http://www.armoryblog.com/gear/afghan-army-adopts-camo/The Afghan National Army has adopted a new camouflage combat uniform recently, called “Afghan Forest”. Allegedly President Karzai requested the new Afghan uniform to look similar to the US ACU, the new Afghan uniform has a normal shirt-style collar however. The new uniform features a different coloration of the pec4ce Forest camo pattern from HyperStealth Biotechnology Corporation out of Canada. So why not choose a desert colored camo which seems more logical for the Afghan terrain? Well Afghan National Army wanted a color that was not “desert” so that their soldiers were easier to distinguish from the various foreign troops operating currently in Afghanistan.
