    Yep. As well as DPCU, which apparently works very well in the green zones.

    But now all combat troops (RAINF and others) are being issued with and using Crye multicams.

    Check the media galleries and archives at defence.gov.au and army.gov.au for photos.

    Mr "Bare feet" Duncan is prob the best to ask more about this.

    We do get issued dpdu 125 uniforms for barrack wear in the middle east.
    we are now getting isued crye multicam for outside the wire patrols,on my trip we had dpcu and it was one of the best other than multicam for afghanistans greenzone some combat troops mostly use dpcu or multicam hope that helps
