Many Thanks

Looks to me in the photo to the left, that it's probably just the standard, US olive drab color from back in the day.

Photo appears to have been taken every early, or late in the day, given the shadow from the tank, so I suspect the "golden" tones may be from the sunrise.

I don't know for sure, so perhaps someone else may have more info.

I've seen Danish, US manufactured vehicles looking the same too, from back in the Cold War days.

Yes that sounds about right … The colors on the right may be more recent.
