Hi Everyone,

Were disruptive pattern used Greek Campaign and were any Italian tanks sent to North Africa and fought in European livery?

I assume base coat in 1940 in the Balkans was olive green, but welcome any info…

According to the paint guides in Benghazi Handicap, all the Italian vehicles were shipped to NA in dark green and repainted in theatre (or not, in the case of the M13/40s shipped in January 41)

Later in the war they arrived in green-ochre or khaki sand.

I'd be surprised if the tanks used in Greece weren't in European colour schemes, all the other Italian vehicles used in the Balkans were. Generally red brown disruptive over green (notable exception being the L6s in Russia which shipped desert sand).
