Army Picks New Camouflage: Scorpion (Update; Rangers Lead The Way)
Update: Military Times provides some amplifying information about the Scorpion W2, including a small swatch of the material. Sources speculate that the name could change in the near future.
Update: The Army announced that as of the 30th birthday of the 75th Ranger Regiment (3 October), the Rangers will wear the new design full time, and do away with the previous UCP pattern altogether. A close contact that I have within the regiment said that the Scorpion W2 pattern is officially authorized, but since none of it is available, the MultiCam (OCP) pattern will be used until such time as the Scorpion becomes available. Any photos, he says, will be taken at such a distance that no one will be able to tell the difference, which shouldn't be much of a problem.
Another example of "Rangers Lead The Way."
