Having a problem finding definitive proper color for the Magach 7A. I'm leaning towards Real IDF Sinai Grey 82 (a.Mig -131 or Model air AV IDF Gris Sinai 82 71.142). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

yeah, that'll do. lifecolor of the same shade is also very close, and even does the same as the actual paint, changing shade slightly

Somebody makes a MiddleEast dust set . different shades for different areas. An Ex IDF tanker told me that they were not allowed to wash their tanks, just knock the heavy stuff off with a broom. The Sinai Grey with the dust made the perfect camo. If you got shipped from Golan to the Negev, hose the tank off and start again.

I second that. Water is sparse is Israel, you won't waste it on nonsense like washing an operational tank, unless you have a special reason to do that.
