Color of Russian AT missile casing?

Hi all
I noticed that most of the current Russian AT missiles casings are not plain green. As I’m color blind it’s impossible to me to guess what color they are. Moreover no manufacturer gives any color indication in the instructions.

So what could be a good match, preferably in the Tamiya range?
TIA

Hi Olivier

In Zvezda GAZ-233014 Tigr with Kornet-D ATGM kit instructions the missile casings are painted Sand (Humbrol 83) . So Tamiya XF-57 should fit the bill…But I guess it depends on the carrier base color .

Perhaps Mr Hobby H58. Russian ammo container colours always look a bit off.

Looks like the casing comes is available in various colors…

I guess these are mock-ups

Almost 20 years ago, I was trained to become AT Missile operator during my army service. We operated with AT3 Sagger which were Russian green and pale blue (training ones). We also had Fagot missiles which were mustard yellow, very similar to panzer gelb. These were man operated ones. Saggers mounted on vehicles were of the same color.
Hope this helps!

Mustard yellow is probably the color I was thinking about.
