Stars and Stripes reports that the U.S. military is recalling its pixelated grey-khaki camouflage uniforms that have been used in the Middle East since 2004.

The troops are now being outfitted with more traditional greenish MultiCam duds (right) while the government tests out the effectiveness of new patterns.
