Don't be so cynical about the CF and the CTS program. All the Reg F in LFWA have been issued with the new Gortex items and the Res F will be issued shortly (note HQ pers (REG OR RES) will be the last to be issued the items). The remainder of the CTS items will be forthcoming in the next couple of years.

The new CADPAT (disruptive pattern uniforms) will begin being issued in the next 6 months. Note there will be a period of both uniforms (new and old) being used. I think the entire CF is to be issued the CADPAT by 2004.

I agree with you comments about the 82 style webbing and rucksack. I was never convinced that the rucksack was better then the one it replaced. However, considering what we used for webbing in the early 80s (a belt, a yoke, and a canteen - pouches if you bought them yourself). I think it was a significant improvement.

There is no reason to be cynical about the army these days...there are too many new eqpt projects and programs to decry the "poor state of the army". In a couple of years we will be better eqpt and better trained then the "cold war days".

Quit your bellyaching!
