I hate to keep complaining about skins and liveries, but flying the MiG-21 makes it almost impossible to visually IFF between US and Israeli F-15's.

The game already has aggressor skins that are impossible to mistake, is there any reason red doesn't use them for example? That way US and Israeli F-15's can fly on one side which makes more sense?

For most other aircraft this isn't an issue, as the liveries used are pretty different for both sides, but for the F-15 (the most flown aircraft) being the same causes huge headaches for those fighters that can't IFF using equipment instantly.

I second this, also for suggestions, using other factions for red side western fighters, or blue side Russian fighters could be a really good idea, and could add to more realism too. Iranian F-5s for one, so the Blue side players would be forced to see if the F-5 is Green or camo colored and then engage. Or to spot the roundel which makes it more realistic too for WVR engagements.
