D.A.K. Profile Guide book. AK 271
D.A.K. Profile Guide portrays the colours and camouflage of German vehicles used by the Deutsche Afrika Korps and their colour variants throughout the war. The book looks at German Army vehicle colours for the African campaign, including the European Dark Grey (RAL 7021). The coverage continues to the original camouflage colours: Yellow-Brown RAL 8000 with Green-Gray spots RAL 7008 (in 1941), Yellow-Brown RAL 8020 and Sand Gray RAL 7027, used from 1942.
There is a selection of Italian vehicles, often forgotten, which fought alongside the Germans. This is supplemented by the addition of Allied vehicles serving with the Axis troops, with some curious American halftracks with distinctive German markings. Over 170 profiles cover schemes from the most common camouflage to the most original and unusual vehicles used by the DAK and Regio Esercito, including major artillery pieces used in Africa.
