Air Force Is Officially Adopting Army’s Operational Camouflage Pattern

Time for new digs!

The service has given the green light on the operational camouflage pattern for use by airmen and women. Starting October 1st.  The Air Force is adopting the U.S. Army’s operational camouflage pattern, which is already in use by Air Force special operations and ground combat units. But everyone in the Air Force needs camo, right? Wrong! Back in 2007, the Air Force introduced the airman battle uniform, which replaced the battle dress uniform used for several decades. This tan, grey, green and blue “pixelated” uniform featured the practical “tiger stripe” design commonly used by special forces back in the 'Nam. The Air Force will dish out $237 million over three years on their uniform makeover. What do you think of the Air Force's uniform decision? Let us know in the comments!
