Title: Mongolian Yak?
Post by: barneybolac on January 07, 2017, 09:17:19 PM
Found these two images on Facebook and were listed as a Mongolian Yak.
Anymore information known on this aircraft?

I gave the information I found to my friend who skins for the flight SIM game I play. He did some more research and found a much clearer image than the first one I posted.

He also looked into the history of the Mongol Empire they had a series of flags that the horseman used during the time of Genghis Khan. Based of the image above he used the colours the Mongols used and did this skin.

I found the same profile that I posted before & is now of course proven wrong on a Russian site.
After translation it gives a brief overview of the profile.

Very beautiful! On the small photo, I missed the blue parts.
My compliments to your friend that made the skin.
