The Desert Battle Dress Uniform camouflage, or DBDU, is a U.S. arid-environment camouflage battle uniform that was used by the United States Armed Forces from the early 1980s to the early to mid-1990s (1976–1995), most notably during the Persian Gulf War. officially known as the Desert Camouflage Pattern, and also known colloquially as "coffee stain camouflage", was developed to replace the six-color desert camouflage "chocolate-chip camouflage" uniform, which was deemed unsuitable for most desert combat theaters. As opposed to the original six-color DBDU, which was meant for a rockier and elevated desert battlefield that was often not encountered, the DCU was created primarily for a lower, more open, and less rocky desert battlefield space which became a common sight throughout the Persian Gulf War.
Although the U.S. military has long since abandoned the pattern, it is still in widespread use by militaries across the world as of the early 2010s.
