If you're playing Aces Over Europe without any of the
modifications that have been uploaded to the FSForum Library
(Section 7), you'll have noticed that it's frequently very
difficult to tell friend from foe at a distance...or even up
close. A great many of the aircraft look a great deal alike.
There are, however, some subtle clues that might keep you from
sending one of your wingies down in flames. Tom Oakes
[73122,3505], in a 4 December 1993 post, gave a concise
explanation, and he graciously gave me the go-ahead to upload it.
***** Some quick tips on AOE IFF *****
FW190A - Green and Light Blue Color
FW190D - All Green
Bf 109G&K - Wings look to be swept from a distance (at
least in Tall Res). Wingtips appear squared
off when in closer. 109G has splotch of brown
near the nose on the overall gray at
Spitfire - Elliptical wing can be easily seen.
P-47 - Rounded Wingtips
P-51 - Squared off wingtips like 109's, but with a
little more taper from root to tip.
Tempest - Looks like a "Chunky" spitfire. Green color.
Me-262 - Sound is giveaway here.
P-38 - Twin boom tail.
Mossy - Twin engines.
Hope this helps everyone.
