WW2 unis were to the point
Perhaps if you posted images of uniforms from various war eras and compared/contrasted same, it would lend more credence to the thread.
I remember when they first brought Marpat on board.
They showed the contrast in how well a job it did of camouflage from old uniforms. The stuff just vanishes. And it is reversible and both types work great.
The old british army uniform looked great. Made an easy target to shoot at too.
the old US unis in the BigOne looked cool
tiger stripe, stop rip cotton , the best.
if uniforms still won wars ie British Redcoacts - we woukl sttill be speaking English...............
Because you know, functionality, should be secondary to how the damn uniform looks.
And the nazi's would have their jackboots on your neck. Are you trolling? I'm starting to think the drum circle and a bong is better place for you than the military thread. Hell, I don't even post in the miliitary thread. WTF?
Uniforms, or more specifically, fatigues, are just another tool of war. They aren't supposed to look pretty, their original purpose was to conceal. Now that technology has advanced, and the enemy has a broad range of optical magnification lenses/equipment, the original purpose of camouflage is redundant, so a soldier can no longer rely on his or her camouflaged fatigues to conceal them from the enemy.
Its modern purpose is actually intimidation, and the current standard-issue US military fatigues do that perfectly. It makes them stand-out as professional soldiers. What would you have them do, stroll around Kandahar dressed as Gen. Custer, perhaps?
No, ginscpy, like the Taliban, you've wandered into a situation totally unprepared. You've exposed yourself to a superior force. You're dead.
In future, I advise that you don't embark on a course of structured antagonism halfway through a bottle of Jack Daniels. And for the love of God, go back to school. Your inability to structure a sentence and spell is, quite frankly, a national embarrassment to Great Britain.
The WWII German Army had the coolest looking uniforms; especially the Waffen SS
