That's very nice of you to offer ActionJoe,
But planning for this event actually starts in December of the previous year, so that sort of stuff has been locked in stone at this point. I can tell you that extensive research was done on the involved aerodromes, jastas and escadrilles in preparation.
I wish we had Farman 40s, Vickers gun busses, early war Albatross 2 seaters, Caudrons, and Moranes to be able to represent the French/German forces to their fullest but yes we use what we've got!
Ok, however, will we use default skins for FE2 and Strutters? I have made a small pack skinpack of Farmans and Strutters (1A2 & 1B1) skins, blanks and with different escadrille (that participated the battle) emblems, that could help, IMHO, to enhance the immersion.
Feel free to do what you want with it-I understand that some don't like 'fake' skins, and since it is you event it is your decision at the end.
