It had been discovered that the United States had been repainting many of their fighter jets in Russian Air Force colors, to bomb Syria.


However, it had not yet been confirmed whether this repainting business was part of a training process. On the other hand, it was also suspected that the repainting was done as a preparation to launch a terrible bombing inside Syria.

If that was the case, the repainting would help the US to blame the Russians for the attack.

According to Super Station95,  the repainting of these fighter jets could help in going for bombing missions, while making sure that they fly low and slow circling a target a few times.

The publication continued to note that the low flying jets would be noticed by people on the ground, who would turn out their cellphones to record the video of the attack.

The US would sit and relax, while all the civilian videos would make their way into social media showing a “Russian” plane committed the bombing. This would certainly be a perfect setup.

Moreover, it had also been questioned that why does US need to repaint an entire fighter jet for the purpose of training.

The F/A-18 Hornet was an US Navy and Marine Corps jet aircraft that could been used as both a fighter and attack platform. While in fighter mode, the F/A-18 had been used mainly as a fighter escort and for fleet air defense. In terms of attack mode, the jet had been used for force projection, cut off enemy supplies and close and deep air support, said Military.

In 2014, it was reported by The Aviationist that Defense indeed announced the repainting job. The paint was being applied on to the F/A-18 Hornet, which was similar to the Russian 4th and 5th generation aircraft.

This was being done as the US jets were taking participating in Top Gun jet fighter training at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, SC. The speculation that the repainted aircraft would be used for false flag bombing in Syria, was completely waived.

According to a report by Airforce-Technology, the Su-34 fighter bomber had been developed by the Sukhoi Design Bureau Joint Stock Company in Moscow. The Novosibirsk Aircraft Production Association at Novosibirsk, Russia, was also another creator of the Russian fighter jet.

    complete crap. like no one could tell the difference between a f/a 18 hornet and a su-34. painted or not

  • Colin Campbell

    This has got to be the stupidest story I’ve ever read. As if anybody on the ground is going to see the markings anyway.

  • doublescoop

    Trick or treat !!!

    You people in the media are pathological liars. I’m a former USAF “Aggressor” pilot. I also saw combat in “Desert Storm”. Aggressor aircraft are painted in Russian colors for “Red Flag” exercises ONLY. These are training exercises in tactics for U.S., and allied pilots. The U.S. does NOT paint it’s aircraft in another country’s paint scheme, and markings, and send them to bomb a target and blame it on someone else. You people in the media are as dumb as it gets.

      I always love these conspiracy stories that would involve thousands of personnel! That’s so easy to pull off…

  • bill McKinnon

    This is Russian propaganda, pure and simple. They lie all day long.

  • There’s not one aircraft in the US that looks anything like a Russian aircraft. Those on the ground in Syria are well accustomed to seeing Migs and Sukhois and any other Russian bomber flies far too high to see the aircraft, much less the markings.

    Smoke real weed, it’s good for you; that lousy cheap fabricated crap you’re buying is really bad for you and horrific for your writing reality.

    Wow…considering aggressor squadrons have been around for over 45 years now, you guys take the cake for being really behind the times….. like half a century behind. See, there are these squadrons all around the country, actually not even half as many as were around during the cold war, that fly primarily to act the role of the “bad” guy in training exercises. The Navy has a couple in Virginia, Florida and Nevada, the Air Force have some in Nevada and Alaska and the Marines have some in Arizona. Nothing even remotely classified about them. Talk to anybody in Virginia Beach and they could identify the aircraft in your pictures as being from VFC-12. Which for more info,
    Now, if you showed me pictures of a Hornet off a carrier right now in the Med or Persian Gulf painted like that your story might have some credibility, but showing a aggressor painted Hornet at the Marine’s East Coast Fighter base is beyond mundane. It’s actually the norm. You guys should do a little verification before printing this crap.
