  • Is this different from gunmetal grey?

  • Yes, battleships are painted, gunmetal is not.

    According to MW3, "battleship gray" is "a nearly neutral slightly bluish medium gray that is darker than pearl--called also Denver" and "gunmetal" or "gunmetal gray" is "a nearly neutral, slightly purplish dark gray that is darker and slightly redder than steel gray".
