Not sure if there is a simple answer. But for my BGK games I need some jeeps and universal carriers. So we're these supplied in US and UK colours, then left in those?

I have some jeeps I sprayed up in the FoW US olive drab, which is quite an interesting brown colour – so they stand out from my Russian green tanks etc.

So would welcome people's thoughts please.

Keep them in olive drab. See link- only the GAZ is soviet green. link

Jeeps were often shipped 'crated', factory finished in OD and just needing some assembly on arrival…wheels,windscreen and canvas/roof poles etc

It is safe to assume most vehicles and aircraft delivered to the Soviet Union from either the Commonwealth countries or the US remained in the colors they were delivered in. For US vehicles this was mainly the good old OD.
