Hola to any Puerto Ricans here (if there are any) and to everyone else! Sorry but my Spanish is not so good. I have a good friend who is PR living here in Fort Worth, TX and she is proud of her homeland, Puerto Rico!

I thought I might start a PR project or see if there are any campaigns/missions or skins with a PR flair already available.

If you know of anything available to download then let me know.
If you can only write in Spanish that's OK. I have a translator!

Tell her if she gets the skin I'll make her a skin with Coqui nose art.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif (I'm not PR but from Da Bronx.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif )

Unfortunately, being under US administration, PR had no proper Air Force, nor used any special markings (PR pilots in the USAAF using the regular stuff), so there are no historical PR skins I can think of. Anyway, I guess a fictional PR skin could be made. So go on searching -though it's unlikely you find it.

I had a feeling there would not be anything since I already knew they did not have an air force. They do have an Air National Guard though. This project would have to be pure fantasy. The link below is to a pic I have on photobucket and it shows a PR ANG F-16 and a "Bucaneros" badge. (I still have not learned how to post an image on here).

if you can get me a better img of that "Bucaneros" regimental i can make you the regimental & a nose art of it.

this is why i so want user control over regimentals in SoW. Not every single virtual squadron in this sim is a historical one. whilke most are there are quite a few that aren't. I'm so hoping Oleg makes a tool set to add these in for BoB.

Thanks Copperhead. That's the best badge pic I could get. I'll see if I can do better or look for better.

Yeah i can't do anything with that bro. keep looking for something a lil larger and clearer.
the flag is perfect though i may toy around with it this week as a nose art file. gota remmber how to do those though.
