Photo: Eurofighter Typhoon's kill markings. F-16, F-18 and Mirage 2000 among the shot down fighters

As already explained several times, kills scored during simulated dissimilar air combat training are not particularly interesting (other than for marketing purposes) unless the actual Rules Of Engagement (ROE) and the training scenario are known.

However, there is a lot of people who consider kill markings and HUD captures extremely seriously.

Therefore, here’s an interesting picture, showing some kill markings on an Italian Eurofighter Typhoon.

Taken at Grosseto airbase in 2010 by Dario Leone, a reader of this blog, the photograph clearly shows the aircraft downed by the F-2000s of the 4° Stormo during DACT: F-18, F-16, Mirage 2000, Tornado and AMX (with the “Tonka” and the AMX not being particularly significant because they are fighter bombers that don’t excel in the air-to-air scenario).

In 2009, an F-22 kill marking on a EA-18G Growler made the news.

    Is that fourth silhouette a Flogger? Perhaps in Libya? If not a Flogger, what is it, I wonder?

      As David told in this post is a Tornado. She can’t be a Flogger,
      since this photo has been taken on 3 May 2010 and Libya Air War started about one year later.
