Thread: Camouflage In Space?

    Camouflage In Space?

    First- is it really necessary? Second, would't black be better?

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51160547



    The US Space Force has defended its newly unveiled camouflage uniforms after they were roundly mocked on social media.

    The force, officially launched by US President Donald Trump last month, posted a picture of the uniform to its Twitter account.

    The uniform in the picture has a woodland camouflage design with badges embroidered on the arm and chest.

    Reacting to the uniform, many critics had the same question: "Camo in space?"

    One Twitter user asked: "Have they never seen space before?"

    Another illustrated the difference between space and camouflage, which is designed to help military personnel blend in with their surroundings.



    The force explained its rationale in a tweeted response. It said it was "utilising current Army/Air Force uniforms" and "saving costs of designing/producing a new one" in doing so.

    "Members will look like their joint counterparts they'll be working with, on the ground,"
    the force added in the tweet.

    Flanked by US troops, Mr Trump officially launched the force at an army base near Washington in December last year.

    Mr Trump said the force would help the US military "deter aggression" in what he called "the world's newest war-fighting domain".

    But the new military service, overseen by the US Air Force, is not intended to put troops into orbit.

    Rather, it will protect US assets such as the hundreds of satellites used for communication and surveillance.

    US Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett said the Space Force would comprise about 16,000 air force and civilian personnel.

    The Trump administration has allocated $40m (£34m) to fund the force in its first year.

    I hear they are using already available uniforms as a money saving measure.

    Yes.
    It took at about a decade before the Air Force completed a switch to its own uniforms.

    The only camouflage we need in space is camouflage to hide us from the aliens.

    Perhaps, but it would be nice to at least try to get the jump on them.

    The uniform should be moon colored, since that's where most of the troops will be stationed.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Maybe the dress uniforms will look more like this:
