A-TACS FG – See It Here First

At 1200 EST today, A-TACS will simultaneously update their website, Facebook fan page and officially release the highly anticipated FG (Forest/Green) pattern.

This might be an overused word, but when I saw these photos I literally said to myself, “Awesome.” When Digital Concealment Systems went about developing a new woodland pattern, they didn’t just adjust the color palette of their existing A-TACS AU (Arid/Urban) but rather developed a completely new pattern from the ground up based on the shapes found in dense biomass environments. Starting with their “pattern within a pattern” concept they added simulated depth to further break up the human silhouette. According to DCS, “the organic pixels in the micro patterns are grouped into larger, more defined “macro” shapes creating larger more defined patterns. The larger organic shapes and strategically placed shadow elements within the macro pattern help to create a unique three-dimensional effect never before seen in a tactical concealment system.

    Looks good guys, I’d say thats a huge step up from your first pattern.

    Looks a little too green to me. Looks like it’ll work GREAT against a mostly leafy vegetation back drop (as in when you are standing, crouching, moving around etc…), however in a deciduous fall environment, looks like it’ll stick out due to the lack of browns and tans used.

    Resembles the Rebel commando outfits from Return of the Jedi. I mean that as a compliment.

    Meh. Hey look, the new airsoftflage.

  5. MoE says:

    Not bad, but isn’t brown a rather predominant color in nature? Even in forest areas? So now we have a very tan-ish and a very green-ish pattern. PenCott green zone seems much more balanced, as far as the colors.

    Hopefully George Lucas has stocked plenty of sedatives, hysteric fits might kill him…

    I still say green tiger stripe was the best, a dirty well-worn OD outfit might as well be in match with this new one here.

  7. Riceball says:

    I agree with what some of the others are saying, a little too tan & green and not enough brown; the relative lack of brown was the first thing that stood out to me in the first picture.

    NOT the first 3d camo. Seen Mossy Oak infinity yet? been using it for about 3 years now…just sayin’.

    You just got shot my a tree!
    bad guys will never see them coming

    It looks a lot like the older versions of DEPSOC as well.

  11. Greg says:

    A little more brown here and there may help it even out the blend in line, But aside from that ATACS really out did its self Good job.

  12. Andrew says:

    It is amazing (to me) how much the straight lines of the loop fields and the binding tape on their sleeves stands out.

  13. Ryann says:

    will work great on mossy and wet vegetation specially on tropical areas

  14. MarkM says:

    Those big patches of hook and loop fabric really DO stick out. When does the vendor finally wake up a supply camo versions for officially adopted uniforms? We CAN get woven patterns in the PALS webbing. No real excuse here other than DOD is allowing it.

    That much straight lined color in an exposed area means the risk is low – so why bother so much with camo at all? The gear covers up most of it, it’s just the arms and legs sticking out from under, now. Exactly why the battleshirts have a solid body and camo sleeves.

    Back to the drawing board and rethink how much we really need an Eisenhower era administrative requirement on our uniforms. It’s a combat uniform, not garrison utilities for lounging at the PX snack bar.

  15. Greg says:

    Lol thats the thing most countries including ours at one point combat uniforms can also double as a garrison, frankly i say do away with formal dresses and just use camo for formal and in formation :).
