Nothing you could call generic. But I believe Plane tree was the most common.

Heres a good article, although I cant vouch for its veracity.

A type 1 Plane Tree smock will do the job for the vast majority of the war. Type 1's do not have the pockets or the foliage loops.

1942 I believe was when the introduction of loops and pockets, removal of slash vents occured.

The original poster asked for a generic camo though. '44 pea dot limits you to......'44 onwards right?
What happens if the airsoft game is set in 1941?
I dont think you would be turned away in pea dot but you would look better in a smock?
The £40 dot from Epic looks like the Sturm stuff?
It only has 4 of the real deals 5 colours. It's missing one of the greens. Plenty of people wear it but it's not exactly correct.
