That didn't answer the question...if heat seeking missiles don't care about the color then why not paint them blue and white?

The French already have dibs on white.

Actually, it can be tracked by radar. Anything can be tracked by radar. As long as there is something there to bounce the wave off. In theory, you could track a bumblebee from hundreds of miles away (curvature of the earth and line of sight permitting) the thing with this is, do you want to track everything? Do you want to track every bird, building, telegraph pole, tree etc. etc.? The answer is no, you don't. That is why you put a filter on the size of the returns you get back. The trick with stealth aircraft is to get this radar signature smaller than the lowest value of the radar filter. If you were to make a radar system powerful enough, you could track the F-117 and the B-2. The trouble is that no one with the technological capability and money has really had the need to make one. Anyway, if you think the F-117 is hidden, one was shot down on the 27th of March, 1999 by a Serbian/Yugoslav SA-3, which at the time was considered obsolete. 'Stealth' planes also lose their stealth when they get wet/open the bay doors. So...................................... Yeh, anon.

**** , I wasted a lot of time there.....

The paint does not matter, however, the material that is used (that gives a specific color) definitely matters. Also some aircraft are painted blue on the bottom for camoflauge

*cough* Blue on the bottom doesnt help. The litteral best colour to use is a weird faded pink (i forget the name) as your eyes cannot distinguish between it and the sky, i know you'd think blue, i assumed to too, but its far easier to see than you'd have imagined.

1. Planes are painted a battleship grey these days because it blends in with everything at long range.

2. There's no real point to camoflauging most military aircraft thsese days, because combat has moved BVR, or Beyond Visual Range. Radar doesn't care what color your paint is.

honestly it doesn't matter about the radar and lock on missiles, wouldn't it be fun just to camoflaug in the sky for no complete reason, like even if its in your own country it will drive people crazy saying hey I hear a plane but I don't see it, where the **** is it?

Pain them blue! Sky color.
User avatar #36 - TheFixer (11/09/2012) [-]
or, or we could just use the mirrors that are used on tanks to disguise the tanks...
User avatar #22 - evilanakie (11/09/2012) [-]
now they paint them a weird purple that blends in with the sky

I might be mistaken, but didn't they used to colour the bottom of some planes pink or something?
User avatar #1 - opiethepug (11/09/2012) [-]
They do. At least, on the bottom, so the ground dudes just see sky.
