Thanks for sharing... I love this stuff. I actually have a project in mind for an M48 in winter whitewash (US Army though) now I am truly psyched!

Thanks a lot for posting that link. Like the others have said, many great ideas for projects!

Many of the historical Bundeswehr videos on YouTube are worth watching for the same reason. For example, here’s another interesting one, from 1967:

Lots of early Leo 1s!
