Krāsojuma noturība

[..] The 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment added temporary green netting to their tanks. But it wasn’t until they had settled into the U.S. Army’s Grafenwoehr Training Area in Germany that the tanks began receiving a fresh paint job [..]

[..] But the green will only stay as long as the equipment remains in Europe.
“The paint is a temporary paint,” said England. “Once we go back home, we can pressure wash it off.“[..]

  1. Tas, ka pamata krāsa ir dzeltenā un zaļā ir pagaidu, nevis otrādi, var norādīt uz to, ka Pentagons uzskata varbūtību karot Eiropā mazāku kā varbūtību karot tuksnesī.

    Vai arī vienkārši dzeltenai pagaidu krāsai cauri spīdētu tumšākā zaļā krāsa?

    • Nekas tur cits nav kā steiga pārdislocējot (arī zīmīgi). Cita lieta ka tanku krāsojuma pamatslānim ir IR starojuma slāpēšanas īpašības kas palīdz maskēt objektu no novērošanas ar NVG un termovīzoriem. Tanka pamatkrāsa slānis nav vienkārša rilak produkcija 🙂 Ideālā gadījumā tanks tiek ražots Eiropas apvidum un krāsots ar atbilstošu krāsu. Ņemot vērā ka US tikai nesen izveda savus tankus no Eiropas, tagad vedot tos atpakļa jautājums kur parika zaļie?
      The camouflage coatings that are used by the US Army and NATO forces have been formulated with pigments that behave similarly to vegetation both in sunlight and under IR illumination. Presumably, the same applies to the coatings used in desert environments (Iraq) or in Arctic regions where everything is white. These coatings can be purchased from companies such as Sherwin-Williams, Hentzen Coatings and others.

      Tehnikas IR profila slēpšanas jomā notiek nepārtraukta izpēte, tādēļ jūtos nedaudz vīlies, ka jaunais krāsojums ir pagaidu nevis kāds tehnoloģisks uzlabojums.

      n USA various exercizes saw a large variety of 1-tones seasonal camouflage patterns being tested (MERDC), later abandoned for the olive drab. NATO Black/Med-Green/Dark-Brown standard CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) pattern were also applied for some time to M1s deployed in Northern Europe. In Iraq however, the tanks were painted in desert tan. With the following operations in the 2000s in Afghanistan and Iraq, some repaired tanks showed a mix of parts in desert tan and olive drab depending of the depot supplies. Nowadays only the Australian tanks shows a 3-tone disruptive camouflage made of black, olive drab and brown.
