Re: Swift Boat Green Camo: What Color?
When I was at NSW Special Boat Squadron 1 we had Lcdr. who had served as a Seaman during Viet Nam and was assigned to Swift Boats.He said in answer to my question that they arrived in haze gray and were repainted for Market Garden.He was sent by his CO to borrow cans of olive drab from the Army.He said the Navy did eventually send paint but it took a long time to arrive.
The green used on Swift Boats in Vietnam: What color was used?
In looking at color pics, it looks as if it's OD 34079 or Medium Green 34102.
