What was the source of the grey trousers you always see on the Internationals German Paratrooper?

maybe it was a reference to field grey ,the same as the helmet ??? or a mix up in hong kong where the uniforms where made field grey= grey , I remember having that set as a kid and it was deffo grey trousers ,that's my best guess ,also as the falschirmjeager where actually a german airforce regiment as opposed to a whermacht or heer regiment their uniorm was a blue /grey or field grey colour ,over time may of turned grey as they where woollen ,in the north African campaigh and crete and Greece they where usually tan and heavy cotton

The Action Man grey paratrooper trousers are identical in colour to the Luftwaffe pilot trousers, but are slightly different in design as I don't think they have pockets. I have not managed to find any for my paratrooper yet so am not 100% sure of the details.

Thanks Gents.

I thought I was missing something (besides pants). They definitely look to be the same gray color as the helmet. I just could not place what outfit they my have come from.
