MRAP vehicles[edit]

The Pentagon bought 25,000 MRAP vehicles since 2007 in 25 variants through rapid acquisition with no long-term plans for the platforms. The Army plans to divest 7,456 vehicles and retain 8,585. Of the total number of vehicles the Army is to keep, 5,036 are to be put in storage, 1,073 used for training and the remainder spread across the active force. The Oshkosh M-ATV will be kept the most at 5,681 vehicles, as it is smaller and lighter than other MRAPs for off-road mobility. The other most retained vehicle will be the Navistar MaxxPro Dash with 2,633 vehicles and 301 Maxxpro ambulances. Other MRAPs such as the Cougar, BAE Caiman, and larger MaxxPros will be disposed.[35]

Army Combat Uniform (ACU) Operational Camouflage Pattern Operational Camouflage Pattern 2015 (cropped).jpg The OCP uniform was originally codenamed Scorpion W2 in the early 2000s. In response to soldiers’ complaints about the ineffectiveness of the Universal Camouflage Pattern that had been in service for the past decade, the army conducted a program between uniform manufacturers in 2015 to find a replacement. The OCP pattern was declared the winner and began to be rolled out in June 2015 and became mandatory in September 2019. [48]

The standard garrison service uniform is known as "Army Greens" or "Class-As". The "Army Blue" uniform, is currently the Army's formal dress uniform, but in 2009 it replaced the Army Green and the Army White uniforms (a uniform similar to the Army Green uniform, but worn in tropical postings) and became the new Army Service Uniform, which functions as both a garrison uniform (when worn with a white shirt and necktie) and a dress uniform (when worn with a white shirt and either a necktie for parades or a bow tie for "after six" or "black tie" events). The Patrol Cap is worn with the ACU for garrison duty; and the beret with the Army Service Uniform for non-ceremonial functions. The Army Blue Service Cap, is allowed for wear by any soldier ranked CPL or above at the discretion of the commander.

Body armor in all units is the Improved Outer Tactical Vest, which is now being supplemented with the lightweight Modular Body Armor Vest and Soldier Plate Carrier System. Head protection is provided by the Advanced Combat Helmet and Modular Integrated Communications Helmet, which are being replaced in deployed units by the Enhanced Combat Helmet.

Field equipment[edit]

Modular sleep system[edit]

A Modular Sleep System in use

The Modular Sleep System (MSS) is a sleeping bag kit part of the Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (Gen I to Gen III) used by the United States Army and manufactured by Tennier Industries. It consists of a camouflaged, waterproof, breathable bivy cover, a lightweight patrol sleeping bag, and an intermediate cold-weather sleeping bag (note that the color differs depending on the vintage of the gear). Compression sacks are included to store and carry the system. The MSS is available in a variety of camouflage patterns. The patrol bag provides weather protection from 35–50 °F (2–10 °C). The intermediate bag provides cold weather protection from −5–35 °F (−21–2 °C). Combining the patrol bag and intermediate bags provides extreme cold weather protection in temperatures as low as −30 °F (−34 °C). The bivy cover can be used with each of three MSS configurations (patrol, intermediate, or combined) to provide environmental protection from wind and water. The sleeping bags are made of ripstop nylon fabrics and continuous-filament polyester insulation; the camouflage bivy cover is made with waterproof, breathable, coated or laminated nylon fabric; the compression sacks are made with water-resistant and durable nylon fabrics.[49]

Army Elements Fleece[edit]

Used by Army aviation crews to adapt to varying mission requirements and environmental conditions.

3D printing[edit]

In November 2012, the U.S. Army developed a tactical 3D printing capability to allow it to rapidly manufacture critical components on the battlefield.[50] Additive manufacturing is now a capability at Rock Island Arsenal[51] where parts can now be manufactured outside a factory including:

  • M1A1 Abrams tank turret[51]
  • 40 mm grenade launcher[51]
