Strichtarn was a military camouflage pattern developed in East Germany and used from 1965 to 1990.

Strichtarn was designed with broken vertical red-brown lines on a grey-green field, which was also known as the raindrop pattern. The patterns made for the Strichtarn consisted of Type 1, which was made from 1965 to 1967. Type 2 was made from 1967 to 1990.

The pattern is also seen as helmet covering for the M56 Helmet.
