          There was a squadron III./JG52(later), the authors of the film invented the "diamonds".

            I./JG50 - perhaps this squadron was associated with an ace of diamonds.

              The squadrons in the Luftwaffe were indicated by Arabic numerals-1,2,3 ... And III / 52 is read as the third group of 52 squadrons ...
              As an emblem, the JG53 Pik As carried an ace of spades inscribed in a vertical white rhombus, which in its configuration resembled a tambourine suit. On JG52 airplanes, the red cross inscribed in a vertical white rhombus, which can also be called a diamonds, was a stretch. There was also a JG54 Green heart, but it is rather a green ace of worms. And the fact that the JG50 managed to acquire an emblem, let alone fight on the eastern front, is generally tormented by vague doubts. It was formed on 15.08 43-disbanded at the end of October 1943, the personnel and equipment entered JG301 composition.

        And what, coloring prevents to fight? Or reduces the bomb load?

          A total of 175 F4-F “Phantom” for 40 years
          were in service with the German Air Force. Side 37 + 01, painted
          in a blue and gold color will be left as a monument in Wittmundhafen.
          On June 30.06.2013, XNUMX, the Phantoms retirement air show was held at Wittmundhafen.

          The air show on "Phantoms" was performed by the pilots of Jagdgeschwader 71 "Richthofen".

          Among the German pilots "Phantom" received the nickname: "Eisenschwein" also "Luftverteidigungsdiesel".

    This is not a war paint - this is "cockfighting" ...
    Do Germans still fly Phantoms?! .. I didn’t know, I didn’t. Amer removed them from service ten to twelve years ago, if only they remained in the national guard. Who has info, share.
    The military has its own idea of ​​the beautiful. And it doesn’t matter from which country the military ...

      Of course, this is a coloring for any window dressing of single cars, over the past 20 years.

      Do Germans still fly Phantoms?

      phantoms only a couple of pieces, in a research center, with the appropriate equipment (flight laboratory) for testing all and all flying equipment. and they’re not going to refuse, it’s painfully good for these purposes.

    The last phantom of the Germans retired on June 29 this year. But among the Greeks, Iranians, Japanese, Koreans, and Turks, they still fly. And with amers they are converted into targets. We would also be able to fly MiGi-23/27 so far, if some people hadn’t sent them to re-melting in the 90s ...

      I watched the transmission through the discovery as something, they have there not only how goals are used. How would the question be, is it not possible to convert the phantom to normal such a non-disposable UAV? In principle, why not ...
      1. Su-9
        Su-9 21 August 2013 09: 41
        Can. Only expensive. In UAVs, all systems are new and integrated. And f4 is controlled by a handle and rods. As a target - normal, as a cheap UAV - it will not work.

    Maybe a little bright or clumsy, but beautiful. Maybe I’m mistaken, but when the Germans start to beat the drums and march the ear you need to keep watch, the Germans know how to fight and do not shy away from it. And do not think that they were piled on them in the Second World War, and after the First World War the French Prime Minister also said that Germany would never rise, and she rose and organized an even greater massacre. The truth is that they now peacefully got what they fought for control of Europe, but nonetheless appetite comes with eating.

    This cross ... Germans are still a great nation.
    Lose our war (CIS), throw out flags, signs and draw new ones so as not to have anything to do with losing ... Each new ruler dismantles everything connected with the previous one. Just like the Arabs - they destroy even that which stood 30 centuries.

    You need to remember your history, culture, language and respect your country and every bush. The jackals cannot be allowed to come and recognize their culture and history better.

    German vehicles in service with the German Luftwaffe are "painted not according to the charter" (sonderlakierung - special painting) in the following cases:

    1. Regarding the anniversary, affecting the given plane or compound.
    2. It so happened that all airplanes and helicopters participating in the annual NATO Tiger Meet exercises are given a "tiger" (and not only) coloring in one form or another. Of course, the boards are not repainted after the competition.
