DAZZLE SHIP CAMOUFLAGE
Dazzle Camouflage was first used in the First World War led by the painter Abbot Handerson Thayer. This was a military camouflage developed to protect warships under threat from torpedo attacks.
Disruptive coloration is a technique used in nature to distract predators. Zebras use their stripes to break up the shape of the animal and confuse the predator. This system was also used by the Dazzle Camouflage movement, with complex broken lines painted on ships so that the enemy submarines could not accurately judge their distance, directions and size.
