Change coming to Afghanistan Strykers paint job – Duh!
Understand that half the “Change” Obama has to bring to the government of these United States is the elimination of Cheneyesque corruption and cronyism – and reversing Bush Era stupidity.
Sure blends into the landscape doesn’t it?
More than six years after sending the first Stryker armored vehicles into desert combat, the Army has decided that it’s probably a good idea to start painting them tan so they will blend in with the environments in Afghanistan and Iraq…“Strykers will blend into surroundings better. They’re less likely to stand out like silhouettes…”
The Army and its contracting agencies have been talking about changing the color of the Strykers since 2004, according to Butts, “but nothing firm was planned out until now.”
RTFA. There is some real “insight” displayed by soldiers and officers who just discovered that standing out like a sore thumb isn’t an advantage.
Field units cannot change the color themselves. There’s a facility for that. In another country.
The production line vehicles can only be ordered in one color; so, green it is unless the Pentagon changes to desert tan – for everywhere.
