Here you can find various aircraft/skins flown by Czechoslovak pilots. As a matter of fact, they were created for playing the 'Czechoslovak Squadron Pack' but of course can be used for playing all EAW campaigns and Single Missions, if they fit there. You can find here a lot of aircraft, such as fighters, bombers, heavy 4-engined bombers, etc. The planes are from France, RAF, Soviet Air Forces, Slovak National Uprising Air Force, etc. They are from several authors (click on author's name to contact) and are sorted historical correct, as the pilots used them - chronologically/by type (e.g. Spitfire is under the Hurricane, Liberator under the Wellington, etc...). You can find more about the pilot/unit when it's 'active'. Please note that not all of the ZIP files are containing a complete skin. Sometimes a file is missing, in many cases the cockpit & virtual wing view files. But almost in every file are the PCX files for futher 'remakes' You can edit them freely and as you want.

_________________________________

A skin of 311's Liberator, one of the most famous and useful bomb squadrons of the RAF. The No. 311 was formed in 1940, mostly from Czechoslovak bomber pilots and was equipped with two engined light bombers Vickers Wellingtons. During dangerous night flights, in war years 40 - 43, when the 311 was attacking targets in France, Holland, Belgium, but even in the very Germany, their pilots showed high courage and devotion. The 311 became one of the best Bomber Command units ever. It earned 'Special' status in 1941. For thier great job, but even bacause that a captured Czech pilot was for Germans 'Reich Verräter' - 'Traitor of the Reich', the 311 was in 1943 relocated to Coastal Command and was, as one of the first RAF units, equipped with the most modern four engined Liberators. From that their work was patrolling against U-Boots and ships over the 'Seas and Ocean'. The No. 311 is sometimes ranked as the best Royal Air Force bombardament unit ever.

Two Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6's (WNr.161 742 and WNr.161 713) were used by Slovakian Insurgent Air Force during September and October 1944 from Tri Duby airfield in Slovakia. Two Slovak pilots - Sgt Rudolf Bozik (22 victories - 17 Russian, 1 American and 4 German aircraft!) and Sgt Frantisek Cyprich - destroyed three Luftwaffe Junkers Ju 88A-4's and two Focke Wulf Fw 189's. The new insignia was combined with Czechoslovak insignia from early 1939 and with Slovak double cross and Slovak mountains. The blue Slovak war cross and tactical number were overpainted with khaki color.
