Again, another Dennison derived camo pattern of South Vietnamese origin that became popular for use in jungle environments. Mostly associated with [[Southeast Asia]]n countries who still use it today, it was used by the [[Australia]]n and [[New Zealand]] version of [[THEM]] and still today by the French Foreign Legion in French Guyana. Not a bad camo pattern but sadly has become somewhat tacky due to extensive usage by [[spams]] and [[airsoft]] mongs.
 
 
Although this pattern is often seen by many as [[ally]], it must be noted that actually the users of this pattern have lost wars (South [[Vietnam]], Tamil Tigers etc.).
