    UCP out! 3 new camo patterns in the works for the U.S. Army for 2012

    Post by HoovieDude on Tue Jan 03, 2012 2:16 pm

    Latest issue of Army Times. 3 new patterns talked about, a woodland, desert and a "transitional" which I assume is the "multi-cam". Not that I have to wear it anymore, but buuuuhhhh-bye UCP!!

    lol, I can't believe it ! hahaha...in less than 20 years, the US military had changed camouflages, and so uniforms, more often than in his whole military history Razz Each time it's new tests, new productions,...I wonder where is the huge debt of the USA and the economic crisis...apparently, not in the military ! Shocked

    If the gloom and doom of a growing world wide economic melt down and conflict come true, there will be much more bigger priorities than even thinking about collecting anything other than food and shelter! Shocked

    Yes, good news for us because we (Ox2 collectors) no longer will be viewed as modern collectors.

    Maybe here lies the answer affraid
    THE DEFENSE BUDGET
    The $600 billion question to be answered in 2012 is whether lawmakers really will let across-the-board cuts in federal programs go forward because of their failure to approve a $1.2 trillion, 10-year deficit reduction plan in 2011.

    Defense and service officials have used the words “catastrophic,” “devastating” and “dangerous” to describe what will happen if automatic cuts, known as sequestration, take effect Jan. 2, 2013, as required by the Budget Control Act.

    Republicans in Congress are working on plans to exempt defense from its $500 billion to $600 billion share of sequestration by cutting more deeply into other programs, which sounds great for the military but is unlikely to be signed into law. Only a bipartisan plan that includes governmentwide spending cuts without exempting defense is likely to prevent sequestration.

    Don't worry, now I know what it means and I'll probably also use it in future ! You both began a new fashion vocabulary in the collector's community Laughing That's a cool words. You'll laugh, but you used this term yesterday, and I searched on google and found the term as a reference to machine, and also in the geek community, but nothing with US militaria Laughing Now I know ! Wink

    Yes....Ox2 refers to the OEF/OIF Forum. Merc, CamoDeafie, Ben and I use this term as an abbreviation to the full name of the forum.

    I predict that one of the Pencott patterns will win the contract. If not, I think 2 more color variations of Multicam will be adopted.
