Early (DAK) 5th Light color

When the 5th light was first ship to Africa their tanks, trucks, ect. were still painted Panzer Grey. Not long after some/most was semi repainted in another color (according to photos). It looked like a hasty job. What color was this? Available Italian sand? I think this would have been before RAL 8000/7008 became official.
Some photos show recon units in mud, but the tanks had a different color.

What did most of them use?

    1. Wasn't the mud used mostly on the Aufkl. units? - Robert Lockie on Jun 4, 2017, 12:52 AM
