I have a bunch of Type 99A tanks to paint up for my modern PLA Chinese force. I'm not interested in doing the digital camo but found some pictures of a camo scheme they use with an ochre-colored base. Can anyone recommend a rattle can spray to match that color?

For reference:

Krylon has multiple different camo colors one of the light greens and the tan color work.

The khaki, sand and woodland light green are all good matches.

I've used all three colors, and they look pretty close to me.

The colors are the same whether It's digital camo or not. Nice looking tank. I like how the ERA goes on smoother and less bumpy than Russian ones.

Thanks for the suggestions – I think I am covered!
