Wrong Its for similar types dogfight training. Those stripes are temporary. Which debunks the myth of "no dogfighting behind the Iron Curtain"

In all fairness, he could've been referring to a different set of stripes.
Here's another mention of the 68 invasion

Basically, invasion stripes were reused from a common practice of training exercises. Same for the ground vehicles "white cross".

If they were reused from training, then only half or so of the aircraft would be usable, not accounting for maintenance attrition, unless the other half of the aircraft hurriedly received stripes as well

Not training aircraft reuse, practice of temporary markings reuse.
Its not like half of the force is always striped. Its agressor force receive temporary paint for two weeks and then its washed away. Same described in articles about Il-28.

Makes sense, but "use in training" doesn't denote "training aircraft",there is a difference.

Our migs used temporary color stripes and motives to play "agressorss" during pre 89' military excercises. I will try find some pictures in my modeling references. Those was not like western top-gun - more like whole operation excercise where you have assigned task like troops support, bombing and so on. There was generally lack of dogfight training.
