No, about the vehicles. 3 body reds, 2, or even 1 cockpit blue, white specular, black for the outline.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I was gonna say that it's not so much the amount of colors as it is the amount of values that people overdo in a way that decreases readability, but I've noticed that when doing sprites or terrain tiles, one sometimes has to be moderately conservative with the amount of hues as well, or at least try be consistent with their global use.

Usually I am all for hue-shift, but for color-coded armies, a bit more clean-ramping red and blue is a good idea.
