painted blue/grey? on mirage 2000

Blue grey so as to reduce contrast with lo-vis camo. White is 60s and 70s, overall blue was training round (now also grey) and I am not certain about red but pretty confident it was inert.

Red/orange rounds are usually seen during trials, to make them more visible to observers watching the trial.
