Can you spot the guerrilla warfare specialists hiding in this image? Too late, you are dead.

I’ve already explained why camouflage color schemes are important in military aviation by publishing an image of two Israeli F-16s barely visible on a desert background.

Obviously, not only planes rely on camouflage for survival in combat.

Look at the following image published by the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) on Flickr and try to spot the guerrilla warfare specialists from the elite Egoz reconnaissance unit blended with the landscape of northern Israel.

You would not notice them if I didn’t tell you that someone was depicted in the photo. But, above all, they would have killed you well before you had spotted them.

Hint: there are two soldiers in the photo.

    The IDF helmet covers give them away – the rest of the camouflage is good, but those helmet covers don’t perform well against this particular rock background.

    I spotted one.

      At the beginning I had spotted only one. But there are two.

    What surprises me is that the most obvious one is wearing a watch and is showing some skin…for me they were the two give aways.
    as for the other one his helmet cover is pretty poorly made in my opinion…that is if what i m looking at is indeed the second soldier

    How can you spot one and miss the other when they are only 5 feet apart. Hehehe..

    I spot them talking to each others.
