              You don't often see Lesotho Bo-105s sporting national insignia, but see attached.

                You're right, sorry. My fault and it was written on the tailboom. I was perhaps too occupied to look at your own posts of Liberian airplanes.

                    I'm not sure how "small" this AF is, but photos from are certainly rare.

                      Turkmenistan Air Force can be considered as "small" but had recently 43 Su-25 and 24 Mi-29 in service (not all active) with some An-26 for transport, L-39 for training and Mi-8 and Mi-24 helicopters as well.

                                          Correct Etienne, the particular pictures that you can see in this post were taken during "civil war" in Angola, thus the mention "used by executive outcomes" that I've added to the the previous post for Sierra Leone one.
                                          Sorry if that leads to a misunderstanding.
                                          The crew was, at least at the beginning, a mix of Ukrainian and Russian "mercenaries" supporting South African ones (private military company) for protection of diamonds mines. One Mi-24 was used supporting two Mi-17.




                                          In total, it seems that two Mi-24 were used by the Sierra Leone air force (SL-201 and SL-202)

                                          SL-201 in good times :

                                          and to add to your comment (SLAF is an historic one) SL-201 :
