I'm 19 years old and a Sophomore in college. One day I wanna be a surgeon or something that lets me travel. I'm a huge gamer (Gamertag: Izan Garaile) and the Mass Effect series has taken over a good portion of my life. I'm here to meet some new people so feel free to follow me, I follow back. :)

    Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”

    Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.

    DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS

    YOU WILL LOSE

    This is fucking dumb as hell.

    First off, those images don’t actually have anyone in them. You can zoom in and see for yourself. They’re low resolution images the OP took at a random forest. There are no other examples online. They circled something far enough away that you could never tell.

    Lastly, that’s not how the pattern would work anyway. You’d still notice their silhouette, their helmet, and their gear unless it was some sort of ghillie suit (then it’s not even the same thing). That’s not to say the pattern doesn’t work but here’s the best example I could find.

    If you notice, the pattern is designed for an autumn environment. It wouldn’t work elsewhere. That’s why other countries don’t use it. Not because it isn’t “masculine” or whatever bullshit Tumblr is trying to spin. That thing would be a bright bulls eye in Afghanistan.

    Here’s an example of the camouflage we use (multicam):

    Finally, other countries have in fact used splotches of red or shades of pink. The Nazis were the first to use one (it was called Leibermuster), which in turn became the foundation for the Swiss pattern shown above (Alpenflage/TAZ 83; you can tell by the name alone that it was designed with the Alps in mind, nowhere else). The Soviet Union and its successor states (Russia, Ukraine, etc.) have also used some really bizarre red camos.

    At the end of the day, the Swiss changed the pattern to a more typical woodland green, brown, and black pattern in the ’90s (TAZ 90). So the whole argument is moot.

    The only nation that services a red-coloured pattern is Oman and it’s stupid as fuck.
