The US Army is changing the paint scheme for its vehicles from desert tan to woodland green. What is odd about this is that the woodland green is usually the primer for a camouflage paint scheme.

Instead of using it as a primer color like the US Army in Europe has done. In this case, it appears like the woodland green will simply be the final color. Why?

Why? So they’re differentiated from the ones Obiden left in the shithole, when he gives away the next set of billions?

Planning to operate in woodland AOs?

    But that would not be a flat green.

The chocolate chip pattern of the CA desert was originally adopted in 1971.
The Trebark proto camo from the 80’s is my favorite along with Vietnam era Tiger Stripe and the original German Waffen-SS Flecktarn.

I’ve been watching the Transportation National Guard unit close by. I get the feeling when they change from Desert Camo something is up. They went to Iraq twice so if they get deployed to Poland I expect a new paintjob.

A single color is cheaper and easier. It’s also possible that “supply chain issues” have hit the dot-mil.

    Ahh, yes. The military is well known for saving money on paint, care deeply about how many hours it takes personnel to paint things, and seek to make tasks as easy as possible to accomplish.

Having worked at the source of the vehicles, my bet is on lower cost for the single color and I am also willing to bet there is currently a supply chain issue in obtaining other colors in CARC. As green has pretty much been the base paint since inception, makes sense that would be the most readily available.
