Camouflage is a provision for survivability of the troops, weaponry and military equipment.
Camouflage is a package of arrangements, technical measures and practical deeds aimed at confusing the enemy.
- misleading information.
Concealing is lowering observability of a military object for some ranges or throughout all ranges of radio wave length.
Knockoff, decoys is a full or partial simulation of identification features of weaponry, military equipment, command, combat and other groups.
Baiting is an intentional demonstration of definite activities of command units and troops by apportioned forces.
Disinformation is spreading false information about the status of forces, weaponry, military equipment and military commanders’ intentions.
RUSBAL is engaged in the development, testing, production and sale of camouflage means.
The effectiveness of camouflage as a means of deceiving the enemy has been proved during all military conflicts. One of the most prominent is the episode with the famous Trojan horse created by Odysseus during the war between the Trojans and the Danaos in XIII-XII B.C.
All kinds of camouflage were widely used during World War II.
At the beginning of World War II, the active use of fake technology to deceive the enemy began. In the USSR, enterprises were built that made thousands of inflatable and plywood models of tanks and aircraft.
Camouflage had been invented long before weapons, wars and people appeared. Camouflage has always existed in the wild. The only thing required for creating a perfect camouflage is just to look around. The most inventive camouflage creators are insects, fishes and animals. They often resort to concealing, knockoff and baiting. The ability to use misleading information belongs exclusively to people.Only wildlife uses a combination of concealing and knockoff. Sometimes it is very hard to distinguish them from one another.

The picture illustrates the combination of concealing and knockoff in one item designed by SPE «RUSBAL».
SPE «RUSBAL» appeared in the market of camouflage means in 1996, three years after its establishment. During the period of production activity of SPE «RUSBAL» a big amount of research and development work has been carried out, most part of it in an initiative manner.
From 1996 to 2020 the range of developed products came up to 80 items of knockoff and 6 items of concealing. SPE «RUSBAL» has worked out several times as many camouflage means as other companies did, beginning from 1945 until now.
The range of means developed by SPE «RUSBAL» makes it possible for the military forces to implement the main principle of camouflage:
«Camouflage must be done in an ongoing way and in a variety of ways.»
The range of camouflage means is similar to the number of playing cards in a pack of a camouflage specialist: the more cards he has - the more interesting the game is and the easier is to deceive the enemy. The task for SPE «RUSBAL» is to constantly increase the number of cards in this pack.
