bordering colour
Explanation:
"Absatz" in this context (as I understand it) means the borders and surrounds of the vehicle in question. Hence, the expression, "Absatzfarbe" is the colour used for the borders and surrounds, in this case dark grey. Most of the vehicles were painted mainly in light grey, with some parts (see above) in dark grey.

I initially considered 'accent color' as well. You answer is reassuring. I was uncertain of using that term because of the use of Abstazfarbe in dialogue boxes is the text color. I was having trouble verifying whther it is the color of the accents on a ship or the color of the numbering/ naming on the ship. Vielen Dank fuer Ihre Unterstutzung!
