British army goes for a colour makeover | UK news | guardian.co.uk
It's good to see the MoD finally adopted a style of vehicle that has seen effective service with the SADF and SWATF for a mere 30 plus years.
Brown is the new Green sweetie. The Army should be two things - Classy and Fabulous; and I'm glad that the Army is taking fashion seriously. It still has an issue with the need to promote Ambi-Turners on drill though.
At least we now all know that next ops will be somewhere temperate and temperate DPM will follow on about 6 months in.
The foxhounds that came into Herrick last year are already that colour. I can't really see that much difference. It's more like a darker desert buff tone, not really brown. Unless the image from the Guardian doesn't do it justice.
Could it be nearer these shades?
Aah, the good old "sharky". A cunning mix of shit and khaki. Good camoflage for hiding in latrine pits and mud holes.
If you're going into the jungle, make a statement.
If you're going to fight, clash!

[serious head] Hindi for "soil" or "dirt" - can't remember which[/serious head]
The Hindi comes from Persian "xaki", earth coloured, I believe.
The fashionistas in our mob called it nutria back in the day.

That's true that is.
