KA2 Digital Camouflage Program Update
Amman, June 29, 2005 (Petra)-- His Majesty King Abdullah II, the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces, attended on Wednesday a military exercise that was performed by one of the units of King Abdullah II Armored Group/3.
The King was briefed, in the presence of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on the exercise that was carried out by the unit.
The King is seen in the new KA2 Desert Digital camouflage for the Jordan Army and Air Force. The non-combat Head dress for regular forces is styled on the German WWII Africa Corps M43 cap. The M43 cap finds it's roots in the ski caps used by the mountain troops as well as the Afrika Korps troops. The style of cap is still used by a number of countries and testing in Jordan has shown it is better designed for the desert environment than typical military caps.
Special Forces commanders seen in current U.S. Woodland in the photo will convert shortly to Special Forces Woodland Digital (pictured below right) with colors better suited to the Jordan Desert and Forest environments.
