That’s one shaggy dog

Recently C Squadron, 1st Armoured Regiment, of Royal Australian Army’s 1st Brigade deployed to Cultana Training Area to conduct live fire field training and squad-level battle runs. The “shaggy dog” camo used by their LAVs I thought was particularly effective in visually breaking up their outline.

FLIR, of course, is always going to be a mother without a Barracuda system.  I know Saab has long-supplied Multispectral Camouflage Systems to the Ozzies for their M1s, but I don’t know about their LAV. If these dogs incorporate MCS, then so much the better.
