In a move that will make it the first European nation to make its uniforms military-like, Italy will unveil them at the end of the month.
In a move to mark the beginning of the military-fashion season, the Italian Ministry of Defense has been designing the uniforms and will start distributing them to soldiers by the end (16 March).
The ministry said the uniforms will be used by all the military forces in Italy.
It is understood that the uniforms are based on the same principles as the uniforms worn by the US military in the last decade.
In order to make the uniforms look “more modern”, the ministry has designed them with a black-and-white camouflage pattern.
The first uniform of the new season will be worn by soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team (2nd CoT) and the 8th Battalion, 7th Airborne Division (8th BCT) on March 16.
It will be followed by the first-ever uniform of a unit from the 1st Battalion, 2nd Armored Regiment (1st BTR), on March 19.
The Ministry of Defence has said it will start wearing the new uniforms in early May.
