Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Except in Syria where two British special forces were recently badly injured.

As a slight tangent, is it me or is the new colour scheme very similar to the old "anti flash white"?

Same colour scheme, overall camouflage grey. Low visibility roundels and no squadron markings.

Great news, although I am slightly disappointed that so few Brimstones are now being used...... looks like there can't be that many left to kill. Either that or they have all buggered off to Turkey for some down time...
