Amscot - Do you mean in campaign? .. in campaign you are limited to the regiments that participated in the campain you have selected.
But - you can - in the arming screen switch to an imported skin with whatever regiment patch it has on it. Just switch 'markings' OFF after selecting your custom skin.

And you can change regiments in the QMB or in the FMB if you want to..

Thanks, I do know all that. I mean those squadron crests that the games adds to the aircraft just forward of the cockpit on the port side. They stay there regardless id I switch the markings on of off. There are no corresponding .tga files anywhere. If I check the cache dir when running, the .mat file (for example RAF 134 Sqn) lists "..\red\RAF134_Squadron.tga" as the image source, but there is no "..\red" directory. All the Luft, VVS, US, and others are in the \Regiments dir as .tga files. I'm really stumped.

Know what you mean, those things are bloody annoying, one of the reasons why I always fly RAF birds with third party skins.

For the life of me, I can't see why on earth the 1C artist responsible decided they should be there and hope to God they don't turn up in BoB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

look for il2mat manager.

What you'll need to do is to use the il2mat program that comes with it to change all the RAF squadrons to use a different insignia - either use your own or make a blank tga file which you'll use in place of those ingame ones.
