    Ade,

    Reminds me of the 'dazzel' cam on ships? Is it the same idea?

    Hi Jock, yes, it is the same idea. It does break up the outline of the vehicle quite well.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    Have you seen the old Chieftans etc from the Berlin Bde, they had something similar for built up areas?

    Hi Jock, yes I have. They had a unique "Urban camo" in grey. I saw one painted up like that at Duxford, but I didn't take a pic.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    Last one I seen was near Tidworth, forgotten the name of the place just North where they were all waiting to be scrapped together with all the old Op Granby stuff. (just remembered Luggershall?).
