German Camo – German Military Surplus

by German Military Surplus Collector

German CamoGerman camo is also known as German camouflage. German camouflage is the process where men and equipment are concealed both on and off the battlefield.

German Camo is used to disguise the appearance of ships, airplanes, troop’s equipment and structures.

The German Camo has been used since World War 1.

The camouflage when well applied transforms shapes from rectangular to the indeterminate makes them unrecognizable.

The entire process of German camo required attention of the vegetation of the area.

With the aid of German camo, previously obvious objects lost their definition and blended into the background.

German camo helped to conceal things obvious to the trained eye in battle reducing the immediate effect of color of uniforms, blending them to the background.

German Camo Worn By The German Military During World War 1 and 2

German Camo uniforms were considered vital for snipers. Camouflage face masks were worn to break out the shiny surface of a soldiers face.

German Camo uniforms were used by blending them with the background. Camouflage clothing included the camo jacket used by the parachute troops.

The camo jacket was green in color about the length of the jump suit.

The pullover style smock was worn which had reversible with green summer on one side and brown autumn on the other side.

German Camo War Strategies

To camo the ships, the Germans painted jokes on the sides of the ships.

Ships bearing jokes would not be regarded as Germans.

Bunkers had pattern painted camouflage, textured concrete and paint or structural disguises to make them appear like civilian structures.

Natural camo used by the Germans included taking advantage of the natural cover, taking position under trees,shrubs,grain stacks or group of houses.

Nets were woven with various patterns of colored cloth to conceal storage facilities and gun positions

The German Camo Colors

The German Camo colors were supplied in concentrated paste form ranging from grass to dark green.

The paste would then be thinned with gasoline or water. This was to be applied to the troops as per the terrain and climate.

The red lead primer was applied to every German armored vehicle during the building and painting process. Cream color was used on the interior of all tanks.

Red brown, dark yellow and white wash were also used.

During winter the Germans used chalk, white wash or white paint on their vehicles since it was an effective for winter camouflage.

Disruptive patterns in olive green, very dark green and even purple colors were used to camo the German aircrafts.

German Camo is a modern phenomenon that has taken a number of advances in military technology to make it essential.

Many of the German camo practices of the world war still retain their relevance today.
