HTK-CS96 Ukrainian AF paint set vol. 1 (Blue Pixel)
The Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker is a twin-engine multirole fighter (S version, with ability of attacking ground targets) / pure fighter-interceptor aircraft (P version). In 1992 after collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukrainian AF inherited a substantial number of various aircraft, including up to 67 Su-27s of S, P and UB variants. In the next two decades, due to funding shortages, some airframes were permanently withdrawn, sold or put into temporary storage. In 2012 Zaporozhye State Aviation Repair Factory started overhauling the Su-27s, with partial modernization to Su-27S1M/P1M and UB1M/UP1M standard. Overhauled Su-27s feature a distinctive pixel camouflage in two variants (applied in 2012-15 and after 2015) distinguishable by different light blue colour on upper surfaces.
