“Indian Army’s Parachute Regiment commandos marching during the Army Day Parade in the new digital combat uniform of the Indian Army. This is the first time that the uniform has been unveiled in public,” captioned ANI.
The new uniform, which replaces the force’s decades-old combat design, now has a digital camouflage pattern, similar to the one used by the British Army.
The new uniform is likely to be introduced in the Indian Army by August this year.
The decision to bring out the new combat dress for the force was taken at the recently held Army Commanders’ Conference, the officials said earlier
The new camouflage uniform is totally different from the existing dress and the shirts would not be required to be tucked in by troops. It is designed with the objective of keeping the soldiers warm and comfortable in harsh climatic conditions as well as the clear camouflage pattern will help them with survival techniques.
The new uniform has been created in association with the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT).
