I am in the process of doing a mod based on Scenario 2 but beefing up the Allies a bit - one aspect of this is that the French agree to a slightly higher commitment to the Pacific Theatre but because of their production limitations they insist that the British will need to provide aircraft replacements.

e.g. for the fighter contingent.....
2*MS406 and 1*Po631 squadrons get no replacements of this type so will eventually need to convert to Hurricanes.

At the moment i have done a quick fix by just changing the upgrade path in the Air Groups section to cover all the Hurricane Models. Am i right in thinking this will work, even though its a "French" Squadron but replacements are coming from the "British" Aircraft Pool?

I realize this is far from ideal as the plane graphic will be wrong so i really need to set up a duplicate plane type. If anyone with graphic skills is willing to help with some artwork it would be very much appreciated. (i assume its just copy/pasting the French roundels over the British ones??). However its not just the Hurricane, there will be a few (about 6 maybe) other British/American planes that will need French/Dutch roundels.

Many thanks

It should work.
