Use the spell checker.

Also, what do you mean, you will see who's better, the Canadians or the Belgians? Better at what?


How long has Belgium been in Afghanistan, I haven't heard anything about them being there.

No  ,thats wright ,thats because the Belgian army has only troops on the airfield . (And those gays are the army ). And now they sending us ( the paratroopers )for the first time to Afghanistan .And i think Will meet ,because we are staying at camp Julian . Thats not our fault its the governments.And , I'm not attackking you ,i only mean that on exercises the camo has his effect and and yours Will have his effect to . Its the man and not the material

rehcamuhcs welcome to the board. Excuse the idiots, that occasionally post here, I'm sure you have them in the Belgium Army too. We do try to control them though.

You're right its the man not the bloody clothes. Real soldiers can do the job wearing just about anything.

Don't worry about the English either, practice will make it better and it's not like most members of this board are fluent in French   let alone Flemish. BTW we also have a francophone section on the board.

You know what? I thought the pics of the troops in the field, looked good.  Of course they werent invisible, but thats not what they were trying to be at the time anyways.  I'm sure if they were in the bush, especially during fall, they would be tough to spot.

When I first saw the AUSCAM her in Australia, I just  ::), but its the best thing for here, and it comes in a desert version too. Anyways the AUSCAM just blends into the land here, see for yourself at my recent upload of teh cam net tangled in the wheels of  a 105mm hamel Gun.

Cheers,

How do you know the idea came from a woman?  Maybe some fruity guy came up with the idea?  Nonetheless, bad idea.

Seeing how all uniforms turn dirt brown after a few days in the field, I think any real soldier wouldn't really care to start a pissing match over camo patterns.

Hi,
I have read the messages about the Belgian camo pattern in use today. I can say it works well in the environment it's designed for :eek:ur own country, Europe and even in some African countries.
For the ISAF assignments in Afghanistan, Belgian soldiers are equipped with desert camo suits.
For BELUKOS in Kosovo they wear the standard camo.
Look for yourself if it works or not...

The camo pattern used before this one was the "Flecktarn". It is ugly as hell, but very effective too. Some Belgian units still wear the flecktarn today.

Sure the colors used are rather uncommon, but they do the job quite well ! As well in spring, summer and fall (certainly).

Grtz,

Bracchus

I've seen various flecktarn patterns... they've always looked like they'd be quite effective...

Regarding the belgian cam, I note a lack of black? No simulation of shadow... I'd imagine that alone would be enough to bring down the effectiveness considerably.

This can't be any worse than the proposed new U.S. camo that's designed to blend into temperate, arid & urban backgrounds...

One thing that I noticed in some of the pictures  is that the guys arent wearing their combat shirts under their vests, just their t-shirts. They should get it on before they catch a cold...
