Indian Army will introduce a light and more climate-friendly combat uniform for its personnel on Army Day today. The new Army Combat Pattern Uniform has been developed with the help of NIFT after going through options of 15 patterns, eight designs, and four fabrics. The camouflage uniform will be based on a ‘digital disruptive’ pattern and will be available in 13 sizes.
The new uniform has been designed to serve two purposes–Protection against harsh climatic conditions, and to provide soldiers’ outfits with field camouflage, to increase survivability. The Army’s uniform is made of a combination of cotton and polyester in a ratio of 70:30. The fabric of the Indian Army’s new uniform will be lightweight and will dry quickly, thus will be more comfortable for the troops during the operation. The new uniform will be much more durable as well as comfortable in both summers and winters.
