Has anyone tried using the following paint for their West German, Bundeswehr armor?

Vallejo Model Color Yellow Olive 70.892 Rack position #87

Looks like a good match to me for West German Gelboliv, on the computer monitor, but that can sometimes be misleading.

It is a good match in person

For smaller scale models I'd lighten it a bit. Gelb olive is dark, but not that dark. Irl the vehicles are distinctly dark green.

Thanks for the confirmation, and suggestion.

I suspect the darkness of the Leos above is due to lighting for the photo, and not the paint, since in the bottle, it looks considerably lighter than shown above.
