What is Multicam?
Multicam is not only another camouflage pattern among hundreds of military patterns but also the most important one in the entire world.
Why is that? Because since the United States Army adopted it. Other armies around the world have copied it, using variations of the same color chart and patterns.
However it wasn’t the first of its kind.
The US army was been experimenting with other patterns for camouflage before 2002 when the Multicam was unveiled for the first time.
During the Second World War, jungle camouflage uniforms were used by the British and American forces. Nevertheless, they realized that flat green uniforms worked just as good as jungle style camouflage when soldiers were moving.
At the beginning of the twenty first century the US army was using the so called 3 colors desert and woodland patterns which Multicam tried to replace in 2002. But then a new type of camouflage gain terrain in 2004 when the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) was imposed by law to the majority of the military units.
It wasn’t until 2010 when Multicam was adopted as the new model for the US army.
Nowadays Multicam is available also for individuals.
The U.S. Army stopped using the UCP in September 2019.
