An army uniform that will be phased out in favour of a pair of khaki pants could be the answer to a nation’s desire for an alternative to the current look.
The uniform could be part of the new army uniform, but there’s no word yet on when it might be unveiled.
In a statement, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) said the change would “ensure the Australian uniform is worn as part of a uniform that is relevant to the operational requirements of Australian Defence Forces”.
“The new uniform will be an updated version of the existing uniform, which incorporates all the features we already have in the Australian Army’s current uniform,” it said.
“We have worked hard over the past couple of years to bring this uniform into being.
As we have progressed, we have seen a significant change in the military look over the last few years, and the changes to the uniform have been extremely positive for the organisation.”
The Australian Army already has a wide range of uniforms.
There are currently uniforms for infantry, artillery, air defence and logistics, as well as for reservists.
For those serving overseas, there is a wide selection of army uniform colours, as are available for use in Australia.
However, there are currently no uniform for civilians, meaning a military uniform could still be seen in many places.
Nike said in the statement it would continue to “support” the army uniform and provide further details when the new uniform was unveiled.
The new army will have a new colour scheme, which is currently available to use in the uniforms.
It also comes amid a renewed focus on military-style haircuts.
On the issue of soldiers wearing a full beard, the Defence Department said it would consider what other options existed.
While the change in appearance of the uniform will affect a number of military positions, it is likely to affect the whole Australian Army, and would not affect those serving in reserve.
It said the changes were also likely to impact the military’s ability to train troops, with some units not having access to the new uniforms until the new one is available.
