              This particular Ethiopian Su-25UB that was posted by p_shadow came actually from facebook.
              I found this after hours of doing some digging around.

              As for finding The Ethiopian Su-25TK, I wish it were that easy.

                You're right MiG! Facebook has been a huge information source on military matters for years. It has definitely been a great help for authors/researchers for their works too.

I never imagined that Cape Verde An-26s wore camouflage colors, much less the old national insignia. Wish I could get a good, clear image. This is pretty extraordinary itself, though!

                  Oh, man, p_shadow, that close-up of the Cape Verde An-26 is superb! Thanks! Anybody have an image of the badge on the front fuselage, or know what the aircraft number on the fin is?

                    It was an Angolan crew delivering the first An-26 to Cape Verde, so most probably it's FA-C01.

                        Well known pictures showing the Su-24 arrival and assembly at Catumbela, Angola. Date unknown, but guessing late 90ies. My sources are saying in august 2002 already not flighworthy, not sure if it ever flew.

                                        very strange camo for the Sudanese Hind and MiG 29 !, I don't think the MiG 23 is Sudanese either, the 4 floggers they received from Qaddafi years ago were shot down or scrapped, It might be the defected Ethiopian bird but the Ethiopian would definitely request it back home ! .

                                          I agree, something doesn't fit here...
                                          There are four MiG-29UBs in Sudanese service and, to my knowledge, none of them is painted grey. The same way, none of the Floggers delivered to Sudan from Libya were of the depicted MiG-23MLA standard. The base also doesn't quite look like Wadi Sayyidna.

                                          The camo on the Mi-35P could be legit, though.. Here's another one..
