As some of you know i'm working to get the USAAF Regimentals folder for FB inlarged and to get US units avalible to be selected from the FMB & in coops. I started the project not realizing just how many bomber groups were in the 8th Air Force. Army air force wing structure is not all that complex. Basically it boils down like this. Air Force #, Group #, Squadron #. With the inclution of the
b-17, 24,25,&26 which are all being modeled or have been completed i felt that adding the bomber Group and Squadron
Insgnia was well needed. How ever, there are SO MANY bomber squadrons in the 8th AF that there is no way to inlude them all.So what i'm going to do is the insignia for an equal number of bomber groups. By this i mean there will be 5 Fighter groups. (*see below) And 5 Bomber groups. with the insgnia for each group and squadron there in. So here is where i need the Help form the community. I need recomendations on which bomber groups to include in the regimentals file. As soon as i've completed editing the image files, and whriting the text files i'll post them some where for Download. (I'll need a host for this, maybe Mudmovers or Skins.com)
Another way that i could aproch this for the bomber groups is to just do the Group Insigna and Omit the Squadrons all together.My priority for the bopmber insignia is the b-17 groups because that WILL be included in the futer and we all know this from the updates. So my question to you all is which US bomber gruops insignia would you all like to see included in this?
Here's a list of the Bomber Groups of the 8th Air Force:

34th Bomb Group:
91st Bomb Group:
92nd Bomb Group:
93rd Bomb Group:
94th Bomb Group

I think you should go for the ones which were most populer. Or the ones which saw most action.

Lookin really good BTW.

P4-2.4Gig
1GigPC2100 DDR Ram
SoyoDragon Ulrtra Mobo
8X AGP Slot
GF-4Ti4600pny
20"Monitor
40GigHD
58xCDRW-Drive
DVDRom-Drive
SB-Live 5.1
DX-9.0
XP-PRO
So he tells me, "I ban the Me262 cause its turn rate is over modeled and it dosnt stall"... Then he takes off from his base in a Hurricane.

i have the 5th ready images for the us Squadrons Galway,
think you might could help me out with the aussie groups & squads? I have little knowlage of RAAF wing stucture or of how they were involved with the 5th AF. I'm sure it's something like the 210st Mex. Squadron form the 5th Af 58th FG. They were a forien unit under USAAF command flying US AC's.

I'll need a workable copy of the RAAF Group/Squadron Insignia anlog with the name of the US fighter Gruop of the US 5th AF that they were asigned to.
My priorites are the US 5th,8th, & 9th AF's.

I have a limited amount of time to compleate the USAAF protion of the project before i can move onto the RAF/RCAF.
So needless to say that time is of the essance.
