In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we are introducing new camouflage uniform options for the all factions. Here we’ll take a look at the new possibilities for the American soldiers! So when you need to set an ambush for that pesky T-20 komsomolets that has been harassing your advance? Grab a new uniform to blend in!
Just as the Hunter and Forest pattern introduced in the Churchill update and the Bauer update respectively, it will come in three colours and help Infantrymen, Paratroopers and Recons not to be seen. When playing together with friends grab identical uniforms so when you operate as a squad ingame you are also easy to identify as a group.
These new camouflage comes in three color schemes: Nagual Jade, Nagual Caro and Nagual Jungle, giving you the option to blend in, in all kinds of terrain and vegetation.
New INFANTRY Uniforms
The first time we added some of these experimental camouflage options we asked Reto.Mato why he chose exactly these, and asked him to elaborate a bit of the thought process.
Seeing as how the Americans made all this interesting, experimental camouflage in the early years of WW2, we thought it would be really cool to use them in our game. Now, we know not all of these saw actual battle, but they were designed and extensively field tested so they are authentic in that respect. It’s also a great way to add some balance between factions in terms of the variety of available camouflage.

New PARATROOPER Uniforms
Nagual? What does that mean?
The new camouflage patterns are named “Nagual“. Nagual comes from Mesoamerican culture and folk religion. It is a human that is known to be able to transform into the shape of a jaguar. The pattern looks jaguar-like hence the reference in the name. This is one of a large number of experimental camouflage patterns the US worked on in the 1930s and early in World War 2. A lot of these were based on animals and how they blend into their natural environments.
