Carguy, you'll need a program to convert the picture into .tga format (I use CC Viewer, which is ancient but works). Then change the file name to "background.tga" and put it in the Missions\Campaign\XX folder of your choice, where "XX" is any of the two letter country designators (DE, DU, GB, etc.) You might want to backup the original "background.tga" files first, in case you want to go back to them again later.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I know it's an historical archive, and that they're photos of war, but it is upsetting to see the tragedy of the waste of human lives in such graphic detail.

Having delighted in the colour photos of the planes, I'm now glum from the photos of the dead or dying.

One plane I noticed is incorrectly identified.

This is a A-36 Apache not a P-51. Notice the two guns under the nose and the carb scoop on the top of the cowl. This is a ground attack version of the same airframe with a Allison 1710 powerplant.
