HTK-BS23 RAF Photo Reconnaissance Units paint set
Standard colours of RAF P.R. aircraft from 1940 till 1945
Starting from instruction no A.926 (12/1940) aircraft of Photo Reconnaissance Units (P.R.U.) were to be coloured "in accordance with operational requirements", without the need to conform with general RAF standards. First P.R. planes wore overall Camotint Green. Later P.R. Blue (for high-alt missions, sanctioned from 10/1944) and P.R. Pink (for low-alt missions / low-clouds-base conditions) were used on most of P.R. planes, except for those operating in North Africa and Far East, which used overall Royal Blue instead (better suited for local conditions).
