    couple of questions

    Post by bond007a1 on Mon Feb 16, 2009 5:05 pm

    Ok...I have got 2 questions....1st off how many uniforms are the Aust. Army issued when going to say Afghanistan or Iraq?

    2nd has the Australians ever utilized a 6 colour chocolate chip pattern uniform? say in the early 1990's. I have never heard of this occuring nor have I seen photos. I asked this on another forum and the response was the knowledge... Can you shed any light on this fo me?

    1st question - not sure but I'm certain it'd be no less than two and no more than 4.

    2nd question - officially: No. However ... some undoubtedly would have been used by personnel playing OpFor. These would have been private purchase as the system sometimes does not come through with OpFor uniforms when required. I myself wore a commercial choc-chip whilst playing OpFor for a number of years. US issue choc-chip is still available at the main surplus chain in this country.

    I was issued four sets of dpcu's for domestic use so I'm presuming that thats the basic issue you'd get for going overseas on deployment?

    I too saw some guys playing opFor in WA wearing Choc-chip, amongst other patterns, all were private purchase
