The Crye "family" is expected to just be tweaks of the colors, that means legacy multicam equipment and PPE are good to go with these new patterns.
Are we just assuming things or have you actually seen the new patterns in conjunction with Multicam? As much as I'd like for that to be the case, the supposed desert/woodland scorpion camouflage I've seen doesn't look to be that complimentary. Then again, I will wait to see the actual patterns before making any claims or wild ass guesses.
The Army was looking at licensing multicam, this late in the game, that is a clue.
They also just purchased an additional 750,000 uniforms in UCP. Is that also a clue? Just saying, it doesn't necessarily mean more than face value. Maybe they finally realized how much royalties were costing them in the long term. Or maybe they really were trying to secure the rights to "Multicam" along with the other patterns acquired from the latest selection. I don't know.
All of this "scientific" ADS data, is some of the most biased work I have seen, not to mention ADS footed the bill, who are the scientists on the ADS payroll going to pick?
Did you miss the part where I called it a sales pitch? I don't think anyone was confused about Mr. Cramer's intentions, he was very upfront about them. However for the most part his arguments and points made regarding camouflage were perfectly valid.
Kyptek was a non-starter, it is not a Garrison uniform and we all know the Army can not, not have a Garrison uniform.
Can you elaborate please? What makes one pattern a garrison uniform and not another? Does the Army have fashion police? Wait, don't answer that.
Lastly, that bill looming for 2018 that says standard uniform across the board, if you don't think the other branches told the Army they could eat a dick if they didn't choose multicam, you are living in denial.
You mean the other branches that are so eager to preserve their own "heritage" and unique identities that insist on having multiple redundant camouflage patterns that takes an act of congress to un-cluter f***k? Those same guys that always agree on everything? Ok.
