Hataka Hobby continue to expand their popular range of acrylic paints. The latest AFV set is devoted to modern French Army vehicles.
HTK-AS25 “Modern French Army paint set

From the beginning of 1950s French Army vehicles were painted in "Army Green", with exception of those stationed in desert regions, which used "Sahara Yellow" instead. This standard remained until early 1990s, when instruction MAT 2636 introduced an obligatory tri-colour camouflage of Dark Green, Earth Brown and Black. The instruction also sanctioned a special scheme for desert conditions of Desert Sand and Earth Brown (used for example during Operation Daguet in Iraq in 1991) and a variant for winter conditions of White and Earth Brown.

HTK-AS25 contains selection of six colours, covering all major camouflage variants of French Army AFVs. The set contains:

• HTK-A121 - Jaune Sahara - Standard overall colourof French Army vehicles stationed in desert regions in 1950s-60s, also during Suez Canal Crisis in 1956
• HTK-A122 - Vert IR OTAN - Earlier "army green" and "army green IR". Standard overall colour of French Army vehicles from the beginning of 1950s till late 1980s
• HTK-A123 - Brun Terre IR - Standard camouflage colour of French Army vehicles from early 1990s (incl. on AMX Leclerc, AMX 30, VBCI, VAB and AMX 30 Au F1)
• HTK-A124 – Vert Foncé IR - Standard camouflage colour of French Army vehicles from early 1990s (incl. on AMX Leclerc, AMX 30, VBCI, VAB and AMX 30 Au F1)
• HTK-A125 - NATO Black - Standard camouflage colour of French Army vehicles from early 1990s (incl. on AMX Leclerc, AMX 30, VBCI, VAB and AMX 30 Au F1)

Just the sort of thing I am looking for! Does anyone sell this brand on-line? Stevens is the distributor in the US per the website, but my local hobby store situation is dying...

I found them being sold at Jaddar Hobby .. and they have a whole line of aircraft colors.. so, they're just new with AFV colors, I guess I also found a review on YouTube .. for aircraft colors, but I guess the quality is the same for all. I'm thinking of getting the Modern French set for my VBL.. and later on for the AMX 10.. and the Tamiya Leclerc Hisham
