With the PTO now being seen.
How about some different color flares for marking targets at night.
H-ll some for day use to.
Just thinking?!?!

This is an exellent idea, in night bombings some flares would surely be useful so that everybody could see the target. This was done IRL too and I don't think that modelling slowly descenting lights in a parachute would be too difficult.

The problem is, should the Flares be a loadout option for planes that can drop them or should these planes always have them by default, and how can people exploit those in dogfight situation.

Ah, It would be absolutely marvelous to be able to paint a target in a night mission with flares!!! Someone should look into this and get a good list going of what planes could handle such loadouts.

Like, the allied Mudmovers? (P38, P47)

Build a man a fire, keep him warm for a day...

Set a man on fire, keep him warm for the rest of his life.
