In other sources as well a A-NET I have noticed the US Navy USMC appears to be changing from the low viz schemes. I saw a shot on CBS news the other night of a carrier in the gulf, the F-14's were painted up in squadron colors and looked great. Which do you like ? I love this shot of the 18 thanks Mr. Fulber!

Just a clarification.. the USMC may be located under the Department of the Navy, but they're NOT part of the Navy! There is a very big distinction. You're sure to piss off any Marine if you label them as being part of the Navy... just an FYI.

I agree on the low viz , never did understand that. Maybe someone can expalin the logic of low viz.
Even if you're radar picks a target up say 10 miles out, it is much harder to spot a grey dot against the horizon than it is a bright red or orange dot. Grey also reflects less light making it harder to see.
