I you look at the side of the air intake on the Eurofighter EF-2000 Typoon in the photo below you'll see many black & white marks that have numbers beside them. As you can see, these marks are scattered all around in no particular order of arangement.
Does anyone know what these marks are for, and why they're scrambled around like they are?
They look like they're marking the location of bullet holes in the order that the Typoon was hit. I didn't know the EF-2000 had seen action!

PS, if you check, you'll see that the photographer would like to know the answer to this question too.
