Plenty of websites for that


In reality, almost no US Navy or Marine Corps plane had personal markings. I can't think of a single Japanese plane that had personal markings. British planes sometimes might have a personalised ID code, ie "DB". Dutch? Dunno. Australian? not to my knowledge.

USAAF aircraft had a degree of nose art in the PTO, but overall, the thing that makes me like the ETO aircraft better than PTO aircraft is the personal livery.

I thought I remembered a Japanese plane that had a leaping Tiger on the side of the fuselage?

Or maybe I'm getting older faster than I thought.

With more women FP simmers, we may see Naked Men on FP plane skins.

i have to take exception to that comment.
there were as many Nose arts on aircraft in the PTO USAAF as there were in the ETO USAAF.
Pime example was the 380th BG. almost every B-24 in the group had some sort of nose art or writting on it. as for the fighters, it was almost as common. navy and usmc squadrons often times only had their regimentals if anything at all.

Japanese Squadron DID in fact use a form or regimentals but nose art was very rare if ever used at all. The IJAF would have these elaborate paint designs (see the default Ki-84 Skin in game) to ID each of it's Senti, Koti, Ect. And in most cases the aircaft were numberd for squadron idetifacation. Usually with one ,two, or three didgit numeric code. otfen loctated on the tail.

The USAAF Sestem of aircraft identifacation variied whidly from theater to theater.
for ERxample the 7th AF often numberd it's fighter aircraft like this-----&gt; 123
the 5th AF like this-------&gt; H34 or H34
and as in the case of mnay 5th Af P-47 Fighter groups in the PTO most had a corrasponding color code. for example the 58th Fighter Group 5th AF USAAF:

69th FS- White Cowls (latter changed to Red)
201st FS- (MEAF-Mexico) White Cowls
310th FS- Golden Yellow Cowls
311th FS- Blue Cowls
