The 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment Shoulder Sleeve Insignia is available as a full-color patch and an “ACU” patch manufactured in either the Universal Camouflage Pattern or the Operational Camouflage Pattern. The full-color patch was designed for wear on the Army Class “A” Green service uniform, which was discontinued in 2015; we continue to carry it (and the Class “A” Green uniform) due to high demand from veterans, collectors, and organizations seeking authentic insignias and uniforms for a variety of purposes.

If you’re choosing the ACU patch, please ensure you select the camouflage pattern that matches the ACU or utility uniform which you’ll be wearing it on. The Army stopped issuing uniforms with the old UCP beginning in 2015, but has given Soldiers until 1 October 2019 to replace UCP-based garments with the newer OCP variants.

Customers who’ve purchased the 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment unit patch have also expressed a strong interest in the Regiment’s Combat Service ID badge (CSIB), which features the same design, and the 278th’s Regimental Distinctive Insignia (unit crest).
