The earliest camouflage color uniforms were British troops. In December 1864, British Captain Harry Barnard Ramstain 

organized the Irregular Army "British Army Reconnaissance Team" in the Peshawar region of Pakistan. When making a 

reconnaissance army uniforms, Ramstin selected the khaki uniforms for the purpose of reconnoitring camouflage because of 

the exposed nature of the local yellow land and the large sandstorms. In later combat operations, this uniforms played a better 

camouflage effect. Originated from the Scottish hunting bird camouflage clothing, the prototype of the camouflage clothing, 

dating back to Scotland's "Gillie Suit" (Ghillie Suit). This was originally a camouflaged utensil used by Orion, according to legend 

for hunter Geely (Ghillie) invented, mainly used in stealth in the jungle, paralyze birds for hunting. The initial Geely suit was a 

coat adorned with many ropes and bands, concealed well in dense vegetation and difficult to detect even by vigilant birds


Geely service was popular in World War II and renamed the "Sniper suit", Snipe (Sand Conch) is fast and difficult to hunt, while 

those who specialize in hunting such birds are called Sniper , Then became a sniper's nomenclature.


In 1899, the British troops invaded South Africa and engaged in a "British Bo war" lasting 3 years with the Burmese, the Dutch 

descendants of the region. Boolean troops less, more British troops, the two sides compared the military strength of about 1: 5. 

However, the Boers found that the British military wearing red uniforms was particularly eye-catching and easily exposed in the 

green of forests and savannahs in South Africa. Inspired by the Boers, they immediately changed their garments and guns to 

grass greens, hiding in the dense jungle. Boolees often unknowingly close to the British army, a sudden attack, playing the 

British unprepared, but the British want to fight but hard to find the target. Although the British military finally won the war, the 

British casualties reached more than 90,000, far exceeding the number of casualties of the Boer army.


This war has enabled all European countries to realize the importance of camouflage on the modern battlefield, with colorful 

military uniform colors changing to green or yellow in order to achieve the goal of concealment. After the First World War, the 

advent of various optical reconnaissance equipment made it very difficult for soldiers wearing uniforms to adapt to a multi-

colored background environment.


In 1929, Italy developed the world's first camouflage clothing, which has brown, yellow, green and yellow brown 4 colors; 1943, 

Germany, some soldiers equipped with 3 camouflage uniforms, this camouflage clothing over irregular shapes On the other 

hand, some of the patches are similar in color to the background color, and some of the patches are obviously different from the 

background color, and the visual effect is divided into the human body shape , So as to achieve the effect of camouflage 



German camouflage uniforms in the actual combat received good results, and later countries have followed suit the military, and 

camouflage colors and plaque shape to improve the study. After the 1960s, newly developed camouflage clothing made of 

synthetic chemical fiber, not only in the anti-visible light reconnaissance superior than the original cotton material, but also due 

to the dyed in the dye into a special chemical substances, so that camouflage infrared reflectivity With the reflection of the 

surrounding scenery is generally similar, and thus has some anti-infrared light detection camouflage effect.


Nowadays, camouflage has not only been used on soldiers' military uniforms and helmets, but also camouflaged on a variety of 

military equipment such as military vehicles, cannons, and even aircraft.
