US Army’s Pixellated Camo Uniform Is a £3 Billion Failure

Whereas pixillation is usually very successful at obscuring images otherwise unfit to be seen, the US Army is £3 billion in the hole, with its pixellated camo uniform (introduced in 2004) being dubbed a colossal mistake.

The Daily reports that soldiers have roundly criticised the gray-green uniform for standing out almost everywhere it’s been worn.

Essentially, the Army designed a universal uniform that universally failed in every environment, a US Army specialist who served two tours in Iraq told The Daily.

Now, US Army researchers and textile technologists are working feverishly to design a new, less conspicuous camo pattern — via redwolf.newsvine.com
