Need Help with Squad Emblems and Insignia

Everyone,

 

Our new Career will feature emblems and insignia for each squadron available for both the VVS and Luftwaffe. 

 

The image should be 512 x 512 pixels at least with preferably a transparent background like in .png format.

 

If a squad had no specific historical emblem (Soviet squads mostly did not) than we need to crate a fictional emblem/insignia. For example - some kind of regimental red banner embroidered with the name of the regiment or maybe a Guards insignia. You can get a little creative, but it should try to look convincing. Maybe like a regimental flag that would be hung in a squadron HQ. 

 

We did this for Rise of Flight, but the emblems are small. However, there is a large collection of them and they look cool when they appear in the Career. We want to expand on this idea in IL-2.

 

Help us make cool emblems and insignia. If you have already created a collection of them please post in this forum and we will be in touch to discuss using them.

 

If you would like to post references for us of actual squad emblems or actual artwork that is ready to go, please do so in the thread below.

 

Jason

Todo el mundo,

 

Nuestra nueva carrera contará con emblemas e insignias para cada escuadra disponible tanto para la VVS y la Luftwaffe. 

 

La imagen debe ser de 512 x 512 píxeles como mínimo, preferentemente con un fondo transparente como en formato .png.

 

Si un equipo no tenía el emblema histórico específico (escuadrones de la Unión Soviética en su mayoría no lo hicieron) de lo que necesitamos para crear una película de ficción emblema / insignia. Por ejemplo - una especie de bandera roja regimiento bordado con el nombre del regimiento o tal vez una insignia de la Guardia. Puede ser un poco creativo, pero debe tratar de parecer convincente. Tal vez como una bandera de regimiento que se colgó en un HQ escuadra. 

 

Hicimos esto para Rise of Flight, pero los emblemas son pequeñas. Sin embargo, hay una gran colección de ellos y verse bien cuando aparecen en la carrera. Queremos ampliar esta idea de la IL-2.

 

Ayúdanos a hacer fresco emblemas e insignias. Si ya ha creado una colección de ellos por favor escribir en este foro y estaremos en contacto para discutir el uso de ellos.

 

Si usted quisiera fijar referencias para nosotros de emblemas o escuadrones de la obra de arte reales real que está listo para ir, puede hacerlo en el hilo de abajo.

Hello Jason,
 
I'm a graphic designer by profession
 
You could put a graphic example on the emblem you need for the film. I do not really understand you need. Historical emblems of the Luftwaffe are easy to find on the internet. Perhaps it mean to create an emblem invented within a banner of an alleged Russian squadron regiment?
 
 
Sincerely

Kampfgeschwader 4 "General Wever"

 

post-20-0-21095000-1475910346_thumb.png

 

Can be used for all three Gruppen of KG 4, but photographic evidence is a little bit sketchy as to the application of this emblem after the Battle of Britain. It was certainly used as unit badge (as it was the family crest of the Wever family).

Again photographic evidence on aircraft during the campaign in the Soviet Union remains sketchy.

Used by the entire Geschwader and its use on aircraft operating over the Soviet Union can be confirmed.

In I./StG 2 the Gruppenstab and all three component Staffeln featured a variant of the "Terrier" emblem underlaid by the tactical colour (as prescribed by the Luftwaffe colour system).

Wrong for 3rd Staffel.

It kept Coat of Arms of Breslau, where it was formed as 3./St.G.153 back in  1937. This emblem was used untill spring 1943.

Hi Spektre.

These are the emblems corresponding to the five Spanish squadrons that fought in Russia.

​Thank you very much for your great work.

II. (Schlacht) / Lehrgeschwader 2

Even though the emblems have their roots in the Battle of Britain and that the "Infanteriesturmabzeichen" badge would slowly replace the individual unit badges during "Barbarossa" there are pics that are supposedly dated summer 1941 showing Bf 109 with those emblems.

 

On January 1942 the unit was redesignated as

I./SchG 1 utilized variations of ex-4./LG 2's unit badge when its former Staffelkapitän Alfred Druschel was promoted to command of I./SchG 2 in early 1942. It is possible that the Geschwaderstab did not use that emblem until Druschel took over command of SchG 1 in 1943. I have it included as an option.

Gents,

 

This is a link to a few books that can be bought, but not sure if this is the type of thing that you would wish to use.

Just a thought.

 

However, it looks like you might have enough for the period you require.

Thanks brother!

 

 

Here is an updated 4a Azul emblem:

 

 

 

attachicon.gif4a Azul.png

 

 

Dear Spektre:

Thankyou very much. It's a very good job.

But I'm afraid that this emblem its not historically correct. After a lot of research I never found a time war picture were appears such emblem.

Its true that this emblem is in this magazine:

0Ts15q.jpg

As you can see, it says Fw 190 of de 3ª Escuadrilla in Orel, but inside the spanish flag shield is represented the emblem of the 4ª Escuadrilla.

 

And allso in this model kid:

3Sj89L.jpg

 

But apart from these two references, there are nothing that makes me thing that they are historical accurate.

​What is sure is that the emblem of the forth Escuadrilla is this:

wW8D1M.jpg

I also failed to find any 15./JG51 Fw190 photo with any emblem. Just number and thats all. Seems, in Spanish Staffel followed general JG51 tradition, who abandoned all emblems totally.
