Here's pic from the Falklands while the Argentinian troops were dealing with Royal Marines. There are a few more pics out there to be found.

The camouflage scheme would have come much later than the Falklands. That pic I think was taken in 2007.

Here are more pics of the LARCs on the Falkland Islands.

You'd never know from the B&W image above that the 15 was in red....except for the fact those exact decals are provided in the Hobby Fan LARC kit.

Wow.... this does bring back a whole bunch of memories. This was our primary vehicle during beach ops when I was with Navy Beachmasters 78-81. I may have to add that to my stash

It is correct, the rigth colours of that time was only green. The others eschemes are post malvinas / Falklands.
More Pictures more of the vehicle, the Argentinean Larc-V has little differences of the rest.
Look...









The last view was take before they were to Malvinas / Falklands, In the boat transport.
