    Do you know if drawing like that are allowed by the ierarchy, or they're just individual initiatives?

    Yes, of course I knew about the concept of tail markings in HAF, that wasn't my question. I asked whether the scheme on the 337th was individual effort or ordered for application from higher ranks in HAF on all planes of the squadron.

    When those planes where inducted, nearly 3 years ago, they didn't have any "tail marking..." (despite its similarity to the unit's patch), hence my question.

    From the beginning, I didn't ask you about the design itself. I was wondering if the application of a tail scheme was an individual effort or not (ie higher-up order). I haven't seen any other images of the scheme appart from the 3 above and that's why I wondered about it. Read up.

    Enallos , a unit tail marking implies that ALL the aircraft of the squadron fly it ,how can it possibly be an individual effort ?

    we're not talking about a display aircraft with some colourfull tail art, we're talking about unit insignia here .Maybe you should read up

    Yeah well the unit's insignia differs from that design (at least according to the current HAF's webpage). I don't need to point out the differences.

    I have a valid question from the beginning, I just need appropriate answers if anyone has them. If not that's OK.
