Air Chief Marshal Vivek Ram Chaudhari gave the first look at what is called a “digitally camouflaged” uniform for the ground staff of the air force. Garud Special Forces of the IAF wear camouflage uniforms like the army.
Indian Air Force New Combat Uniform
The Air Force’s new combat uniform is thought to have taken some ideas from the Army’s new digital camouflaged combat uniform, which came out earlier this year.
Most armies around the world have switched to digital camouflage patterns that are hard to spot. Now the designs on the battle fatigues are made up of squares instead of the organic patterns that were used before. The digital pattern works well on all kinds of terrain, making it easier for people to move around in places like deserts, forests, mountains, and cities without being seen.
The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) made the new combat uniform for the Indian Army. It was shown off on Army Day in January of this year. The IAF’s new uniforms may take some ideas from the design, but they will be made to fit the conditions in which IAF ground staff work.
An IAF officer told newsonair.com, “The new IAF uniform will have different colours and shades that are better for the air force’s work environment.”
In addition to the new pattern, the IAF uniform will be made of a different (lighter and more breathable) fabric and have a different design. This will make the staff more comfortable and help them do their jobs better. The ergonomic fitting is a feature that helps both men and women on ground duty do their jobs as well as they can.
Since the new uniforms can be worn on any terrain and in any season, manufacturers can save money by making a lot of them at once.
The IAF is the world’s fourth largest active Air Force. It was founded on this day in 1932 as a support force for the UK Royal Air Force. After India got its independence, the air force was renamed the Bharatiya Vayu Sena, which means “Indian Air Force.”
The new combat uniform is lighter, stronger, and more versatile. Here’s everything you need to know about its design and how it works.
