Ex M.O.D. FMW tug.



I'm not a military vehicle expert, but I would like to know what would have been the official colour code (if possible) on an ex M.O.D. 1980 tug vehicle wheel, in order to restore as such. Taken a while to remove the filth in order to see the paint, so shade of green may have been tarnished slightly.

Many thanks.

I believe this would be High Gloss Deep Bronze Green BSC 381C No. 224. It was was not until late 1980 that NATO Green was even introduced into service & that was a matt finish. During the 1970s various interim matt paints were used mainly Olive Drab but there was no approved vehicle paint in that shade, what was used as a compromise was a War Equipment paint. This was unlikely to be something a manufacturer of vehicles would apply & besides your paintwork looks to be a gloss finish not matt.
