Vehicle Paint Scheme Overview in Update 1.10.2

With the release of the minor Update 1.10.2 last week we added an additional number of new vehicle paint jobs for all three factions – 10 vehicle paint jobs to be excact!

Read on if you want to look your best when winning battles!

The following vehicles got new paint jobs in this minor update.



SOVIET VEHICLES
Update 1.10.2 brought Paint schemes for the victory tank, the powerful T-34-85 Model 1944, as well as one for the T-26 light tank and the first one for the Ba-6 recon vehicle.

Kutuzov Two Tone
The Kutuzov is a field painted disruptive pattern camouflage consisting of red-brown patches painted on top of the green factory paint.
The green and red-brown colors proved especially effective in the muddy environment during the Kharkov offensive in May 1942, but also provided an excellent camouflage in thick forests throughout the summer.

Vasyugan Light
During the Autumn of 1944 the Red Army is on the offensive and a camouflage pattern suited for an army on the move was required.
The Vasyugan Light consisted of a dense layer of random yellow patches painted on top of the green factory paint.
The light color and web-like pattern of the green color made this a perfect camouflage for rolling through open fields and as well as hiding in the forest.


GERMAN VEHICLES
For the Germans, this update added the second vehicle paint to the Panther (Panzer V) and the Panzer II Ausf. C and the first paint job for the SdKfz 222 recon vehicle.

Paint Scheme: Light Olive
The Light Olive, also known as Dark Yellow or “Dunkelgelb” became the standard factory color in October 1942, replacing the Dark Grey which was previously used as a base.
Contrary to what one might think, the Dunkelgelb did not originate as a color for desert warfare, but rather a color that would blend into agricultural environments.
The new lighter color also made it easier to paint camouflage over the vehicles using darker colors to make them fit in with the specific environment in which the vehicle was used.

Paint Scheme: Ambush DB
The other German paint scheme is called Ambush DB, and more vehicles will be available in this paint setup in the future.
In August 1944 the German army was on the defensive and a new camouflage was needed to better allow vehicles to lie in wait for an approaching enemy. The solution was an “Ambush” pattern or “Hinterhalt-Tarnung”. This consisted of a green and red-brown paint being applied on to the base layer of dark yellow paint.
This was to be done at the factory so that the vehicle would be ready to fight as soon as it rolled out of the assembly line.
The factory accomplished a very effective Ambush camouflage by applying random green and brown patches on the vehicle, and then applied smaller spots of yellow on top of these.
These small spots gave the illusion of sunlight passing through tree leaves, which made the Ambush DB pattern especially effective for vehicles hiding in the forest.


US VEHICLES
The US uses two main paint jobs – the Ardennes Four Color and the Olive Drab and Black. In this minor update the Sherman Easy 8 Medium tank, the ‘Jumbo’ Sherman Heavy tank and the M8 Greyhound recon vehicle got a paint job each.

Ardennes Four Color
Prior to 1944 the US had no standard guidelines for vehicle camouflage, and it was up to the individual unit to paint the vehicles as they deemed necessary.
Some units would use the experiences gained by their British ally and use a black and white outline to accentuate the contrast between two colors.
The Ardennes camouflage consist of dark green patches on the factory olive drab paint. The white and black outline creates a higher contrast between the two colors without making either of them stand out.
This creates a camouflage that is effective in mountain areas as well as in forest.

Olive Drab and Black
In April 1944 the US Army released the Field Manual 5-22B which contained guidelines to how to properly apply camouflage to vehicles.
It instructed soldiers in the field to apply patches of black paint over the factory olive drab color.
The black patches should cover all sharp corners to distort the silhouette of the vehicle.

Are you still missing YOUR favorite vehicle? Fear not, more vehicle paint jobs are on their way.
