No. The term “ACU” and “OCP” actually refer to two totally different concepts. The confusion around the topic stems from people using the name for a uniform cut and the name of a camouflage pattern interchangeably.
With that said, in terms of camouflage patterns, “ACU” is generally a misnomer for the Universal Camouflage Pattern and it is completely different from the Operational Camouflage Pattern (aka OCP, Scorpion OCP and Scorpion W2).
Regarding uniform components, the Army “ACU” and the USAF “OCP” uniforms are actually the same basic uniform components cut to the same standards (i.e. coat and trousers). Variations generally only come about when detailing boots, badges and insignia.
Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) Uniform, originally codenamed Scorpion W2 by the U.S. Army, the camouflage pattern was first adopted in 2015 by the United States Army as the primary camouflage pattern on the Army Combat Uniform (ACU). Today, the "OCP Uniform" is the primary combat uniform for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, and the U.S. Space Force.
