It seems that all those Finnish Air Force a/c in FB have incorrect post war emblems. Why?

that is because the WW2 finnish markings contain a swastica and oleg and co. want no swasticas in the game(very reasonable having in mind for what symbol it was used)

For those who don't know, it should be stated that the Finnish symbol of a blue swastika on a white circle has absolutely nothing to do with National Socialist Germany. It was the personal symbol of Count Erik von Rosen of Sweden. It represented good luck, which is the centuries old meaning of the symbol. He donated his plane to the Finnish White Army in 1918, during the Finnish Civil War. Being that his aircraft was their very first, his symbol was adopted as the official Finnish Air Force emblem in honor of him. It was used until September of 1944, when Finland signed an armistice. It was then demanded by the Soviets that it be changed to a blue and white roundel.

A blue roundrel in a computer game is a small thing. If y'all want a real issue to complain about then how about this one:

The Arizona statehouse floor is tiled with little swastikas from wall to wall.

Apparently it was an American Indian symbol of good luck too, but that dosen't stop them from getting a lot of flak over it from todays special interest groups.

At least, unlike IL2, nobody is trying to sell the Arizona statehouse floor in countries like Germany where the mere display of a swastika is illegal.

There are no - and are never going to be ANY swastikas in the European version of IL2 or FB or any future Maddox project I think.
