Marines test new helo camouflage scheme

You know them as fearless fighters. You know them as the first to be called upon when our nation requires a Show of Force. You probably don't know, though, that in the little downtime they have, they aren't just lounging around the barracks. Or tent.

As example I offer an example of their cunning ingenuity...

Problem:  Helicopters, when not aloft, require camouflage. Not satisfied with the run-of-the-mill paint scheme, an inventive Marine developed a diabolical pattern.

As seen from a distance.

As seen close up.

I found the pictures here.  The original poster noted that he thought the guy had been "staring at the back of a semi-truck for too long."

Semper Fi!
