US Army ACU Colours

What are the actual colours used in the current US Army’s ACU camouflage?

Thanks,

Paul

The term ACU refers to the cut of the uniform. You can have either Universal Digtial Pattern (the Grey/Green/Sand one) or Operational Combat Pattern (the one that looks a little like Woodland Pattern).
For both uniforms I use my Mk.2 eyeball to get the tones right.
Alpine Miniatures have a painting guide for UDP ACU on the homepage.

Hermann,
Thanks for the clarification.
Yes, ‘OCP’ was what was referring to.
I’ve seen various photographs, but often
due to lighting, they colours tend to vary
in appearance (particularly when viewed
on the computer screen). I’ll check out the
Alpine site.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi,
I did not find on Alpine homepage (https://alpineminiatures.com/) any link for the painting guide.
Could you help me please/

Hi Fernando, check their Modern US Army soldiers #35069, 35070 and 35071. If you click the figure, you will get link to the painting guide.
