WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Army revealed on Monday a redesigned combat uniform with a digital camouflage pattern that looks strikingly different from soldiers' current battle dress uniforms.
It marks the first major change in the Army uniform since 1981, said Brig. Gen. James R. Moran, who modeled the uniform for reporters at the Pentagon. He said recruits will be issued the redesigned uniform starting October 2005, and the entire Army will be outfitted by December 2007.

You know, I've seen digital camo before, they're selling it as army surplus...
*shrug* It's a better camoflage to the human eye, so, uhh... yep they've been implementing it for a while now. It's just they haven't gotten it in stock. Really, if you look up "army digital camoflage" the first site you'll bring up is actually a surplus store for this, specifically. So go ahead, and get the army's new BDU before they do!

Digital camo? Does that mean microchip technology?
(i.e. the camo changes according to environment??)
