What I find amusing is the current US Navy Camouflage. It's pretty, and certainly stands out from the other services, but I have to ask "WHAT is it expected to camouflage"? As camouflage, it seems pretty worthless, unless you are in the water, which is exactly the time you want a blaze orange suit, not camouflage. I have been told it will camouflage you against the backdrop of the ship you are on (grey hull, deck, etc.)-- But if the enemy can see the ship, I fail to see how camouflaging the individual sailors on the deck will help. If the enemy can't see the ship, then camouflage is probably unnecessary.......

Unless the enemy is a superior looking for volunteers to chip paint, or whatever it is sailors do all day.... :-)
