What About The Kiwis?
The New Zealand forces were painted using the US MERDC (Mobility Equipment Research and Development Center) scheme which set specific templates as to where and how colours should be applied to ensure an optimal camouflage of vehicles. The NZDF (New Zealand Defence Force) chose the Red Desert version to suit local conditions.
The Red Desert Colour Scheme (and Colours Of War):
Red Desert is based on the following colours Earth Red (Boot Brown), Earth Yellow (Panther Yellow), Sand (Dry Dust and White 50/50 mix) and Black.
