Thanks it does looks like Stratiomyini.
Might be Hoplitimyia constans?
Gonna keep searching.

I agree. It really looks alike the european Soldier Fly

It has to be a species of the same genus or family :-)

Fly - possibly a soldier fly (Stratiomyidae)
Try something like this - maybe not the same species, but should be close (the soldier fly, not the hoverfly).
