You can paint tier 6,8,9,10 but not 7. 

You want my money and I want to paint my Panther.

Who green lighted this anyway??

For that matter why restrict paint at all? If someone wants to spend real $$ to paint their lollytractor they should be allowed to.

Paint section shows just fine for me at tier 7, but I have so many other bugs it would not surprise me if you didnt have one.

I think they did in in order of popularity/ use in strongholds they started with 10 then 8 ect... tier 7 should be next when ever they care to do it (It shouldn't be that hard idk why its taking so long)

You can apply camouflage at tier VII but there is no option yet for paint. 

The two are not the same thing and paint does not give a visibility reduction bonus.

I'm pretty sure I read that paint on your hull gives you the camo bonus same as regular camo.

Nope, double checked it. That is a misconception that paint offers a bonus, to the hull or any other part of the tank.

Mouse over the paint menu in your garage and you will see the description says "Paint changes the default vehicle color."

Do the same with camouflage and it reads "Camouflage modifies the vehicle's exterior and provides a bonus to concealment."

 

In spite of this, it is surprising how many people believe the paint gives a bonus. It may change in the future but up to now, it has been purely cosmetic.
