HTK-BS22 British AFV paint set (WW2 European colours)
Standard colours of British vehicles in Europe from 1939 till 1945
During WW2 British Army vehicles in Europe were painted according to Army Council Instructions and Military Training Pamphlets. Generally two-greens camo (G4 over G3) and then two-browns camo (S.C.C. 1A over S.C.C. 2, result of shortage of ingredients used for green colours) were most commonly used from 1939 till 1943.
In October 1943 a blue-black colour (S.C.C. 14) was approved as a main shade over S.C.C. 2. From April 1944 S.C.C. 15 became the last war-period base colour of British AFV.
