In Urban Camouflage?
This story has been stuck in my head for some time now and I just can’t figure out the logic behind it. Why on earth is our Defence Department creating camouflage designs based on the “unique requirements” of the urban settings of Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto?
As Eric Graves, the editor of Soldier Systems Daily, a U.S. website that reports on the uniform and equipment industry, says: “It makes zero sense for the Canadian military to produce an urban pattern based on their own cities unless they plan on fighting there.”
Maybe I’m missing something here… Perhaps our Conservative friends can illuminate what’s behind the new “Canadian Urban Environment Pattern” for the military because the point is completely lost on me.
