Re: RLM 64 and the Junkers Ju 52???

On the other hand it could have been plain ol' 70 or 71. It should be noted that many of the Bf 109 Ds also had a single dark green top color.

Perhaps it was the need to get the aircraft out in the field ASAP. Perhaps the Ju 52s were quick over paints of the 61/62/63 scheme. This was commonly done to the HS 123 which quite frequently was seen in a single green when committed to combat.

I am of the persuasion that a nation going to war does not use a special color when there were other greens to choose from. 71 would have done the job quite nicely.
