Agusta new green (Informations 1st Wing)

The Belgian Air Force Agusta fleet will receive a new green paint scheme. 
No big changes planned, only a standardization to match with the NH-90 TTH fleet. But the new color is quite different as the former one worn by the Italian made helicopter.
This is not a RAL (Reichsausschuß für Lieferbedingungen ) or FS (Federal standard) green, but a local fabrication. 
The biggest difference with the former green is that the color has a more matt / satin finish. Each helicopter will be painted during their overhaul and the first one to wear his new feathers is the H27.
