MTP – Multi Terrain Pattern
It`s July 2013 and although they have been trialing and using this for a number of years now the British Army have finally released the MTP clothing for public sale. Multi Terrain Pattern or MTP as it`s better know replaces the long standing DPM woodland camouflage and Desert patterns. MTP has been designed to suit all environments and theaters of the battle field, eliminating the need for separate patterns for the woodland, urban and desert areas. The MTP pattern comprises colours from all the previous individual camouflages creating this unique format. Similar patterns such as Multicam from which MTP was derived have been around for a while and have been used by the US Army. Multicam as a pattern is very popular and has been used to produce all manner of military items from boot kits and notepad covers to rucksacks, bergens, aqua packs, bivi bags, bashas and MTP rucksacks. Multicam and MTP compliment each other and fit together well when kit is put together from the two patterns giving the army and each individual soldier plenty of choice in replacing worn out kit and also in supplying any new personal pieces of kit they may require.
