U.S. Army Selects New Pattern

Scorpion OCP ACUMSG Benjamin Owen wearing
the OCP (Scorpion W2) ACU
On July 31, 2014 the Army officially announced that a new camouflage pattern, known internally as Scorpion W2, will be named the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP). Not only does this new pattern replace MultiCam, which acted as the OCP until 2015, but also replaces Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) as the official ACU pattern.
The original Scorpion pattern was developed by Crye Precision as part of the Objective Force Warrior program more than a decade ago. The Scorpion W2 variant was modified from the initial pattern by Army Natick Labs. Similar in design to MultiCam, the chosen pattern is scheduled to be used in the field by the summer of 2015.
After a four-year intensive camouflage research and testing process, this selection couldn't have been more anticipated. For more than a decade, the Army has relied on the widely unpopular UCP as the official standard-issue pattern.
"The Army has confirmed through testing that the (Scorpion W2) pattern would offer exceptional concealment, which directly enhances force protection and survivability for Soldiers," the an anonymous Army senior spokesperson said.
Speculation about the selection began back in May when Military.com broke the news that Sgt. Major of the Army Raymond Chandler III had been briefing senior sergeants major on the selection. On July 23, 2014 Gen. Dennis L. Via, the head of Army Material Command, unofficially confirmed the Army has adopted the W2 variant of the Scorpion camouflage.

Operational Camouflage Pattern

The Army has decided to call the new pattern Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP), a name sure to spark confusion considering up to this announcement, MultiCam was known as the OCP.
"The Army is naming the pattern the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) to emphasize that the pattern's use extends beyond Afghanistan to all Combatant Commands," says an anonymous senior spokesperson for the Army in a statement regarding the new pattern on the Army's website.
"The Army is naming the pattern the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) to emphasize that the pattern's use extends beyond Afghanistan to all Combatant Commands." - Senior Army Spokesperson, U.S. Army

What We Know

OCP (Scorpion W2) ACU was first available for soldiers to purchase on the July 1, 2015. The new ACU will be worn in garrison, training and home station. AAFES saw huge sales that day, selling 62,000 units of new items including boots, socks, T-shirts, coats and trousers.
ACU coats and pants in OCP are currently selling for around $96, which is $12 more than the old uniforms at $84. Other uniform components, such as boots, shirts, socks and caps did not see a significant price change.
"We've got to have the best system possible to make sure our Soldiers are protected as they deploy around the world," said Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno in a virtual town meeting on January 6, 2015. "The ACU doesn't do very well in camouflaging us and protecting us in multiple environments, and the MultiCam that we use in Afghanistan does a much better job. For me, it's about protecting our Soldiers."

It will be mandatory for other active duty Soldiers to purchase uniforms with their annual clothing allowance. By the beginning of the fiscal year 2016, new accessions will have the OCP ACU in their clothing bags.
On October 3, the 75th Ranger Regiment debuted the new OCP ACU during its 30th anniversary ceremony. This makes it the first unit to wear the new uniform. These uniforms were procured with private funds by unit leaders and not with government funds.
According to MIL-DTL-44436B, the specifications used by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for industry guidance, there are seven colors that make up the official OCP pattern; cream 524, tan 535, pale green 526, olive 527, dark green 528, brown 529 and dark brown 530.
The cloth will be dyed to a base shade of cream 524 and the remaining six colors will be overprinted by rollers or screens. Previously OCP has been referred to as Class 9 & 10 in previous versions of the MIL-DTL-44436B, but the new OCP is being called OCP Class 14.Currently, OCP is being printed on only nylon / cotton fabric.
When asked whether the new OCP ACU will be available for commercial use, Army Spokesperson William Layer said, "This issue is still under internal Army discussion."
So far, there have been no plans outlined to make OCP ACUs available commercially. It's possible that OCP won't be available for commercial sale, unlike previous Army camouflage patterns.

Release Date

OCP (Scorpion W2) Acus first hit military clothing stores on July 1, 2015. Female versions of the new uniform won't be available until September 2015. By summer 2016, OCP ACUs and equipment will be available for U.S. Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve and Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps. The Army expects the transition period to the new uniform to extend until October 1, 2019. During this time Soldiers are authorized to mix and match t-shirts, belts and boots.
"I have asked noncommissioned officers to ensure their Soldiers understand that during this transition period, several uniforms and variations will be authorized in our formations," Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey said. "Presenting a professional appearance is very important to Soldiers. But, we will not inconvenience or burden our troops. We will still be the most lethal fighting force the world has ever known even if our belts don't match for the next few years."
"If you're deploying to Afghanistan or Iraq and some other places, you're [going to be] issued that uniform as you're getting ready to deploy," Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno during a virtual town hall with troops at Fort Hood, Texas on April 2, 2015.
Some troops are already wearing the new uniforms. Photos were taken in March 2015 of Soldiers wearing OCP while training Iraqi troops at Camp Taji, Iraq. Troops in Europe participating in the Operation Atlantic Resolve will also be issued OCP.

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) converted its contracts for the ACU from UCP to OCP beginning in November 2014. In conjunction, the DLA converted "bag items" including hot weather, temperate weather and hot weather FR issue boots to coyote brown.
The first deliveries were due to the DLA by May 1, 2015. On July 1, AAFES MCS will begin to sell OCP ACUs. Authorized coyote brown boots will be allowed for wear only with the OCP ACU. Desert tan boots can be worn with both the UCP ACU and OCP ACU but have a wear-out date of October 1, 2018.
The implementation of these new uniforms have been organized into four tiers, with tier one being the most important priority.
Tier One: Everything that goes into the clothing bag (coats, pants, boots, gloves etc.) Expected to be available in military clothing stores by July 2015
Tier Two: All combat clothing items purchased through Rapid Fielding Initiative (RFI). Examples include helmets, clothing items and hydration systems. Expected availability unknown.
Tier Three and Four: Less essential items like sleeping bags. Expected availability unknown.

Wear-out Dates

With OCP ACUs already being worn overseas, everyone's anxious to get an actual transition timeline. On June 2, the Army released the dates:
  • UCP ACU wear-out date: September 30, 2019
  • OCP ACU mandatory possession date: October 1, 2019
  • OEF-CP wear-out date: September 30, 2019

The New Army Combat Uniform

A new camouflage pattern isn't the only uniform update the Army is making. Many aspects of the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) are changing as well. From new pockets to the removal of hook-and-loop (Velcro) closures, the ACU is getting a complete makeover.
"I'm very excited about the replacement for the ACU," SMA Chandler said in a virtual town meeting on January 9, 2015. "It's a much better uniform. It provides much better protection for you. We put a lot of thought into the design. I think you'll find it's a much better quality uniform than what you have today."
From new pockets to the removal of hook-and-loop (Velcro) closures, the ACU is getting a complete makeover. These changes were implemented with the release of the new OCP uniforms.
"The Army is making several design changes to the ACU in response to soldier inputs to make their uniform better and more functional," said Army Spokesperson William Layer.

Changes Approved by Army Uniform Board

Scorpion OCP ACU
1. The upper-sleeve pocket will feature a zipper closure instead of a Velcro closure for easier access. These new pockets will look similar to those found on combat shirts.
2. The upper-sleeve pocket will also now be at least 1 inch longer. Feedback on post-combat surveys showed that soldiers require roomier pockets and more room for patches.
3. The new ACUs will no longer offer internal elbow pads and Velcro elbow patches. Both those characteristics were found useless in the field and deemed a waste of money. However, one feature that will stay the same is the doubled fabric for extra reinforcement on the elbow area.
4. Say goodbye to the cord-and-barrel lock on the cargo pocket. It will no longer exist on the new ACUs.
5. ACUs will no longer feature knee pads or patches. There will still be reinforced fabric in the knee area.
6. The lower-leg pocket has previously used a Velcro closure. From now on, it will feature a one-button closure instead.
7. The mandarin collar is no more. Instead, you'll see a traditional fold-down design.
8. Only two pen pockets instead of the usual three.
9. After complaint that the drawstrings on the uniform pants' waistband looks unprofessional, it was proposed they be removed from new ACU pants.

Changes That Didn't Make the Cut

10. The Infrared (IR) Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) tag will be still be on the right sleeve but would have been removed from the left sleeve.
11. It was under discussion that lower-leg pockets will be removed completely.
Soldiers will get new boots to accompany the OCP ACU as well. Darker coyote brown boots will replace desert tan boots as the official standard-issue. Major military boot suppliers have already started directing the production of new boots that will comply. It's also expected that gloves will be in this same colorway. Not only will the darker colorway provide better concealment in a wide variety of environments, but it will also hide dirt and wear better than the current desert tan boots.
T-shirts will be also be slightly darker in a tan 499 color. As for all binding components of the uniform, such as loop and hook, thread, zippers, etc., these will also be in tan 499. This color is currently used for MultiCam uniforms.

The Army also updated the Army combat shirt. The new version, known as Type II, boasts more camouflage coverage on the sides and chest. Currently it's still made in OEF-CP. No word on when the Type II combat shirt will transition to OCP.

OCP Name Clarified

When Army officials announced that a new camouflage pattern had been selected and it was to be called Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP), many were left baffled. The confusion stems from the fact that until this announcement, MultiCam was known as OCP.
In 2009, Congress ruled that the Department of Defense take immediate action to address Soldiers' concealment concerns regarding UCP. As a result, MultiCam was adopted as the Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage pattern, also referred to as OEF-OCP or just simply OCP. This was later shortened to Operational Camouflage Pattern, also referred to by the acronym OCP.
However, from now on the Army's new camouflage selection, Scorpion W2, is the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP). Is your head spinning yet? In simple terms, MultiCam used to be the OCP, but now it's not. Scorpion W2 officially claims the title. In an attempt to avoid confusion, the Army has gone back to referring to MultiCam as OEF-CP.

Government Vs. Crye

MultiCam consistently tests better than other camouflage patterns on the market and has been a favorite of military professionals for years now. So why not select MultiCam as the official Army pattern? All signs point to financial reasons. In a statement to Military.com, Caleb Crye, owner of Crye Precision, says he believes the Army was hesitant to pay the "printing fees" associated with the pattern. Crye also says that Army officials tried to buy the rights to MultiCam but rejected Crye's figure of $25 million.
Allegedly, Crye Precision took the position that it owns the patent to OCP (Scorpion W2); the pattern was originally developed by the company in 2002 as part of the Army initiative known as Objective Force Warrior. The original Scorpion patent issued in 2004 indicates that the patent was issued to Caleb Crye.
However, in a statement to Soldier Systems Daily, William Layer of the Army Office of the Chief of Public Affairs claims, "The Army possesses appropriate rights to use the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) on its uniforms and equipment."
On July 7, 2015, The U.S. Patent and Trade Office issued a Utility patent for OCP entitled "Camouflage for Garment Assembly" to the Secretary of the Army representing the United States of America.
This right only extends to the Army, not to the privately owned mills that print the Army's uniforms. When MultiCam was recommissioned for use by the Army in 2010, 11 printers were granted limited-use licenses from Crye to print the pattern. While the stipulations of these licenses are confidential, it's suspected that these contracts require that the printer does not print patterns that are visually similar to MultiCam. If this is the case, it would legally bind printers from printing the almost identical OCP. There is speculation that printing mills might be paying a royalty fee to Crye for printing OCP under government-awarded contracts in order to appease the company and avoid any legal trouble.
If this is true, these under-the-table royalty fees would only offer a solution regarding fabric printed under a government contract for official field wear. If the government were to issue a commercial license for OCP, it's possible this solution would not stand, and Crye could potentially take legal action. While a small royalty fee could appease Crye financially regarding fabric under contract, they would stand to lose a lot more if OCP were to become available commercially.
If the pattern were commercially available, it would become a major competitor to Crye's popular MultiCam pattern. Because the two patterns are so similar, it doesn't seem likely that both patterns would be successful on the commercial market. MultiCam is already easily recognizable and well-received in the market place. It makes sense to assume the brand wouldn't want any competition for the pattern.
Despite that amendment, evidence suggests the Army never possessed the rights to use or alter the pattern. Soldier Systems posted the original proposal from Crye to Natick, the military research complex responsible for research and development of combat effectiveness, for work on the Scorpion project as a part of the Objective Force Warrior Program. In the proposal, Crye mentions multiple projects (including camouflage technologies) the brand had already been working on. While the language allows those technologies to be used as a part of the program, Crye makes it very clear that it would still possess full ownership of the aforementioned technologies.
When contacted, Crye Precision refused to comment regarding the Scorpion pattern.

Commercial Availability

A commercial availability date for OCP (Scorpion W2) ACU is currently unknown. The government filed for a patent application in late 2014 and was granted a utility patent on July 7, 2015. Despite this, there's still no word on whether commercial licenses will be granted. ACU manufacturers such as Atlanco and Propper could have their hands tied with respect to a commercially available OCP ACU until licensing issues are resolved.

Other Branches to Adopt Scorpion W2?

By 2018, congressional language demands all military services should be wearing the same uniforms. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 2014 called for an end to service-specific camouflage patterns. The decision was sparked by congressional committee members' concerns that patterns weren't chosen with concealment in mind, but instead from a branding perspective.
The Army was set to declare a camouflage pattern in 2013, but held off after this development. The recent selection of a new OCP indicates the pattern will most likely be adopted by other services as well.

Air Force Adopting OCP

Air Force spokesperson Maj. Matt Hasson revealed to Air Force Times on June 3 that deployed airmen will be outfitted in the same new camouflage pattern that the Army selects. Now that OCP (Scorpion W2) has been selected, you'll be seeing certain airmen in it by next year.
In 2011, the Air Force replaced the airman battle uniform (ABU) with the OEF OCP (MultiCam) ABU for airmen deployed in Afghanistan. Those currently wearing OEF OCP will now be wearing OCP.
The Air Force Strike Command (AFGSC) security forces will also be gearing up in OCP—first the OEF OCP then OCP when it's available—at three AFGSC bases: Minot AFB, North Dakota; Malmstrom AFB, Montana; and F.E. Warren AFB, Wyoming. Additionally, those in the 620th Ground Combat Training Squadron at Camp Guernsey, Wyoming, will soon be wearing OCP.
The AFGSC is responsible for conducting strategic nuclear deterrence. Until now its security forces have been outfitted in the digital Tiger Stripe ABU. The Air Force cites concealment issues as the reason for the switch-over.
"If you get in a firefight in the field and you're laying down fire, who are you going to see first? Obviously that guy [in ABUs,]" said Chief Master Sgt. Scott Daigneault, senior enlisted manager for the Force Improvement Program at AFGSC to Soldier Systems Daily. "The difference is almost night and day. Your eyes skim right over the guy in [MultiCam] OCP and zone in on the guy in ABUs. He just doesn't fit in in that [missile field] environment."
In February 2015, security forces Airmen began to gear up MultiCam uniforms and cold-weather gear. The uniforms, which have never been worn by missile field defenders before, got a positive reception.
"I think the new uniforms are really cool," said Airman Dean Fedrizzi, 790th Missile Security Forces Squadron Security Support Team to the AFGSC, "I wasn't excited at first, but now that I see them, I'm really psyched to get them."
While AFGSC Airmen are currently being outfitted in MultiCam, they also plan to update to OCP. After OCP hits military clothing stores in May, it will eventually update to OCP along with the Army. As for boots, the Air Force has made no move to transition from sage to coyote brown.
"We intend to transition with the OCP (Scorpion W2) as it becomes available. However, we will not conduct a full re-issue; we will replace items through attrition," said AFGSC spokesperson 1st Lt. Christopher Mesnard.
Does the AFGSC adoption of OCP indicate a complete adoption of the the pattern by the Air Force? Not exactly. This announcement will not affect uniforms worn in home station or the current ABU design. Most airmen will still be wearing the service-specific digital Tiger Stripe pattern.
"There is no plan to change that currently," said Air Force spokesperson Rose Richeson to Military.com

OCP Swatches

Strikingly similar to MultiCam, OCP (Scorpion W2) is made of beige, brown and green components but lacks the vertical elements found in MultiCam. Currently, there are only a few images of Scorpion OCP available to the public.

However, there are multiple images of the original Scorpion pattern developed as a part of the Objective Force Warrior program. How does Scorpion compare to current ACU patterns UCP and MultiCam? Take a look.

MultiCam
At a glance, MultiCam and Scorpion almost look like the same pattern. That's because both MultiCam and Scorpion OCP were developed from this original Scorpion pattern. So what sets the two apart? If you look closely, you'll notice MultiCam features additional beige and brown slugs as well as vertical elements meant to resemble grass and branches. In addition, MultiCam is a somewhat darker and sharper version of Scorpion.

Scorpion History

Scorpion is not a new pattern. In fact, it's been around for more than a decade. Known as the predecessor to MultiCam, the pattern was developed in 2002 by Crye Precision as a part of the advanced technology demonstration project called Objective Force Warrior, later renamed Future Force Warrior.
Made up of green, brown and tan elements, Scorpion looks very similar to MultiCam. Why? Because it is. Crye created Scorpion under a military contract, potentially forfeiting all intellectual rights to the pattern. In order to capitalize on the hard work put into developing Scorpion, Crye made small adjustments to the pattern for trademark purposes to create MultiCam.
"Whatever we do, we're going to do in a fiscally responsible manner," says Col. Robert F. Mortlock, project manager for Soldier Protection and Individual Equipment, Program Executive Office Soldier - U.S. Army Website
The variant chosen as the new OCP is known as Scorpion W2. Like MultiCam, it was developed and modified in 2009 from the original Scorpion pattern. The pattern still needs to be updated with IR technologies before it can be used for combat uniforms.
