The uniform of the British Army is to be changed for the first time in almost 40 years.
The new Multi-Terrain Pattern (MTP) will replace the traditional four colour woodland uniform known as No.8: Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM).
Forces in Afghanistan will start to get the new uniforms in March next year, with the whole army upgraded by 2011.
MTP is designed for a wide range of environments, including the volatile "green zone" of Helmand province.
British troops in Afghanistan currently use a mix of desert camouflage and temperate DPM, depending on which area they are operating in.
There are three main types of terrain in Helmand - desert, the agricultural "green zone" either side of the Helmand river, and residential areas with dusty buildings and mud huts.
One soldier said that the mix-and-match was far from ideal and made units stand out, especially in the "green zone".
