Can anyone tell me why the combat planes wear the actual cammo paterns?? Why Nato planes uses "Air Superiority" Grey and why the Russians uses that blue for the Flankers??

And If the F/A-22 have to destroy the enemy in BVR why they wear the grey cammo?? and why not a Blood red or lemon yellow??

I don't understand anything in russian except Davai Davai!

Why would you -not- paint your aircraft in camo?

Anything that makes the aircraft harder to see decreases the enemy's chances of spotting and attacking it. Camo helps the aircraft dissapear - blend in with the sky at shorter distances than normal.

And being a BVR fighter is no excuse to pass up any sort of low-observability treatment when its easy and cheap to apply.

 

Besides which, the F-22 is an EXCELLENT WVR fighter.

Yeah until that turkey gets sucked up as FOD...

 

ROFL! :biggrin:

 

The reason for green cammo only in Brazil's airforce is because right now there is not a plane there to paint air superiority shemes on. Wich is somewhat eerie, since they do have AWACS aircraft.

Actually yes, it does help to camouflage it.

 

And they use these particular colors because their research says 'you lose it from sight faster if yuo do this'. ;)

True. Its all from differences in research. You can also look at the cockpit panel colors of Western and Eastern aircraft to see evidence of this difference in research. The funny thing is...I am involved in the test program for a new Western, high performance jet aircraft, and its panel is...BLUE...just like an Eastern aircraft. :cool:
