I've always been under the assumption that "dazzle" made it difficult to get a angle-on-the-bow, or a heading in general. Zig-zagging would have made things even more complicated.
Why wasn't it used more often on WWII transports? Was it that tremendous of an undertaking by the paint crews? Did it need that much maintenance to keep it's usefulness?
