Army to get new uniforms

The British Army is to adopt a new uniform style using MTP Multi Terrain Pattern which is designed to be as effective in temperate areas as well as desert zones. It is hoped the uniforms will be effective in Afghanistan where troops can find themselves in totally different kinds of terrain within minutes. The camouflage design was originally developed by MultiCam for the US military though they decided not to adopt it in the end, the final MTP style was developed in conjunction with the MOD and incorporates some elements of the old camouflage. It will be rolled out to units from 2010 to 2016. Of course it was made in... China.
