iron ass pilot?

I'm a little confused about why Iron Ass has an African American pilot in DCS. QP were the call letters for the 334th FS of the 4th FG in WW2. The pilot of Iron Ass was Lieutenant Colonel Jack Oberhansly (definitely a white dude!). Did someone confuse the paint scheme for the famous 'Red Tails' of the 99th FS?

IIRC, when the P-51 was released, only the Redtail skin had an African American pilot. It sounds like somebody decided to fix something that wasn't broken in the first place.

Yea, someone must have mistaken the markings as of the " Redtail " if look a little closer..you can clearly see the tail is not fully engulfed in red..as the " Redtails" were..honest mistake...:thumbup:
