    I dunno if this link will work, but it should be a shot of marines on USS Boxer in July 2013, getting into their MOPP gear, wearing the new USMC pattern digital desert cam utilities and putting on woodland pattern NBC suits. Hey seem to be using the latest respirators, suggesting the woodland kit is still state of the art.

    I have also found pics of marines practicing wearing the 2 colour desert NBC suits

    But nothing new....

    But I am your side of the pond, and NBC gear is not a priority anymore, so it may be there is new stuff that is kept for best but they are using up the older pattern suits for training....it's certainly what we would have done in the army here and what we do with cbrn gear in the police...I have live suits I keep for when the balloon goes up, and a training suit which is about 5 years and 2 editions out of date that I wear in exercises.

    My guess is that the woodland and 2 colour desert is still good, so hot toys sniper gear a la jarhead and generation kill would still work , but if it is posture black you will need the newer resi from the Eod figure or the upcoming did swat
