Check it out, the "vanilla" desert camo look has given way to some new multi-color hues. The tanks and wannabe tanks(Bradleys) are from 1st Bn, 35th Armor Regt, 2nd Brigade Heavy Combat Team, 1st Armored Division. The shots are from the DVIDS site and were taken at Ft Bliss, TX and McGregor Range, NM.

The FEX(Field Exercise) was for a Network Integration Evaluation taking new junk and systems for a test drive. And here is a link to a video about the exercise. Good footage of the Secretary of the Army getting a Dog & Pony on one of the camo A2s:

Our field reporter in SW Tejas, Allen Hill should be getting us a detailed follow up report soon(hint). And Ozzy must be teary eyed about now.

Looks like they are still using the NATOflage pattern, but substituting black with brown and leaving the brown camo pattern off...

Very cool cammo Mike, reminds me of the French Army desert pattern seen on the Buffalo.

Crazy Train is a great name for a tank, though it would not go over well in P.C. Canada!

The 11 ACR OPFOR Krasnovian K1 tanks out at the NTC (Ft Irwin, CA) was/are in this scheme.



They also deployed to Iraq with this scheme on their '05 rotation.


Allan already showed an M7A3 BFIST in this scheme. It looks opretty good.

I see folks creating job security with those types of witch hunts. I used "Crazy Train" as one of my unique run chants to motivate my Recruits once we hit Third Phase! It is a good moniker to slap on a iron hog too.

I used CS gas to motivate my recruits...it worked exceptionally well on Officer Candidates.

Atleast it breaks up the outline.

Hi Folks!

The 2nd HBCT has taking over the mission of testing new things from the 5th BCT which has stood down.

We should be seeing a number of different things showing on vehicles in the 2nd HBCT.

Me and Allen checked out the Armed Forces Day displays yesterday and there was NOT a single vehicle on display from the 2nd HBCT.

Our eyes are scanning, our cameras are ready, updated spot reports to follow.
Sgt, Scouts out!
