The type of camoflauge that involves the stripes and such was called dazzle camoflauge..the type of painting on this corvette is not dazzle but more like fractal or surface break up..just like those urban combat uniforms.

BTW, that ship dispicted is from WW II..and dazzle camoflauge did work, otherwise they wouldnt have continued to use it. it was when radar was introduced in WW II that trying to distract a human eye by illusion no longer worked...the radar would show the ship as a blip and all

I could scan a picture of the zebra cammo, i think thats the cammo you mean, its nothing like that one And that zebra cammo is real confusing, it looks weird.

Its what i call it, dazzle or what it was named

Actually the purpose of that camoflage technique was to make it difficult for a U-boat's crew to gauge the speed and even direction of travel through a periscope, rather than actually hiding the ship.

Just wanted to try and sound smart .
