South Korea’s Revitalizing Reforms Uniform

Monday, June 25th, 2018

This is a rare “camouflage” pattern indeed. Used exclusively by South Korea’s Capital Garrison Command (former name of the Capital Defense Command), it seems to have no practical purpose than to serve as a uniform.

Called the Yu-Shin bok (Revitalizing Reforms Uniform), it was worn up until 1981. The pattern appears to incorporate turtle shells which is significant considering the Geobukseon or Turtle Ships are recognized to be the first armored ships and were used by the Koreans to thwart Japanese attempts to conquer Korea in the late 16th century.

AT Armor Introduces Retro Carbine Paint Kit

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

Texas-based tactical gear company AT Armor releases historically accurate Rhodesian Army camo paint kit.
Fort Worth, Texas – June 19, 2018

AT Armor, a growing retailer/manufacturer of personal ballistic armor and tactical gear, successfully introduced its first historically accurate camo paint kit in an early June soft launch.  As a company equally dedicated to the preservation of freedom and the study of history, this camo paint kit made of modern materials was intended to match those common colors found during the bush wars that plagued the African Continent in the last century.

“We spent an exhaustive amount of time researching and matching the colors to those found during the bush wars” says Mike Martin, owner and CEO of AT Armor. “This is not a big box store hit and miss paint match – we were demanding about having these colors match up perfectly.”

AT Armor’s Rhodesian Army Camo paint kit is an oil-based kit consisting of three parts:

One 2 oz. bottle of Rhodesian Dark Green paint
One 2 oz. bottle of Rhodesian Light Green (aka “baby poop”)
One 1 oz. bottle of flat coat paint

Full instructions are included as well as three squeeze caps for project use. More introverted personalities may choose to use the flat coat paint to knock down the natural shine of the oil base. This kit contains enough paint for one carbine-sized project plus a little leftover for touch ups (or an additional small item such as a magazine or tactical toothpaste tube).

AT Armor disagrees with any subjugation or separation of free people based on color, creed, or religious belief.  Unfortunately some scholars gravitate toward the historical interest of the bush wars in order to leverage it to further their cause of separatism; this is not our world view. We present this paint kit in iconic RA colors simply as a tribute to all anti-terror and anti-communist forces that fought the good fight.

French Army Introduces New Combat Uniform 

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

The French Army recently revealed the Tenue Combat F3, a new FR combat uniform in Central European Camouflage. By 2019, all French Soldiers deployed overseas will be outfitted with this new FR uniform which is available in two weights. The summer version is an aramid and viscose FR mixture, which offers improved air permeability.

There are no seams along the tops of the shoulders.

They’ve incorporated zipper pulls and two-way zippers. Also, you can see close-ups of the fabric’s herringbone weave which they call a chevron ripstop.

The F3 uniform also incorporates slotted buttons.

Interestingly enough, I saw an example of a new French, 7-color camouflage pattern last year in Canada which looks to be influenced by MultiCam. They refer to it as Hot Climate Camouflage, which is not to be confused with the Tan-based Desert pattern. The garment seen here was created for use by elements of the French Special Operations Command and has a different cut and fabric than the F3 uniform.

If you’ve ever been around military vehicles on the summer, you know how hot their exterior surfaces can get. Armored vehicles are even worse.

Rheinmetall Defence’s Solar Sigma Shield is a blanket-like appliqué. It is designed to not only reduce the effects of solar heat in vehicles, but also provide multispectral camouflage. It is also fire resistant and no-slip/no-skid, another major plus for operating on armor vehicles.

Testing by Defence Research and Development Canada Show up to a 30% lower temperature when using Solarshield.

In this case, it is mounted to a Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle from Textron Systems, currently in service with the Canadian Army.
