    Research to me shows a lot of so called plane tree, a few blurred edge, and some palm pattern especially in history book "Kursk the vital 24 hours"by Will Fowler is one that has a lot of period photo's if you are familiar with collector terms describing SS cammo. There are others I have looked at but that one comes to mind. timothy

    You are mostly going to see the Plane tree variants around this time.
    Edit: Also some Oak A was in that time and Palm

    The last photo you can see a nice example of what looks like oak A or B on the soldat in the middle, most look to be plane tree 5/6th
