Hello,

 

I've finished the STUG IV mission and I've received the tank destroyer along with 2 bonus camouflages in my inventory for each season.

 

1. What is the purple brush meaning in the top left corner ? Since all the other camos don't show this icon, either is default camo or reward camo from other missions.

2. While I received 2 camos in inventory, when I try to place them on a tank destroyer it show 2 in inventory and I can place them without any cost. But if I open another tank type (medium, heavy, etc) it show that I have none in inventory and if I place 2 on hull and turret it shows that I have to pay 100 gold. Why it shows in inventory this camo only for tank destroyers ?

 

I've attached images for example:

1. I believe it's to indicate reward camo.

 

2. Working as intended. If you complete all missions in a set, you get the reward tank and its camo. If you complete all missions with honours, you unlock that camo for use on other vehicles of the same nation as the reward tank but it's treated the same as any other camo pattern, you still have to pay for it.

That's how it is.  You can use it on the reward tank for free or buy it to use on any other tank.

1. But the first two camos are also reward camos and doesn't have that purple brush.

2. Got it. But I can use it on other tank destroyers, only on medium, heavy can't be used.

1. They are gift camos, not reward camos. Incredibly minor point but the only reason I can fathom why they don't have a purple brush.

 

2. No idea about that. I've got the same camo and it's available for me to put on my German heavies, although I bought some extra for the depot when camos were last on sale so I've got it in stock.

that purple thing means its special camo, similar marking is used on improved equipment for bonds.  

On the second picture it seems its available on VK though?

1: Purple brush is to indicate it's the reward camo from the campaign. Other reward camos don't have that. It's just the campaign reward camo. As that is locked to a nation, the other reward camo is not.

2: The two on the Stug is locked to the Stug. That's the camo you get for free on the reward tank. It can't be moved to a different tank. Thus to get that on your other German tanks, you need to buy it. The camo on the reward tank is given once you do 75 missions. The camo for the other tanks is unlocked once you do 75 with honors. Thus they are two separate sets if you will.

OP's completed all the StuG missions with honours, otherwise that camo wouldn't show as an option for any other tanks. I suspect we're back to where we came in, that OP's put the free camo on his StuG but hasn't twigged that he has to pay to use it on another tank.

It's pretty clear everything now.

 

1. It's a reward camo and not a gift one. That why is the purple brush.

2. It's free in stock only for Stug with which it came being unlocked. For other tanks should be bought even if it's in stock.
