Here I have listed the various camouflage patterns that are available to airsofters. This list is by no means exhaustive, there will be many that I have missed and I will add to this as time goes by.
British Desert DPM
This is the British issued Desert DPM commonly issued to UK troops deployed in the Middle East and surrounding areas. It doesn’t have much use in the UK, but can be used in certain, dusty, parts of the US and other countries. It is made from quite lightweight material so is comfortable in the heat.
British MTP (Multi Terrain Pattern)
This is the current issue British camouflage pattern. It is called MTP (Multi Terrain Pattern) and is designed to be used as its name suggests, in multiple terrain. It is good for all types of terrain, but, as with anything that is designed to be multi purpose, there are better alternatives designed for specific areas. This pattern is very similar to MultiCam (below) and was probably inspired by the design. Although they look very similar and the two patterns are commonly confused there are some clear differences in the two designs.
This pattern is used by many forces, in particular certain specialist elements of the United States Special Forces Group. Again, as with MTP, this pattern is a multi environment pattern and as such there are better more specific patterns available.
Unites States Army Combat Uniform
This is the United States Army ACU and is commonly issued to the US Army. As you can see it is grey in colour and wouldn’t suit a woodland type playing field, however it has been known to work well in urban environments.
AOR1 (Area of Responsibility 1) is a camouflage pattern primarily used by the the United States Navy SEALs. As you can see it is a sandy looking pattern and would be best suited to warmer climates, or urban environments.
AOR2 (Area of Responsibility 2) is the second camouflage pattern primarily used by the the United States Navy SEALs. As you can see it is a very green/woodland looking pattern and would be best suited to woodland, or urban environments.
