Yellow Brown RAL 8000

Yellow Brown RAL 8000

Yellow Brown RAL 8000, later Green Brown RAL 8000, the base colour for large equipment of the German Afrikakorps introduced by Army Directive No. 281 of March 17, 19411. Disruptive patches of Grey Green RAL 7008 were to be sprayed over ⅓ of the base colour, but the vehicles were often just painted a monochrome yellow brown. In view of the difficult supply situation during the campaigns in North Africa, captured desert yellow paints2 like B.S.C. № 61 »Light Stone« or B.S.C. № 64 »Portland Stone« were also used by the Wehrmacht.
