It looks like the 49th FG fought in North Africa. So does anyone have any idea where I can find a paint scheme for any of their pilots. I can skin the P-47's and P-38's myself, but I have no images to ref. from. Help!

Particularly need letter markings like AG V or SN M (obviously these are just examples as I don't even know their lettering)

I have no idea of their markings or squad insignia. Any help really would be appreciated thanks.

Section 11.

I'm looking for the son of Francis "Spanky" Manda who flew with the 65th Fighter Squadron of the 57th Fighter Group in North Africa, Sicily, Italy and Corsica. I had been in previous contact with him but have lost his e-mail address. I can put him in touch with his father's crew chief when he flew P-47's. If his son checks this site have.

Second paragraph of P-47 section..

Unbelievable. I found this fantastic source of P-47 Thunderbolt letterings for all British campaigns....woooohoo!

British Aircraft Markings
Three-letter codes
During WWII, the RAF used three-letter aircraft codes. Two letters, painted before the roundel, indicated the unit; the third, painted aft of the roundel, the individual aircraft. Sometimes the letters were put in other places. These codes were also used by the RCAF, SAAF, RNZAF, USAAF units of the 8th and 9th AF, and for some time by post-war Belgian units.

not that it matters anyways, but the 38 in the game are J + L models, the ones that flew in N. Africa would have been F models. the engine nacels are different. along with a few other differences
