Tiger Stripe CAMO Patterns

The term "tiger stripe" refers to the family of camouflage designs developed in Southeast Asia (particularly the Republic of Vietnam) during the 1960s that were derived from the earlier French tenue du leopard or lizard design of the 1950s. The term additionally refers to the multitude of derivatives produced by a number of countries well into the present period. French camouflage uniforms were in fact supplied to Colonial Vietnamese personnel during the First Indochina War. The Vietnamese referred to these different designs as Sọc Răn (striped uniform). The term "tiger stripe" (or "tiger pattern") no doubt refers to the rudimentary similarity between the narrow brush strokes of the camouflage design and the naturally occurring hide design of the genus Panthera tigris.
