Do you see what I'm talking about? Perhaps you need a closer shot. I sure wish we could have gotten away with this! They just about hung us for trying to put nose art on one of our aircraft

That's not a helicopter. That's a dolphin.

Before the first Gulf War, due to the rapid need for deployment, and so many to be painted, the Marines were allowed to paint their squadron aircraft in their own hangers before deploying. There may have been as many as 4 of these ships with that paint scheme.

So let me get this right.
Camouflage is to help you blend in, right?

So this helicopter is designed not to be seen... in a desert strip club?
Useful.

I thought that sort of art was reserved for the mud flaps of trucks.
