I have several US miniatures that I need to do in a MERDC scheme and am having trouble finding the correct colors in the old paint lines that I have used in the past. As Vallejo is much more available what colors from their line do you all suggest?

these are the Vallejo colours I used for mine
US MERDC Winter verdant Vehicles:
893 US Dark Green
873 US Field Drab
821 German Camouflage beige
898 Dark Sea Blue or 862 Black Grey

This is what they come out like:
