Default Desert Storm M577 Colors

I am building the old Tamiya M577 APC for a friend who was assigned to them in Desert Storm. Does anyone know what colors I would use for the camoflague scheme? was there a set camoflague scheme pattern.
Thanks for any and all assistance.

My guess would be NATO tri color/Grey or Sand (MM 2136 US Army/Marines Gulf Armor Sand).

In my battalion they were the standard NATO tri-color. Everything was, except out chocolate chip cookie uniforms. Trucks, howitzers, MOPP suits, flack vests, all green.

I think I still have a uniform stuffed in a duffle bag somewhere. I know I still have the boonie hat. This was riding back home on a Northwest Airlines 747.

My apologies stanparker123, didn't mean to hijack your thread.

Forgot about this picture. Small and grainy since I didn't even know what a digital camera was 25 years ago. Notice, everything we have is green. This was after we completed firing a direct fire mission against T-72 tanks a couple thousand yards out in front of us. Somehow the 24ID tanks had slowed and we caught up with them. Good thing, some were pinned in a wadi by the T-72's so we got the fire mission to deal with them. 8" artillery (3), T-72's (0). I have a snapshot somewhere of an M577 cruising along beside my vehicle, if I find it I'll post it up.

Default Desert Strom M577 Colors

Thanks to all who helped on this project. I delivered the completed model a few months ago. I'd post a photo here if I could figure out how to do so.
