    Are you counting the Class A's as one of the three uniforms? Cause of course you're gonna have a dress uniform, and a work uniform.

    The USMC and other branches all seem to wear the same uniform on operations though. I believe that the Navy and Air Force wear different ones as there is not a widespread distribution of the ABU's and NWU's, but then there is the whole factor of their respective SOF wearing what ever they want. It just seems weird that the Army is operating in ACU's, Multicam, and ACP (I believe that is the name of the ACU pattern with the brown added in), while they are all in the same AO.

    ACU(Army Combat Uniform) is not a camouflage pattern. It is the cut/design of the uniform. UCP (universal Camouflage Pattern) and UCP-Delta(UCP with Cyote Brown added it) are camouflage patterns.

    Dunno, its small, robust and if you have a good loader it does the job. The blank speedloader on the other hand works perfect, so i'm guessing it would do almost the same on live ammo.

    A British journalist has been killed in an explosion in southern Afghanistan, the UK's Ministry of Defence has said. Sunday Mirror defence correspondent Rupert Hamer, 39, was embedded with the US Marine Corps when his vehicle was hit by a bomb near Nawa in Helmand. The father-of-three's Mirror colleague, photographer Philip Coburn, 43, is in a serious but stable condition. A US Marine and an Afghan soldier were also killed in the blast on Saturday. Four US Marines were seriously injured.

    The South African National Defence Force too.

    In most Commonwealth countries (including Britain) the army and air force salute palm-out while the navy salutes palm down.
