Smart call on the Space Force camouflage.
Never know when you’re gonna have to blend into a space jungle or hide behind a space bush.
IT’S NOT LIKE SPACE IS A BLACK VACUUM WHERE NO ONE EVER GOES OUTSIDE OR ANYTHING. https://t.co/jbIR4ZlHs5

I know this is hard to understand, but on the left there is a picture of camouflage and on the right there is a picture of space. Study these carefully until you can see the difference. pic.twitter.com/7HhAeHRyrm

Now we’re talking. Let’s get that sweet military contract. Do you want to underbid me this time? Or shall I underbid you? #spacefarce pic.twitter.com/7i3dQnlhsk

This would explain why the newly constituted US Space Force will have a camouflage uniform.
The alternative, that they have discovered space jungles, is too absurd to consider.
Needless to say, Twitter is going insane over this:
The U.S. Space Force on Friday offered a first look at its utility uniforms with its service name tape, unleashing a torrent of mockery over the decision to use a camouflage pattern for a military branch associated with the dark endlessness of the universe.
“Space Force” soon began trending on Twitter — mostly not because of excitement about the uniform.
“Smart call on the Space Force camouflage,” one Twitter user wrote. “Never know when you’re gonna have to blend into a space jungle or hide behind a space bush.”
“I’m dressed better for Space Force than this and I’m wearing $10 leggings from Target,” said one woman, who shared a photo of leggings with images of cats floating in space.
Another person posted a picture of a camouflage pattern next to a completely black box. “Study these carefully until you can see the difference,” he wrote in response to the Space Force.
The reality, as it usually is, is actually a bit more prosaic.
Their new uniform is, except for the various badges, reuses the existing camouflage uniforms, because, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Why spend all that money on a new uniform?
Then again, why spend all that money on standing up the cockamamie idea of a Space Force in the first place?
