Pretty much what I thought. something on Yesterday during the week showed US M4's apparently cammoed with the turret and hull stars painted out in a darker colour - black as a supposition.

Yup. Although they were more common in Italy, my sources describe them as "air recognition panels".

Side stars painted out quite quickly after landing. Unit markings varied as replacement tanks came 'blank' as it were. For air recognition, (pink?) fluorescent cloth panels were used IIRC.

There were two colours of panel - orange or Yellow. Problem with those was that on lots of vehicles there was just no space to display them - carriers for instance often had a circled star on a plate to tie on top of the stowage.

It's an opportunity, not a SNAFU.

Think of the improved main gun elevation.
