Prairie Toad or Jaba stepova - adaptive camouflage for use in the steppe zone of Ukraine, as well as in the areas of semideserts and deserts, savannas and prairies.
Over millions of years of evolution of life on Earth and the natural selection left on our planet only the strongest and most adapted to the natural selection animal species. One of these animals in our area is the common toad. This amphibian has many enemies in nature but it does not decrease its population.
The only way to protect against predators which may use a toad is a protective mask color which makes it almost invisible in their natural habitat. Millions of years of evolution did a perfect job.
In 2012, the Ukrainian brand P1G-Tac engaged in the creation of its new own universal camouflage, basing the study of various natural protective masking patterns of animals. Camouflage was developed for field use in the steppe and woodland ares of Ukraine in the warmer months.
In the process of creation of camouflage was used a modern software that allows you to simulate different lighting conditions of camouflage object and the surrounding landscape in three dimensions in real time. For 3D-modeling of camouflage and virtual tests were collected videos and photographs of landscapes typical for different regions of Ukraine.
Virtual testing and enhancement of the final pattern and colors of camouflage lasted nearly a year. In addition, when we created this camouflage pattern we counted towards mass production of clothing and field gear.
As a result of this work we got the perfect camouflage for the territory of Ukraine, known as "Toad", which successfully camouflages human figure almost all the landscapes that have vegetation and at any observation distance.
Camouflage "Toad" - an adaptive camouflage pattern that filled by colors of potential places of use. As a result, when "Toad" camouflage get in range from the background object to an observer it begin to appear background colors of the object on a camouflage pattern. This phenomenon helps to camouflage human body at background environment.
Using these inherent properties of the pattern "Toad" camouflage is easily adaptable to different conditions of vegetation and landscape, camouflages and not unmask the human figure.
Whatever the field clothing and equipment no matter what was put on top of the clothes saturated pattern of "Toad" camouflage transforms dressed and equipped man in a single, well-camouflaged object.
A lot of positive feedback from the operators of the special units of the CIS countries confirm the successful work of "Toad" camouflage in real combat conditions.
