Hi Oleg,

I've enjoyed IL2 and FB very much, but one thing has bothered me ever since the sim was released: the late war german planes have the wrong markings applied to them. Here is what I mean:

Bf 109 G-14, K-4: both of these planes show a white cross on the lower wing surface, when in fact it should be black.

Fw 190 D-9's: both models should have a black cross on the fuselage and lower wing surface.

I'm sure these things could be fixed with little difficulty, as they're just TGA files being displayed.

I don't think I've ever seen something like a D9 with a black fuselage cross. I can't remember when the White boarders first came in but I know they are fact. Defence of the Reich?

Go to AcesHighs site and download his SUPERB IL-2mat utility (actually it was programmed by another guy, but he provides the corrected markings). Allows you to use any markings you want. Sorry, don't have the link at hand. Do a web search, or go to http://www.simhq.com
