Here’s a close up of that armour carrier, clearly showing the Hybrid DPM in bottle green, caramel and earth brown over tan:

The DPM colours on the PECOC gear look more effective than I thought they would. I still think that including the green into one or two of the colours would have been more effective because the bottle green is not very effective, a dark colour (where the black usually is) would have been good for contrast. Why did they not issue DPM uniforms with the PECOC colours?
Is the load bearing equipment and body armour being made in MTP also? I must say MTP is greener than I would have expected.
