    French aircraft at German airfield

    Hi

    I'm flying the ETO "Phoney War" campaign as a German and we are stationed at the Wangerooge airfield.

    When I return from missions there are French aircraft parked at our airfield. :isadizzy:

    Any ideas why this happens?

    Cheers

    Defectors or turncoats?? (They look rather Polish to me...)

    My thoughts: You can look in the airfield's .xml to see if the French aircraft are 'set' (=called on by a specific model name) or are added by using a 'joker' (such as '#fighters'). In the first case, the nationality/owner of the airfield is fixed and can only be altered by changing the entries in the .xml. In the second case, the vehicles and aircraft are changed whenever the airfield changes hands: If you capture an airfield, all vehicles and aircraft are changed to your nationality to reflect your victory.
    I am not sure that the game engine only uses your own nationality. It might be that it uses models from your general allegiance (Allied vs. Axis), meaning that you could also find yourself surrounded by Italian aircraft and vehicles or so. It has been too long since I flew (a piece of) a campaign. I spend all my time doing models... ;-)

    They aren't pro-Vichy! They're Polish - that lot wouldn't surrender if you stuck a gun in their ears. I think they've run out of petrol and landed, and stolen a boat to get to England to join the RAF and kill more Huns.

    As Frosty says, the aircraft should change nationality as the front line moves forward over them.

    That airbase is airbase_single_3-Germany36.xml and the entires are correct #fighter_bomber#1 and #fighter_bomber#

    So it may be that that particular a/c has it's allegience set incorrectly. I had a quick look through the aircraft folder but couldn't see it.

    anyone know?
