    Why is this part of the flankers painted differently?
    It is because it's near the gun port? But I don't see it on other aircrafts.

    Guns, Doors for Guns, and skins immediately surrounding the gun are subject to heat and severe "staining" from the heat and powder being burnt. Depending on the design, and the amount of unburnt powder and heat, even significant "erosion" may occur? If you note the aircraft immediately above, that skin appears to be titanium or stainless, both good choices!
