    SINGAPORE: Singapore's men in green will be seeing a new combat uniform from next year.

    Some 300,000 servicemen will eventually be wearing the new SAF combat uniform with high-tech pixelised patterns on it. The patterns replace the large green patches on the old outfit.

    The new material maintains the camouflage effect even when viewed through night vision devices.

    It is also designed to be used in war zones that extend beyond the jungle.

    Colonel Tan Chor Kiat, Chief of Staff, HQ 9 Division, Infantry, Singapore Armed Forces, said: "When you talk about urban terrain, you are really looking at a very unique characteristic where the opposing forces can co-exist within the same urban terrain in a very volatile system. Consequently, the soldiers are going to get shot at a lot more often, and at a much more shorter distance."

    According to the SAF, the new uniform increases detection time by 30 to 50 percent in the urban environment, making it harder for enemies to find their targets.

    It is also made from better quality fabric which helps dissipate sweat and heat away from the body quicker and comes with ergonomic features such as extra padding and pockets.

    It will be introduced to all servicemen over a three-year period starting from 2009.

    The first to receive the new uniforms will be recruits from the January Basic Military Training intake, as well as active personnel and NSmen in their sixth and seventh In-Camp Training years, while the rest will get theirs in 2010 and 2011.

    NSmen currently in their seventh to ninth years, however, will not receive the new uniform.

    SAF says this phased approach takes into consideration the wear and tear of servicemen's existing uniforms. - CNA/de

    I see future watermelon soldiers running around. 1 hit and they explode in a shower of red

    haha this camo (the green and brownpattern) is not much use in urban conditions in day time. a gray variant would be better for urban use.

    but this one works very well at night in jungle conditions.

    cos there may be some soldiers digitally planted into the battlezone to confuse enemy troopers. those that got hit will be deleted!

    Have you seen digital camouflage in its environment before? It really does work a lot better than the old camouflage patterns. Yeah, it might look like crap but if it works, who the hell cares? Its not like you're going to be parading up and down the fashion run way with it.

    actually i wonder why the larger pockets always nearer the waist. isn't it harder to baby crawl if full? if chest height, the larger pockets full liao, crawl still easier as most times chest slightly raised.

    It says in another section of today's newspaper that the new body armor can withstand 7.62mm GPMG rounds from a distance of 15m.

    Call me skeptical, but I would looooooooooooooooove to see a live demonstration of this.

    It seems to work pretty well in the bushes. I really cannot spot if there are soldiers in the first few pictures below.

    You can see the guy in the old uniform but the guy in the new one is very very hard to spot. Almost invisible already.

    Official MINDEF website.

    Check whether you'll be getting the new pixel uniform and more photos and functions of the new uniform.
