Handwriting to decipher

Attached is an extract from a conference note of 29 August 1940. The typed bit of the second paragraph is fine, it's the two added words I'm stuck on:
The run-in to bomb release and the departure afterward must take place as closed-up as possible, for effective protection by fighters and the exploitation of concentrated firepower.

For the avoidance [something, something] of the recognition paint, more frequent change is required.
Can anyone read those two words?

P.S. This comes from Reel T-2415 of the Canadian Department of National Defence microfilms.

I think you’re right about the “Ver …” but the the horizontal stroke over the first word suggests to me that it has a “u” in it.

Thanks, I'd never have seen that — you just increased my German vocabulary! (Nachahmung = forgery)
