Uniform

Recommended Posts

I was just about to post about this, so I'll just hitch a ride. Forgive me, FNG here. I have my MARPAT for CoST. But I also have a set of green Russian Gorka 3 (for wet or cold) as well as my old OD Green BDU's. Im also curious how specific the shade of green has to actually be? Is it 'ranger' green only or is green green? Can I wear my Gorka in the AMS? Thanks

This is posted under the topic:"AMS Rules and Regulations." They seem pretty specific on what is or is not allowed for each faction.

 

1- If it looks like Ranger Green then you should be ok. Just remember it's AMS's and Game Control's perspective on it if they look the same, not you and me.

 

2- Russian camo is NOT on the allowed list for COST. Unfortunately OD green is not as well. OD Green is allowed for the PSA faction, but that faction is not being used for IC3.

 

Usually some exceptions are made for specifically outer rainwear or cold weather outer layers only. They either must be the faction specific allowed camo or it can be a solid color denoting the faction: ex. Solid Green for COST, Tan for UFS, Black or grey for Sierra Dynamics.

Ok, thanks alot. I promise I read the rules, , so I was just curious how strict the 'green' allowances were...

 

1) Since Magpul came out, the color OD Green is drastically different than the WWII OliveDrab I grew up with. Now what about my green BDU's...? Back in the old days we called them OD Green, but Ive not seen a 'Ranger' green BDU...? Do I need a Pantone color chart or should I be GTG? :)

 

2) Forgive me, I assumed my Gorka would fall under 'BDU type' uniform. And since its all green, I assumed it would fall under the 'green' category. I thought all I had to worry about was the shade of green... :( ... Please dont crush my hopes of looking like a Russian 'tourist', lol.

 

Thank you again!

No problem bro! I am never one to crush dreams, but a guy to pass along proper information to a fellow player. And besides we never want to cost our faction point deductions for improper attire.

 

You bring up a valid point about solid green and the different interpretations of what a tone or hue of green properly denotes the title it's given. Because this is subject to interpretation, I will wait for and AMS staff number to clarify that part for you.

Thank you again sir! Im sure Ill be ok :)..I hope. I guess my motivating factor is I have these 3 uniforms and myself and my wife to outfit. She would love the idea of going out shopping!! Im still scrounging for gear, so one less uniform saves me some trouble. But yes sir, not at the expense of the team.

When applying for Ironhorse, it says od green. But then the new Ironclad uniform change says Ranger Green. Thats where I got concerned my uniforms may not work. Im probably concerned over nothing, but shot the question out there in case. Thanks again for your time! Looking forward to IronHorse2

The safe answer is....  No.   Ranger green =/= sage green.

OCP is Multicam/ Multicam is OCP.  It's the same thing as far as the Army is concerned, and it's the same thing as far as AMS is concerned.

Thank you so much Alex!!
