Topic: new USAF BDUs


So what does everyone think about the idea of a new BDU for the Air Force

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.

Does it look like MOUT BDUs?

Well that makes more sense than taking camoflage Army BDUs and slapping twenty brightly colored patches on them. Kind of ruins the whole purpose of the camoflage. Anyway, do you have a link for what these things look like?

I think the uniform that samirine is referring to was pictured on the cover or Army/Air Force Times a little while back. It's only one of several possible entries that USAF is evaluating and will not necessarily be adopted.

BTW, the Army has now decided that NLT 1 Oct 05, all soldiers will wear a full color US Flag on their right sleeve - so much for camouflage discipline

Do you know how big that flag will be?
We have our flag on the right sleeve as well.
It's only 4x2,5cm, so camouflage is really no problem at all.

No I can't find the link. And GuyontheRight There have been a few debates about it on af.mil, you can find them under letters I think.

Yes Gunner13 is right they are currently testing a whole bunch of options, including the kind made from very small dots like the Marines just got. And of course it will be years before they're done testing and deciding and then they have to phase it in... The military is only speedy when they want you to be somewhere yesterday.
