That's MARPAT, which is a derivation of CADPAT, the Canadian Forces' new
(as of 1998ish) camo pattern.

It looks like all the US services are going digital, more or less.

Canadian Land Forces info here: (long URL, sorry)

There are lots more photos on the Cdn Forces website; run a search for
CADPAT to find them.

It's nice to see the US is, once again, trying to catch up to Canada.
<large, evil grin> Actually, this stuff was a Canadian invention; the US
Marines worked with the CF on their MARPAT pattern.

These patterns are pretty easy to fake on miniatures - use a stiff brush
and stipple/drybrush over the basecoat, to get the ragged edges that the
fractal pixelization gives the real thing.
