Rare pictures of a Merkava 2B in experimental three tone camouflage. The experiment was conducted between 1988-1990 and included an olive green and a grey scheme as well.

Amazing, and it is so much more obvious than the plain vehicles in the first photograph.

Thank you for posting.

Just saw this thread and that is an interesting scheme. It sure will make for an interesting model and one that will make every armor modeler do a second take. Thanks for sharing buddy
