Just weeks after it kicked off, Trump’s Space Force has been subjected to online mockery after unveiling the design for the new ‘camo’ space uniforms.
While it’s hard to know how exactly space uniforms should look like to best serve their purpose in space, one thing is for sure – there isn’t much greenery and shrubbery floating around up there.
After the Space Force shared their new design with the world on Twitter, critics were quick to point out that this isn’t how camouflage works and that pitch-black suits would be better for use in space than standard green and brown army camo.
“How many trees are you expecting to find in space?” one person responded to the photo of the new uniform design.
“Since when is space camouflage color? Shouldn’t the uniforms be black with sequins scattered on them so they twinkle?” another one questioned.
One person wrote: “#SpaceForce uniforms should be no gloss black. That way when you’re lost in space, you’ll be harder to find. If someone is shooting at you … harder to see.”
After a wave of ridicule, the USSF responded and revealed they’re using the current Army uniform design to save on costs of producing a new one.
“USSF is utilizing current Army/Air Force uniforms, saving costs of designing/producing a new one,” they wrote.
“Members will look like their joint counterparts they’ll be working with, on the ground.”
