Brits Ship New Camo to Afghanistan

The Brits have sent their new camouflage uniforms to Afghanistan

Soldiers began wearing the new Multi-Terrain Pattern (MTP) camouflage in Afghanistan in April 2010. It will be issued to all military personnel by 2012.

The camouflage is intended to help British troops blend into Afghanistan's varied terrain.

It was trialled in laboratory tests and field evaluations to assess overall performance, with pilot trials held before the final testing. This included aerial and scientific photography to provide the right colours and brightness for the new camouflage pattern.
