HTK-AS22 “British AFV paint set (WW2 European colours)”
During WW2 British Army military vehicles in European Theatre were painted according to Army Council Instructions and Military Training Pamphlets. Generally two-green colors camo (G4 over G3) and then two-brown colors 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-time base colour of British tanks.
