It's A.MIG-083 ZASHCHITNIY ZELENO (Post-war Green) Should be the match you're looking for .

It can be found in the Vietnam set in fact . If you need something else , they have Russian Greens 1956- Present.

Hope this is helpful.

Photos of the tanks seem to show something fairly dark. I've just used Tamiya Dark Green. The few pieces of 1980s vintage CHinese armor I have seen in person show a pretty dark, rather intense, vivid, green. Tamiya Dark Green or Deep Green would work ok.

They used T-54s and Type 59s. For NVA stuff I use XF-81 Dark Green 2 (RAF).
