Project "Swiss Air Force"

The skins are based on real schemes of Bf-109E-3a and Bf-109G-6 used by the Swiss Air Force from 1939 to 1949 as close as possible. It is a collaboration work together with VPS_SPIT and the skins will be split into different skin packs:

 

  • Early World War 2: Swiss Air Force 1939 (J-316 & J-333)
  • Midst of World War 2: Swiss Air Force 1940 Staffel 6 & 15 (J-318, J-346 & J-374)
  • Midst of World War 2: Swiss Air Force 1940 Staffel 8 & 21 (J-345, J-356 & J-362)
  • End of World War 2: Swiss Air Force 1945 - 1948 (J-313, J-387 & J-704)

 

At the beginning of World War 2 the Bf-109D and Bf-109E-3a used the typical German scheme of this time (RLM70/71/65) with huge immatriculation numbers on the fuselage.

Later in the war, the colour scheme changed to RLM70/Swiss manufactured KW 1 Blue-Grey and the Red and White Neutrality stripes were added.

At the end of the War the red band on the fuselage was removed and some old paints were used up (like the Gelb/Beige from "Muster 38" used on the repaired J-704).

I finally got the right immatriculation font right for all planes and added J-316 and J-318 to the skin pack. J-316 shows the very early camouflage from 1939 to 1940 which still got RLM71 on the upperside beside RLM70. RLM71 were overpainted with RLM70 after maintenance work. Tomorrow I'll add more Bf-109E-3a skins to the pack.

Together with VPS_Spit we are updating our Bf-109 E-3a and G-6 inspired skins for DCS 2.5 and re-create them as close as possible. We are really nitpicking on details like correct decals on the correct airplanes :smartass:

 

In the same time we also create vehicle in the colors of the Swiss Armed Forces around World War 2. Some are fictional (e.g. Opel Blitz) but some are based on real equipment like the CCKW-353 and the Willy MB.

Thanks for sharing .. I’m glad to see more liveries for ww2 ground vehicles, they can be used not only for swiss forces :thumbup:

 

I hope ED will keep adding more Ww2 AI planes, I’d love to have a Ju-52 for use as RAT background air traffic :)

VPS_Spit and myself are currently updating the skin pack in a collaboration work. In the same time we split the pack into smaller packs of the same era because we also add skins based on the Swiss used Bf-109G-6.

 

The first pack released is Swiss Air Force 1945 - 1948. Please find details in the first post.
