The summer color of the Soviet tactical signs was white on green camouflage, the winter color was red on white camouflage. Also, for fast aerial recognition, there were the white (red) circles, lines, triangles, crosses, squares on the turret's roofs. The red star was the main symbol of Russian national markings, but used rarely.
