It’s going to be a mixture of sand blasting, dust, mud and so forth. I’d google pictures of middle eastern tank battles to get a feel of the look of such vehicles. Hard work for the vehicles and surprisingly wet at various points. Plenty of chips and polished bare metal tracks as it’s ex Russian. These have the best looking tracks.

That came up nice, what I would do from here is to add an enamel dust wash (assuming you've sealed it with an acrylic gloss finish). I used the one by Ammo of Mig, it's a thin enamel wash that I airbrushed a thin covering on to the various surfaces of the Challenger II I built. I then "stumped" it with a wide brush moistened with white spirit.
Apply it thinly and clean it back with the moist brush until you get the desired effect.

Thin down some Humbrol enamel something like Matt 103 with some white would do the job, you just need to get to it before it goes off too much, try it on some scrap plastic or the underside of the tank first until you get it right.

Not really, it's a different effect.

I've got some tamiya XF -57 Buff Enamel paint I could use or maybe AK interactive NATO rainmakes.

The Rainmarks would do, airbrush it on and then wipe it off with the damp brush until you get the desired effect. If you really thin the buff down that "should" also work.

Sure is looking dirty. I'd almost wipe some of it back as we're losing the base colour altogether, though it may just be the photos.
