Last weekend, Donald Trump's maligned Space Force was royally mocked on Twitter after they posted a picture of their uniforms which will be camouflage.
Now, you don't need us to point out that in space, camouflage won't be much good to anybody unless that camouflage is comprised of images of stars and galaxies.

We're sure that it's a comfortable fit for those brave souls that are going to be fighting the battles on the edge of our solar system but surely something like an astronaut's outfit would be more beneficial.
Anyway, they have finally explained just what is going on with their uniform but chose to do so by replying to someone who was mocking them on Twitter.
Author and comedy writer James Felton replied to the original Space Force tweet, jokingly asking them "how many trees are you expecting to find in space".

It's unusual for a major government account to engage with anybody commenting on their Tweets but the Space Force obviously felt they had to set the record straight as they were being roasted from this side of the galaxy to the next.
As we've stated: we're not deploying operators to space. Only our assets like SBIRS, GPS, AEHF, etc. are in space.
We're currently utilising the existing Army/Air Force OCP uniform pattern as we assign/transition USAF personnel to Space Force.
They then finished off the Tweet with a Tony Stark GIF, you know, like government Twitter accounts do.
