Thanks morge and guuzidi

There will be 5 skins -> 2 versions of desert '41 skin: one for tanks and one for trucks (and other vehicles)

Ok, I think that I'll post these camos here if you want :wink:
I will create skins for CC when the entire Allied campaign will be completed...
Thanks so much Kondi!! Really appreciate your time and effort in making and sharing these.

Question.
What kind of skin would be recommended for US (and maybe Aussie/British) units in Korea 1950?

The "tiger" camouflages were famous as the Americans tried to take advantage of the fact that the Koreans and the Chinese were superstitious, so they experimented with tanks painted in schemes designed to frighten your enemy. (I don't know if it actually worked, but there must have been a reason if they were using it :wink: )

It will be difficult to create something like this, but I can try... :shock: :wink: :lol:

I think you can use the US faction winter camouflage which is in my skins pack in CC. Standard camouflage should be the same only without traces of snow. I'll think about that.

If you have the time, Kondi. Much appreciated.
I use the top 'tiger tank' pic in one of the scenarios. I'm currently playtesting a full campaign 1950 pt.1.

You guys need Korean tanks to be added? If you make the texture, I can do the rest. During the process I can make modification to the model, too.

Hm, I might take you up on that. GabeKnight created some units for me (he basically created the mod), but if I remember correctly he kept the models simple.
My Korea mod is a work-in-progress, but it works. There's even a new High Grass terrain in there.
If you like you can download the mod and check out the current units in the editor. Only US tanks and a couple of new jet air units in the hardware dept so far.

This is the latest mod version, not 'official' yet.

We can continue the discussion in my Campaigns thread and not 'pollute' Kondi's thread.

Very interesting project for me, I'll play with textures a bit

These skins look like paintings but the result is pleasantly surprising (war paintings) :)

It is too bad that the excellent skins are lost during multi-player games.

Hey thanks, there was a lot of trials and experiments, the skins look rather strange but the effect on vehicles is ok IMHO
