What's wrong with this picture?

That tank is painted green.  I didn't know we had any tanks painted green any more...   ;^)

Remote fire Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Maughon, right, the master gunner for Company C, 2nd Battalion, 12th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division and Staff Sgt. Scott Colson, left, a tank commander in Company C, 2nd Bn. 12th Cav. Regt. remote fire a tank during calibration fire at Grafenwoehr Training Area, Germany, Oct. 1. (U.S. Army photo by Capt. John Farmer, 1st BCT, 1st CD Public Affairs).


Rats! My LT invited me to go see some night tank firing when we were at Bragg that one time, and I chose to rack out. She was a good one to work for; she bought the pizza when we where doing the paperwork for the turn in of the old radios after the switch to SINGARS. (I've heard that SINGARS has gone by the boards in the two decades since then.)
 See, I thought it might have been a municipal police department issuing a "high risk" warrant for unpaid parking tickets, or something similarly dangerous.
Looks like that cammo paint. Some brown and blask there too. The old woodland pattern.
