The Army has more than a million pieces of gear in the old, digital camo pattern. They might try dyeing it. | Army Times

As soon as the Army had begun the search for a new camouflage pattern, circa 2013, the service also started thinking about what to do with huge stocks of equipment covered in gray-green pixelation.

Cut to 2018, and the Army has just about a year and a half left of wear for the Universal Camouflage Pattern, which was replaced by the green and brown blotches of the Operational Camouflage Uniform back in 2015. So what to do with all of that UCP gear?

A dye job might be the answer, according to the House Armed Services Committee’s most recent National Defense Authorization Act edit, and the Army is set to wrap up a study of how to do it later this year.
