    looks like UCP

  2. cy says:

    Looks like the WWI & II Dazzelflage used to confuse German U-boats.

  3. Jon, OPT says:

    Wasn’t this a Jams pattern from the 80’s?

    Y voit rien. Je comprends.

    What on earth does this blend with?

    • Lcon says:

      Acid Trips.

    • Greg says:

      maybe they went with the zebra logic, we don’t blend with anything in the environment, except we blend with ourselves! So if they keep their soldiers tightly packed together, you’ll never be able to pick out an individual threat. God help them if something explosive happens to find them.

  6. Philip says:

    There are green and red variants of this pattern as well. It’s like trippy Swedish M90…

    • Colin says:

      I guess the point of this is not to blend but to quickly ID a Gendarmerie when you need on

      • mark says:

        Exactly. A Gendarmerie is a police role, so the goal is to be highly visible and distinct.

        This certainly achieves that : )

    Designed to blend in with Zebras

  8. Eric B says:

    I think its quite effective. It hurt my eyes so much I just had to look away!

  9. Toby says:

    I thought UCP was bad. Shazam, Kid and Play in da house! Ok seriously, what happened to function first? I feel a real personal statement comes from the ability to perform. If that is the standard the uniform reflects. Oh well, at least lions will be confused when these soldiers are IMTing!

    Has nothing to do with camo and everything do with standing out. I sure dont see Brookwood or Duro printing this any time soon!

  11. Dave says:

    Shinseki Approved!

    SSD, you could do a “Weird Camos from Around the World” segment once a week! I see many entertaining posts and reactions coming from it. 😉

  13. Disco says:

    Is it me or is there like a woman’s face if you relax your gaze a bit.
    Or am I like the fat kid from Mallrats?

  14. Gizmo says:

    automotive test mule camo

  15. Matt says:

    I think it looks a lot like many of the war paint patterns seen on bodies faces and shields of African tribes

  16. Maskirovka says:

    Yaaawn. Needs more beret.

  17. chris says:

    Is the Army competition for a new pattern over yet? If not, I see shelf space in Clothing Sales

    if yu go to the camopedia site it has info about the camo patterns used in the Ivory Coast: “In mid-2012, the Gendarmerie Nationale appeared in public for the first time wearing uniforms inspired by the splinter camouflage designs first developed by the Germans during the Second World War. The first of these patterns features black and light brown splinter shapes on a grass green background, with the national coat-of-arms incorporated into the design in black ink… A variant pattern for the Gendarmerie exists with splinter shapes in solid black as well as shapes in a composite of black dots, both on a pale blue background.”
