The heavy German tank that was purchased by the Japanese was never to leave Europe. A photo from German printed media is all that remains of the vehicle.

Please actually research before positing such articles... It's embarrassing to read articles with so many faults in it.

I'll be correcting this persons article  soon.

 

And no, it wasn't green. Just the normal JPN tree colour placed on.

There's an article somewhere on the web about German military colours, and although they are often seen as grey [Dunkelgrau Nr. 46 (dark grey)], there was a second colour [Graugrün RAL 7008 (grey-green)] that they used which was more green. Finally there was Olivgrün RAL 6003 (olive green). But by the time of the Normandy invasion the Germans were in a period of flux, between factory camouflage and paint supplied to local maintenance units for application by them, so in the field some tanks might have very little paint covering primer, some might have factory complex camo patterns, and some might have locally applied colours.

 

The Japanese meanwhile used different colours and camouflage patterns on their tanks.

 

So unless there is some document about the colour painted onto the Japanese purchase, it could be pretty much any colour scheme including one that had a local adaptation while in France.

 

Lots of photos in a rita article about it here;

http://ritastatusrep...tion-plans.html

 

and you can see in one of them there is a photograph of a tank (may be a Tiger of some kind) being inspected by a Japanese Officer that tank has Zimmerit painted on it.

If nazis was racists, why they was allies with Bulgarians (Slavist) Romanians (Slavist too) Finnish (North barbarians) and Japanese (Yellow lower race)? Nazis was ONE time idiots because they was liers about racism, and neonazis are TEN times idiots to continue beleive those liers suiciders!

 

[edited] Bulgarians are slavic (not slavist, they are a part of the slavic people not slavists), romanians are part of the latin peoples, Finns barbarians? Really?

You shouldn't write about things you don't know. Bulgarians are not Slavic, they were Bulgar (tatar) tribe which came to Balkans adopting from local Slavic tribes language and culture. Romanians are decendants of Dacian and Thracian tribes who were romanized when Roman empire occupied thier land. And finally Finish has language which has the same origin as Hungarian. And where have you found that Nazis considered Japs as lower race?
