    current uniforms???

    Post by bond007a1 on Mon Feb 08, 2010 3:27 pm

    OK...What camouflage uniforms are the Navy currently using? Do they have a set one or just whatever strikes their fancy?
    I am seeing them using woodland, 3 colour & the blue digital?

    from what I have seen in pictures They use Blue Digital for most applications , on land they use Desert or Woodland MARPAT.

    There might be some old stocks of Woodland and 3 color still in use , but I think it is being fazed out for all digi.

    US Navy is currently issuing the NWU for Navy wide use as a working uniform, and 3 color desert and woodland as Organizational gear like over in Iraq or A-stan. I think there will be a wearout date for the CUU (BDU) and DCU within the next couple of years.
    The Navy's organizational gear is changing too, they will be switching to the same pattern as the USMC, substituting the ACE for the EGA for both Woodland and Desert.

    The NWU is in our reference dictionary. That's why it was put there...

    Yeah..correct..I know what the NWU is, I used to have one of the experimental versions, but I am seeing them wearing 3 different kinds down in Haiti, and was wondering what was up with that.

    Im assuming a lot of the guys were not issued organizational gear before they shipped out to Haiti, so they just wore their spiffy new NWU's, while the other guys either had Organizational gear around because of their job or, they had enough time to receive it from Supply before they went there for the relief efforts.

    Actually... Navy Seals use them as well. I have reference photo but I'd have to dig.

    Remember, AOR camouflages are for generally special operations, not for specific SF units.
