052-191-1362 (SL1) - Camouflage Equipment

Standards: Camouflage equipment so all shiny parts are concealed, all remaining parts of the equipment are covered in irregular patterns, and outlines blend with predominant terrain background in the area.

or natural camouflage material (such as
burlap, sandbags, and cloth strips). 
You are wearing a battle dress
uniform (BDU).

Special Conditions: When this task is to be performed in a nuclear,
biological, and chemical (NBC) environment,
