I was wondering what camo the initial tigers for the Pz.Abt. 502 had

Well, they were Dunkelgrau on arrival at the front, although they look lighter in photos due to the dust from their long journey.

As the winter set in, they were given a crude camouflage scheme using whitewash stripes and patches with the original Dunkelgrau.

In the Spring, those that survived were sometimes coated completely with mud.
