WHat sort of camo? Tanks? INfantry?

I built a scale model of a Das Reich PzIIIM at Kursk from the regimental command section. Dark yellow with sparse, medium spots of green.

The Waffen SS infantry would likely be wearing 'Oak leaf' smocks and helmet covers summer-side out.

Plane tree and oak leaf patterns were both in production and in use in 1943.

Tanks, SPs and SPWs in standard dark yellow/green/red brown disruptive.

Das Reichs T34 battalion also sported lots and lots of very big balkan crosses.

I was referring to the infantry smocks. Thanks.
