    A-TACS camo

    Post by Flecktarn92 on Thu Aug 18, 2011 1:00 am

    I went to my favorite surplus store today and saw that the guy had some new Propper brand A-TACS camo. It was to much for me at the moment but I now really like the pattern. Is it being used by the US military now? And does anyone have any sets or more info?

    Do a search for A-TACS, it is commercial only. There are some sets floating around, I thought of buying a boonie hat in that pattern

    When multicam came out, they said definitively this is the last camo you will ever need!

    They had tables set up at the big gun show with this ATACS pattern a while back, even other gear makers are offering it for their rigs. Just when you think they have reached the apex of design, another pattern comes out. What’s next?

    I quite like the pattern as well, it looks like it will blend in well with some of the arid regions in which we train in. Additionally, as OpFor I can pretty much well wear whatever pattern I like in the field. I've looked online but prices range seem to range from $59.95 upwards per top or bottom. I haven't seen pics of operators wearing whole uniforms (yet) but pics exist of various pieces of webbing in A-TACs being worn operationally.

    Every time I visit my local surplus shop the owner tries to spiel me on the ATACS in how it's the latest greatest issue of the US Army and special forces, and every time I correct him that it hasn't been issued to anyone and is a purely commercial design in which I have no interest. It's becoming a chore.

    The current pattern that is out is for Arid environments, they have other patterns with a different color scheme in the works

    A-Tacs must have been designed by a automotive panelbeater - primer grey with black guide coat = A-Tacs. D.I.Y camo. A couple of cans of spray paint and you are done!

    I took the plunge and bought a set from SORD Australia which worked out to be considerably cheaper than getting them imported from overseas. They work very well in the bush here (South Australia) as it is largely arid with light to medium density scrub. As our forces usually conduct initial MRE's here before deploying to the sandpit I might assume that they'd work quite well over there too ...



    Taken a few days ago - OpFor element for field exercise. First two from left wear Aust 3-color OpFor shirt with DPCU pants, as is the third. Centre person has OpFor pants, I am on the right with A-TACs and sand bush hat. Unfortunately I don't have a better picture of the uniform against a background.

    Can you provide a little more info on these?

    Reason I ask is that all I can find here in the my neck of the woods is the Propper ACU pattern ATACS stuff.

    Your example shows actual chest pockets (not velcro test spots like the ACU).

    TIA

    If you read the post before the one you quoted, he says he got it from SORD Australia.

    Yep, and it doesn't provide manufacturer's info (I'd rather not have to order one from Australia if I don't have to)

    most OPFOR's seem to...I think many of them take it as a point of pride Smile

    Absolutely! I only went out with two uniforms this trip, the A-TACs and the Desert Tiger Stripe ... however, the geek in me sees my secret desire to have an OpFor det fitted out entirely as Imperial Stormtroopers!

    Incidentally, this is the pic that was moved from Post #9 - damn thing wouldn't let me re-edit ...
