75th Ranger Regiment in OCP Camouflage at 30th Anniversary Ceremony

There are many great photos floating about in addition to the one you see below showing the 75th Ranger Regiment commemorating their 30th Anniversary in OCP ACU Uniforms. It has been announced that they will be the first to wear the new Operation Camouflage Pattern ACU. As you can see below this is the MultiCam pattern, which was originally utilized as OCP or Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern. As we now know the Army has adopted OCP (Operational Camouflage Pattern), which is also known behind closed doors as Scorpion W2. It will be interesting to see how this transition takes place when soldiers take off their OCP ACU and don the new OCP uniforms. If you are bit confused as we certainly still are, you can see a comprehensive explanation over at Soldier Systems

We can just imagine the conundrum when someone orders an OCP uniform and the wrong OCP Uniform shows up in the mail much to their chagrin. Perhaps it will go unnoticed given the similarities or a blob comparison will start taking place to ensure the right camouflage is being worn. We know these things work their way out one way or another even if some heads are scratched along the way.
