    Experimental 4-color ERDL Arid Camouflage

    Post by Flecktarn92 on Thu Aug 19, 2010 10:20 pm

    Does anybody know about this pattern or have pictures? According to wikipedia's page of military camouflages of the world it is "Based on Transitional ERDL, but in dark brown, tan, earth sand and light green" also it was used around the late 1970's.

    I have a jacket that I have never been able to identify, here's the picture:

    Your shirt looks like an oddly faded M81 woodland short to me.

    I think that's the Abu Dhabi/Thule pattern they're referring to.

    this kind of looks like a 70's or 80's bdu that is really faded. I have a few in my collection that have the same fading black on it but I am not to strong in the camo section that is just what I think

    It is a BDU camo in RDF cut. During the transition of RDF to BDU.

    It is very faded that clours looked strange.

    RDF cut has split bellowed pockets, so this isn't RDF.

    This looks a really faded, defective printing BDU top. I've seen some nearly this bad before, especially in ripstop (Hot Weather).

    Well after a year I found a possibility as to what this is, a South Korean uniform, apparently during the 80s they experimented with altering them and this apparently was an attempt at a desert variant. More info here http://camopedia.org/index.php?title=South_Korea
