Default The "Crooked Cross" symbol on LW aircraft tails

Since the unmentionable "Crooked Cross" is illegal in some countries and is a nightmare for others, what about a substitute?

The RAF put a 2 color bar on its vertical.
The LW aircraft in game without the mark is, off, not just becuase it is, but more so compared to the RAF aircraft.

Substitutes mark rejected?

I'd like to propose some sort of symbol for Gay Pride. Or perhaps a pic of Basil Fawlty doing his routine. Henry Kissinger? For the folks at home, David Cameron.

I predict an enormo-thread.

Hopefully the original markings can be put into the game by anyone that wish it.
Censorship is lame, although I can understand it from 1c's viewpoint.

Looking at a swastika or even wanting to have it in a game for immersion and or historical accuracy doesn't make one a Nazi.

From a historical standpoint, I think that the "crooked cross" should be included.
Yes, Hitler was bad, as is what the "crooked cross" represented, but we must all remember history, not just certain parts or things.

Wait for mods. I guarantee this will be one of the first ones.

I personally will enable/skin a Hakenkreuz as soon as possible, German WW2 combat A/C look silly without it, that and the fact that I dont like to be told what i can display in the privacy of my own home.

Guys, not much point in debating the whys and fors, as you all know anyway. Just tell us what you'd stick in there instead, much more amusing.

Why not put a simple iron cross on the tail? German WWI fighters had such a cross if I remember correctly and the Bundeswehr use it too

"I'd like to propose some sort of symbol for Gay Pride."

Hire John Galiano for the design.
I will have soon enough time
