They are Hizack, not Zaku. Also, Zaku are ground type MS. The green color is standard military color and also function as camo

it's meant to be evocative of some german tank camos, the glossiness is probably just a stylistic choice or some limitation of working with watercolors

It's not even a camouflage thing, desu. The Zaku I and II, even their Space Types, used drab green as its color scheme, as did many Zeon Warships.

The fact that it worked well as woodland camo was pretty much an unintended side effect from what I can tell. There were some Zakus with proper camouflage in supplementary materials, but never in the any of the main series (probably because animating camouflage patterns would be a bitch unless you did it in 3d).

Does a GM Sniper with camouflage netting also count?

I ways thought of the green paint vehicles and the purple tint zeon helmet glass were meant to give off a purple skin alien/demon vibes. The original showing being from SR era and all.

the purpose of camouflage is to break up your silhouette against the background, even battleships had camouflage when visual combat was the main form of warfare

I think it can work on the right model, like the Gouf. Definitely a matter of personal taste though.
>>
>>20798883
very dank for static shots and models, probably not able to be animated in 2d
>>
>>20798883
>>20798885
I meant tactically, not just aesthetics. Would it actually work?
>>
>>20798898
ah, I see.
From what I know it fell out of use mostly due to more effective long range detection, and gundam doesn't really do long range sensors for a variety of reasons so it should in theory work well.
>>
>>20798906
Yeah, that’s what I thought too, and I wanted to see if anybody else agreed or disagreed or if they knew something I didn’t that would make a difference.
And now I want you to imagine a horde of zebra striped mobile suits of various models floating in space, not actually that close together, but because of the angle and distance they seem to all blur together, and the only way to distinguish them is by their cameras/eyes.
>>20798890
Yeah, I don’t see this happening in an actual show, but it’s cool to think about.
>>
>>20798890
with modern digital anime it's really not that hard to apply complex texture work to an otherwise 2d image

>>20797056
Gouf are "Ground Zaku " and they have blue as far as i can tell, you can easy spot Gouf from afar. I think majority of green colored MS served as stealthy camo units in some extend. Like how majority of Vietcong used green. They are obviously multipurposes, but the green is there for a reason. Military green is dark and bland color, by default any military unit with green is a camo unit.
