    And they could have had MultiCam instead of UCP to begin with. I really hope someone got fired over the BS of selecting UCP, but somehow I doubt it.

    If they outfitted two battalions, the numbers are likely to be fewer than a couple thousand. That would be 2 per soldier plus unused examples in less popular sizes. If you want to get an idea of how rare this will be, the CCU was issued to two brigades. A guess would be 15,000 CCUs were manufactured. The experimental Navy uniforms were also made in the 10s of thousands based on the hand written serial numbers I've seen. Therefore, I expect the Deltas to be far harder to find than either the CCU or NWU, but maybe a little easier than the CU?

    Thanks Steve. Form what I heard about 8000 CCU 1st contract and another 8000 (or 8800 can't remember) (C)CU 2nd contract were made.

    8000 would be enough to outfit everybody in one Brigade with 2 uniforms each with a few hundred spares, so that number seems about right for the first issue of CCU. The thing is... if they produced just as many CUs as CCUs, then why are CCUs so easy to come by and CUs nearly impossible to find? To me this indicates that far less CUs were made than CCUs.
