THE CROUCHING TIGER AND HIDDEN DRAGON-AOR2 VS WOODLAND
People might get confused between MARPAT and the AOR2, so before we start this I will attach the photo of 2 fabric comparison, hope this well help.
In the camouflage pattern, US woodland was one of the most efficient in almost all the Jungle area or woodland forest just like the crouching tiger and as of the digital camo became more and more popular among the military in the world, the US has develop a new camo pattern called AOR1 and AOR2, 1 is for the desert base area, 2 is for jungle or woodland area. But is is really hard to acquire these 2 pattern’s of camouflage so I will call it the Hidden Dragon.
Now Lets take a look how these 2 camo pattern conceal itself in the jungle area. The Real jungle in the south east asia is has more light green color compare to the US or Europe woodland forests, I will be using bonnie hats on both woodland camo and the AOR2 in the jungle for further camo testing.
“Try Finding both CAMO in the pic”
“ZOOM IN ON THE SAME PHOTO”
In the shadow Wooland did a good job but we can still tell from the dark brown color, the AOR2 breaks the hat pattern to pieces and hardly visible.
“WITH THE SAME POSITION OF THE HATS, I DECIDE TO WALK NEAR FOR ANOTHER SHOOT”
From the mid distance we can see the bigger difference between the 2 camo patterns, woodland became more visible but aor2 still stays the same concealment effect.
“LOOKING FROM CLOSE UP DISTANCE”
With the close up distance we still cant really see the pattern of the AOR2 compare to woodland camo
“I TOOK ANOTHER SHOOT FROM THE ANGLE IN THE SHADED AREA”
“TRY TO FIND BOTH CAMO”
“IN THE SHADED AREA WITH THE LEAVES COVER”
“IN THE OPEN AREA UNDER THE SUN LIGHT”
“CLOSE UP UNDER THE SUN LIGHT”
The brown and black color of the woodland camo contrast color became higher but the AOR2 changes to Green and yellowish color
” ON THE SOILD”
Finally I put it on the ground and see the both color will turn out, even on the ground the AOR2 still has the upper hand of concealment.
AOR2 has more effective camouflage concealment in the shadow, under the sun and also on the ground aread compare to woodland camo in the jungle of Asia,
but still need to test it during night time and under raining weather.
Looking forward to bring more report on the AOR2 stuff fellas
