    Hi all,

    does someone know how were named the planes in a soviet flight (Zveno) compared to the classic RAF red/yellow/blue/green ?

    Thanks in advance,

    fco

    For the RAF, a squadron was done with Flights A, B,...etc
    Each Flight ,or finger four for example, have a colour name assigned in the setting of the flight for a mission.
    The first finger four was called Red with Red leader, Red2, Red 3 and Red4
    The second one, Blue
    The third, Yellow
    The fourth Green ...etc.

    What I would like to know is "did the SSV have the same kind of radio codes for the flight sections (called Zveno)? Red, yellow .... ? :?:
    How did they called between each other by the radio during their mission ?
    By their numbers ?
    Or again, how a leader of ZVeno call his wingman on the radio ?

    Hope my question is clearer now ? :D

    Thank you in advance for your help. :D

    Here is the basic structure of the Soviet Air Armies in WW2:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_army_(Soviet_Union)

    With the structure similar to that of the army the lower levels of the fighter division are split into regiments (not sure on the number of aircraft). As for the names of the flights (~3-5 aircraft from what I've read) I couldn't find anything substantial (no doubt because I can't read Russian which most of the resources are in). I did read some brief references to Colours designating aircraft eg. White 7 but nothing about flights (AAR - Russian Front 3rd IAK VVS - SUBSIM Radio Room Forums.

    No doubt someone who understands Russian will be a better help than I can.

    And on a side note best to ignore "fly boy"...

    We had some Russian members, but haven't seen them lately. You could try and PM them.
