We were creative in our warpaint but that would never happen for real in any combat unit Ive ever trained with. Not gonna happen, negates the entire value of Camouflage, they arent likely flying B52's, they are dressed like infantry. Like JonM said, Extra Training would follow, like having to demonstrate the proper display of Camo and field gear 24/7 for the next 2 week in garrison! Bet they get it right the next time dont you?

that's definitely not paintball. The soldiers in the background are carrying FN 2000s and the one in front has some sort of RPG variant. I'll do a reverse image search.

It appears to be the Peruvian Army Special Forces on parade in Lima.

I was never in the military, but I am sure that got you some special 'attention' from your superiors.
