Any ideas on colors for:
German, British and US anti-tank guns in the following theatres:
-France, 1940
-Early Desert
-Sicily / Italy

The US are easy, Olive Drab!

I used to do way war German guns panzer grey, but Iirc they were actually RAL 6006 field grey. Late war they are the standard dunkelgelb and camo.

British gun colours are a mystery wrapped within an enigma, I usually do them some sort of green in Europe and light stone in the Desert. I do have a few 6pdrs in SCC2 brown with black disruptive though.
