Vallejo presents three new sets for painting Russian vehicles: Russian Greens, Cold War & Modern Russian Desert Patterns and Cold War & Modern Russian Green Patterns
Russian Greens (1928ís to Present) is a set of 8 Model Air colors which include all the shades of green used for base colors and camouflage patterns.
From the beginning in the twenties of the mechanization of the army of the Soviet Union, including tanks and light and heavy vehicles, camouflage patterns (on occasion extremely elaborate) were considered, and shades of green were
employed as a standard base color.
The evolution of these colors has not caused great changes, but rather more of a constant expansion, beginning with the primitive 3K and 4BO up to the colors used in modern conflicts.
The climate and the geography determined the selection of the colors most used in that period.

Cold War & Modern Russian Desert Patterns, Set of 8 Model Air colors which contain a selection of colors for painting the camouflage patterns of contemporary soviet combat vehicles.
The color references included are of those of the official URSS colors, and include camouflage patterns currently used on AFV vehicles. The
camouflage patterns are very elaborate, and occasionally include up to four colors in order to effectively break the outline of the vehicle, and were developed as much for city environments as for desert landscapes.
Normally the pattern has diffuse borders applied with a spray gun or pistol, or patches with hard outlines. A variety of sand colors were used as base color.

patterns used up to date on AFV vehicles.
The camouflage schemes were very elaborate, some with hard edges and others with diffuse borders, and were applied with a spray gun. The patterns included on occasion up to four colors in order to effectively break the silhouette of the vehicle in city-scapes as well as in wooded areas. A variety of green colors were used as base color.

Good news as Russian WW2 and Cold War color schemes seem like just green, but the tonal variations are important.
