(June 20, 2005, Vancouver, B.C.) The Military Office of His Majesty announced today that the Royal Naval Force of Jordan had selected the KA2 Deep Blue Digital color scheme for their new uniform. Jordan Naval Strength - approximately 500 with three Hawk Class heavy patrol boats.
Over 300,000 "KA2" Digital patterned uniforms have been manufactured to date for the Royal Guard, Special Forces, Army (Strength 86,000), Air Force (Strength 16,000), Public Security Directorate (Police) and the Civil Defense Directorate. The addition of the Deep Blue Digital color scheme for the Royal Naval Forces brings to six the number of color scheme used within the Jordanian Armed Forces, Law Enforcement and the Civil Defense Services.
The KA2 Deep Blue Digital color scheme was conceived of in early 2004 as a night pattern for Jordan's Counter Terrorism Battalion (CTB) 71 with prototypes, uniforms were received in October 2004, many months prior to the U.S. Navy fielding a Digital Blue / Grey design based on the U.S. Marines MARPAT pattern currently in limited wear testing within the U.S. Navy.
The KA2 Deep Blue Digital pattern was not adopted for CTB 71 due to the confusion that might initially arise due to the previous DPM Blue color scheme used by the Police in Jordan, with Jordan's Police force (Public Security Directorate) now converting to the new KA2 PSD Urban Gray Digital pattern with a quick phase out of the DPM Blue, the Royal Naval Force saw the opportunity to acquire a distinct Naval colored uniform.
New patterns are being developed for the Jordanian Counter Terrorism Battalion 71 using recent research findings which have advanced the knowledge and understanding of special concealment techniques in urban and night settings.
