Disruptive camouflage of the type shown on this German 10cm Kanone 1904 is well documented.  Examples of this type are on Landships own articles.  Also, a nearly identical 10cm K. 04 can be seen at the Belgium Army Museum with original camouflage.  There are many different variations of this camouflage and similar camo schemes were in service with many other nations involved in WWI, including the US two and three color camouflage schemes. In US service, the two color camouflage was not only called for in period manuals but was even applied in the manufacturing process.

German 10 cm Kanone 04 (Krupp)

Imaginative or historical camo? 600+ images on the link below, several of pre/WW1 items.

I think the pattern is reasonable but the colours are too bright. It's difficult to convey the palette of colours used but examples which have survived seem to be red-brown, dark (forest) green, ochre and Feldgrau. I think one should be careful interpreting surviving camouflage examples since inevitably the original paint will have dulled and darkened over the years.

Regards,

Charlie
