Republic of Maldives
The Republic of Maldives (ދިވެހިރާއްޖޭގެ ޖުމްހޫރިއްޔާ) is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. The Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) were formed in 2006 after the National Security Service was divided into branches for domestic law enforcement (Maldives Police Service) and national defence. The MNDF is somewhat unique in having the following primary branches: Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Special Forces, and the Service Corps.
- The MNDF wear a leaf camouflage pattern similar to some produced in Thailand, having black, brown & olive green leaf shapes on a pale green background.
- A unique urban camouflage pattern with a blue colorway is worn by the Emergency Reponse Team of the National Police Service.
- Recently the Special Forces Team of the MNDF has adopted a Multicam combat uniform.
- Circa 2015, the MNDF adopted a new pixelated camouflage design to replace the standard leaf pattern worn heretofore. The design incorporates black, medium brown and grass green on a khaki background.
