British AAC Helicopters Set (Blue Line Acrylic) Hataka BS87
BLUE LINE – OPTIMISED FOR BRUSH
Standard colours of Army Air Corps aircraft since 1970s
Since early 1970s the Army Air Corps (AAC) used several painting schemes on its helicopters fleet. Initial BS Olive Drab + Black scheme was used well into 1990s, when a new scheme of BS Olive Green + BS Medium Sea Grey was introduced. The latter is still in use on Lynx AH.7/9s and Bell 212s, parallel to US Army Helicopter Drab (FS34031) used on Apache AH.1 fleet. The new AW159 Wildcat (Lynx Wildcat) feature the scheme (shared with Royal Navy airframes) of BS Medium Sea Grey + BS Dark Sea Grey. This paint set also covers the Operation Granby (1991 Gulf War) period, in which several field-improvised camouflage schemes (with use of BS Light Stone and / or FS30279) were applied onto Lynx AH.7s and Gazelle AH.1s.
