    So far, blue-colored training apparel has been seen mainly by police and Chinese marines. The blue DPM, on the other hand, was made for the British army.

    Basically, the dark blue pattern does not hide well in greenish, brownish, and yellowish environments. But this is not the purpose in this case, as the blue pattern was made for the "counter-force" units of the British army.

    Using the special pattern is not new, the French army uses black patterns, the American uses gray, green, sand colors, while the Lithuanian army also uses blue patterns to distinguish opposing members.

    Clothing is the same as the MTP patterned practitioner. In addition to the full training suit, a helmet cover, UBACS and a smock were made of this material. The pattern appeared not only in the Suffield training unit, but also in the units of the motherland.

    Suffield has to be aware that this is the largest training ground for the British Army, not in the island country but in Canada. Its size is 19% compared to Northern Ireland, which allows it to carry quite extensive and extensive exercises.

    I have the Smock, UBAC, Trousers, mk7 helmet cover and blue scrim, shorts and crap hat. Only piece I’m missing is the shirt.

    I have been told this is dead stock now (don’t know if this is true) as units are reverting to dying their kit.

    Thank you for your info and pics, Lee!

    A curious fact - such colours scheme and sometimes even DPM-pattern in Russia are allocated to police anti-riot troops - OMOH (Отряд Милиции Особого Назначения) and to the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service - ФСИН (Федеральная Служба Исполнения Наказаний)...

    From images in last months Soldier magazine and looking in the current combat clothing catalogue the full range of jacket (shirt), smock, shorts, cap, blanking plates with and without flag and helmet cover are still on issue, in the notes box for issue as part of the personal clothing system.

    From what I've seen of it though the only way one can get their hands on it is to be in a unit that's being employed solely as OPFOR (currently this appears to be Yorkshire Regt), the stores bod where all the stock is held or being pally with a QM that doesn't pay attention to what they're ordering or ask questions and isn't shut down by higher authority. That or being extremely lucky and finding the rare bits sold on surplus in your size at non-astronomical prices.

    What little I've seen for sale is mostly in midget sizes though.
