Let me counter with a picture which shows repaired/reissued equipment from December 2014:

Not QUITE sure, but this looks like a T-64BV as well...

Hm... Well, I do see - a VERY faded - standard pattern on the "018" and the "122". It is possible they're using non-permanent paint tht washes and/or fades pretty quickly and was just applied to make the equipment look good for the media and the people.

 

They take what they can get and having evey tank camouflaged is taking time. From what I've seen, the Ukrainians have/use about a DOZEN different patterns for their vehicles - some old, some pretty new and still being tested. There even is some kind of digital pattern seen on some BMD-2s.

 

The most likely scenario is that older equipment carries old patterns (like the Soviet-era standard 3-tone one), intermediate equipment is rather green than anything else and the newest stuff would be painted in either this digital pattern or the black/grey/green 3-tone one.

Not suggesting that green is standard, just that there is such a mix of camo patterns that picking one as "standard" is ridiculous. There are old Soviet patterns, newer Ukrainian patterns, patterns for foreign clients, improvised patterns, etc.  Solid green is as good or better than any individual camo pattern you might select.

Thing is, they have three types of solid green. Older muffled soviet green, newer green that looks exactly like Russian green, and a slightly more vivid one found on T-64B1M's. I'll keep the muffled "salad" green for older equipment mixing in with "Russian" green, and I'll use the vivid one for Bulat's and newer domestic products. I think it makes sense, at least in my mind. 

 

PS: that salad green isn't final by any stretch of imagination, just showing what testing can be all about.

For the Bulats, at least, this 3-color pattern is fairly standard:

BM Oplot and BTR-4E would be largely speculative, since we are assuming future production in the game.

 

All the older Soviet-era stuff is indeed a free-for-all.

Bulats were already made by Keime, so I see no reason to touch the three color pattern. However at least a part of them was green at some point.

Question, what's your opinion on those pesky little flags on the side of Urk vehicles? I haven't seen them used IRL, but do they help you in-game?

If you will make a "side-neutral" variant (no stripes, flags and other ID symbols), then these vehicles can be used in UKR vs UKR battles to represent Kiev's forces vs militia.

P.S.: Any progress on that red star? :)

Good to go. Just enough green toning and slight aging IMO.

BTR-san is it possible the T-64 texture could be made available. The one in game isn't nearly as sexy as yours.

Aaand, to necro this thread a bit, I've been adjusting the solid green to the Ukranian tone of it. I am quite satisfied with the tone of it and, with luck, I might have a full download by end of Monday.

Result (not sure if this conveys the the tone difference to Russian vehicles:

Here's version 0.1. I've added a bit of flavor to several models, trying not to go overboard. Ukrainian army is not so hot on tactical markings, instead, "aggressor lines", emblems and country regalia are their hot stuff. Preview

I am really hoping Kieme will touch on this as well ;)
