The Army might have finally reached the end of its extensive quest to select a new standard-issue camouflage pattern for combat uniforms. More than four years ago, it began an intensive research and testing process in order to replace the highly criticized Universal Camouflage Pattern. Late this May, Military.com broke the news that the Army has selected the Scorpion pattern.

Currently, there is no official statement confirming the selection. As a result, there is no timeline available yet that confirms when this change will roll out. ¬†As more and more rumors surface, we’re dedicated to providing the most up-to-date and accurate information.

  1. Let me get this straight, first they spend a gazillion dollars to switch from woodland to UCP which was a mistake and everyone hated it……….then they switch to Multicam OCP which everyone loves…….then they are going to switch again to Scorpion rename it OCP even though multicam is already in the supply chain is being issued?

    I need to write to my congressman, this I truly ridiculous….they need to just stick with multqicam….it’s already being issued.

  2. This can’t be too far off Multi-cam, it looks the same from the photos provided, and if so why make an entirely ‘new’ pattern that is this close to an existing pattern. I realize based on the information I just read that the Military owns this pattern versus CRYE who owns the Mulitcam pattern so this is a more cost effective pattern to produce for our soldiers…but, I purchased a 5.11 Multicam uniform back in 2011 and it cost me around $150. So are we thinking that this Scorpion uniform will be less? I am all for spending less and getting more, but I would like to see the data that shows how Scorpion bested Multicam in the field as well as how the cost savings will be realized and what this savings will actually do for the Military…will that place the savings into spending on something else that will add value in the field? Or is this just strictly a cut-back related decision to go to Scorpion.

  3. I live in Arkansas and can tell you this would stick out and be seen easily. Stop looking for one pattern for all environments. The woodland camo pattern was excellent for our wooded areas. This pattern does have its place though. The mid-west plains and dessert areas. Of course neither would work in snow. All I am saying is stop spending taxpayer money trying to find a one size fits all pattern. I do understand though they are seeking a pattern that would work best in the type of environment the military would most likely deploy in for our time.

  4. SURE HOPE THEY ARE NOT GOING TO THE JUNGLE OR EVEN THE WOODS. IT’S EVEN MUCH TO LIGHT FOR NIGHT ANYWARE.

    LEAVE IT TO THE ARMY TO DECIDE WHAT ALL THE UNIFORM SERVICES WILL WEAR FOR COMBAT. JUST LIKE WHAT THE POOR GUYS HAVE HAD TO WEAR FOR YEARS. I HAVE NEVER HEARD A SOLDIER SAY ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT THEIR BDU’S SINCE THE OLD WOODLEN’S. I DO KNOW SOME GUYS THAT LIKE THIS ONE THOUGH, ALTHOUGH THEY ARE DESERT TYPES.
