Variant

Variant

An Air Force directive issued in December 1926 specified a thin outline to the national insignia. This outline was to be Dark Blue when the roundel was applied on surfaces painted in Khaki colour, and Red when on Silver or Light Grey ones. This directive, however, wasn't always strictly adhered to, and many 'non-regulation' combinations appeared during those years. Most notably, all aircraft manufactured by the Avia company sistematically received roundels with a darker 'ink-blue' outline.

Example: Avia B.534

1940 to 1945

During WW2 Czech airmen fought on the Allied side. Some RAF squadrons were all-Czech units and their aircraft carried a small Czech roundels in addition to British markings.

Example: Supermarine Spitfire

1945 to 1992

After the WW-II aircraft of Czechoslovak Republic (1945-1960), Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (1960-1990) and Czech and Slovak Federal Republic (1990-1992) carried old pre-war roundes.

Example: Ilushin Il-10 Beast
Example: Sukhoi Su-7B Fitter/Moujik
