"Vehicle Paint Schemes of the Third World War

I am writing this as a companion piece to my previous article, as I felt that this needed more attention, not to mention the fact that paint schemes need a good base, and what better than the "historical" paint schemes of the time.

Now that said, I get this is alternate history, and in the vehicle guides, there are their own interpretations of paint schemes that don't bear any resemblance to what wound up on vehicles in the mid-1990s. GDW in their defense, wrote the books in the mid-1980s and much of the color plate work I must say was extremely speculative. They did what they could with no internet, and a reference library that was not at all the size of what is available to most modelers and gamers today. That said, I personally think they did a fine job, and one can get into the whys and wherefores of why they did what they did ad nauseum….."

That brings back memories of playing T:2000 about 30 years ago.

Some of those MERDC desert schemes look downright alien!
