Sweet they painted! I have seen that lo vis star before on a Su-35 I believe but it is relatively rare... better than that three tone hunk of garbage.

I hope they revert to the old red star. This low-viz version looks like a Christmas ornament and the red/white/blue star is, as Taiidantomcat pointed out, a hunk of garbage.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?


Apparently, they are now running out of red paint to paint these red stars
they are just getting on the bandwagon for low-vis markings

(another possible reason is that paint is more reflective to radar, so... the less,the better.... just saying.)

You're welcome - I like it too.

Agreed, that three-tone was just plain wrong  :blink:
