South Korean Army to Get New Uniform, Combat Rations

The South Korean Army plans to develop combat uniforms with new camouflage and a combat meal to the current three types.

The current digitally patterned camouflage pattern, adopted in 200 will be replaced by a new one, to adjust troops to changing warfare environment, Yonhap reported quoting an unnamed military official as saying on Sunday.

The development started as part of Army Chief of Staff Gen. Kim Yong-woo's plan to enhance individual soldiers' combat capabilities, the official said. The new design is aimed at maximizing troops' camouflaging and bolstering the identity of Army forces. 

The designers are also reviewing ways to change the place of military badges and name tags in the uniform.

In addition, the Army is also planning to add an additional type of combat meal to the current three types, the source said.

The new meal will be lighter to carry, quicker to fix and more appetizing to younger-generation soldiers, he said, adding that it will be made available to soldiers beginning in 2021.
