It's political correctness gone mad.

I would argue than an A-10 in any colour is a beauty. This looks like a beast of a machine.

I seen video of F-16 painted in black. Will they only be used for night mission as night fighters like the Luftwaffe had in WW2? Black BF-110 for intercepting RAF bomber squadrons doing night bombing.

Intercepting the black painted RAF bombers who were being protected by black painted Mosquito night fighters.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Don't fret KRT_Bong. This thread discussion is still 100x more intelligent than the one in Haggart's NASA/UFO thread. biggrin

Well..... actually.... he's not wrong

Of course Mossies did not fly escort, in the way one would think of a fighter escort, for Lancasters on night bombing raids.

However I do believe they were sent out on free lance German night fighter hunting missions, homing on the German fighters radar emissions. Sort of the way Gen Doolittle changed 8th AF fighter escort tactics in early 1943 allowing the fighters to roam ahead and hunt German fighters rather than waiting for them to attack the bombers.

They, black painted Mossies and Beaufighters, would also hang around German air bases waiting for German a/c to land after hunting RAF bombers.
