    Both use Steyrs. The alpine-type Austrians wear solid colour unifroms, desert Austrians wear Auscam.

    We should just go with multicam and OD green gear and be done with it. Give us the option to wear UCP in garrison until the wear out date. And get rid of the black beret. Problem solved.

    Half the Ranger regiment is still in therapy after they took their black berets from them, and now you want to remove them altogether? You, sir, have no heart.

    LOL the Rangers can keep'em!. Just about every soldier I know hates the beret and wears the patrol cap at every opportunity. The only weather that the beret is good for is on cold overcast dry days. It keeps the top of my head and the top half of my right ear nice and toasty.

    Probably after they spend half a gazillion of your tax dollars on it. And that's just for the trails

    R&D is far more profitable than actual production of military goods. The guys who sell fighter jets to the Air Force and Navy figured that one out a long time ago.


    My pet peeve is that, back in the day, a squared away troop usually looked pretty damn sharp in his BDUs. You could usually get a darn good shave on the pleats and the BDUs would have enough starch in them to give them a higher ballistic value than a WWII steel pot. Oh, and don't forget those two cool little tabs on each side that did a great job of pulling the bagginess out of it. Now it seems okay for everybody, privates to generals, to look like they've been sleeping in their cool new digiform for most of the week. Very unprofessional.

    I don't know why this is. Perhaps the standards are more lax in today's military (which I doubt), or, more likely, the new material simply can't hold a press when the humidity is over 3% (ie: anywhere outside of Death Valley). The new stuff doesn't seem to be nearly as durable as good old BDUs either. But of course the DoD will buy twice as many of anything that only lasts half as long.

    My other pet peeve is senior officers who wear utilities in situations were they may not be the most appropriate. Rule of thumb, if a civilian executive can wear a suit and tie to his office job every day, so can you. But I'll let this peeve rest here.

    Carry on.
