Camouflage Painting

Camouflage Painting

 

one of the types of concealment painting used to make it difficult to recognize various objects by visual-optic and photographic means of reconnaissance. Camouflage painting most often involves the use of two or three colors in large spots in order to distort the external appearance of the object (for example, the tank, building, airfield, or ship). The color of particular spots and strips of paint are merged with the surrounding background. The spots and strips are usually different in shape and size, at an angle of 30°-60° to the contours of the object, and overlap from one surface of the object to another.
