Description

(OD) Olive Drab is variously described as a “dull olive-green color” which is a shade of greenish-brown. It was widely used as a camouflage color for uniforms and equipment in the armed forces, particularly by the U.S. Army during World War 2.

The first recorded use of olive drab as a color name in English was in 1892. Drab is an older color name, from the middle of the 16th century. It refers to a dull light brown color, the color of cloth made from undyed homespun wool. It took its name from the old French word for cloth, drap.

Olive drab was the color of the standard fighting uniform for U.S. GIs and military vehicles during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. U.S. soldiers often referred to their uniforms as “OD’s” due to the color. The color used at the beginning of World War 2 by the U.S. Army was officially called Olive Drab #3, which was replaced by Olive Drab #7 by 1944, and which was again replaced by Olive Green 107 or OG-107 in 1952 during the Korea War, and continued as the official uniform color for combat fatigues through the Vietnam War, until replaced by M81 woodland camo fatigues as the primary U.S. uniform pattern (based on the ERDL pattern used by some soldiers in Vietnam), which retained olive drab as one of the color swatches in the pattern.

As a solid color, it is not as effective for camouflage as multiple-color camo schemes (e.g., U.S. Army Combat Uniform, Tigerstripe, MARPAT, Multicam, etc.), though it is still used by the U.S. military to color webbing and accessories. The armies of Israel, India, Cuba, Venezuela, and Austria wear solid color olive drab uniforms.
