New ‘Multitarn’ camouflage for the Bundeswehr

A couple of days ago we presented the first English-language news about the new snow and multi-terrain camouflage patterns being adopted by the German Bundeswehr.  Today, we are able to bring you some further details about the so-called ‘Multitarn’ multi-terrain pattern.

First, it appears that the pattern is being called ‘Multitarn’ – thereby connecting the ‘multi’-terrain colours of the pattern with the legacy ‘tarn’ (camouflage) of the ‘Flecktarn’ pattern geometry it is based on.

The development of the Multitarn pattern was initially driven by a request from the German special forces, and the new pattern will be made available to them first.  In the longer term,  other units will also receive the new pattern.  Equipping all in-theatre soldiers with a common camouflage uniform pattern makes obvious sense, as it is then more difficult for the enemy to specifically target special forces troops due to their different uniform.

New Camouflage Patterns for the Bundeswehr

According to an article published today on the German-language ‘Strategie & Technik’ blog, the German Armed Forces have had two new camouflage patterns added to their Flecktarn repertoire – a new 3-color snow camo pattern and a 6-color ‘multi-terrain’ pattern.

‘Strategie & Technik’ reports that the patterns were developed by the Wehrwissenschaftliche Institut für Werk- und Betriebsstoffe der Bundeswehr (WIWeB) and that research and development efforts on the new patterns began as far back as 2012.

Based on the well-known Flecktarn pattern geometry, the snow camo pattern uses white, grey and dark green colors; whereas the multi-terrain pattern uses light green, dark green, brown, beige, grey and off-white colors.
