Default CH-47F Paint Color

I am getting ready to start my Italieri CH-47D in 1/48th scale and my plan is to depict it as a newer CH-47F. Externally, the aircraft are very similar. Internally, the F Model has more powerful engines, some electrical upgrades, and a modernized cockpit with multiple MFD's replacing the old analog equipment. It's the paint scheme that makes the two versions of the aircraft so very different. After doing some research, I found that the new paint applied to the F Model is FS34201 (Woodland Desert Sage). Overall, the color is tan that leans heavily towards the gray-green tone. According to the Army Aviation Applied Technology Directorate this monocoat paint solution is a cost effective compromise color scheme that provides adequate aerial camouflage in desert and vegetated terrains.

I'm thinking I'll have to mix the colors because I suspect this new FS number isn't available to the modeling community just yet.
