What colors were Kriegsmarine trucks, transports, staff cars et. . . ? I have seen one Ople Blitz pic that appears apple greenish. Were they the same as Herr, or Luft vehicles? Any info would be helpful.

I think the most common color was Black blue or dark blue, as the name says a very dark blue tone.
Other possible colors, Feldgrau #2-3, olive green. The Wehrmacht used more green or brown camo
on their vehicles, especially on vehicles in front use. The Kriegsmarine had not such great need for camouflage.
