Re: Swift Boat Green Camo: What Color?
While not a PCF, the boat manual for the PBR MK2 calls for Marine Green 23. I suspect they used the same stuff while in the rivers.
Depends on the time period. I have used "Marine Corps Green", FS 34052, for riverine craft, looks relatively close. But I have seen photographs of riverine craft that were painted a lighter shade of green.
Swifts used in Operation Market Time, early in the conflict, were painted overall modern haze gray.
