Propper U.S. Army ACU Shirt, A-TACS Green Mil-Spec Uniform
While most ACUs are made from poly/cotton, these Propper ACU uniforms are sewn to military specifications (FQ/PD 04-04A) with 65% polyester / 35% cotton fabric manufactured in a ripstop weave. Hook and loop-faced patches can accommodate rank insignia, unit patch, and name tapes. The mandarin collar can be worn up or down, and the hook and loop sleeve cuff closure provides positive closure. A 3-slot pen pocket on the sleeve bottom and maximized shoulder pockets are designed to fit optimally with the OTV. (Name-tape and patches not included.)
About Advanced Tactical Concealment System, A-TACS
A-TACS® was developed by Digital Concealment Systems, (DCS) to answer the call for better and more effective camouflage system integration for duty personnel in any service branch from military to law enforcement. A-TACS® is designed as a universal pattern for a wide range of operational environments with additional supporting color and design variants to follow.
Many of the modern digital camouflage patterns currently in use by the tactical community have flaws. The square pixels used to create the distortion effect do not replicate the shapes, forms and shadows of the environment they are deployed in-especially when viewed through optics. The ninety-degree angles and limited use of natural colors can in many cases make detection easier.
Additionally, the “visual noise” in these same patterns tends to make them close-up into a solid color, producing a “blobbing” effect when viewed from a distance. A-TACS® addresses and improves these critical issues in three ways.
1. – Replace digital square pixels with small organically shaped pixels - removing all 90 degree angles to create a more fluid, natural appearance.
2.- Use small patterns to create larger more distinct shapes designed to work at a distance. Small shapes create larger shapes and larger shapes are organized into a distinct pattern with no horizontal or vertical orientation. This unique “pattern within a pattern” concept allows A-TACS® to effectively break the human outline at great distances thereby, minimizing the “blobbing” effect of other patterns when viewed from a distance.
3.- More effective use of color-range produces a better concealment system. A-TACS® is created using a far greater range of inter-mingled natural colors than was previously possible. The overall base color for the cast is a neutral tan which is designed for use in open, rocky or arid environments.
