All military equipment is being repainted for Russian Victory Day Parade 2010 inside special mobile tents or hangars. First, each vehicle is carefully cleaned, and stripped of old paint with a special solution. Chalk is subsequently used to draw new camouflage lines on the surface. Each S-400 Triumf (SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) system requires 40 liters of green paint, 30 liters of yellow paint and 20 liters of black paint. This is more than is used up on any other unit of military equipment. Over 50% of military equipment has already been repainted. In all, 159 vehicles will take part in the May 9 Victory Day Parade on Moscow’s Red Square.
