Do any of you have evidence or thoughts on what color the 59, 60, & 61 (primarily the later) gunboats had the 40mm Bofors, and the BMG's painted?

I'm sure that at least some of the BMGs (stand and shield) were painted to the gunboat's color bunt am unsure that a field paint job was applied to the barrel and receiver.

As for the 40mm Bofors, if the whole gun was basically an Army gun modified to sit on the riser on the deck, was the whole gun repainted?

Hope someone has a good answer. Thanks, Lew
