Camouflage?

Post by dadlamassu » Fri May 25, 2018 5:28 pm

One of the lessons of camouflage and concealement is to disguise yourself and avoid obvious cover.

At first sight this looks like an inoffensive PionierPanzer III but it is a StuG III - so it passes the "Disguise" test.

The crew have chosen to hide behind a tree, the only tree, a very small lonely tree - so they fail the "Avoid obvious cover" test

I am not sure a tree like that counts as cover!

Am I the only the only one reminded of the Monty Python How Not to be Seen sketch?
