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.
