Response to Smolensk rhomboid - nice cammo pattern shot

Nice pics, thank you!
The tank on this pic is definitvely a MarkV (look at the exhaust louvres in the side, the square commander cupola and the exhaust pipe), one the of the tanks supplied by by British to the wussian white army during the civil war and taken by the red army to be used until the late twenties.
Regarding the camo, the tanks used by the white army remain in their original scheme (even with their id number and the red and white recognition markings sometime changed to the russian flag colours). The red army sometime repainted them in a two tones scheme, probalbly dark green/light green or maybe green/yellow earth.
The camo on the pic could be original russian one or repainted when the tank was used as memorial.
As far I know, none of those ancestors were in use during Barbarossa, except maybe the few taken from Balts.
