It looks like the UK are painting their subs funny colours again:

makes sence, after all, black isn't the best color for flying around at night either.

looks quite nice actaully, i can see why they've done it!!

'visually' it seems that it would harder to spot underwater than the default black colour subs.

if the new colour scheme of HMS Torbay works well, then maybe its a good idea all british subs have this colour in the future, nice post

I have a question about submarine camo.

Deepsea fish use bio-lumenescence and photo cells of some sort.
The fish that use photo cells use light to blend in to their surroundings, so from below looking up at the fish, they use a bluish light on their stomachs to match the sun filtering down from the surface and from above looking down on the fish its dorsal section turns dark to match the depths below them.

Has any navy researched this for there subs???

Maybe I should have started this as a thread!! lol

More pics:

Looks kinda cool, and I bet it's harder to see than black, especially in shallower water.
