Army selects new camouflage pattern for armed forces

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

A change of uniform could be coming to soldiers in the U.S. armed forces. The new camouflage pattern called the Scorpion W2 could replace UCP.

Some say the pattern looks very similar to MultiCam, which soldiers are already wearing in Afghanistan.

News leader 9 talked with those stationed at Fort Benning about the changes.

"It is a good thing...and it's going to be more uniformed than having two or three uniforms. It will be an easy transition especially us going to Afghanistan and we don't have to change uniforms, so I think it is a great idea," said Kevin Bixon.

"I believe the uniform looks better as a green uniform, going back to the old camo way that it used to be and the ACU pattern that we have today," said Brett Gampa.

Army officials still have not confirmed if the new pattern has been officially decided upon.
