Austria

Austrian Air Force (Osterreichische Luftstreitkrafte)

1918 to 1922


Rudder

Rudder

Following the breakup of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a German-Austrian Flying Troop (Deutschosterreichische Fliegertruppe) was founded as an air policing service, with ex-wartime crews and aircraft. In 1922 the DF was ordered to be disbanded by the Allied Control Commission. Previous markigns covered over. Red/White/Red striping has been applied on the rudder and both surfaces of the elevators. Sometimes the White striping has been inexpertly applied, or has worn off, as the early style tail cross is still very visible, as is the camouflage on the elevators.

1936 to 1938


Main

Rudder

On 1 April 1936 the Austrian Republic regained full sovereignty, although it was still prohibited from having any military aircraft. Even so, the Austrian Army quickly set up an Air Force. The main marking is displayed in the standard six positions. Rudder carried horizontal red/white/red stripes.

Example: Caproni Ca.133/Ca.148
Example: Fiat CR.32

1938 to 1955

On 13 March 1938 Austria was incorporated into Germany, and the Air Force merged with the Luftwaffe. The country was liberated by Western and Russian forces in 1945. A republic was re-established on 27 April 1945. But coutry was divided into four parts and occupied by USSR, USA, UK and France armies. In July 1955 the foreign armies ended its occupation, on condition that Austria remained strictly neutral. On 15 May 1955 Austria was re-established as a sovereign state. The present Air Force was formed in the same year.

1955 to Present


Main

The main marking is displayed on the fuselage sides of the helicopters, and in the standard six positions on aircraft. A fin flash is not carried. Aircraft do not carry service titles.
