"Army issues face mask and the official name is so long it requires an acronym"

"The branch, in developing the nomenclature for its tactical face fabric, has opted to officially name it the 'Combat Cloth Face Covering' — CCFC for short"

From the official announcement:

The CCFC was designed, developed, and produced along an expedited timeline. It normally takes 18–24 months for DLA to have the item available for order once the technical description, design, and components are approved and submitted. The CCFC, from inception to issuance, is slated to take less than one year.
