By this I mean it's far too British and you might have to be British to understand this.


American camo I get, they love flag waving and the whole singing the anthem at football(handegg) games.


But this shouty Jack, it's simply not British at all! We prefer understated; how about a pinstripe camo with a small union flag on the prow?
Classy, refined, elegant even, not this showy bravado; we don't need to shout, we just need to get our heads down, do our duty and prevail against the odds when it matters most, then head home for a cup of tea.

I absolutely agree. There's no way I'm putting that on my Warspite. The most British camo is the default paint job on Fiji - grey with a little flag on the back, just in case.

Perhaps a sort of flag draped over ones ship would be more subtle?

Battleships should be grey. This is why there is a paint called Battleship Grey, in case anyone thought they should be other colours. None of your Okt. Revska gaudy Soviet Constructivism around here, thank you.

When you're so afraid of your own bombers, you start painting your flag on your turrets.

It's only a little flag, again v understated, very "excuse me old chap, do you mind?" The Italian ships have to have massive Peppermint stripes half way down their hull to do the same job.

Since Brits never say what they mean, we might never know what you mean by what you're saying...

Actually, it's to prevent "friendly fire" incidents from our American allies.

So in essence, you think the Brit camo is too salty?

But it looks so dashing on French ships! :Smile_hiding:

Try putting it on a German ship in London port.

 

It's just wrong on so many levels.

Ships with that camo need to be blaring out rule Brittania!

 

Every time you get a kill the poor sod and you need to hear 'colonised!' in a unreal tournament style voice.

Myself I copied the colour values for the Lion permoflage over the ones for the Union Jack in camouflages.xml; it is quite a nice pattern in dark and light blue-greys.

I prefer military grey.
