I am starting to do the interior of the cab and can not decide what color to use, I mostly have Vallejo paint but i have some other paint but not sure which one matches the real color.

Instructions say medium grey green (312). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Happy modeling

The closest paint color to US Army interior Sea Foam Green is Tamiya's XF-21 Sky.

Krylon Pistachio in the big spray can is an exact match to US interior seafoam green as well.

Thanks guys,

I got another question, I thought I would post it here instead of another post,

I am looking for the TM Manuals for the M270A1 MLRS. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

The closest match I've found is Ammo of Mig's APC Interior Green. I add a couple drops of white to lighten more.
Looking up the NSN of the real paint, it goes by couple different names depending on manufacturer. I've found it listed as Pale Green and Pastel Green.
