Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

The soldiers on the picture below were spotted on a major base during a demonstration for the SMP (Soldier modernisation programme)
They are wearing a new prototype camouflage pattern, its expected to enter the service in 2014.
All branches of the army will wear it, this to make an end to the various uniforms worn by different branches of the armed forces.
Its made by Ten Cate and it shows a modern print.
However it shows a clear resemblence with an old programme from the 1980's which was terminated, this scheme had a dot pattern like the German Flecktarn.
Unfortunately that specific camo looked a lot like the rare Waffen SS summer 1944 pattern, so it was cancelled for that reason.



See link from Ten Cate the manufacturer for more pictures.

Last week soldiers from the airmobile brigade on Curacao tested this clothing as well.
They wore both the standard and the desert cloths.
Looking good now.
With some luck we will receive this new uniform next year!

News,

The new uniform is being tested.
Rumours say the new variant will enter the service in 2015.
2 variants are made, the one shown above for western Europe and a pattern with more yellow dots for warm areas.

Picture new uniforms
