The new lightweight contemporary uniform utilises the latest technology, enhancing the safety and comfort of members wearing it.
Manufactured in Australia, the MMPU has retained its gray tone similar to that of the Disruptive Pattern Navy Uniform (DPNU), but a point of difference are the two variants now available, a flame resistant and non-flame resistant version, depending on the roles of the member.
The uniform rollout commenced in the warmer tropical areas of the Northern Territory and North Queensland and is expected to be delivered to all other units by the end of 2022.
Navy people in North Queensland and the Northern Territory are the first to be issued the new Maritime Multi-Cam Pattern Uniform (MMPU).
The MMPU uniform replaces the Disruptive Pattern Navy Uniform ( DPNU), which has been in service for the last 12 years.
The roll-out of MMPU across Navy is scheduled to take place progressively across states and complete in late 2022.
