Ethiopian Air Force now owns a Boeing 757 (didn't even know that). The plane is labeled FDRE Air Force ኢፌዴሪ ኣየር ሃይል

The Army's gear also looks quite impressive. It has come a long way since the rag-tag days 20 years ago. The marking on the plane doesn't look professional.

very old soviet area jet fighters...

the Sukkoi are damn huge ! i saw them in an Air Show and freaking noisy !
they might also consume an insane amount of fuel.
for maintenance and repair, Ethiopia depends on the will on Russia (and Ukraine)

You are better off putting a question mark at the end of your statements. Not only do we maintain and repair them, with do it for many other African countries as a gesture of good will.
