Response to Early (DAK) 5th Light color

I have doubts the DAK used Italian paint, as they too did not have a proper desert vehicle paint until it was decided upon March 18, 1941 - a day after Wehrmacht regulation for tropical paint was passed. The difference here, the German paints chosen were already in existence for civilian use (8000 commuter train wagons for example, and 7008 from steel building construction - per Tomas Chory).

In the publication WORKHORSE Panzer III in North Africa, the statement is made that within 3 weeks of arrival, most tanks would have received some coating of RAL 8000.
