Im on to the painting stage of my RFM M1A1FEP and I noticed the NATO scheme seemed different. So upon research the scheme is different. Has the pattern changed? The reason why I’m checking is in the paint guide it only show front, back, and starboard. I knew I should have gone with Sand camo.
My first instinct is that the instructions are incorrect. All the factory painted ones I have seen are mostly identical. Depot painted ones have more variations.
But this is a USMC vehicle, and they may very well have painted it that way, since they are not following Army standards. Marines are different, and proud of it!
