HTK-BS77 BLUE LINE – Modern British Army & RAF AFV paint set



Standard colours of British military vehicles since 1950s

After the end of WW2 British forces continued to use S.C.C. No. 15 Olive Drab as a base overall colour (except for desert areas where Light Stone was used). After 1955 the new colour – No. 24 Deep Bronze Green in gloss finish – was introduced. The next change was implemented in late 1971 with NATO Green becoming a base colour with black disruptive shapes applied over it (although some vehicles were left in overall green). Middle / Near East operations required use of desert camouflage of overall Light Stone or with first Deep Bronze Green and then NATO Green disruptive pattern. Light Stone was used by the Army both during Op Granby (overall colour) and Op Telic (with NATO Green), while RAF vehicles featured pinkish Desert Sand (and later virtually the same BS381C:380) paint.
