    OK. Just had some of doubt. To be honest I haven't seen images of Finnish Hawks in a such camo scheme. These were of either Green (Khaki)/ Blue Grey one or Green/Black/Light Blue one. Of course with yellow quick ID elements.

    I have gone through a couple of books about Finnish AF additionally. But nothing has been found as well.
    If you look for something more colourful I would suggest French Hawks used both in France and in Africa.
