Greetings to one and all,
Could someone please tell me what other units the Cr-32 fighters were allocated to after world war 2 other than the 21st Regimento de Caza?
Did the Chirri still equip the 22nd Regimento at this time?
Also I wish to know the date when the fuselage bicolour roundel of red/yellow/red was reinstated with the Ejercito del Aire after WW2.
Thank you in advance for your time.
Hello again Wayne, inmediatly after the second war, the allied wants to "remove" Franco´s regime.
Mister Churchill stoped in Postdam because considered that The Iron Curtain is approaching . He thinks that Franco would be such a dam on the comunist "invasion" in south europe.
Secret agreements were in progress. Enought petrol were sent to Spain from US companies but Franco was requerided to "open" a little bit his fascist regime.
Franco cancelled the paraphernalia only in "cosmetic" ways and write a semi-constitution for the spaniards and everybody happy, except the spanish people.
One of the cosmetic change was the fascist symbols and for this reasons, the old monarchist roundels was adopted in all military planes.
It happened in the spring of 1945.
Regarding the units of the Chirri after the war, let me check and I will be inform you.
Following is your another cuastion in the He-112 matter.
Sorry is not available the camouflage plan but following are some photos.
As you can see in the first shot, the bands are closer to the italian style, not exactly splinter but the colours are spanish copys of 61/62/63 and and darker blue, closer to the russian AMT-17.
A "mint" He-112 shoted inmediatly after received his new finish.
