About 3-Color Desert Camouflage
The 3-color desert camouflage pattern of the Desert Camouflage Uniform (DCU). Also called tri-color desert, it was prominently used by the USMC in arid environments from the mid-1990s to early 2010s. This pattern is comprised of coyote brown, pale olive green, and desert tan.
Designed for optimal concealment in desert terrains, it was notably utilized in key conflicts like the Persian Gulf War, the Iraq War, and early operations in Afghanistan. While the Marines were prominent users, this pattern was also issued by the US Army, Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard during this period.
Its adoption marked a strategic shift to better suit the open desert battlefields encountered, moving away from the previous six-color “chocolate chip” camo pattern.
