With a second Somua s35 complete, it's time to try out a set of comparison shots of the two camo schemes.
This second approach seems to be quite unique to the French vehicles. I have not seen this anywhere else in my research.
The most unusual version of this horizontal striped pattern saw the top color (mostly the turret), as completely painted in sky blue!
While this could be quite effective on the ground against troops in trenches, airborne assaults on a tank column like this would be quite dangerous, I think!
From here, it is on to some Renault tanks, which are even smaller.
Stay tuned! Lots more on the way!!!
