The first standard issue German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) camo pattern is based on the pattern most associated with the Waffen SS. The proper name of this new German pattern is Flecktarn, though it is commonly misused as 'Flecktar' in the US (note the missing 'n' on the end). Unlike the bolder WWII versions the new camo uses 'standard' colours of three greens, black, and brown for a summer only coloration. Trials of this pattern took place in the early 1980s with a slow phase in during the very late 1980s and early 1990s. Earlier products were made with brass snaps, later with black plastic.
