      The Cessna 337 is not from Belize.
      It is an American warbird painted in Belize marks.

        Thanks for precision. It seems to have, hardly visible, a US registration on tail.

            That xairforces guy does that rather regularly. Check out his bogus Burundi Alouette III, for example. He Photoshops insignia on pictures of aircraft, and passes them off as legit. There are more such examples on his web site.

                  Mi-8T in Armenian colors. Quite a rare combination as the most of Armenian Hips are Mi-17s.

                    This one's almost 100% certainly Photoshopped, too. Note what appears to be the "Royal Australian Air Force" title on the forward fuselage, as well as the dark cheat line extending back to what appears to be an RAAF roundel. Note also what appears to be a poorly executed attempt to overlay a bad rendition of the CAR flag on the fin over a call-sign ending with a "5". The color scheme also appears to be very suspect; I have never seen any other CAR aircraft in what appears to be a natural-metal finish. I would take most images this guy posts with a rather large grain of salt, as they say.

                            Another clue is the fact that there is no registration code anywhere on the aircraft, which begins with the suffix "TL-" for the CAR. See attached image of actual CAR C-130.

                                The Marshall Islands 228 is not military never has been. I've been flying through Majuro/Kwaj for over 20 years seen their different aircraft and talked to their pilots. Said they keep an eye out for boats but that's about it.

                                    Agreed, but threw it in there because it was the closest I could come to an example with authentic Marshall Islands markings. Also, oftentimes very small countries use civilian and commercial aircraft for quasi-military uses, such as you said, keeping eyes out for boats. Also, commercial cargo and passenger aircraft are used at times by small countries to ferry military personnel. In addition, private aircraft are at times commandeered by military forces for their own use. Sometimes there's a somewhat thin line between what constitutes military aircraft and private, civilian, and commercial aircraft. In addition, there are governmental aircraft, such as the UK Fisheries and the Saudi Ministry of Information examples, that aren't technically military aircraft. Got to admit that the colors on the Marshall Islands Do-228 look pretty sharp, though. Also, the Sao Tome example isn't a military example, either, but I imagine the same considerations apply to it as well. Given that it was the first example of an aircraft sporting their national marking, I decided to include it as well.

                                          Picture comes from Embraer site.
                                          Then probably a flight test aircraft before ordering, in the colors of the buyer, but ownership of Embraer (or a PS again).
