The Chameleon Suit is a type of hi-tech camouflage system utilized by FOXHOUND during the 1990s, acting as their field uniform.

They were capable of dividing into cold and hot regional types, with both variants supporting a variable-camouflage system with internal heat and luminous sensors. It also worked in conjunction with a camouflage screen composed of a polyesther shield with few radar reflection ratio. As such, it was colloquially named the "Chameleon Suit" because the variable-camouflage system changed colors and patterns in a similar manner to a chameleon and assimilates it into the surrounding. Below are the patterns it could undertake, with the chameleon color changing for the corresponding setting:

Region Type/Area Uniform/Camo Index
30% 30% 5% 5% 30%
 COLD  Evergreen Forest Green  Field Drab Sand  Black   Chameleon 
Snowy Forest Green White Sand Black Chameleon
HOT  Tropical Rainforest  Forest Green  Dark Green  Light Green Black Chameleon
Desert (Gray) Sand Field Drab  Earth Yellow  Black Chameleon
Desert (Red) Earth Red Earth Yellow Sand Black Chameleon
Urban Urban Gray White Dark Gray Black Chameleon

Behind the scenes

In the manual for Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, it erroneously stated that the first two 30% categories for the Red Desert camo pattern was Forest Green and White, instead of Earth Red and Earth Yellow.
