Army snipers played hide-and-seek to test new camouflaged ghillie suits for next-level combat
- US Army snipers recently conducted visual testing for new camouflaged ghillie suits, which are expected to enhance soldier lethality.
- Testing involved an activity similar to the classic game of hide-and-seek, as snipers wearing the Improved Ghillie System prototypes hid in varied environments while other snipers attempted to spot them.
The camouflaged ghillie suits worn by US snipers are vital tools that enhance concealment, offering greater survivability and lethality, but these suits are in desperate need of an upgrade.
The US Army is currently testing new camouflaged ghillie suits to better protect soldiers and make them deadlier to enemies.Trained snipers from across the service recently gathered at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida to conduct visual testing for several prototypes, an important preliminary evaluation, the Army revealed earlier this month.
