Imagine tabling this at your next comp

That yellow. And the brown… How could they do that to the Abrams!

It reminds me of the tanks you find in packets of toy soldiers at budget shops.

My first thought, where’s the RAL 6003 Olivgrun? (J/k)

That would be a fun scheme to paint.

Passed this on to a 11ACR Vet and he says it’s their OPFOR colors.

Of course you would. It’s very reminiscent of British Middle East cammo of the 50’s/60’s.
I’ll bet you remember it well. :rofl:

Yup, rear bumper numbers say 11 ACR, HQ 10.

I built an M1A1 in this scheme for the 1st SQN CDR as a going away present from his troops back in '05 or '06.

Gino, was that CARC Tan ? and what was the brown ?

Looking over browns, the AK NATO brown appears to be a decent match ?

Yes, the paints were CARC on the actual vehicles. Not sure of the actual brown color, but the tan was the standard sand FS 33531 used on all US vehicles. The 11 ACR actually deployed with the vehicles painted this way to Iraq in '05.
