I would assume so Woody. Plus the Growlers and E-7's. Actually with the announcement of the G-550 EW's we are getting the RAAF is putting together
quite a powerful force of EW and SIGINT aircraft when you consider F-35, E-7 Wedgetails, EA-18G and now these G550's/MC-55A Peregrines.
They paint them to match potential adversary paint schemes. My personal favorite, in a WTF kind of way is The Rotten Banana out of Fallon. Nellis is
currently working on an Su-57 scheme, based on a social media vote.
They watch things like air parades, which tend to debut new paint schemes. At one of them in Russia, there was a hideous yellow striped aircraft, so
they copied it, thinking it was new. Turned out to be a one off for the parade.
Interestingly, against the desert, it's damn near impossible to see when above it looking down.
