    Soviet Paint Schemes WWII

    Some information concerning Soviet Paint Schemes using during the Second World War.  Smile


    "MEMO On camouflage of combat vehicles in winter conditions

    1. Type of paint.

    A chalk mixture is used in order to paint. During frost, use warm water to prepare it.
    Amount: approximately 1200 kg for a two regiment tank brigade, or 5-6 kg per vehicle.

    In cases where there is not enough chalk, it is possible to use slaked lime. Lumped lime is completely unsuitable for this task. Disadvantages of using lime: the paint will gradually turn brown, the lime acts as an irritant. Both types of paint can wash off, and are not resistant to snow and rain.

    2. Directions on application of camouflage paint.

    The order to paint is given out in the winter, right before the vehicles will be used. The order is given by the same unit that orders the use of combat vehicles.

    The painting is done by the crews themselves, as close as possible to headquarters (where warm water is available).

    Brushes used for washing cars may be used for painting, as well as any containers (buckets, etc). The time to paint a vehicle is 2-3 hours."
