I probably asked a similar question before … I note that certain US Army vehicles on exercise in Europe in 2017 were given a coat of washable green paint over their CARC Tan base, though specific areas remained in their original colour. Thinking about the M2A3 Bradley, which parts would not have been overpainted?
With the main focus of the Big Army from the Middle East (until this last weekend’s terrorist attacks on israel), back to Europe. A lot of units are repainting their vehicles from 686 CARC Tan to CARC 383A green. With the US Army’s V Corps having a permanent presence in Poland, along with Divisions like the 1st, 3rd and 4th Infantry Division doing training rotations in Poland, we will be seeing a big shift from tank to green from now on.
Makes a lot of sense from a tactical point of view.
Now that we’re focusing back to Europe and possibly China. All our vehicles are getting repainted back to the NATO 3 color scheme. Units deploying to Germany or Poland on training missions are getting the temporary green over tan color while the rest of the gear stateside is getting fully repainted.
Not a Balkankreuz. It is part of the convoy lighting system. White cross is illuminated by the low voltage light in the middle. Keeps the guy behind from rogering the vehicle in front. Kinda like the Notek lights in WW2.
