    New Danish Multicam rumours

    Post by saltefanden on Wed Nov 16, 2011 2:35 pm

    Hi All,

    Just wanted to say I've heard from a Danish Army quartermaster, that they have been asked to clear room on their shelves for a new uniform system. The Danish Multicam is appearantly here, but whether it is M/84 spot-style take on Multicam colours or just a copy-paste of the boring old Crye pattern I do not know...

    I will keep you up to speed, Gentlemen.

    Don't think that it is only a rumor... M/11 kampuniform

    "multiterræn mønster". What a monster !

    Well, maybe it will be easier now to find M/01 and M/84.

    Very interesting. That'll be a really neat pattern if they decide to incoporate MultiCam colours into the existing spot pattern design.
    Please tell me that this means the Danish desert cams will soon become a bit easier to find! lol!

    Hi Tophe,

    Yes, that would be the only good outcome of a total switch from M/84 and desert T/99 or M/01 uniforms to Crye Multicam - but how boring and uninspired!

    Danish Army developers really should take inspiration from the Brittish, who took on Multicam in such a great way by adapting it to a DPM-style hybrid pattern. And a Fleck-type Multicam pattern would be interesting to see, in my head!

    As much as I admire Crye's effort to hit a 'universal pattern' I would hate to be caught in any tempered forest or woodland scenario in Multicams, unless it was in that über-short 1-2 weeks of fall where it might nail it...

    Hang on to your M/84's Gentlemen, they may soon be rarer than you've thought!

    How sad... I absolutely loathe Multicam for usurping the myriad of interesting and unique national camouflage patterns all over the world. It's like the McDonald's chain of the camo world. Very Happy

    heh... well, the "digital" craze already did that. Multicam is just trying to do it more effectively!

    Yup, that link worked great! Thanks very much. So 2013 is the first expected deployment. That's not very far away Smile

    Sorry if i touch someone's feelings but MULTICAM SUCKS!! and apparently Denmark autorities too.

    Replace one of the best and most effective patterns ever made with a "fashion" pattern!?

    Give me a break!

    The deployment date of 2013 means this will never be used in Afghanistan. This is a truly bizarre decision unless the Danes are somehow aware of plans and willing to participate in a new crusade through Iran this Christmas.

    I agree, it makes no sense.

    Danish temperate woodland was specifically made for the local vegetation and even M/01 desert camo works exeptionally well in Danish fall/winter.

    What looks to be the last contingent of Danish troops to Afghanistan will be the first to be kitted out in Multicams, probably with all M/01 frag vests and pouches anyway.
    And to simply destroy or mothball the 'old' stuff (or reserve it for our home guardmen) seems sacrilige.

    I really should take this up with my local Member of Parliament...

    Sounds interesting, first there was the rave of the so called 'Digicam' and now its 'Multicam', not that I'm complaining....well I am as everyone will look similar (friendly-fire) and the better camouflages will be rendered obsolete - DPM, Choc-Chip etc...

    Hi,

    I have been in contact with FMT ("Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization") asking for more information on the "Kampuniform M/11".
    The pattern is the Crye MultiCam pattern and not the British MTP. They couldn't provide any photos of the new uniform as it has not been produced yet... (the uniform on the photo in the press release is in fact American...)

    All the best!

    Hej Henrik,

    Did the good folks at FMT say anything more about a more specific date for an expected deployment to our troops? Mid-2013 was mentioned earlier, I beleive?

    Lastest statement from the Danish government said; all troops would be pulled from Afghanistan, no sooner than late 2014.

    So the use of the Multicam 'Kampuniform M/11' in the theater for which it is intended, will be limited to no more than 18 months - tops?

    Crazy... Crying or Very sad
