Do you get all paints schemes for allies once complete or do you fly the individual planes each to get?  The way I read it is you score 150K points flying US, UK or USSR and get all the schemes listed.  And to get the Axis schemes you have to again score the 150K.  Apologies if it is a stupid question but wanted to get clarification.

What is the bonus provided by these camo schemes? 

I will buy back the planes missing from my hangar to apply this camo.

Has War gaming just given up on this game? you are just recycling all paint schemes  that those of us that have been with the game from the beginning already have  no new planes or models, this game is becoming so boring. The only change and it was a money main scheme was to add the parts that have to be advances improved or tune, which negated years of playing and getting our planes to top performance and were reset to start all over again. Can you guys come out with new planes lie you do tanks or ships?

You read it correctly. You need to score 150 000 personal points flying US, UK or USSR aircraft for the first mission, and 150 000 personal points flying German or Japanese aircraft for the second mission.

The bonus should be +5% aircraft XP.

Dear Blindfold, will it be possible to obtain the chrome camo and nose art for the IL-10M for those who already have the plane?

 

Last year the paint scheme was available as a mission in the IL-10M bundle. Perhaps the mission can be made available for sale individually bundled with gold? I suppose the same can be done with other premium paint schemes, for instance the one for the I-207/4 and others. 

This would fit with the recent re-introduction of various paint schemes. It would also make this IL-10M pilot very happy. :) :honoring:

Hi Panoptic, 

 

I'll pass along your suggestion to the responsible department. We had a simipar offer in February. So, I beleive we'll see new bundles with sets of paint schemes for other planes that haven't been included in the previous offer :honoring:

That would be perfect! :great:

Some premium planes came with interesting nose art. For example the IL-10M dragon, I-180-3 hornet and I-207/4 eagle. It would be nice if we could have an opportunity to obtain them.

It would be fun if qualifying for Specialization awarded extra camo and nose art, even if you don't elect to purchase Specialization.  (because credits are way too tight to Spec most planes)

XP-36F also was initially introduced with special camouflage which I would love to get my hands on:
