FAQs

Is Vegetato a digital pattern?

Yes. Similar to CADPAT, MARPAT, and MultiCam, Vegetato camouflage is a digital pattern. However, a common misconception about digital patterns is that they are achieved by pixelating. To the contrary, digital patterns are computer- and algorithm-based.

Which camouflage did Vegetato replace?

Vegetato replaced mimetico Roma 90, the pattern that was first used in 1990. Mimetico Roma 90 was influenced by the United States’ m81 woodland pattern, but modified for Mediterranean landscapes.

When was Vegetato introduced?

Vegetato was introduced in 2004. It soon became the active camouflage for Italy’s armed forces.

What type of camouflage is Vegetato?

Vegetato is a fractal multiscale pattern. Fractal multiscaling means the pattern repeats itself on small and large scales, thereby providing concealment at distances near and far (since objects with different fractal dimensions are more difficult for human eyes to detect).

Who uses Vegetato?

Vegetato woodland is currently the active camouflage pattern for the Italian army (Esercito). That nation’s Navy Special Forces (COMSUBIN) use the same Vegetato pattern but with a desert and blue variation.
