On Friday, the United States Space Force released an image of their new uniforms on Twitter.
The image shows a Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) for a four-star general in a woodland camouflage pattern, with a matching camo nametape.

However, many people were confused as to why the Space Force would use uniforms designed to blend in on earth.
Here’s some of what people were saying:
You gonna be hiding behind a fucking space bush or something? https://t.co/XLJZWzhyhI

Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?

Clearly you’ve never been to Endor

Just out of curiosity…
If enlisted members of the Air Force are "Airmen," are enlisted members of the Space Force "Spacemen?"
Also, if you get a service academy, will there be "Space Cadets?"

Will this camouflage work in space? Also, why not call it Starfleet. Missed opportunity.

Gotta say, I'm a little disappointed with the camo. And considering your leader, this is probably more on point. pic.twitter.com/aw4q9KT1MP

This might be the dumbest thing I ever heard.
And I'm getting old, so I've had time to hear some very dumb things.

They are eerily similar to our Earth Force uniforms.

So exactly who is making bank from all this clownish bullshit?

In space no one can see your camouflage

My dog is better camouflaged for space than whatever that is. If you're looking to save the tax payers money this was only $3 in Walmart's infants section. pic.twitter.com/MYPec5hMUC

These uniforms will be very handy when they invade the Camo Nebula. https://t.co/UqkDb4Dmn9
