Chinese Digi-Camo

Since we’re talking China, and I love vehicle camouflage patterns, I had to put up this shot of Chinese APCs (or SP howitzers?) with digital camouflage. Its the first shot I’ve come across of a vehicle with digital camouflage. As my colleague Christian Lowe writes over at Kit Up, it’s from the Chinese military parade in October last year where apparently all vehicles sported the digital pattern.

  1. Now the communist leaders can roll over their dissidents in style.

  2. The exact name is the ZBD2000 and I think it would be similar to the Styker MGS. Its a 105 equivalent. I've seen it in blue digital also.

  3. I wonder what else the Chinese are copying from us? F22 specs, war plans, missile techng. All the stuff that we are supposed to be protecting but are too blind to realize that China IS NOT our friend and IS waging a self proclaimed cyberwar against the US. Hell they've already hacked our financial system.

    Smart.
    But they forgot the wheels.
    Four evenly spaced round shapes with white rimming.
    Just shouts, I am here!

  5. Brits did it a long time ago with their Berlin Brigade,

    I love the vehicle commander with the super high-speed digi-camo, with the huge red "shoot me" flag on his shoulder.

  8. I'm much more concerned about that blossoming mushroom cloud over bejing (frame left) and the fact that soldier boy (forground) apparently hasnt noticed ? Its going to take ALOT of digital camo to cover up that crater :P

  9. On SpeedTV's Bullrun, there a Lambo w/digi camo and its driven by 2 asians

  10. Instead of red meatballs (Japan) they have red squares to shoot at!!!
    An A-10 will still se the infrared signature from the exhaust and send it
    to the scrap yard.

  11. Anyone else see the weird explosion thingy on the left of the screen.

  12. The US experimented with digital vehicle camo in Europe in the '80s…

  13. That's actually not digital camo. They're actually making their vehicles out of LEGOs now.

    hey, LOGANS' right, since all dem little plastic things are made there, damn I would like to see the LEGO-F22…

  15. Seriously, China outnumbers soldiers elsewhere digi-camo or not…

  16. I’m impressed, I must say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the problem is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very pleased that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing referring to this.

  17. Actually the US were the first to use digicam on tanks, back in the 70’s in Europe. But the Canadians were the first to take that concept and apply it to their uniforms.
