When you go hunting you don't wear a deer costume.
Hardly a proper comparison. There's nothing wrong with the Brisfit painted red & white. If it has the British markings on it, it's the other pilots responsibility to know what they're shooting at.
Some French aircraft were colourfully painted, The person pulling the trigger is responsible at all times for what they're shooting at. Don't try and shift the blame to the other person for your mistake.
As long as the plane has proper national markings, the blame lies with the person pulling the trigger.
Know what you're shooting at. Shooting at something simply because it's painted painted a certain colour will get you court martialled every time.
Much like anyone else with a single bit of experience in mutliplayer, I shoot based on shape and camo. Nothing more nothing less, for the simple reasons that there's too many smart kids out there flying planes with opposing markings, so Gav's comparison is in fact right. I am not taking any chances against a two-seater and so do most people.
If you fly a plane that looks Central, heck that is knowingly designed to look Central, its your problem if you get shot in the face by friendlies. You can't expect to come out of a war alive if you decide it's smart to show up in the enemy's uniform.
Sorry, voted no.
