Default RNZAF Skin?

Any chance we could get an RNZAF skin?





Would be cool to use along with the A-4 Mod.

Agreed! An RNZAF paintscheme would be really nice. (Especially if the tail-numbers are not hard-baked on, and could be changed via the mission editor.)

I'm thinking of using it over the upcoming Marianas map. Those RNZAF markings would be perfect for some Pacific Island scenarios.

Thanks for the pointer! I did a bit of searching and found a few other ideas too. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...h/?tags=MB-339


However, getting them "official" (esp. the historical ones) means that they can be used in multiplayer scenarios without requiring players to download skins/mods, and that would be cool.

Yes but from a historical point of view they are not correct as DCS: MB-339 will be the A/PAN version.
For example the RNZAF MB339 is a CB version which is different and more advanced than the one simulated in this module.

I was not aware of the distinction... thanks for pointing that out. That's led me to some interesting reading. (Which is why I love aviation forums... always getting to learn something new!)

Anyway.... I've been trying to find a good reference which shows the differences. Do you know of anything? Most just list the type and the different country/weapon configuration. I was sort of after some good side-by-side pictures (difficult, I know, but I figured I'd ask).

Even if they are not totally identical, I still think an RNZAF paintscheme would be better than, say, something totally fictional.
