This blows battleship grey out of the water - Jack Dyson explains further:
"In the early 1900s, round the time that artists started playing with cubism and form, military tacticians started looking at camouflage. Dazzle or Razzle Dazzle was a style of painting invented by Brit Norman Wilkinson. He used intersecting geometric shapes to break the silhouette of a ship on a horizon. It doesn’t make it invisible, but it does make it harder to see which way it’s going and how fast (which in turn makes it harder to hit)."
