Default Change MEC tracers to yellow

Scince MEC uses all German weapons wont it make sense to make the tracers yellow instead of green? (ps: im not sure that the Germans weapons still use yellow but i know they used it in WWII)

Germany under Hitler fought differently than Germany now.
Germany now uses the same color tracers as the rest of NATO..
Yellow is left for tank rounds and APC autocannons...

Though, I think the MEC would eventually run out of 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition because they are fighting NATO...which means they would have to produce indigenous ammunition and its possible those could be green

I think Nato ones are actually red, just it is very hard to tell in videos. Someone can confirm what colour they are I am sure.

Edit, you can see here it starts of bright yellow, but turns to red in the end. Look closely.

It turns in to red because the phosphorus ignites in halfway down range.

Yeah, I would say that they're red, but they're so hot just after leaving the barrel that they appear to glow yellow/white.

I think they should stay the same. Since you can use green/red or anything in a g3 that fits the 7.62X51mm. NATO rounds use phosphorus or magnesium. Russian or Chinese tracers use barium salts. Sometimes tracers don't emit light rays at all they have infrared rays that can be detected using night vision equipment.

I'm sorry but where's the connection? German weapons doesn't mean german ammunition There's no need to have the same tracers just because german weapons are used

Any country with mid advanced industry can manufacture small arms ammunition, it's not some kind of rare technology .... and it is produced by human civilization for more then one hundred years (cased bullet - cartridge)



BTW.
Those red tracers can glow with yellow light but we can see it as red because of the Doppler effect

The origin of the weapons have nothing to do with tracer colors. It's decided by the ammunition you use.
