Three Swiss soldiers in desert camouflage global search

Developed in 2008, the Swiss desert camouflage pattern appears to be a variation of Swiss woodland camouflage in which black has been replaced by red-brown, brown has been replaced by tan, medium green has been replaced by pale green, and khaki has been replaced by sand yellow. The camouflage pattern is intended for missions abroad in arid terrain. [Image: Swiss Mountain Warfare School/Specops Training Wing (EUSOCOM).]

Swiss Confederation

The Swiss Confederation is a landlocked alpine country in Western Europe. It is bordered by Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein. Switzerland has a long history of neutrality — it has not been at war since 1815 — and hosts many international organizations, including the Red Cross, the World Trade Organization and one of the UN's two European offices.
