    I am extremely fascinated by the colour schemes of the Japanese Air Force. F-4's painted like a cherry tree, etc.

    Now, if Japan should engage in a conflict, will they quickly get into the (boring) grey or will they carry on with those beautiful schemes?

    Just wonder.

    With modern air forces I don't think camoflauge even matters any more. You can target them and send a missle on the way before a opponent is within visual range. Maybe make them a little harder to see when they're sitting still on the ground maybe.

    But who leaves a multi-million dollar aircraft outside of a hanger or hardened shelter anymore? Except maybe for airshows.

    There will be no other choice but stealth grey.
    Fly lower, attack the target and return to the base without wasting time.
