The map above shows the world’s military camouflages. It’s based on the country’s primary camo and does not taken into account different branches of the military in each country. Moreover, the original map creators are aware that there are a few inaccuracies and out-of-date designs included.
Iceland has no camouflage as it has no standing army whereas Chile’s is so good it blends completely into Argentina. Also check out the leopard print used in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Thus, while the map may not be perfect, I think it still qualifies as interesting. And if you like Camouflage maps you may also like the map below. Which gives camos to different regions of the United States based on their predominant biome.
