18 days of work: another F-16 squadron of "aggressors" repainted under the Su-57

Another American F-16 fighter, depicting a “probable enemy” aircraft in air battles, received a new coloring, repeating the coloring scheme of Russian Su-57 fighters. About this with reference to the press service of the US Air Force blog reports bmpd.

According to the publication, the 576th US Air Force ground handling squadron repainted the F-16C Block 32D Fighting Falcon fighter from the 64th “aggressor” squadron, which, as part of the US Air Force, depicts “potential enemy” aircraft. The aircraft was serviced at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, although the "aggressors" themselves are based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. It is emphasized that the application of painting took much longer than the standard procedure.

As we see in the photo, the plane of the "aggressors" received the "most popular" color, repeating the Russian Su-57 fighters, which, apparently, should continue to depict the American F-16.

It is emphasized that this is not the first aircraft painted under the Su-57, last year the first F-16C fighter from the 64th squadron received the same pixel camouflage. According to General Rob Nowotne, commander of the 57th air wing of the US Air Force, pronounced in May 2019, this color is applied to get the American pilots accustomed to "something new", i.e. pilots need to get used to the coloring of Russian fighters, as to the aircraft of the "likely enemy".

Giving American fighters the appearance of Russian "turned out to be very difficult." If applying the standard paint scheme of the US Air Force to an F-16 fighter takes an average of 11 days of work, then applying a pixel camouflage “under the Su-57” took 18 days with 12 people working.

      Photos and videos of German art from the link below.
      The German Air Force boasted a new design for its Eurofighter Typhoon. At the same time, the drawings have a hidden meaning: the Quadriga design hints at the Tranche-4, which means the technical modernization of the fourth generation of Eurofighter fighters.

      With one stroke of the brush

      Yes, “one stroke”, 12 people, 18 days. Stencils, pulvers, stains, primers. I hope at least they buy paint from us.
      PS: There is a rat-offer, let them drive to Irkutsk, there they will paint for them in a day and take it inexpensively, as a hack, after work.

    When will the White House be repainted under the Kremlin? I think Trump will not mind. He is also an aggressor.

      About repainting, something was remembered.

      Morning, the President of the Russian Federation enters his office, and freezes in the doorway - on his
      the place sits Stalin.
      Stalin: Come in, dear. At night I looked at your desk notes
      reports and here’s what I want to offer: The first is to shoot all your deputies and advisers. The second is to repaint the Kremlin in green.
      President: Why repaint the Kremlin in green ???
      Stalin: So I knew that there would be no objection to the first question.

    They want to teach their pilots to paint our planes, so that when they suddenly meet, they won't do it. laughing

      Hagen ..They want to train their pilots in painting our planes so that they don’t get out of control when they suddenly meet.

      Rather, to organize provocations in the regions they need. They are waiting for the Su-57 to be adopted.

        In fact, for a long time in the US Army to simulate the exercises there are units that play the role of a likely enemy (i.e., us), armed and equipped under our troops. There was information that they were being trained according to our combat manuals for the sake of completeness. This is a common practice for them.

        As if the first time they heard about it. Previously, on the F-5, the stars were painted.

    But nothing that the Su-35 and Su-57 are twin-engine, not to mention the fact that they have super-maneuverability due to UVT, unlike the old ones like the shit of the mammoth F-16?

    Next time, let them paint "Tsesna" - the effect is the same (in the sense of its absence), and the costs are less laughing

    So they must be brought down according to the protocol. What to get off with one paint, it is necessary to work out in full.
