HTK-BS88 Early WW2 German AFV paint set
Since 1923 majority of vehicles of German Reichswehr were painted in 3-colour camouflage of Erdgelb, Grün and Braun. Those were standardised in 1933 according to RAL system and were later known as RAL 8002, 6007 and 8010 (according to RAL 840R standard). Auxiliary vehicles (passenger cars, motorcycles, etc.) wore RAL 6006 Feldgrau colour. In 1937 a new 2-colour pattern (low contrast) of RAL7021 Dunkelgrau and RAL 7017 Dunkelbraun (both colours from greys palette) was introduced, simplified in 1940 into overall RAL7021 Dunkelgrau. According to many sources use of Dunkelbraun was however not as common as expected. During first winter operations on the Eastern Front (1941/42), temporary white paint was introduced and widely used.
