Trumpeter AVGP colour question

So I just finished the Trumpeter Cougar (improved) kit ...and I am about to paint...but the colour chart refers to tamiya XF20 as a light green....and the Tamiya charts say XF20 is grey... and some people have suggested that Tamiya Nato Green is the choice...but that colour works for LAV III and newer vehicles (Leopards, TAPV...) but the green I see in photos is lighter....

Any help / suggestion would be appreciated....

I found this site:http://ipmsrealcote.pro-forums.org/t832-tamiya-mixes-for-some-fs-colors-full-up-to-date-list-in-english

They say AVGP repaint should be 3 parts XF67 Nato green to 2 parts XF59 Desert Yellow...anybody tried this?

Late AVGP Colour

They were painted in NATO CARC Green, and a 100% colour match is Tamiya NATO Green. But, for scale will have to lighten it up with Tamiya BUFF, or some Field Green to get the proper scale colour.

If you have anymore questions you can contact me anytime, I have lots of reference.

those are some pretty complex mixes

from the web link..some of those mix ratios are fairly involved.

If Tamiya NATO Green isn't "scale" enough for you, cut it 50% with Field Grey (XF65). Note, its not a grey at all:
