    On a related note, a buddy of mine in the Guard said that some of the "modernized" 5 ton trucks that are coming back from their upfit work have some questionable silhouettes on them also. So much more intriguing than your standard od/woodland/desert finish.

    They're from Desert Shield/Desert Storm. HMH-466 did that paint work (you can see the squadron designation in the 3rd pic); that was my first Fleet squadron. I worked with a bunch of the guys who did that paintwork.

    They kept it that way for a while, too... until some douchebag Army field-grade semi-knuckle-dragging worthless POS staff occifer (yep, that's spelled right...:D ) got all high & mighty about the possibility of "offending their hosts" (they were in Saudi at the time). He ran it up the chain, and away the paintjobs went. Probably wrote himself up for an Army Comm, too. Douchebag...

    Sounds like the same pinhead that called in and complained that having a coat hanger wrapped around the bottom of a patrol car push bar (helps when the keys are still in the ignition and the door locked) was offensive to people who are concerned about abortions. Sadly, some high level pencil pusher agreed with him and off they came............

    This is why I liked the WWII USA... back then we hoped that we were offending our enemies.
