If by "SF" Special Forces is meant, then they should do whatever they believe will work best to get the job done safely and well, and the rule book writers oughta focus their attention somewhere else.

I vote both Yes & No for the following reasons.

Vote "Yes", since always so obnoxiously proud of my Old Units, I can't imagine myself ever having worn some cockamamie foreign garb, unless on some covert mission.

Vote "No", since always being quite sensible and practical, I wouldn't like standing-out as a prime target for enemy murderers.
Hey,...call me: "Chicken" or whatever.

Great point! The ones writing any of these rules should go out and spend a day in uniform on the "line" and see if SF's uniform is safer or if what they're wearing now is safer. NO they should not be required to wear traditional "garb" if they're safer this way.
