Australian Disruptive Pattern Camouflage
Commonwealth of Australia

Australian Disruptive Pattern Camouflage was developed following aerial photographs of the Australian terrain to determine which colours and patterns would be most suitable for camouflage uniforms. The first uniforms using the disruptive pattern camouflage were trialled in 1983. The final production version was introduced in 1986.

The five-colour camouflage pattern consists of a greenish sand-coloured background with randomly arranged spots of rust-brown, red-brown, black-green and medium green overlaid. The pattern works in areas from arid bushland through to tropical jungle, all over Australia.
