Thank you :D

Indeed, it is a very interesting comparison to do with the German Army. By the way, for the ones who still do not know, the German copied the Swiss Camouflage during the 30's !!!

Cheers,
:D

Sorry not true.... the Germans copied the Italian Modello 1929 Mimetico.
Look at the Italian section ,heavy debate there.
Cheers
