Advanced body armor is going to be increasingly important for 21st Century infantry combat. However, just as important, or perhaps even more important, will be to have effective camouflage, so your enemy doesn’t see you in the first place. It’s simple logic, "what you can’t see, you can’t hit." Effective disruptive camouflage is thus going to be an extremely important complement to combat body armor for future infantry warfare.
While doing our research on the U.S. Army’s new Army Combat Uniform (ACU) and it’s predecessor’s MARPAT (USMC’s digitized camouflage pattern) and CADPAT (Canadian Army’s digital camo), DefRev has discovered that Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp. has developed a new advanced disruptive camouflage pattern called Fracture Camouflage™.
According to the company, Fracture Camouflage™ solves digital camo’s (digitized camouflage pattern) problem of…
losing its effectiveness (disruptive effect) out past 100 yards.
Here’s an excerpt from the Hyperstealth Elite Fracture Camouflage™ page:
"A recent symposium on body armor ended with the recommendation of attendees that more effort should be put into camouflage research, body armor should be a second priority behind finding effective camouflage "What you can’t see, you can’t hit!" Body armor is required when an adversary has acquired a target.
Camouflage is an identifier, a uniform, it promotes a position of authority and conceals the user under the correct conditions. It needs to look professional, daunting, and most importantly – stealthy in a combat zone. If the pattern is unique then there is less chance of friendly fire accidents. If the pattern and colors blend in better then there is less likely chance of the adversary acquiring you sooner."
