The war in eastern Ukraine or “Anti Terrorist Operation ATO” of 2014 and 2015 has become one of the most popular worldwide modeling issues. The large amount of photos and information about the vehicles that are participating here has made many modelers choose this topic. The many color systems of all vehicles used there are indeed complex and multitudes of standardized colors are mixed with others improvised on the battlefield. This set brings together a small selection of the most common colors used on combat vehicles, excluding the many colors used only on maneuvers or in pre-war times


In 2014 the eastern regions of Ukraine Donetsk and Lugansk (Donbas), part of the New Russia, rebelled against the central government and began a protracted war mainly supported by the Russians, providing armored vehicles to separatists. Although initially the “rebels” used vehicles captured from the Ukrainian army, with time new vehicles of Russian origin begin to appear. As the Ukrainian army used many colors in common with the Russian army and everything was mixed in the battlefield, the rebels decided to use a highly visible and common green, the color A.MIG 054, to identify and distinguish their vehicles from Ukrainians.
