Camouflage Painting Measures
22 - Graded System.
This measure is intended for use on combatant ships
in areas where bright weather with fair visibility predominates, and high
angle aerial observation is unlikely, and there is a likelihood of a gunnery
engagement. There will be some reduction of visibility when viewed
from low-flying planes, and from higher altitudes at extended ranges.
