I was thinking should't they be in blue or something...

    To break up thier outline, making them harder to spot with the naked eye. Green is a standard color for most regions in which the United States operates in, but aircraft are usually exempt from the practice of camouflage. Most military aircraft are gray, while ground vehicles get a more refined camouflage treatment.

    eco-friendly is the main captivating coloration to the attention. that is not likely on the subject of the guy decision. that is nature's maximum plentiful coloration. Human eye notices eco-friendly hue alterations the least while placed against the eco-friendly background. So, for aerial photographs or reconnaissance photographs, a eco-friendly camouflage would stand out the least, in spite of the reality that at present, with some of the best technologies it probably would not remember anymore. inspite of the shown fact that, between the previous college recommendations, eco-friendly/dark eco-friendly camouflage, comparable to random nature leaf trend (as seen from distance) remains the popular camouflage coloration

    so that when they are on ground it is easy to keep it invisible to the observer in the sky. If they are not painted in camouflage during the attack or aerial surveillance of the enemy, they can have right count and number of aircraft stationed in that base or airfield.

    So that they are not spotted by enemy gun planes. They would camouflage in green for forest conditions. This would help them hide in the green background. Good also for ambush attacks.

    To blend in.

    It is not always green. Sometimes they paint for snow regions, or desert sand colors.
