New Toad Camo by P1G-TAC!

Life in the wild is merciless and full of danger. For millions of years of life on Earth, evolution and natural selection have left on our planet only the most powerful and adapted to the natural selection of animal species. One of these animals in our area is the Common Toad. This species of amphibians has in nature many natural enemies, however, at the same time, the population of the Common Toad does not decrease. The only way to protect against predators that the Toad can use is a patronizing masking color that makes it virtually invisible in its natural habitat. Millions of years of evolution have done their job as well as possible.

New Toad Camo by P1G-TAC!

In 2012, the Ukrainian military field brand P1G-Tac began creating its new universal camouflage, based on the study of various natural patronizing masking patterns of animals. Camouflage was developed for field use in the steppe, forest-steppe and wooded areas of Ukraine in the warm season. In the process of creation, modern software was used, allowing to simulate various conditions for lighting a camouflage object and the surrounding landscape in three-dimensional space in real time. For 3D camouflage modeling and virtual tests, video and photo materials of landscapes typical of various regions of Ukraine were collected. Virtual testing and finalization of the final design and camouflage colors lasted for almost a year. Also, when creating a camouflage pattern, the conditions of mass production of clothing and field equipment were also taken into account.

As a result of this work, an ideal camouflage for the territory of Ukraine, called the “Toad,” which successfully camouflages a human figure in almost all landscapes with vegetation and at any distance of observation, has turned out.

Camouflage “Toad” is an adaptive camouflage, the design of which is maximally saturated with the color gamut of potential places of use. As a result of this, getting into the color wave in the range from the background object to the observer, the background colors begin to appear on the camouflage, which ideally camouflages a person against the background of the environment. With the help of such inherent properties of the picture, "Toad" easily adapts to various conditions of vegetation and landscape, camouflages and does not unmask the human figure.

Whatever form the field clothing would be and whatever equipment would be worn over the clothes - the saturated pattern of the “Toad” turns a dressed and equipped person into a single, well-camouflaged object.

A lot of positive feedback from the operators of special units confidently confirms the successful work of camouflage "Toads" in real combat conditions.

    There was already information about the testing of a new sample of the field form, they promised to provide intelligence in the first place, then the rest. Let's hope that this domestic development will be in the army.

    In the photo and video - a spring forest when bright colors prevail. After June, it gets dark. Then you have to watch "Toad". There is a "swamp version" of the TOAD - it is preferable.

      Have you seen this camouflage in real life, or only in photographs? Computers do not accurately reproduce colors.

        Yes, these cars are not accurate, but the dates when these pictures were presented are known. Sun-scorched grass and contrast are also visible. This is the beginning of "brilliant green". Then, all summer long, the sun beats down so that in the steppe zone of Ukraine "Afghan" is better than "oak", and in the wooded zone the leaf darkens and turns brown. They also have such a "Toad". Apparently we went along the British path.

          Exact match is still impossible to achieve. The silhouette blurs, and this is important. The picture is not memorable, and this is the second big plus.

        Rather, something else is true that it’s not computers but monitors (if of course you need to calibrate prof Monik, you still need to be able to calibrate it .... .... I’m sitting on the phone myself and most people who are associated with design prefer CRT technology), and even any pro in photo mode will say that the figure is inferior to the film, and it too, as they say, is not without sin.

      Maybe it will take off. In Ukraine, during the warmer months, there are more sunny days, the sun shines brighter, there are few forests and they are sparse, mainly a forest-steppe. In the forest-steppe transitions in color and light are not smooth as in the forest, but sharp and contrasting. It is more interesting how much it gets dark when wet in the rain.

        There are few forests, look at the geographical map and the scale is better, and you will change your mind, Vinnitsa region 10-15 km, then a path waiting for the cart and again 10 km, and to the western borders and Belarus in general there are forests of forest forests. We also do not have any brakes.

    The article as an advertising booklet, IMHO, and photos were taken in conditions suitable for camouflage, a bright spring forest, but now I would like to look at this camouflage in the forest. In my opinion, the suit is somewhat reminiscent of the ATACS

      This is a reprint of the article from the manufacturer’s website.
      Well done guys: started by selling foreign products
      and grew up to create their own production under its own brand.

      By the way, the PiG-Tac brand motto is: "And one in the field is a warrior"
      The manufacturer is sure that everyone who uses their products
      will be able to challenge even the most difficult environmental conditions and emerge victorious.

    which successfully camouflages a human figure in almost all landscapes
    - not at all. The presented photos show the use of camouflage among the vegetation, in the shade.
    I would like to see the work of camouflage on the background of sand, burnt yellow grass, in the city, in the forest in early spring or autumn.
    There is no camouflage that is suitable for significant times of the year and landscapes - even snipers (which a herd of dogs ate on this issue) prefer to sew their wraps not only for a specific time of the year, but even for a specific area where the task will be performed!

    "Toad" masks well among foliage, but is unlikely to work on a yellow background, and especially on a brown one, in the forest in early spring - while the usual brown flecktarn in a pine forest or early spring works just fine, while everything is green camouflages are visible hundreds of meters away as bright spots.

    I bought myself a Winter Mount Track Suit from this manufacturer, I was seduced by a super duper, the material turned out to be unsuitable even for light hiking soaking if it gets wet for a very long time and it’s in motion. The idea is to cut good but the material is avno. Many personally felt their goods felt like sometimes even the Survival Corps rests.

    I saw fighters in such camouflage in the Crimean mountains. Full unmasking. Sandy camouflage or desert hides better on the ground.

    I don’t think that one universal camouflage is suitable for the whole territory of Ukraine. In general, you need to experience all this in military units, and there you will see how effective and versatile it is.

    Something this toad on the concept of a "birch" is similar - light colors.
    IMHO contrasting, like "Dubok", it will be better for the forest. And for the steppe zone, it is still better to add more neutral tones - light brown and gray-brown. Not all year round, our summer is green, but in spring and autumn the "toad" has a rest;) If they are planning to create a professional army, then we need to make tolerable kamki. "Theater starts with a coat rack."

      And what is not clear to ask in the computer which forests and terrain are mainly in Ukraine and the computer will give one or more colors. And you need to make a double like a gansew with white (you are a collar).

    Honestly, I have never lost an object (a potential target!) And this despite the fact that the figure, and it was clearly not filmed with super professional equipment, when using the latter, the "target" was probably even more clearly visible, True! there is one moment I have an increased color-light perception - I feel good "false" - deception, so it's difficult for me to judge, the only thing pleases is that at least someone is doing something, and in general without destroying the silhouette not only "graphically" but also "geometrically" "- scraps, mesh, etc., it is difficult to achieve complete" merging "with the surrounding area.

    All this, of course, is good, but the video is not very informative. It was necessary to show the old suits next to the new ones for comparison. And then maybe "if you don't see the difference, why pay more?"

      ..and a bunch of options how to sleep !! A normal fighter is not only in camouflage, but also with his head !! Take an interest in tyrnet as the guys of the NATO JNA drove the nose !! How NATO destroyed tanks from a wrecked car and pipes ... In general, NO BRAINS are not a fighter !!!
      As for the products of "Tactical Pigs" - I bought it just now, I wear it. Fabric class !! One of the best I've ever worn. But the design is not finalized, "heaped up" but clings wherever possible and for what it is possible. There are all sorts of pockets, the purpose of some is not clear to me ... but I AM GLAD THAT WE HAVE A FIRM THAT REALLY WORKS, and not tyrit technology or loot ...
      In general: Thanks to the guys from pig tac !!
