I am trying to model a panther 8.8 as in the game.   I am trying to figure out what color they are.   Its way to light for actual German Panzer gray, that's almost black.   I am looking for a Tamiya spray color.    I think IJN Kure might work.

Panthers were introduced after Panzer grey was replaced by Earth Yellow. Some late war 1945 tanks were left primer red as a basecoat with yellow or green bits added

Well I mean in game.  The gray WG uses on its German tanks is super light, far too light for real dunkelgrau.

Good luck with that. Probably made up by a coder in Minsk. Try battleship grey.

In my opinion the color that appears in the game would be Tamiya's XF-54.

I can't remember if Tamiya makes a USN dark ghost gray. It's in the orbit of what WOT uses.

 

Here's a handy link to a color chart on britmodeler. Tamiya paints are notorious for not matching their packaging. This fella actually sprayed the paint on plastic chips and created his own color chart. Pretty handy stuff.

Why not apply one of the in-game camouflages and make that model?

Testors FS36076 Panzer Grey

 

I wish the designers went with Dunkelgelb instead of the grey for the game.
