I suppose that's a plus, if you can get that close... but from any gun footage that I've seen (perhaps not enough) you'd "lock-on" at far greater distances and dispatch the bird with an air-to-air.... wouldn't you?
The markings on the craft are extremely suttle. I suspect a pilot would have to use electronics to identify this plane as friend or foe. Considering the number of international trade aircraft and the considerable high speeds of today's combat aircraft I imagine it would be hard to recognize anything by sillouette or markings such as this.
