Its a beauty, isnt it?
I agree, nice cam, and I hope we never ditch our DPM (although I know our desert cam is being revamped with a 3rd colour for PECOC).
I also hope the French and Irish don't ditch their cams, CCE is fine looking (I've a French Army bivvybag with that on, but think they are changing their patterns for FELIN) and the Irish 'paddy-flage' is similar - good to notice the IDF members wearing it in public in Dublin.
As for countries which don't need to change - Germany and Danmark. Flecktarn is so like digital it may as well be digital, noones going to notice any difference at more than 10m away. It is the forerunner of digital in my mind.
I know that digital is meant to be the future etc, but all troops are going to look very similar in 5-10yrs time with all the green and brown digi patterns you won't be able to tell between them. Naturally distinguishing the troops of one country from another (apart from signature kit like rifles) will get increasingly hard. And 'character' will suffer. Besides, DPM works and looks the business too
