HTK-AS67 Modern US Army and USMC AFV Paint Set
After relatively short period of using the complex MERDC camouflage, in mid-1980s a new 3-colour pattern was developed by NATO (as in the US this process was parallel to transition to Chemical Agent Resistant Coating paints - CARC - it is often referred to as "CARC scheme"). The new paint scheme was to be used by all NATO ground forces and consisted of a base green colour (FS34094) with brown (FS30051) and black (FS37030) disruptive shapes. Washable white paint was advised for temporary (partial or overall) pattern in winter environment. CARC Tan (FS33446) or more recently CARC Middle Stone (FS33531), both with strong fading tendency, have been used in desert conditions. Heavy-armour vehicles' interiors are painted gloss white, while most of APCs/IFVs still use light green shade (FS24533).
