BDUs are the standard dress for the UNSC Marines, Army, Special Forces and Airforce. They are made from weaves of synthetic materials and Nanotech Polymers the change colour and pattern when the small controlling chip in each garment is sent an encoded radio signal usually from the operators helmet or neural interface. This allows a single set of BDUs to interface with armour and additional clothing and then create needed camo pattern required for the environment, with a randomized pattern and almost 20 types of camo, each with 400 variations. These patterns can be rectified or have additional patterns uploaded for new battlefields. They are treated with infra-red absorbing dyes that must be reapplied over time to give them an infra-red 'black body' to match background thermal radiation.

The BDU consists of a blouse, trousers, head gear, undergarment, socks and optional warm weather gear and boots. BDUs are produced in a number of sizes and in gender options. Sizes are fitted as closely as possible to ensure the infra-red systems work efficiently.

Boots

  • The standard issue boots are made with leather uppers with breathable nylon sections and thermal regulation lining and with plates of diamond weave Kevlar and uses nano mechanics with bi polymeric technology to give the user increased stamina recovery and damage that could potentially be taken from a fall by absorbing energy from it into the boot and dispersing it outwards. The sole also has resin boded micromesh kevlar that gives some resistance to foots and anecdotal sources believe it may have some marginal defence against landmines.
