The spray had to be "Filtered" in the totally enclosed structure. CARC was very caustic if sprayed. So my crews generally just used it to cover a small area. With a paint brush …

Patterns varied. There was a four color one and a three color one. Nothing was sand color when we were preparing to fight the Krasnovians. But again, after even a short time in the boonies, everything was covered in dust or mud or both! Those were the days!
