I came across a new camouflage a few days ago, new for me at least. It seems to be originated from Britain. I don't know if it is operational yet, or if it ever be a camouflage pattern for regular forces. The Special Forces around the world can wear what ever they prefer, I suppose

It's not operational in the UK (at the moment).

As for Special Forces, in the UK they wear the same camo as regular forces. Makes it easier to blend in with everyone else.

Wouldn't the wearing of standard issued British uniforms identify them as Brits, when they are in an area where the Brits are not supposed to be?

The British forces are using the Multicam now, right?

They would either wear the local uniform or dress in plain clothes etc.

Our special forces aren't in the habit of being caught when they are in places they shouldn't be.

I meant that they wear standard British camo so that they can't be identified i.e. they just look like regular soldiers to the untrained eye.

Yes. Our version is called MTP (Multi Terrain Pattern).

Do the British forces still wear the DPM uniform?

The DPM is quite popular among hunters in Sweden, I have seen them wearing a DPM smock (mostly by Arktisltd) beside the civilian hunting camouflage, in Sweden, it is called "Tree bark."

Some snipers in the Swedish military are/were wearing the DPM. A friend of mine was a sniper and he told they had the DPM

I have a black smock (by Arktisltd) I use it when I am hiking during the colder seasons, not daily. I like it a lot

DPM started being phased out in 2010 and as of mid 2011 it's no longer in use iirc. All wear MTP (multicam) now.

DPM was unsuitable in Afghanistan hence the change.
