Look What’s Coming in A-TACS FG

Propper has ACUs in the A-TACS FG print on the way for Spring 2012.

Additionally, Beez Combat Systems, Grey Ghost and TAG will be producing armor carriers and pouches.

It’s important to remember that with the release of the A-TACS FG Camo pattern, the original A-TACS Camo pattern is now known as A-TACS AU (Arid/Urban) Camo.

    Any word if these are going to meet the MIL NIR requirement or if they are going to do the original ATACS AU fabric so they meet NIR?

    From the looks of it, if one already owned the ATACS AU they could field improvise to the FG pattern with a krylon can of Green and dark brown and come close to the same outcome. My thoughts are that this pattern will work very well in the appropriate environments.

    It would be great if there were a more comprehensive non-manufacturer sponsored systematic side-by-side camo visual test at different distances using Crye, Pencott, A-TACS, MARPAT, Cadpat, even say Swedish M90 etc. in multiple backgrounds (trees, hills, rocks, scrub etc.). I know there are some tests out there, but man there are so many new patterns and shades. It would be nice to see a more complete spectrum comparison.

    Soooo we’re fighting the Empire at some point? Where’s my poncho, and light saber?

    • PLiner says:

      Funny, I thought this pattern looked a lot like the same pattern on the ponchos too. An old piece of canvas cut into a poncho with some spray paint matching the environment actually can work very well at breaking up the human form when done properly.

    It’s not going to be popular if it’s not issue. Not to push a VS. argument, look at the distribution and breadth of Multicam before it was approved for OCONUS use. Not much available, and certainly high end. Since then, you could get either the milspec or civilian non FR items in a much wider variety of uniforms, from GI ACU’s and the latest generation ECWCS, to retro BDU’s. Field gear now abounds. Given some patience and time, a MC softshell will drop below $45 used. I already have an M65 in ripstop for hunting.

    Of course, marketing alternate camo patterns that work and that aren’t issue has that same track record. Propper obviously has some production time in their schedule, and the pattern is worth risking the effort to market. The infrastructure is geared up to make stuff in quantity after supplying things over the last decade, and it won’t spin down and lay off workers if it doesn’t need to. Nonetheless, five years from now with more soldiers in Korea than SWAsia, it’s going to be dramatically quieter.
