American technology in Europe is repainted in camouflage

The newspaper Stars and Stripes published a report from the American base Coleman Barracks (Coleman’s Barracks), where the repainting of military equipment began, into a European (based on green) camouflage scheme, the blog reports bmpd.


American technology in Europe is repainted in camouflage


According to the newspaper, under the repainting came "a newly deployed set of a standard armored brigade of the US Army (Armored Brigade Combat Team - ABCT), called the European Activity Set (EAS)."

The blogger recalls that the specified “EAS kit was created at the beginning of 2014 of the year and placed at the German Grafenwer landfill in Bavaria, near the border with the Czech Republic, and now due to the growth of the“ Russian military threat ”it is planned to move to Eastern Europe and the Baltic countries”. From the US, the vehicles arrived in a “desert” coloring.



It was previously reported that the kit includes “90 major tanks M1A2 SEP v.2 Abrams, 140 M2A3 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, 20 155 mm M109A6 self-propelled howitzers, as well as a significant number of auxiliary armored vehicles and vehicles. ”

        Laughter with laughter, and this suggests that this EAS kit in Europe will last a long time and will increase in numbers. Poland will most likely be trying to get the Americans from Germany and the Czech Republic to be moved to them and even ready to pick up all the Yankees stationed there from the Baltic states. However, the more compact the EAS kit elements will be placed, the easier it will be to “multiply by zero” in a short time. Our group on the western border would not hurt to equip the “Peace Tigers” with cornets inside and “Hermes” with the means of TsU so that the expensive toys of “Uncle Sam” become a pile of burning metal as soon as possible from the start of the “Hypothetical conflict” .. .

          Repaint? It has been said more than once that the Armed Forces of Ukraine and all sorts of shit battalions are taught to control such equipment.
          Whoever knows, we may soon see them in the vastness of 404. Repainted.

        This is not news, here is news ... laughing
        Yavoriv training ground in the Lviv region, where the joint exercises of Ukraine and the United States are being held, were robbed. Two local residents stole a radar from the US TALS drone worth 215 thousand dollars from the base.
        Having stolen expensive equipment, the attackers were going to surrender the radar for scrap metal. However, law enforcement officers were able to detain the criminals, and the equipment was found and returned to the landfill.

      Eugene, if you follow your logic, it turns out we camouflage our equipment so that our potential adversary does not find it in the bushes.
      In fact, disguise is an element of hostilities. If memory serves for the first time, the protective coloring of the uniform of soldiers was used by the British in the Boer War.

          However, dear marlin1203, this significantly reduced the loss of the British, it is clear that of course everyone worried about the Boers, but the fact remains.

        And we replace the logic with unpredictability - we will paint the camouflage aircraft in “Serdyukovsky gray”, then the tanks in “green shoigu”. fellow
        If it’s more or less clear with airplanes, then it’s not with tanks.

    That's right, you need to paint in white, because the experience of the Second World War showed that the main losses of German technology were in the winter. And in the summer with such a summer coloring, you may not even notice how it will be withdrawn by militias from the DPR and LPR. soldier

    Prepare a sled in the summer, and a cart in the winter. So it’s worth it for us to prepare, so that it’s not like in the 41st
    And then do not look for the guilty.
    We’ll get ready, and it will become clear to the fool that it’s not worth contacting us, and even more so to the “partners”.
