I bought the Dragon Orange box M1A1HC release with the USMC figures, I understand they are not correct for the M1A1HC, would they be better suited to a M60 crew?
Cheers,

or don't, but yeah, we wore that stuff on M48A5/M60A1 RISE/Passive/M60A3TTS tanks. We even had those uniforms on M1IPs and M1A1s before we got the Nomex CVC uniforms.

The figures are painted in the "chocolate chip" Desert Camouflage Uniforms, a slightly different cut than the woodland pattern Battle Dress Uniforms.

You could paint the figures in either type of uniform.
