Budget cuts. Benefit reductions. Witch hunts to get down headcount among enlisted and officers down...$1 TRILLION for the F35 And here we are, the Army has finally selected a new camo pattern to replace the abhorrent ACU UCP (Universal-LOL-Camo-Pattern). That new pattern is Scorpion W2 or OCP. And here it is... It replaces this cluster... The cluster of UCP and adoption of OCP is interesting because back in 2004 the Army had the chance to use something very similar to Scorpion W2 called Multicam. Army didn't want to paying a licensing arrangement to the pattern owners so they went with their own 3 color digital UCP. AND IT SUCKED!!!! It flat out doesn't work in most environments. So what does the army do? Double down and spend $5 billion on UCP uniforms and gear. Well soldiers keep bitching because it still doesn't work. All operators start buying Multicam, while the big army rabble are saddled with the digital nightmare. Well here we are...doing in 2014 what we had the chance to do in 2004. UCP was supposed to save money, well it's already $5, billion in the hole as far as I am concerned. Tax dollars at work.
