No tiene pinta de tener unos colores demasiado difíciles

La siguiente info en inglés, si tienes problemas la traduzco:
A single engine light plane that, in its different models, served in the IAF continuously since 1948. At first the Piper was used as a transport for passengers and cargo, and participated in all of Israel's wars. Afterwards, and until its retirement from service in 2002, it served for instruction at the IAF Flight School.

The first Pipers joined the IAF in the War of Independence. These were 50 horsepower Piper Cubs that served for liaison, observation and transport of commanders. In April of 1954, seven Pipers participated in Operation 'Shnunuit', in which Israeli Navy men whose ship had run ashoal off the Saudi coast were rescued.

In Operation 'Yarkon', in June of 1955, six Pipers exfiltrated an intelligence reconnaissance unit from the Sinai. In the Sinai Campaign, the Piper served as the principal observation plane for the IDF ground forces. One of its pilots, Paltiel Sirotkin, received a Citation of Merit for prefenting a friendly fire incident between two Israeli troop concentrations.

The improved model, the Super Cub, began its operational service on the eve of the Sinai Campaign. In the mid-1960's they were fitted with underwing machine guns, for combating smugglers and infiltrators along the borders with Jordan and Egypt.

In the Six Day War the Super Cub was the IAF's chief reconnaissance plane. After the war it served mainly for light transport of passengers and equipment.
