G.91R/4
Unit: Esquadra 702 'Escorpioes', FAP
Serial: 5404

Initially on their arrival in Mozambique, FAP G.91R-4s were painted in tropical light grey overall - a colour that was foremost to decrease the effects of the sun. The aircraft also carried large national insignia, while several Fiats of the 702 Esquadra (including examples 5425 and 5429) were seen wearing the large unit insignia - a black scorpion - on mid-fuselage as well. The example depicted here, 5404, was seen at Beira, in the early 1970s. For attack operations in Mozambique, FAP G.91s were usually armed with four 12.7mm machine-guns, four 50kg bombs (carried on outboard underwing pylons), and carried two drop tanks (on inboard pylons).

A Fiat G.91R-4 from Esquadra 121, based at BA12 - Bissau / Bissalanca in the period 1973 - 1974. After the PAIGC started using SA-7 Strela MANPADs the FAP camouflaged its Fiats in this dark green 'anti-radiation' paint, developed by personnel of the OGMA (Oficina Geral de Material Aeronautico) facilities in Portugal. This camouflage was to become widespread between all aircraft used in the Portuguese colonies in the mid-1970s. How far this was successful remains unknown.

G.91R/4
Unit: Esquadra 702 'Escorpioes', FAP
Serial: 5421

Upon appearance of SA-7 MANPADs in Mozambique, most of Fiats were overpainted in 'anti-radiation olive green' colour, of which there were two versions, the lighter one - shown here - and the more widespread shade, rather similar to the 'bronze green' in use on US Army helicopters. The size of national insignia and other markings was considerably decreased. The look of special instructions around aircraft camouflaged this way is not entirely clear, however, then the photographic evidence is insufficient.
