Military uniforms refer to the standard form of dress worn by troops and other defense forces such as the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force. And each country has a different one. The very first uniforms were in accordance with specifications made based on the soldiers’ homeland.
However, as tactics of the enemy changed, the uniforms were also altered to camouflage and to be less noticeable.Each uniform is tailored to a particular situation and service members can be immediately recognized by their uniform and its specifications. The style and color of these have also transformed greatly over the years. For instance, as of October 1st, 2019, all US Navy sailors will wear the Navy Working Uniform Type III when in port or on shore. This will replace the blue, black and gray Uniform Type 1 which was reported to be heavy and ineffective. This is just a small part of the many alterations made to the armed forces’ uniforms. Before 2002, members either wore the forest tones of the Battle Dress Uniform, or the beige, pale green and earth brown of the Desert Camouflage Uniform. These were discontinued in the 2000s after being introduced in the 1990s.
What we're trying to determine today is whether or not you can identify military uniforms from around the world. Do you think you can pass this test? Let's find out.
