'Soldier 2000' camouflage
Republic of South Africa

South Africa has many types of terrain, ranging from the lush green forests of the Natal midlands to the arid, semi-desert areas of the Northern Cape. The 'Soldier 2000' camouflage pattern, developed by theCouncil for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), is designed to be a 'universal' pattern, effective in all types of terrain, in different seasons, both by day and by night.

It is a five-colour camouflage, comprising leaf-shaped patches and small flecks of medium green, dark green, pale green and dark brown on an earth brown background. is grateful to Riaan Rossouw, for his invaluable contributions to this article.
