Maybe it's because I've spent too much time staring at it, but looks like the pattern repeats quite often, in just the upper it looks like its repeating 2-3 times and because the pattern is mostly horizontal it looked like the LTTE camo from a distance (with "Malicious Fliter" (TM) applied).
/Gucchi camo out.
Well you are not alone, it seems like there is little to no disruption in macro patterns. My hypothesis is they tried to pre-empt any criticism by pulling the infamous 'Malicious intent' saga. These kind pre-emption would have been very helpful on 27th feb 19.

Another criticism regarding lack of macro patterns.

How credible are these criticisms?

Well, even the MTP camo, can't break the silhouette completely.

Even though it has got the macros, but still we can figure out the last person. So the matter is very subjective.

On the other hand I haven't seen a camo that changes it's shandes so dramatically with the lighting conditions.

It has got some perks.
May be useful in dense jungles like Myanmar boarder or semi-arid places like Kargil. IDK we will figure it out in an year or so.

It's the pink tinge which makes the uniform appear different with different filters and sunlight conditions.

This appears to be the most realistic image I could get that reflects the uniform accurately.

I actually belief that the material of the fabric is so dull, that it scatters the surrounding light very uniformly. So depending on the exposure to sunlight & reflection from the surroundings, the dress itself takes up yellow-green-brown hue & doesn't have a distinct shade of itself.

Didn't have to face so much ambiguity before in order to determine the actual colour of a camo.

Prime example:

You keep seeing this semi maroon camo on the new helmets for no reason, which is different from the rest of the camo. I still haven't seen any explanation from the army on why they have a different and weird camo on their MKU helmets.
I have suitcase covers in the helmet camo. Commonly available fabric.
