Or more appropriately was the JS-3 every in Russian service with any camouflage schemes? How about other post war series of tanks? I could see a winter white wash and found photos of JS-3 tanks used by Middle East countries in desert sand, but otherwise nothing. The parade tanks with white fender edges and such do not count.

Any early post-war period camouflage patterns that would make a reasonable "what if"?

Did they make it into sand/red-brown/charcoal cam?

Very interesting scheme for a what-if. It got me wondering about other Russian armor 1945-1950. I looked at the website Mark linked and google, but it seems as though USSR tanks came from the Henry Ford School of colors... Just one is all they needed.

Egypt and Syria both had Russian armor with camo-schemes, but you would have to go into the sixties, I believe. Check out some Middle East wars for that. They used the T-34/85, T-54/55, ISU-152, PT-76, etc, etc.....Dan
