Another special liner used in World War II was the one produced for jungle troops. These liners were made only by Westinghouse and came from their standard production run. The only unusual aspect was the camouflage paint system developed by Westinghouse. The different camouflage colors were applied by airbrush through templates, using a type of stenciling process. Approximately 10,000 liners could be camouflaged per day. A total of 854,225 jungle troop liners were procured in 1942 and 1943. In March of 1944, painting of the camouflaged liners was discontinued and approximately 300,000 were repainted olive drab. The reason given was that helmet nets were more effective than camouflage paint. This seems rather strange since nets were usually not worn on liners and also the liners were generally inside the steel shell in combat anyhow.
