    Is this a usual paint job for some of you guys or has someone busted out the paint to blend in a bit better?

    pure tan for Iraq, but you'll see some green mixxed in since you have to mix and match parts after they get blown up.

    but yea, that's the state side camo

    if you look in a TM, i don't know what marines call it, but there is an actual pattern for the camo on every piece of equipment

    yup.

    every piece on any vehicle is painted and similar vehicles have the same paint pattern.

    people don't just spray that shit on, its a special kind of paint and its very toxic, I think you have to be certified to paint it. so yes, that is probably the standard for that piece of equipment

    Yeah that's the case here as well, for example this is what went to tender for the M1's.
