Camouflage is a common method mainly used in military and hunting. The main function of camouflage is to reduce its visibility as an artificial protective color, to prevent it from being discovered by enemies or prey, thereby losing its initiative or endangering its own security.
The word camouflage originates from French, with the original meaning of "deception". A camouflage is composed of two elements:
1.Pattern / Color Block Shape (Line)
2.Color (color matching)
All camouflage is the result of the combination of the two.
There are many colors used in camouflage, generally two or three (monochrome is not called camouflage), and as many as five or six. For example, the most classic Sansha patterns (three colors are known from the name).
For example, Earth Federation Camouflage MultiCam (not counting the gradient is 5 colors)
For example,Malaysian BOMBA camouflage
For example, ATACS-LE is one of the few camouflage patterns with a black background.
