We have the "parafrags" and the "fire" could some ingenious programer combine the two for PF it would be a beautiful thing. http://www.nps.gov/wapa/indepth/extContent/usmc/pcn-190-003140-01/sec9.htm Right after the picture of the B-25 it explains their use.

Excellent idea. Maybe also some colored smoke to emulate smoke grenades dropped by troops to designate targets for major ground poundage.

Also the Christmas Trees dropped by Mosquitos over Germany to guide the RAF nite bombers.

To see what its like, you can place red and green (Light2 and Light3) in FMB. Cluster about 20 together in a 100m square on the map. Then edit the mission text file in WordPad or NotePad and change the last number from 0.0 (altitude in meters) to, say, a spread from 5000 to 5400. You can mix the colours, or make red trees and green trees. Don't know anything about the historical use of the colours myself. Works out pretty good. If you fly visual Me~262 Wild Sau (no radar) against the Mosquitos (use AI Ki~46 for now I guess), the trees should look pretty nice at night.

As well as some incendiary bombs, the ones who can create a huge fire.

Might be hard for old computer systems.
