    It kind of looks like dazzle paint from WW1.

    Looks just like a cool ship in the water. I would be more impressed if the camo made it look like large VW bug in the water. Snipers will tell you it isn't the camo but movement that is the issue.

    Looks great but can it fight?

    How do you access the forecastle, and where is the signal bridge?

    lol, yeah, cause when you want to attack a ship, they are all using their site to find them, and not radar and infrared. I wonder how much they spent developing that.

    Yeah, a cool paint job and dramatic music will defend against an ASCM. Ex-FFG CSO.

    Color me "underwhelmed". They forgot to paint the bow wave and the wake, and the down-sun side of the ship is still colored "shadow". Well, at least nobody will see the sailors on the deck in their new camo work uniforms. Maybe the sequestration will have a good effect if it knocks off time and funds for foolishness like this.

    Yeah they couldn't get the paint to match back during her commissioning ceremony either and it was ostensibly all one shade of grey back then.

    ce camouflage est il vraiment efficace ? J'ai un doute... il ne brise pas vraiment les lignes de la silhouette et donc son identification visuelle...
