Chinese Il-28: original scheme question

99.36.190.148

The Chinese received Il-28's in the early fifties and immediately put them to use along the Yalu River during the Korean War. Several were sighted. Does anyone know if early Chinese Il-28's were flown in a camouflage scheme of overall green/powder blue during the early-mid fifties, or was that scheme adapted later on in operational life?

There are several photos of North Korean and Chinese Il-28's in the green/powder blue scheme but those photos were taken of defector aircraft in 1966-70.

Thanks for any help.
