Canada Adopts CADPAT-MT Camouflage
In addition to adopting a new variant of CADPAT called Multi Terrain, Canada’s Department of National Defence has called upon industry to produce fabric for new uniforms in the pattern. It will replace CADPAT-TW (Temperate Woodland) as the primary camouflage pattern for Canadian forces.
Under development for the past few years, CADPAT-MT has seen a color palette refinement. An early version trialed at Petawawa in 2019 was darker with a brown dominance.
The current tender for fabric calls for an initial order of 390,000 meters followed by an order of 560,000 meters a year later. Total quantities are anticipated at 1.1 million meters.
