Hmmm...anyone else thinking what I am thinking:  take the Swedish Flygvapnet markings and scheme from the J-20/Re 2000 variant and put them on the Re.2005.  After all, Sweden did have access to DB605s...

I like the way you think.  I wonder what they would do when DB605s no longer were available?  A Merlin installation or a Griffon?

Well, it could follow the Fiat G.55/G.59 path with something like the Merlin...but that's a whole other whiff. ;)

Something of a double-whiff then?  That's very, very tempting.
