The Multi-Environment Camouflage fabric (BME) adapts to both grassy and desert areas. It will gradually replace the central European or desert patterns currently in use. The two companies, TDV Industries and EUROPROTECT, who will perform all the services in France, are among the three winners of the call-for-tenders to manufacture the fabrics of the future uniforms for the French army.
This ultralight material, which required years of research and is resistant to fire and tearing, is a compendium of technology.
Three million linear metres of F3 fabric, for an estimated sum of €75 million, will come out of these French factories over two years, allowing the production of 300,000 outfits using Multi-Environment Camouflage fabric (BME).
