Are you going to leave the kill rings as they are

S! Kliegmann,

Can your explain about the kill rings? I didn't add any of those? Are you talking about the JG1 insignia that is added to the tanks?
At this time, no updates for any tank kills or any other real life stuff will be updated.
Like I already said, nothing was made to be authentic or historic for these Unofficial WW2 'Tank Crew' skins! 

--- edited ---

Oh, the rings around the barrels of the main gun!!! No, those are just visuals for the look! Nothing about real life Tank killing! Thanks for the info!

Nice skins, will download them on the PC (now on iPad).

NB! Be aware that with winter skins you still are seen in the default green/sand colour by anyone who haven’t downloaded the Skin packs. If you want a winter skin take one from the official skin set. The same goes for the A/C skins. That’s one reason we don’t do A/C winter skins.

Just my opinion: I would remove the kill rings from the (Tiger and Panther) barrel, those feel like stolen valour. They were never official and the ratio between the rings and kills is not clear, also they stand for what? A tank, a vehicle, an AT-gun, an AT-team? Wittmann’s last Tiger for example wasn’t painted with 100+ rings and the tankbuster champion Knispel carried none on his.

S! Heinrich,

Like explain to our historic buff... those were never use or put in to show in any form any kill rings... so for now, I won't adjust any skins because of symbolic that are historic. 
As for the Winter skins, they are also optional... but even for the 'Tank Crew' summer skins to be seen, they need to be downloaded by the people playing on the same server.
At this time, this is the reality in IL2 Great Battles... for plane or tank skins!

But I thank you for your opinion... I do accept them!

Cheers,
GenMarkof

S! All,

Take note that I will do this week or next the unofficial JG1 Tank Crew paints for these JG1 tankers:

- JG1 Dudley  (Number 712)  emblem from the JG I ‘RICHTHOFEN’
- JG1 AngryGoat  (Number 612) emblem from the JG 1 ‘OESAU’ special request for the M4A2 “Sherman” - marking  "boom stick" on the side of the barrel like "fury".

If you should have the game and want the Unofficial JG1 tanks skins, please inform me by the end of this week (Nov. 27), thx!

Cheers,
GenMarkof
