Why is it that only the USAAF, USN, and USMC can have noseart, but no other countries can? Theres no technical reason of any sorts...

Would be nice if the noseart would work online.

I already asked about this in November or something as I was rather peeved when I discovered that my lend lease B-25 and A-20 would not show up noseart when not wearing US markings.

Oleg said that only the US used noseart in that way, and so, he saw no point in implementing their use for other nations.

Wait, so if I select a US aircraft, noseart will show up online?

So I didnt completely waste my time making that pornographic noseart?

If you fly a P-38, P-47, P-51(?), B-25 or A-20 online, and you choose USMC, USAAF, or USN markings, your noseart will show on your aircraft.

As for US planes sporting nose art, it seems to me that it was the USAAF units that did this the most. The USN seriously frowned on unnecessary markings on it's carrier based planes During WWII, believing that it would help the enemy track the movements of US carrier forces.

Maybe the US had all the good cartoonists/artists. LOL http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
