The term is used in the United Kingdom with reference to fleet management of the Ministry of Defence's vehicular assets. The term arises from the olive green colour of military vehicles for camouflage reasons, although green fleet vehicles could be of any colour (such as vehicles in desert camouflage or red RAF fire engines). Green fleet vehicles carry military registration numbers, unlike civilian registered white fleet vehicles.
