Orc Industries will be ending their production run of the PCU L4 and L5 items (another company is continuing the contract), and are introducing their alternative, dubbed the Modified Combat Uniform (MCU).
Orc’s MCU L4 and L5 evolved from their PCU line, with a few minor changes, and will be offered to both Military personnel and civilians. PCU was not available in ACU (Universal Pattern), but MCU will be available in both Alpha Green and Universal Pattern (as an alternative to the equivalent ECWCS Gen III items).
Since the MCU items are very similar in design to the previous PCU articles, I’ll focus on the differences, rather than the similarities. Please refer to the ORC PCU review section following this one for more info.
