One of the most underrated advantages of being colour blind is the ability to much more easily spot contrasts. Popularly throughout time colour blind individuals have been trained as snipers in the military due to the ineffectiveness of camouflage on their vision.
One story published in TIME magazine back in the 1940s described how one pilot who had accidentally snuck through the colour screening program had inadvertently made a mission a success by easily spotting camouflaged enemy in grass and trees. Of course the Air Force and Army is still in no rush to start accepting thousands of colour blind applicants because they still deem the ability to read buttons and lights and signals properly as very important (Rightfully so I guess).
This makes the colour blind sniper a hit or miss thing. Some have suggested they were prevented from taking on the role, others (mostly from days gone by) have said they were employed specifically.
