New combat uniform unveiled on Army Day

The Indian Army on Saturday unveiled a new battledress that will provide soldiers better camouflage and more comfort at an impressive parade in Delhi Cantonment to mark the 74th Army Day.

The highlight of the parade was a refreshing blend of the old and the new to demonstrate the army’s evolution over the years.

The elite warriors of the Parachute Regiment took part in the parade sporting the new battle fatigues with a digital camouflage pattern that will gradually replace the existing decades-old combat uniform, even as marching contingents from the Assam Regiment and the Jammu & Kashmir Light Infantry turned heads with the soldiers donning vintage uniforms from the 1960s and 1970s.

Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane inspected the Army Day parade that was attended by Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal Vivek Ram Chaudhari, Navy chief Admiral R Hari Kumar and top officers of the armed forces.
