M62 Green Tracer, Brown Tip


M62 7.62x51mm green tracer, brown tip, brass jacket and case, lead front. Headstamp - LC/ 91
Was told these were to confuse enemies, making them think that it was there own troops firing?!?


I heard the same thing, right after the 1990-1991 Gulf War. I was there, but never saw or heard of them in-theater. Supposedly a special request by Special Forces and used to some good effect at least once.

Anyone able to confirm this info?



I would just like to say that I am always impressed by your cutaways, you always make a very good job and I wondered if you could give me any hints or tips for me as I am just starting to get into doing cutaway’s my self.
