    Love this quiz
    saw some cammo I never saw before and I have (being a military buff) seen a lot.
    Wish all were available for purchase (without costing a mint) except for ACU…no offence whoever came up with that should be fired.

    russia has an exact copy of german flecktarn. could have made that a tricky question. 15/15 right german bgs and wwii ss camo would have been tri ky also. r austrian pea dot vs german

      I was considering something along those lines, but Flecktarn (and its many mutations) is used by so many militaries that it would’ve felt a little cheap.

      Also, nice score!

      Ummmmmmmmmm…?

      The universal pattern was chosen after several laboratory and field tests that occurred from 2003 to 2004… Vietnam ended in 1975…

    14 out of 15, screwed up on Flecktarn desert. :(

    I must complain that the graphic depicting CCE isn’t that great. I collect CCE and I had to do a ‘best guess’ even though I’m a collector of that particular camo. The colors look off.

    Lots of fun. Thanks for the quiz. I missed MARPAT, though, and that’s one of my favorite patterns. I knew the answer but second-guessed myself. I really like that Russian Berezhka. I’ve never seen that one before.

    You missed an important fact about the MARPAT. Built into the camo you will fine the Eagle Globe and Anchor (EGA) symbol of the USMC. This kept other services from adopting it. :)
