Where camouflage is mentioned, it is described as grey and duck-egg (or eggshell) blue; tactical markings are "normal size"; fuselage crosses without an outline; fuel triangles are for 87 octane. Sub-types are as recorded, probably from fuselage plates or cockpit record cards. Field Intelligence Teams do not seem generally to have made deductions from Werk Nummer series, e.g that 163704 was a G-6 or that 441303 was a G-6/U4.
