Reference News Network reported on January 22, according to the Russian Satellite News Agency website reported on January 17, in recent decades, the United States Air Force has simulated a series of impressive enemy fighters, the appearance of which is similar to that of Russian, Iranian and Chinese fighters.
Following the discovery of a suspected model of the Chinese J-20 fighter aircraft at the US military base recently, the US military launched the idea of impersonating the Su-57. Russian media said that the commander of the 57th United Force of the US Air Force confirmed that the F-16C fighter equipped by the 64th squadron of the US fighter aircraft will be coated with Russian-Soviet-57 fighter aircraft to play the main Russian fighter in the simulated confrontation.
Robert Novotny, commander of the 57th United Force of the US Air Force, recently confirmed on social networks that the Force is replacing the paint for its F-16C fighters, and that the new paint to be used is the same digital pixel camouflage as that for the Russian Soviet-57 fighters. Novotny said that the painting work will be completed by the summer of this year, and U.S. warplanes using the Su-57 painting will be shown at subsequent air exhibitions.

Russian media believe that the use of the painting of the Su-57 is not only because the camouflage looks cool, but also because it represents the new Russian fighter aircraft that the United States considers as an important threat. Based on the Russian military data collected by the United States, the modified fighter will simulate the tactics, operational procedures and fire strike mode of the Russian Air Force in an all-round way, so that the American pilots can simulate the air-to-air confrontation with the Russian Air Force.
In addition, Russian media also speculated that the US military might try to simulate the stealth performance of the Russian fighter aircraft by simulating some of the stealth coatings used by the Su-57 fighter aircraft.
Reported that the U.S. Air Force has a long history of changing paint to simulate the use of mobile phones, even directly as training for mobile phones. The U.S. Air Force has obtained Soviet MiG-2, MiG-29 and Su-27 fighter planes through various channels for the use of U.S. Air Force confrontation training. (Compiler/Vernon)
