MAP Mid Stone Guide:
- MAP Middle Stone is a sandy color with a distinct mustard tint that was widely used for desert aircraft camouflage.
Middle Stone was first used in the RAF Tropical Land camouflage scheme along with Light Earth in accordance with AMO A.926/40 of December 12, 1940. The lower surfaces of the aircraft under this camouflage scheme were to be painted Sky or Sky Blue.
- Later, according to AMO A.513/41 of July 10, 1941, Light Earth was to be replaced by Dark Green in the Tropical Land Scheme. This did not last long, however, as it was due to a mistake, and corrections were soon issued replacing Dark Green with Dark Earth.
- Middle Stone was also used in the RAF Desert scheme, introduced under AMO A.664/42 on July 2, 1942. This scheme involved camouflaging the upper surfaces with Dark Earth and Middle Stone, and the lower surfaces with Azure Blue (or Special Night for night operating aircraft).
- Note, however, that American aircraft delivered to the MTO under the lend-lease program (e.g., P-40, Baltimore, etc.) may have been painted directly at the factory with American 71-069 Middle Stone paint, which differs from the UK counterpart.
