In between imo, but definitely not turquoise. I'd say blue(ish), since Chinese and Japanese tanks are 'real' green imo.

It's a shade of blue definitely. Something like teal blue or something.

Fun little modding story. I have a bunch of paint colours saved (a lot of them not my own, though most of those are German) and when I started modding paints I was trying to replace them with rough historical colours. One of the Italian colours I had was "Grigio-Verde Scuro", from this image:

Spoiler

 

That colour actually appears completely wrong, as literally the image next to it on Google is this, which shows it as a more Grey-Green and searching "Grigio-Verde Scuro" matches it, not to mention it makes more sense considering the name. ANYWAY, the point of the story is that "incorrect" colour almost perfectly matches the French base colour. So yeah, I'm going with blue. :P

When you look at this close up photograph of an AMX 13 at a museum it looks more Green (so in the poll I went for Greenish-Blue);

Blue in my opinion. A quite dark blue, that under certain lights can look greenish, but certainly blue!

Greenish-blue, like the mould you find in their cheeses.

 

Speaking of a tank blew up a cheese factory in France. De-brie was everywhere.

 

 

 

 

 

I'll see myself out :hiding:

To show the listed colour for French vehicles in the game files (left), and also add to my first post (the colour on the right is the "Grigio-Verde Scuro" colour I have saved). Arguably in hindsight could've made the image slightly bigger but hey, it works. Oh and, it's slightly more blue than green, so yeah. :izmena:

I did also a color sampler test in Photoshop with the French base paint in the garage (where you paint your tank). You do that and tell me again what you find, although one friend told me it was a bad way to decide what color it is by RGB, since RGB doesn't contain a number for yellow so you can't even for example determine how yellow the duck tank is.

It is green. There is a touch of 'blue' in it, but not enough to call it blue.
