All the MCU's also share a subdued (or darkened/greyed) unit patch, subdued combadge and subdued rank pip.

The MCU's also have 2 different vest types. The first is a light body armor designed to protect against bladed weapons and medium power energy blasts, 2 to 3 direct shots. The second is a tactical vest, designed to carry extra power cells, small equipment, explosives and more depending on the configuration. Both come in black, light brown and white.
