Nah, that's just the pointy end! ;)

The business end is the top deck in front of the conning tower;

Looks like parts off an old tank!
Im assuming thats photoshop. I cant imagine painting up an aircraft to look that way.

It's probably a vinyl decal kerick, CanMilAir does 1:1 ones as a day job, and did scaled decals as an aside (which he has now stopped doing because he can't get spares for his ALPS printer)

12 P-8A Maritime Patrol Aircraft have been approved for acquisition with another 3 committed to bringing the eventual total up to 15.  They will work alongside 7 MQ-4C Triton UAVs.
