In the days before the Steel Vipers occupied the Inner Sphere, Gamma painted its machines a gun metal blue-grey with a Steel Viper snake skin covering many of the surfaces. Once the invasion was underway, the warriors of Gamma Galaxy changed their scheme to use the serpents of Terra. These schemes doubly serve as camouflage and various species are used to appropriately match the terrain. Out of tradition, the Galaxy Commander always uses the original Steel Viper Gamma scheme. Warriors are not allowed to display the Gamma insignia until their first kill.
