Can anyone tell me if the Type 94 tankettes used by the SNLF were ever painted in IJN gray? I ask because the Type 94 in this photo sure looks dark, almost like German panzer gray. Japanese-SNLF-Type-94-tankette.jpeg

No, it was never painted in gray. It is in khaki.

Taki,

Thanks so much for your answer. Now, can you recommend a particular brand of paint in the correct khaki shade?

In Japanese military khaki, there were many kinds of shade. So, I cannot say which paint is correct.
