Camouflage Measure 31a, Design 6B
Drawing prepared by the Bureau of Ships for a camouflage scheme intended for the battleship Nevada (BB-36).
This plan, approved by Captain Torvald A. Solberg, USN, is dated 14 October 1944. It shows the ship's starboard side, exposed decks and other horizontal surfaces, and the ends of her superstructure, gun mounts and turrets.
Nevada wore this pattern in late 1944 and the first months of 1945.
