Wich Humbrol colour does fit best for Abrams. Possible a mix?

And is there difference between the sand colour of both desert storm and Iraq-invasion?

I think that the colour may be H250 AFTA pink or similar which the British adopted after the U S Army started to use it. But I may be wrong

OK a bit of research throws up: I am wrong on the pink. Colour is FS33531 CARC Middlestone. Which is Vallejo 71075. An earlier colour in use is suggested as FS33446 which is a little darker and very slightly more red 33530. These look as if Humbrol 94 with H121 added, more in 33551 than the other might work. Haven't run any tests so cannot provide ratios or whether these will even work
