In Steve Jackson's(the US one) Ogre Miniatures Book, the PSB is that
is superfluous in the future all-electronic battle field. The tanks
be outlined in bright colors, keyed to side and threat, in the holo
displays that actually ran the battle.

Certainly, in the Gulf, with many shots on the order of mile or greater,
through dense smoke, and/or at night, this has happened in some
Natch, it's a special case, and I'd rather be camo'd in every way
Hell, I'd rather keep keep my ass as far from any shooting as possible.

However, my impression is that, if the best IR-suppressing paint were
pink paisley, the Iragi tankers and  gro-po's would have done a better
surviving in Mod mode.

While the above is an observation, and not argument on my part, SJ also
pointed out that camo on the miniature battlefield can be too effective.
Nice if your opponent misses seeing your unit, bad if you do likewise,
miss using it for a turn or three.

It's bad enough when I get spacey and miss using something in dazzle
