actually no they look like something the brits used in desert storm, but was changed to blue, instead of desert.

Here's my question. What the hell were they thinking when they jacked the Marine Corps UT cover? It sems to me that the Air Force decided to change their uniforms right after the Marines did. It kinda makes me wonder if there isn't some secondary purpose for changing the uniform(maybe recruit people who want to dress like Marines without having to BE one?). I hope the whole idea gets dumped.

Dude that utility cover is also used by the Army, but the Air Force always used to use berrets. Plus I've seen so of the Naval Ground Forces have that utility cover before too.
