Tiger Stripe - Vietnamese Marine Corps 2nd pattern

The 2nd pattern Vietnamese Marine Corps tiger stripe camouflage was introduced between 1965 and 1967 and replaced the original 1959 design.1 It was comprised of four colors (black, dark green and brown, all with a pea green outline) that were silk-screened on to the fabric.2 Though it was originally designed as a camouflage for the VNMC, it was also worn by their USMC advisors (Co-Vans) as well as by personnel from other units in Vietnam.

1. The 2nd pattern design was referred to as Sea wave or Ocean wave. Richard Johnson named the design Vietnamese Marine Corps Dense (VMD).
