Camo WorldCamouflage is also known as "cryptic coloration" and "concealing coloration." Camouflage allows a person, animal or object to be almost indistinguishable from its surrounding environment.
Many animals make use of camouflage: the arctic fox has a brown coat in the summertime but a white coat in winter, for example. The color of the fox's coat helps it blend into its surroundings.
But most camouflage relies less on color and more on disguising the overall shape. Military camouflage works by breaking up the outline of the human body to allow soldiers to conceal themselves in jungles, forest, and deserts.
Camouflage became an essential part of modern military tactics after the development of weapons with improved accuracy and rate of fire during the 19th century. Until the 20th century, armies tended to use bright colours and bold, impressive designs, despite the demonstrated value of camouflage. These were intended to daunt the enemy, foster unit cohesion, allow easier identification of units in the fog of war, and attract recruits. The main intent of camouflage is to disrupt a soldier's outline as seen by the human eye by merging in with the surroundings, making them a harder target to spot or hit. Different countries have undergone different evolution stages towards the development of military camouflage.
