I've been waiting for ages to get RNZAF roundels in PF (i know we did nothing on the russian front, and most of our pilots in europe flew in an RAF squadron dedicated to NZ'ers.

But the RNZAF did fight in the Pacific and I was glad to see the RNZAF in PF.

However the RNZAF roundels arn't in PF, on the planes we have RAAF roundels, what gives?

It took me 5 mins on google to get RNZAF roundels from 1939-2004.

So instead of the RAAF roundels some of ours were like this... (RAF ones)

However New Zealand ones were also like this... (painted over RAF and USAAF emblims on lend lease planes)

Ok so as you can see i have a few versions of the roundels used by the RNZAF, including the RAF one, and the roundels with bars we used to paint over the lend-lease aircraft from the USAAF and RAF.

So is their any chance that we could get a proper RNZAF emblim in the game?

Also can someone with IL-2Mat Manager please post a screen shot of what the RNZAF emblim looks like in that (yes thats right, even IL-2Mat Manager has the right roundel)

I was checking some aircraft in QMB and yes, I can definitely remember New Zealand roundels..

However, if you select "RN" in campaign mode, you get -> Australian roundels. So..

Have you patched the game yet?

3.02bm definately has RNZAF roundels. Of the correct coloring according to the Kittyhawk image that you posted.

Whats still entirely disappointing is no SEAC roundels for the RAF and the standard RAF's roundels are still hideously miscolored.

No i don't have 3.02mb http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I didn't realise they had changed.

THe roundels on the kitty hawk are the early war roundels that were only used on our early war planes such as P-40's

The roundels on the corsairs and SBD-5 are the ones we used on our later war planes.

I was wondering, could someone check to see if the later war planes have our later war roundel?

Sorry for this, didn't realise 3.02mb fixed the roundels.

Now we only need to get the RN roundels fixed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

P.S. The bottom of the 4 kitty hawk pictures has an RAF roundel, you do mean the top 3 when you say thats what the look like in 3.02mb, right?
