So what would be the best camo for a forest like this? Flecktarn is not working there at all.
(probably ) flecktarn D camo
russian Palm camo
chinese type 07 woodland
AOR 2 ( or 1, i forgot wich one is the green type ) also NWU green
1964 tiger stripe, not the 1991 OPFOR version wich is more darker
mitchell's vine pattern
that USMC camo that look like AUSCAM used during the pacific war
and that's all i think
Whole area is pretty much a forest grew on old fort
I hear tiger stripe actually sucks.
>but i still love it
>YOU SHOULD GET X OBSCURE MILSURP CAMO YOU WONT FIND ANY GEAR IN.
>"Yeah dude I got this carthaginian woodland camo for $60 on ebay, its way legit"
/k/ in a nutshell
Just buy some woodland and ignore /k/
Well special forces did use it quite often, but apparently as general camo it was crappy.
I suppose the idea was to be able to get pretty close to your adversary before he could see you. But that's just some shit I heard on /k/
That doesnt stop me from wearing tiger stripe BDUs inna woods kek
I recommended dpm-95 as you can get a jacket and trousers for about £10 pretty much anywhere here (UK). I expect it is a similar story with old woodland camos wherever you are from
This, or CADPAT. Woodland from a surplus store if you can't order online/ have a small budget.
>So what would be the best camo for a forest like this?
Commercial hunting pattern camo.
Military camo is always going to be a compromise and while it's good for a lot of environments,
it'll never be as good as commercial hunting camo specifically designed for a particular environment.
God I really hate to say this joke tier company put out something that would work anywhere, but I have to speak the truth.
Realistically, unless you're hunting turkey, your prey has worse eyesight than you. Old tricolor will do fine for 90% of forests in the US. Spending more will only get you very marginal returns if you already have something like MARPAT
That said, Mossy oak and Lost camo are the sexiest commercial camo.
Seconded. M05 is absolutely beautiful.
Good only for a specific area in a specific season, and only when standing still. It's a decent choice for hunters, but if OP wants to play with airshit or prep for SHTF, military camouflage patterns are a better investment.
>I was laughing at you quoting multicam for use in defense of the other camo not being joke tier
>I-i'm not a hobo, this is normal, see there are plenty of other people living in boxes as well, normal.
I'm jelly, finnfriend
How impossible is it to get M05?
The Army has spent years and millions of dollars in two separate trials empirically testing camouflage and twice declared the Multicam family of patterns to be superior to all others.
You can ignore the evidence of these findings, but it doesn't change the facts.
You think this is a motherfucking game?
So not that much then...?
That's actually not too bad.
>outperformed literally every other camo on the market
Get a load of this faggot.
>I don't have any facts to support my opinions
Just spreading awareness. OP wants a camouflage for a specific environment, Multicam and it's derivatives are proven to be the best. Let the facts be known.
And where did they test tropic you retard?
Further more if you read their actual tests you would see that there were camo paterns that beat multicam.
Stop pulling shit out of your ass.
>implying you do.
Why yes, in fact I do.
>And where did they test tropic you retard?
You can go back through the past three years worth of news regarding the camo trials if you want to read the specifics of the scientific method used to evaluate patterns.
>Further more if you read their actual tests you would see that there were camo paterns that beat multi cam.
That statement may be true in specific environments, for instance Multicam is not a suitable camouflage for dense jungle environments - Hence Multicam Tropic. That's why the testing was for a family of camouflages with the transitional variant of the final four contestants shown in pic related. Of all these finalists it was concluded that the Multicam family of patterns to include Aird and Tropical variants there of performed better than any other.
>Stop pulling shit out of your ass.
Again, these are the facts. You're just going to have to deal with them.
>>Further more if you read their actual tests you would see that there were camo paterns that beat multi cam
Just to further debunk this statement I should point out that the specific data from the Phase IV trials have not been released other than the final four contestants and obviously the overall winner.
If you're attempting to refer to the 2009 camo trials you'll find that Multicam (now OCP) did in fact perform the best, and that's why it won.
DON'T FORGET ME!
Why can't you see that those LE versions are shitty, worthless, goof ninja crap.
>Good only when standing still
That's one of the stupidest things I've ever read. Are you suggesting someone will be spotted while
moving in commercial hunting camo, because the observer notices a leaf or branch in the camo pattern
is out of place?
Give your email address and I'll send you the seller's info. Like I said earlier, he's probably sold it all already, but it can't hurt to ask.
He also had M05 woodland fabric for sale at a price of 25eur/1.5x1m
> Human eye is good at picking up movement
Yet not better then prey animals.
> and commercial hunting camo does nothing to break the silhouette.
All right, _this_ is the stupidest thing I've ever read...
You're right. Mossy Oak is awesome. Too bad most of it isn't treated with fire retardant or you'll be like this when tracers hit your position
after reading where this thread went i'm not so sure i want to post this here...
But i'm going hunting on the 4th for the first time. It was a last minute planned thing and i cannot post pone it so i will have to go with the best camo (at a low price).
needs to be durable as possible but i don't really care if it doesn't blend in as well as real tree does. I don't have the money for real tree and honestly don't see much point in it as my state requires i wear a significant amount of orange anyway.
Pic related is in the same Unit i'm going hunting in. I'll be hunting prong horn, any cheap recommendations?
just gonna throw this out there and say "anything but this"
>or in other words they didn't test tropic.
No other words, just simple ones you refuse to accept: They tested transitional, tropic and arid version of Multicam, and they performed better than the transitional, tropic and arid versions of everything else. It's not that hard to understand, but then again I'm not mentally challenged.
tracers arent that flammable. Ive shot plenty of god damn tracers and ive only caught something on fire once.....there was a severe drought and I actually burned down the range at fort bragg. (I was a muhreen training there). Oh the memories.
I honestly wonder if Hugo boss would ever design another military uniform given the Nazi ties of the past.
I think we need more designers making uniforms, The pattern stay the same however the cut is what the designers would modify
Are you retarded?
DPM was made in the early 60's based on the early Denison smock pattern, a brushstroke pattern from WW2.
M81 woodland was made in 1981 from ERDL which itself was based off of WW2 German Leibermuster.
Not as good as terrain specific camo (no universal camo will beat a terrain specific one in its native environment), but the best of the "universal" designs. Heavy on the brown, with strokes or green and tan, just like multicam.
Sorry about the photo quality. Apparently they only had potatoes to takes pictures of thsi stuff.
So in your opinion he shouldn't use UCP, Multicam, a woodland patterned ghillie suit, or sniper veils?
Because ghillie suits and sniper veils really help in wooded terrain in my opinion.
The tiger stripes are meant to "break up" the longest parts into visually smaller ones. A tiger is longer horizontal than it is vertical, so the stripes are vertical.
A human is vertically longer, so the stripes run horizontal to make the human appear as shorter sections. Please note that this also works when a human lies prone, as the stripes then are vertical breaking up the long horizontal form the same way it does on the tiger.
