    The new pattern seems almost like a hybrid between DPCU & DPDU.

    I had heard (and saw through photos) that the current DPCU was working fairly well in Afghanistan, due to the balance of green & arid colouration in the pattern. When did the push for a different camo come around?

    Because they want to save the cost of it , they are trying to make one camo to replace DPCU and DPDU. ADF is very poor .

    If they have little money to spend, before making a costly decision; learn from us American's mistake in regard to camouflage -- there is no such thing "one size fits all" for every environment. lol!

    Soon enough, the whole world will be wearing Multicam or some variant thereof...lol!
    In my opinion and based on photos I have seen, standard DPCU would be a great option as a singular camo pattern for the ADF (and certainly better than ACU we tried as a "universal" pattern).

    Based on the colouration of DPCU and colours found in most of the likely "deployment zones", it's actually not a bad choice at all. I know for a fact that if I was wearing DPCU in the woods near my house in early to middle fall and in the early spring that I would without a doubt completely disappear!

    Think about it; the Brits found that their woodland camo actually fared better in some areas of Afghanistan than the desert pattern. The logic is the same with Auscam. There's always shades of green and brown in nature, both in the desert despite only minimal vegetation, as well as in a temperate or jungle setting with considerably more vegetation present. Auscam has enough of both colours in different shades to work well in both. While it may not be "perfect" for one situation over another, it is designed properly enough to be "good" in all situations instead of perfect in just one.

    Plus they'd save a little money, as they do have a quite effective pattern... if it's not broke, why fix it? Cool

    i agree with you , but how about DPDU seems better in Iraq ? so i think every countries want to make a camo for every environment . Multicam seems the best to do it.

    Camo_fiend has hit the nail right on the head. Despite my initial distaste for Auscam I have to concede that it is quite effective at most distances. I recently had the fortune to attend a military shooting competition which featured teams from many countries. The effectiveness of different countries cam patterns were noted against various backgrounds and Auscam fares remarkably well. The current trend of pixellising patterns in a way is a backward step as it renders the pattern less effective at longer distances although I have heard that it is more effectiveness in confusing night vision devices.

    I personally would like to see Flecktarn, which I regard to be one of the most effective patterns for close/middle/long range, in temperate Auscam colours.

    As for the ADF, they might be poor, but when it comes to outfitting the fighting man on operations, they do make a considerable effort in trying to 'get it right'.

    An Auscam-coloured flecktarn-style pattern would be very cool indeed... I hadn't even thought of that. Very good idea, for sure!

    I agree with the pixelised camo, it may look cool and bug out the NVGs, but it just creates so much saturation at longer distances that it appears as a solid colour.

    Something like flecktarn and DPCU is a good middle ground between micro-patterned digital and macro-patterns like the old US woodland BDU.
