I finally got around to looking at the alternate Royal Navy camo I got for Gallant with sovereigns in the Arsenal. I had to take a double take as I thought I failed to mount the alternate one and left the standard tyoe 10 camo it comes with. :Smile_amazed:

Nope. They are almost 100% identical (same basic scheme/pattern and base color). Only difference would be the green on the standard type 10 is a lighter blend while the alternate Royal Navy camo has slightly darker greens. A splotch here or there may be a little bigger/smaller but it is same shape and location. 

I mean come on LOL. At least do a different pattern. :Smile_facepalm::Smile_smile::Smile_teethhappy:

You be the judge....:Smile_amazed:

Is it at least some historical artifact of the UK making minor color changes to the camo scheme that can be blamed?

Yeah, I was worried since there was no preview of it. Decided to wait and see if someone else got it, lol. Thank you for taking one for the team though. :Smile_honoring:

Still, this is kind of a cheapo' thing to do. A bit on the lazy side here WG.

Yeah I was surprised it was that similar. I was hoping for something a bit different. I like to change camo's now and then for a different look. Not happening with this pair of camos LOL unless I want to tell myself it's sage green vs pine green ROFL. :Smile_teethhappy:

The section of green that bisects the '5' on the pennant number is shifted aft on the new one, so the whole pennant H59 is on one color.

That might be intended to make it stand out more, but it's an odd single change.

 

I prefer the brighter green of the original camo either way.

No, as far as I'm aware Gallant was never even camouflaged. The camouflage she carries in game is that of HMS Grenade, specifically in 1940. That particular camouflage is also not an 'official' scheme, the paint used to create it was simply what was to hand at the time. There weren't really any guidelines like that for warship camouflage in the Royal Navy and it was more down to the captain of the individual ship as to how exactly it was painted. This isn't always the case but it did happen.

Oh dear. If WG was so lazy they might as well have just given Gallant her historical overall gray paint scheme, with the funnel band of course. Thanks for the warning.

You know where to download it if you want it. Though I need to check if it's still working for the current update first.

Thanks but I wish it was an official skin. Appreciate your hard work though. It's too bad WG doesn't bother with a revenue share program like what War Thunder has, because you ought to be on their paylist.

It is what it is, not much we can do about that

interesting, so it would  have been historically accurate for WG camo modellers for WOWS, to choose whichever colour was closest to their mouse pointer...

I'll trade mark that idea :Smile_teethhappy:

I don't know if it's historical or not, but one of the camo Hood has is a plain gray scheme.  I've grown to like it more and more.  She looks real nice in it, IMO.

It's pretty accurate, colour is a bit off but they're on the right lines with that one. I still personally think she looks best in her lighter 507C pattern from the mid-late 1930s, she's absolutely gorgeous in that colour.

A much better return on investment, about the same Sovs for 50% more doubloons, or a T6 BB which is worth more than a T6 DD.
