Most Unusual Submarine Paint Job

There have been many different things done to ships and submarines over the years, most of them unauthorized (teeth, racing stripes, big targets painted on destroyers, etc.) The various "dazzle" camouflage scheme tested during WWII ranks right up there, but this paint scheme tops them all...

The submarine is HMS Opossum (S19), following her deployment to the Persian Gulf in 1991.
