I hope to hell that scheme is the new standard. but it could also be a one off, even Brazil got a special scheme for their first jet.

This colour scheme is so reminiscent of the one they had during the 80s (although that one was green). Really cool!

That's one bad ass livery! :bigthumbsup: Hopefully, it wouldn't overshadow the fighter's capabilities. :goodvibes:

What's at the tip of the wings, just hardpoints, or is there more to it ?

The thick front and rear tip of the rail looks like a housing for electronics, for warning and countermeasures.
