I missed this before...

I like the vertical stripes on the upper Type 90. A simple technique with strips of white tape but it would break up the outline from a distance. I'm less sure about the effectiveness of all those white dots  :-\

Ouch! New camouflage approach? Something like" "I'm not sure what that is but I know that I don't want to look at it for long!'  :o

I wonder when they expect the painter(s) to get out of therapy after masking it?

Probably depends upon how long the seeing-eye guide dog training and orientation takes ...

It's on its way to the next paint shop in the process to get the next color applied. Then it gets sent to another completely different contractor to get the tape removed. Government efficiency in action.
