    It's actually a fricking good pattern, but the reasons it's good aren't immediately apparent, and so everyone decided to hate it.
    As is, in arid, semi-arid, or even areas on the edge of temperate, or in mountains, it makes you almost invisible.
    Everywhere else, much like the SA patterns, you're supposed to get them dirty with local dirt. It excels at breaking up your silhouette, making it more difficult to discern movement, especially at distance, thus making you a lot harder to shoot at accurately, eyeball distance or direction, etc.
    It's also works shockingly well against NV.
    It wouldn't surprise me one iota if its effectiveness was significantly hampered by Army brass demanding mint condition gear even in FOBs.

      This seems accurate. I remember being told to replace my uniforms and boots because they were dirty on several occasions

      So troops new in theater either are fricked for their first couple engagements or they all just roll around the FOB in company formations when they arrive?

      Oh bull shit, this is and has always been post-hoc cope. You were able to salvage it, that's great, but rationalizing that it was the intent all along is just willful delusion.
      >It's also works shockingly well against NV.
      No it doesn't. Its NIR like any modern uniform, but the pattern blurs into a flat color at a few yards. Patterns with higher color contrast like marpat are better.

      if UCP was such a great pattern why did they start looking for other options to replace it only 9 years after adopting it, while MARPAT was adopted 3 years before UCP and is still in use to this day?

        MARPAT is still used because the Muhreens consider it one of their trademarks for recruitment purposes. It's quite funny because the raison d'etre of camouflage is to make the wearer inconspicuous, and you'd think we'd want all branches of our armed forces to use the best camouflage for the situation instead of allowing one branch to wear it exclusively. Just goes to show you that the US military is full of homosexuals who care more about putting on fashion shows and prancing around with their thumbs up their asses than being effective warfighters.

      Soldiers that wore it report differently.

    It's been explained like 10,000 times that it looks fine in mountainous regions, and makes your very hard to spot under night vision.

    Didn't we already have a thread about this?

    The general consensus is that it's nothing ground breaking, just a symbol of GWOT era combat.looks better when dirty and sun worn.

      i.e. the camo is defective from the factory and will always be defective in a military obsessed with protocol and presentation.

    Because of shitty branch rivalry.
    >marines wouldn't let army use the camo because autism
    >army develops their own camo to compete with marines
    >the camo seems fine on paper, but have obvious issues in practice/production
    Originally, its supposed to be more like the MM14. The camo seems fine under night vision and also blends well in environments if its gets dirty enough.

    It was an amazingly successful psyop to get all our enemies to wear absurd, easy to spot uniforms.

    CADPAT was cool. The Marines decided to steal the pattern for MARPAT. The Army decided to go digital too, but picked a pattern that was only good in gravel pits and sage brush.

      I had to wear this pattern for 8 years.
      I thought it was stupid at the time, but looking back, it wasn't like we were hiding most if the time.
      The enemy knew where we were and thanks to Raven and Shadow drones, we knew where (most) of them were.
      We might as well have been wearing blue 19th century uniforms.
      Most of the time I felt like a Star Wars. stormtrooper.
      It does decently in winter environments, especially in pine forests.
      Sage brush is where it excels so far that I thought it might have been tested in Yakima.
      It's reasonable in a western urban environment but not perfect.
      All and all, strangely aesthetic but absolutely garbage.
