    I don't think the AirForce does enough field work to warrant a change (AGAIN) from what they just switched to to MultiCam. Its taken the Army long enough, and they only issue the stuff for deployment, not garrison.

    Well the whole conflict is rather the Armed Forces should have the same set of camoflauge.. but yeah I would support you there.. and plus the Air Force has already invested so much into the ABUs, why change so soon?

    They wouldn't need Multicam as much as the Army does anyway.

    Thats true.. but do think about the AF guys who work aside the Army.. like Combat Controllers and TACPs.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but when it comes to that level I believe units have their own individual SOPs. But, the military has never really had a standard set of uniforms since BDUs. The USMC does MARPAT, the Army does ACUs, the AirForce does ABUs, and the Navy does sling bikinis.

    haha navy, What I was getting at was the fact that some branches of the Military are trying to change the patterns of others. The other day I was reading about how the Marine Corps wants to change the Navy's new camoflauge because it looks to similar to Marpat. I was also reading that there is some law that dictates the military on what camoflauge it should wear.. meaning they should uphold one pattern rather than a different one for each branch.

    Your correct Paul. TACP's and CCT's and PJ's all can and do wear multicam.
