Default M-715's in Germany

Just got these pictures from a fellow vet who served in Germany in the 70's. Interesting paint scheme.

From the 5th Signal Company 76th Signal Battalion

Cool pics, they are painted in the experimental camo known as MASSTER camo pattern which was used only in Germany during the 70's. There is a guy on here restoring his M715 back to MASSTER camo and it looks pretty cool. The tread is here; M724 across the Atlantic.

Superb photos,
rboltz



The MASSTER camouflage scheme above is the ultimate version.
I will say the photo is close to the 80s, maybe 1978.
The truck in the background is a Dodge M882 built before August 1976 in its first camouflage, it will be preceded by the diagram below.
I have the impression of attending a handover.

Yes, he served from 1976 to 1980 in Germany. The 715's survived longer there. I have a few more pictures with more Dodges and/or Chevy's

thank you,
Ron.
Your photos are so rare.
First of all,
for those who do not know your site, it is an essential source of information.

I am very interested in your photos have can see there the first diagram for the M880 it is MASSTER camo.
To tell you the truth this diagram could be one of my future project for my M882.
