That's a military desert sand color. Generally first seen on MOD Land Rovers in Iraq.

As for paint code....hmmm not sure there is on. Check military surplus vendors. That said Rustoleum does a Matt sand color in its camo range
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.

I did Jeep Sahara Tan. it is NOT matt, but it turned out great. FYI only. PPG paint but a Mopar paint code. The paint shop might be able to do it least you'd have a color you could find trivially down the road.
