Oleg can you increase the number size on the p51d and place the regiment on the left side underneathe the exhaust, I understand your the only one who is able to change numbering positions and sizing.

The us logo is positioned the same as NN avirex's which you use in the game

another thing if possible letting as well as numbering

PE =(*)= Y

Most mustangs used lettering rather then numbering for identification it would help out alot thx.

The 'regiment' was not where you place it. That was one of the usual places for the a/c's name(under the cockpit was another). The 'regiment' designator (FG/FS) was the color(s) of the nose and tail.

rgr i agree.would be nice to see that get corrected.
i'd like to see some thing where you could set you own. some thing like selecting the number in the arming screen.
Or at least editing a regimental txt file to read then as you would need them to apear. take the 58th FG for example
the 310th FS's call letters were H34-H66, the 69th FS A1 - A33, the 311th FS were V69 - V99. just like this V99. with no space in between them. basically we need some thing a litle more flexable for the americain aircraft like the 39/40/47/51. But sadly i think that Olegs aproach will be to tell us to paint them on the skins. (the answer i got from him regarding Japanese squadron regimentals) but hey...you never know ...he may surpise us. we can always hope /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Right. usualy the had a spacific paint scheme for the squadron or group that was usually aproved bey the squadron or group commander. Again i'll refer to the squadrons of the 58th FG 5th AF....

now cowls were difernat for all 4 squadrons of the group.
but only the 3 us squadrons used 3 digit call letters.
thw 201th FS (Mexico) MEAF used a 2 digit code. 1 thru 33.

201st had the white cowls.
69th red cowls(white with white then to red after the 210th joined the gruop in Austrailia)
310th yellow cowls
311th blue.

All 4 squadrons had a white tails with white leading wing edges. per 5th Af identification regulations for all single engien aircraft. the 210st being the only exception as they had red white & green Vertical stripes on their rudders & the MEAF triangle on the oposate wing as the USAAF emblem.

& on all 4 squadrons prior to the introduction of the bubble canopy p-47's the all were OD green with 2 white chevrons diagonly under the USAAF emblem. (pre-bubble top)
so my point is that each squadron & each group of squadrons had it's own way of id'ing aricraft. some where by far more elaborate than others. but they generally used a color code as well as the call letter sytem. I would suspect the colors were to id planes to far out to read thier call letters. but that's a best guess.

well the thing is in regiments I dont think its possible have it wrap around the whole tail, it must be a new skin for tail regiment markings, so i think it would be wise to place it as noseart instead of regiment logo on the side of the canopy, this way a squad can use one generic squadron marking skin and have nose art/as regiment send

The US in game roundels have been wrong since the original IL2. I have posted on this before. The points of the star NEVER go beyond the outside diameter of the blue roundel.

What we have in the game is simply the Russian overpainting of the USAAF markings on lend lease aircraft, with a white star instead of a red one.

And man is it UGLY....


BE SURE!!
