Hagel UniformityDefense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the days of designing service specific camouflage patterns and plate carriers are over. The Defense Department just can’t afford it anymore.

A soldier at Fort Bragg, N.C., asked the defense secretary if standard issue will apply across the services during one of Hagel’s stops during his trip along the East Coast last week. Hagel’s answer was simple and to the point.

“Yes … we’re being forced to.” What’s forcing the Defense Department’s hand is sequestration and the resulting reductions to the defense budget.

Congress has already written language restricting the services from designing their own camouflage patterns unless it could be used across the military. Committee members voted 32-20 to require the services to settle on a joint combat uniform by 2018 and restrict the creation of any new camouflage patterns unless it’s designed for a joint uniform.

Services officials will also have to combine pools of funding in order to start and execute new weapons programs. Budget cuts have put almost every modernization program in jeopardy. Smaller budgets have forced service leaders to get creative and find ways to combine programs with other services in order to have access to more funds.

U.S. Army officials had been ready to announce the Army Combat Uniform until the legislation was released in the defense budget. Now, the Army is seemingly on a pause as leaders wait to review the rules and see the effects from Congress.

However, Hagel said the old ways of doing business are over as it looks likely that sequestration and the $500 billion in cuts over the next ten years are here to stay.

“We’re going to be forced to change things,” Hagel said at Fort Bragg. “The fact is every program in the Defense Department is accountable. We’re going to be changing business about how we do a lot of things.”

Whichever one is cheaper (AOR or MARPAT) to produce should be chosen. I just hope we don't refit our entire military with a completely new uniform(like US4CES which would cost a big chunk o pocket change). That would be a waist of resources and money… and we are currently short on both.

FL5001 July 28, 2013 at 2:56 pm

No. You pick a new camouflage uniform for it's effectiveness, not because of the low cost. Why do you think the DOD and USA are in this position? They went for cheap, and signed off on UCP which had terrible performance scores in testing. AOR1 and AOR2 are more effective than MARPAT. US4CES (all three variants) are more effective than both in day,night/IR testing.

As for cost, that depends on how much the licence costs. I guarantee you it will be less than you imagine. Further cost cuts are easy. For instance, if all contracts for MOLLE gear/plate carriers etc were in coyote brown for all services, it would technically reduce cost even if you are issuing a new uniform. CB isn't copyrighted, so you would pay nothing to Crye/Hyperstealth/whoever won the uniform contract for using the licence again. Plus bigger contracts tend to reduce prices, at least on the non-green side of the fence anyway.

Adam July 25, 2013 at 11:00 am

AOR is simply an older variation of MARPAT without the Marine Corps Emblem incorporated. NAVSPECWAR employs AOR 1 and 2.

If its good enough for the high speed guys who are worth millions it should be good enough for everyone else IMO.

AOR is vertical, different colors and the USN emblem throughout. NSW wear whatever fits their mission. Or did you mean only NSW can wear AOR1? Any squid can wear AOR2. The USMC weren't bothered about AOR2 as the difference in pattern is clear and nobody could be mistaken for a Marine unlike AOR1.

MARPAT has the USMC logo in it. While its effective, the print would have to be changed so might as well use whatever won the Army's competition.

I'm good with how "restricting the services from designing their own camouflage patterns" briefs, but am very leery of the 'just as good as' mentality; that flawed thinking is how Blackhawk, VooDoo and Fobus stay in business.

What works for an Airman might not work for a Marine; likewise a Seaman doesn't need what a Soldier needs.

This is missing the big disclaimer – DOES NOT APPLY TO SPECIAL OPERATIONS (or those who THINK they are).

Reply

Ryan July 24, 2013 at 3:00 am

What was wrong with the different branches sharing the DCU and woodland BDUs? MARPAT and AOR patterns have been the only branch specific patterns that have been a step up, everything else has just been a step backwards so the respective branches can have an 'identity'. If the different branches are working in the same environment, why would they have different requirements? Yeah, a liney at Bagram seeing jets off might not NEED to wear the same combat uniform as an 11B out at a FOB but there is also no need to have a completely different uniform for them when the combat uniform does the job. Other militaries around the world manage to share uniforms and equipment between branches, so why can't the US military?

Reply

Marc July 24, 2013 at 12:13 pm

Because they will not produce a uniform for what the combat troops need when it has features and costs that everyone else doesn't need; they will develop it for the masses and make everyone adapt to the lowest common denominator.

If what you say is true, why haven't we just adopted the Crye Multicam uniform and moved on??? If its good enough for Special Operations, then everyone else should be good, right?!?

Reply

majr0d July 24, 2013 at 6:15 pm

Examples of how equipment is designed for the lowest common denominator would help your case. Haven't seen it with helmets, boots, bayonets or uniforms.

SOF is not using multicam. NSW is using AOR, Army SF uses a variety of camo to include multicam. Marine MARSOC has been seen using woodland.

Reply

Marc July 25, 2013 at 5:56 am

You do realize a lot of the differences are just semantics (like the helmets) and/or generational improvements, right? Others (like the bayonet) represent more useful improvements. The M9 is bigger and slightly more useful than the M7, the Ontario is very similar to the Kabar (continuity/familiarity and better suited to other uses than the M9).

FL5001 July 28, 2013 at 3:47 pm

MARSOC have used M81 woodland to blend in with the ANA, not with the physical environment. Look around and you'll find pictures of blokes wearing digital pattern ANA uniforms as well, from all branches including USMC.

@robhutchins July 27, 2013 at 9:22 am

Not true.
The Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Canadian Air Force *are* separate branches, of the Canadian Forces. Same thing as the US having 5 branches of their Armed Forces. (Ok…USMC is part of the USN, and USGC is under DHS…)
But in general, yep, a single camo patten works up here…when it's available in your size and you don't have to 'share', that is. And there are growing pains…the combat sombrero, for instance, IMHO needs the brim size to be readdressed!

Riceball August 1, 2013 at 1:13 pm

The US Marine Corps is NOT a part of the Navy, we're an independent branch of the service under the Department of the Navy. While it sounds a lot like the same thing it is not, the main difference being that the Commandant of the Marine Corps does not report to the Chief of Naval Operations as he would if the Corps were part of the Navy, instead he reports directly to the SecNav just like the CNO does.

I think the primary rationale behind USN camo was to ensure that paint, grease, and other stains weren't readily apparent on the uniform.
Being able to wear a perfectly good uniform that happened to have a permanent stain, rather than having to replace it, makes sense to the wallet of your average sailor.
Having a uniform that would make it extremely difficult to visibly pick you out of rough water if you fell overboard…well, that doesn't make sense.

About time.

There's no reason troops fighting the same enemy in the same theatre need different combat uniforms.

The same can be said for different helmets, body armor, bayonets and boots.

All this "uniqueness" does is drive up costs because equipment/uniforms are bought in smaller more expensive batches not to mention the cost of multiple project development teams and efforts. This will annoy the gearheads and tacticool types but it makes sense.

The reason for camo is to make one blend -in with your surroundings. Now think (I know that will be hard for you) a guy in the navy needs to blend in with the water, a soldier in the desert would need to blend in with the sand, a special ops person might have to blend in with a forest. You're funny and you must be a bean counter with no experience in the field. They should make you bean counters wear this one size fits all uniform in combat. I bet you would think twice before open your mouths!!!!!!! Want to bet?

Spot – Thanks for the advice. I suggest you go looking for your owner though. Show him your typing skills. He'll make a mint. Watch out Letterman another cool pet trick!

Yes, I'm familiar with camo served in the Infantry for two decades and have been in combat. You probably don't know that SOF and Marines were fighting in the same place quite often. Just to be clear I'm not against camo uniforms though camo should be something you do not only something you buy. You may want to check out my articles over on SOFREP.com you might learn something though I don't know why a dog would need a camo uniform.

BTW, be happy to bet but I don't need any kibbles and bits or rawhide bones. :)

@robhutchins July 27, 2013 at 9:28 am

A guy in the Navy doesn't necessarily want to blend in with the water you go overboard and they never find you. The ships are gray or shades there of to make the ships less visible. A universal camouflage that can be tailored to different environments is best, unless you want to keep up 8 sets of uniforms like the old BDU / DCU days.

Reply

soupy264 July 27, 2013 at 2:51 pm

Maybe Hagel can now insist that Base Commanders end the needless cost to enlisted members of forcing them to have all pockets sewn closed, in the foolish need of proper visual appearance.
The DOD pays for 10 pockets on a BDU, then some egomaniac with a bird or star on his shoulder says they need to be sewn closed, to give proper respect to the USA.
While in Desert Storm in '91 the group I was with were the only ones in the desert in European Green Camos., because of the cost. The only people wearing Desert Camos., were the guys in the Pilot Sqn., who only came out in the open for lunch and going to the tents

Reply

majr0d July 27, 2013 at 3:28 pm

In 24 years of wearing the uniform I never heard of a commander ordering pockets to be sewn close.

You were not the only one in green woodland uniforms. I served as an Infantry officer in 3-5 Cav of the 3rd Armored Division and fought against elements of three different Iraqi divisions to include the Tawalkana Republican Guard in woodland uniforms as did the majority of my infantry battalion. It wasn't because of money. There weren't enough to go around. I always wondered why airmen on an airfield would be issued desert camo before the front line infantry.

I don't think it's as big of a deal for the Marine Corps. They used their own budget to create their own pattern and it's worked well for them. The problem seems to be with Big Army. Their changes and failures COST BIG TIME. I'm ok with branches having different Camo. No big deal I say.

Reply

majr0d July 24, 2013 at 6:22 pm

We have half a century of experience of shared patterns. Different patterns because of copyrighting and refusing to share patterns has caused EIGHT different patterns. There's a cost to developing, fielding and stocking multiple patterns. Ego isn't worth that much. Dress uniforms distinguish the branches and in the field a name tape was good enough from WWII to 2001.

There's a lesson there.

Reply

Allan Hamilton July 29, 2013 at 1:24 pm

3D printers "print" three dimensional objects by layering the medium in a method similar to applying ink to the face of a sheet of paper with each pass of the printhead building up on the previous pass. In the case of textile printers, these are strictly 2-D and actually do print like a paper printer. Given similar ink coverage and density for each pattern, the cost would be nearly identical between designs. The cost is not in the weave and it's not in the digital file that describes the pattern. It's in the amount of ink used over a given area. Color changes to a pattern should not affect cost – only a change to a pattern that used more ink would cost more.

Marc the helmet differences are more than just semantics. Check out the suspension system inside the helmet. The size is also different and the Marine helmets are heavier They look the same to someone that hasn't seen both or knows what to look for. The Marines were also using the M9 bayonet. It just wasn't a switch from the M7.

FL5001 – understand SOF wears different uniforms, numerous ones. My point was SOF just doesn't wear crye multicam and the logic that we should just issue that.

Since we are on the subject. Only certain units in the ANA wear woodland and it's in change. I have no problem SOF wearing different uniforms even to just blend with the locals but often they wear different uniforms just to be different whether it's admitted or not. The fashion show thought process runs strong and deep.
