Army statement on the Operational Camouflage Uniform
By Senior Army SpokespersonJuly 31, 2014
ARLINGTON, Va. (July 31, 2014) -- The Army has selected a pattern as its base combat uniform camouflage pattern. The Army has confirmed through testing that the pattern would offer exceptional concealment, which directly enhances force protection and survivability for Soldiers.
The Army is naming the pattern the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) to emphasize that the pattern's use extends beyond Afghanistan to all Combatant Commands. The Army's adoption of OCP will be fiscally responsible by transitioning over time and simply replacing current uniforms and equipment as they wear out.
The Army anticipates the Army Combat Uniform with the OCP will be available for purchase by Soldiers at Military Clothing Sales Stores (MCSS) in the summer of 2015.
