Frick these

What technology needs to be invented to make these ugly uniforms obsolete so that we can go back to some actually attractive fits? this is atrocious especially when employed in an urban environment.

    unpopular opinion: I liked ABUs and how well they fit. They had numbered sizing so you could really get a crisp looking uniform, nowadays everybody just gets medium regular OCPs and looks like they're wearing a canvas bag.

      ABUs were super crisp, especially when they first came out. The integrated no iron features lasted, and the earliest runs before they got the color right had some really badass "Greys" that were mostly grey and blue.

    Honestly I'm sick of camouflage as a regular duty uniform, I don't understand the point of it. It's perfectly fine as a piece of equipment which is fit to purpose. If you are going on a mission and you need to blend in with some undergrowth, then sure, put on some camouflage. If you're just some butthole mechanic who sits on base all day and is never in a scenario where you would need to sneak around, why the FRICK are you wearing camouflage? Who are you hiding from? The Staff Sergeant? Too bad fricko their vision is based on movement.

An average set costs like $600, it's fricking stupid to leave it in your closet your entire career and wear it like twice after boot camp for some retirement ceremony or some shit.

    It would make sense to pick another pattern since everyone uses some version of OCP and it probably wasn't tested with drones in mind.
    Unfortunately, it would have to be a joint service pattern to get approved and God knows the Marines will hold on to MARPAT for the next century.

    It's a cut and design issue, the pattern is fine.

    I wear the IHWCU exclusively. Being a crayon-eater branch traitor, I can say with confidence that the MCCUU in either pattern is aesthetically more pleasing than IHWCU, mostly due to a lack of bullshit Velcro, having breast pockets, and a slightly better cut HOWEVER, it is less comfortable than an off-the-rack IHWCU unless severely salted by use and age. Standard ACU cut OCP is trash.

    Multiscam. And ocp is even marginally worse.
    Everyone knows atacs ix, atacs fx and atacs u|con (their take on multicam) is the superior camo pattern.
    Everyone knows that units should get specific camo for where they're deployed.
    Everyone knows that the old CADPAT for example was a good specialized camo pattern, specifically canadas evergreen forests.
    Everyone knows that most members wearing a camoflage uniform will never see combat
    Everyone knows that combat units in a modern war are basically neglecting the use of their camo uniforms with bright identification markers (Dont act like friendly fire will completely be eliminated with the proper c3 and IVAS the US Army has)
    And everyone knows that camo is a scam in modern military combat.
    and that proper NIR treatment is arguable as important and that camoflage isnt worth shit without going the extra mile:
    using face paint and camoing the rifle and gear with foliage, sniper veil, tape and paint, as well as issuing extra camo pieces of kit (kapkan from rainbow six siege cape), and just generally getting the uniform dirty with the local earth
    These extra mile steps are largely unable to be issued by and large to the whole us army. However, combat units definitely get these or at least should be, so thats all that really matters.
    Everyone knows that the camouflage uniform isnt really that important... Ocp has been in service for like 20 or 25 years, kek. And UCP...

            I mean it's not like they slide off after taking 10 steps. but try going on a 5+ mile ruck with any bulky strap-on knee pads, they're not going to stay in place for the whole march.
            however, if ya get into a scenario where have to be low for an extended amount of time it's nice to have em on the ready vs in ruck.

            tbf there's pro/con for the hard shells vs the inserts. much rather have the shells on sharp rocky terrain cuz inserts are so thin, though rocky mnt terrain also going to make the shells move around more w/ the amount of high knee movement vs flat land marching.

    >What technology needs to be invented to make these ugly uniforms obsolete
    In terms of """realistic""", #1: Some sort of color e-ink system that can be made into clothing (microscales over fiber maybe) and thus change color/pattern at command. That in turn would let it both adapt camo to any environment, or change from camo to some other chosen pattern at will. Though it wouldn't negate the need for a reasonable shape, so you're still not getting the ultra fancy stuff of yore out of it which isn't practical anyway. Still, hardly impossible or even far out as a matter of physics and material science. And e-ink style systems take no power except when changing.

    Realistic but less fun #2: No more infantry, or at most any remainder are in power armor or cyborg combat bodies or something. /k/ hates it but this is probably the path we're on. If bare humans no longer have any direct role on the battlefield, everyone is either in a vehicle or remote running drones or the like, well no longer matters what they wear and uniform camo becomes obsolete.

    Magic: force shields, magic cloaking shields.

        Sure but that has nothing to do with the human body, which can still have whatever fancy uniform you want at that point. I assume the insectoid bot combat body will have active camo built into its skin, but end of mission when they swap your e-brain back into your civvie body you could look good.

        would PolySpan briefs be good for combat?

        I'd say is mostly personal preference. I just prefer boxers or boxer-briefs over the issued tan colored "white-y tighties" style briefs. down side if underwear with legs is they like to ride up, but feel like they prevent chafing to some degree.

        as for fabric i'd say try out some rayon (also known as viscose or bamboo). is a wood pulp fabric that's soft like high quality cotton but almost somewhere between poly and silk in it's smoothness. is very breathable and has good temp regulation. my bed sheets and shirts are all rayon now and i'll never go back to cotton ones.

          This is mostly a myth. Surely, friendly fire happened, and maybe even because some itchy-fingered GI thought someone in camo was SS, but the reason it didn't see more widespread use is related more closely with logistics. It takes a lot to outfit a lot of guys with something, especially something new. Even in the Pacific, where there was no SS camo and where camo would have been super useful, it's not really that common. Okinawa was invaded April 1945 and not even 100% of Marines were wearing camo.

                The NWU Type 1 (blueberries) despite being 50% cotton 50% nylon, were a heavy twill material instead of the lighter-weight ripstop. The heavy twill caused it to melt and drip when burned since it was simply too much fabric to burn away cleanly.

USAF firefighters all wear OCP 2-piece FR flight suits now. the fabric isn't some magic. it's easy enough to manufacture on an economy of scale. the pricing is just part of simple business with these lucrative govt contracts. individual poorgays need not apply.

Their products made by government contracts have a fixed price, which is unironically cheaper than what propper commercially sells. For example, Commercial FRACUs from propper cost $100+ to buy while their government contracted shit that you buy on the PX cost like $45.

                The shit you buy on their website are NOT made by government contracts. They are made by proppers commercial lines in the Dominican republic, outside of government contracts. They trick people into thinking they are getting the same shit contracted by the government, when in reality its been out sourced and charged 4x the price than what you get on ebay/the px for a product that is not even berry compliant(unlike their actual contracted shit)

                if you are dealing with actual direct flame hazards in civilian life (bombings, ied, flame troopers, industrial) you need invest in yourself and get legit made in usa FR gear from ebay or crye or massif.

                Government contracted/made in USA FR gear seems good in my experience. I got crye Drifire and contracted FRACU/FROGs. They seem good while also having fire protection. Although pretty sure crye sells 2 versions of fire resistant gear. One made specifically by them and the other made in collaboration with drifire(like the one i got)

        The Army used M1942 Duck Hunter too, but it was withdrawn from Europe because it was too similar to the (much more widely issued) SS camouflage patterns.

        From a glance it does look like Erbsenmuster or one of the other Waffen SS camos.

    Get rid of fricking velcro and stop making soldiers cram their pants legs in their boots for photo ops and OCPs are fine. Summers look a lot better just for getting rid of the homosexual chest pockets as well.

      There is no Velcro unless you're too lazy to get your shit sewn on.

        I have literally never met anyone with sewn-on shoulder patches. Ever. Getting that shit sewn on SHOULD be mandatory, though.

    How about the military just simplify the uniform based on what the where the solider is and what the soldier does?

    Perhaps you should show us what you would like changed with a picture instead of just whining about the current uni.

    >What technology needs to be invented to make these ugly uniforms obsolete
    New dyes that have UV reflectivity that matches foliage so they don't stand out like a neon sign on IR cameras. Also a new, stronger type of weave or layer-to-layer interlock braid to allow seamless construction of most of the pants and tunic (seams only at the shoulders, crotch). These are possible but I don't think it will be the reason that a switch is made.

      Technology will not make camouflaged uniforms obsolete since reasons of material science advancements will merge to form the perfect symphony.

    Do Army pants stretch out with wear considered they're made out of ripstop ?

      no.

      >ripstop
      >stretch
      Both ripstop and twill are never stretchy. They are both baggy to prioritize movement, with ripstop being less thick for breathability while maximizing durability. The only ones that have stretch materials are those that have built in kneepads like in cryes or army contracted crye combat pants.
