Default More flare

Don't know if it is a bug but when 109 was release we had some flare of each color. Now we have 1 flare for each color.

Is it possible to get some flare for each color or (at least) the choice to have 4 of one color ?

Thanks

I got questions about flares in bf 109, since engine is not producing so much volume of hot gases i think this flare should act like a good countermeasure against heat seeking missiles.
Is flare from bf 109 modeled as countermeasure in DCS ?

Tried against a F15 (for fun) ... Spoiler Alert : Crew chief was a bit mad at me ^^
But as you can only fire flare one by one and slowly, I don't think it would work. And more, I think modern flare are made to get high temperature. WW2 flares are maybe not as hot as the modern one (don't know about them but I imagine).

The real interest for my request is that we use flare to recover groups after a fight. So In 109, leader can fire a flare to recover his wingmen. But it's a bit tricky since :
"I'm the green one ... you see me now ... no?"
"Okay now I'm the red one ... Now I'm the yellow ... And now finally I'm the White one" ^^

Would be nice to choose color of all flares or to have more of each color for this application.
