top of the morning to all my fellow AFV buffs.
I did a quick serch to see if I could find some images and/or plans that show the four color camo that was used on the M60A1 MBT in the mid seventies. I am sure there is some ref in this forums listing but so far I haven't found it . So I am asking if some of you long time users have the tread listing for this topic.
Thank you

Also in my motor pool gallery there is a copy of the camouflage painting manual. There are some neat photos of the older type patterns on an M60A1 in particular.
