Military camouflage is the use of camouflage by a military force to protect personnel and equipment from visual observation by enemy forces. In practice, this means applying color and materials to military equipment of all kinds, including vehicles, ships, aircraft, gun positions and battledress, either to conceal them from visual observation, or to make them appear as something else.

Although these disguised guys may look ugly, camouflage is actually an efficient way to protect them from enemy’s attack and sometimes can make them slip away from under the enemy's noses.

Here are the military camouflages from around the world. Which one do you think is the most fraudulent?
