In this topic you can suggest camouflage patterns for World of Tanks.

We would like to see your ideas on German, American, French, and British tanks. The necessary requirement is to provide link to the reference material - blueprint, scanned book, etc ie any sort of visual confirmation that this particular pattern was used (could be used) in real life. Apart from that don't forget to state the name / type (e.g. British / desert) of the camo, and post a brief description for it. You can add any relevant information as well.

Everyone is welcome to vote for the camos they like, using forum reputation system. Press green (plus) button, if you like the suggested pattern (it's not necessary to downrep those who posted camos that are not to your liking).  Don't abuse the system, please.

Best and the most popular camos will be added to the game in the updates to come.

Be clean and concise and no discussions here.  

Thanks for the help!

German Splinter Camo

Years : ?

Type : woodland
Spoiler                     

If you have better information on this please share, this is not an area of expertise of mine. (what sort of "reference" are we deeming as acceptable? technically a non-doctored photo is a "reference", however finding a specific camo, such as a military parade one, or a non-official field camo may be very difficult, even if hard evidence such as photos of it exist))

I would like to see the Ambush Paint Scheme from Kampfgruppe Peiper. It is one of my favorite Schemes for German armor. The new skins have a pattern that is similar, and maybe just needs tweeked?

I am not sure what to call the second scheme, but the Samur Tiger looks good in it as well,

I also like the Afrika Corps colors the bovington tiger is currently in too

It would be nice if there where some British desert camos such as the light blue and yellow camo of the Matilda II or the black and yellow camo of the Crusader III (no Idea what the real name of these camos where)

i like this camo (you stolen my idea lol xD)

German camo 44-45 “Ambush” Scheme

Heeres Memorandum No.181, dated 18 Feb 1943, standardized the overall basic colour for vehicles and equipment as a deep sand-yellow (dunkle gelb RAL 7028). From this date all new vehicles were to be supplied from the factory in this colour. Memorandum No.181 also introduced a new camouflage pattern painting system using two other colours, Olive green (olivgrun RAL 6003) and red brown (rotbraun RAL 8017). Supplied in 2kg tins, the paint was in a form of a thick paste, which could be thinned to the required consistancy by adding petrol or water.

Spoiler                     


Applied for any gun or by hand, the color was affected by the type and amount of diluent used. On the base color dunkle gelb, olivgrun rotbraun and were applied in spots, stripes or patterns depending on the chip ground crew and the crew preference.

(the colors have different shades due to thinner types different formats, type of terrain or preference of the crew)

- books Osprey (New Vanguard) and Concord Publishing (Armour at War). Both have B&W photos and colour plates.

I found this article a while back and this camo of a soviet T-34 looks similar to other snow camo but more swirly like wind effects.  Might look good on other nation tanks.  Dunno if the camo is period accurate but the tank is certinly around the WWII era.

Hi Overlord,

thx for this offer, I played in open beta with this camo. For public use just remove the little SS insignia. It's a very nice skin detailed with zimmerit effect.
But I would like to have a color palette too, with typical camo colors , your patterns and I can customize my own camo. I would also like to have the possibiblity to change brightness.

A great book for tank camouflage is in my opinion:

Terence Wise's

ISBN 1-85409-212-x

Given how the existing camouflage patterns show clear signs of being particularly slapdash about the UVW mapping to various panels of the tank -- take any of the 'stripe' patterns on the US M10 TD, where the stripes run horizontally on the hull but vertically on the turret (or vice versa), I don't think that we're going to see a Caunter pattern for British tanks; that would require a custom pattern map for each vehicle to be done right.

I posted this in another thread, but in Steven Zolaga's book on the M18 Hellcat, there's a nice color plate showing the tank destroyer in a black and olive drab camo scheme at the Anzio beachhead. I believe this camo pattern was also used on other US vehicles, although it wasn't very common. I'd use this scheme with all my American vehicles if it was available because it's simple, but sharp.

confused on the "was used (could be used) in real life" Could be used implies any other camo pattern that could be used on tanks? regardless if its dated to the period tanks?

love that Firefly camo where they are trying to hide the longer gun. Germans would shoot Fireflys on sight.

This thread is why I don't want to buy camo with the current system and be locked into something while they add more :/

I think just opening patterns to all nations and having a colour palette, would go a long way too creating diversity, with out having to come up with whole bunch of patterns/colour combination's.
Not that a few more patterns wouldn't be welcome.
