British Greens

It seems that British tanks after the Great War were painted in green-but what type of green?  During World War Two and later, the British varied their base colors quite a bit.  There was SCC15 later in the war, then Deep Bronze Green in the 1950's and 1960's, then NATO Green and black in the 1970's.  So I assume some other green color I never heard of would have colored the tanks during the Russian Civil War.  I thought of doing a Mark V tank kit as the first Russian (as opposed to Soviet) tank force.

Are you sure the Mark Vs sent to Russia weren't brown? They seem to have come from stocks held at Erin in France.

Did the Whites set up tank units? Most of the texts read as if the Bolsheviks acquired them after they were abandoned

by the British when they withdrew.

I've read that Bronze-Green was the colour of 1920s armour - this is colour #223 of BS381 (http://www.e-paint.co.uk/BS381%20Colourchart.asp)

Charlie

I admit I'm not sure; the authors of the Osprey book on White forces weren't absolutely sure either.

The Osprey books on RCW armor do mention some of the armored units of the White and Red armies.
