Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane on Wednesday was seen donning the new combat uniform during a recent visit to the Eastern Command area where he reviewed the operational preparedness. Other Army officers were also present with him.
Notably, the Indian Army recently introduced the new Combat Uniform for the first time on the occasion of 74th Army Day.
Indian Army gets new uniform
The new Army Combat Pattern Uniform has been developed with the help of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) after going through options of 15 patterns, eight designs, and four fabrics.
The new uniform has a mix of Olive Green and earthy colours for better camouflage and the fabric is durable, sturdier and lighter than the ones used earlier.
The pattern of the Indian Army’s new uniform is widely used by troops abroad and is engineered to withstand tough conditions like harsh temperatures, explosive bursts, and fluctuating air pressures and is supposed to provide the soldiers more comfort.
