    Fairline, Tanelorn, Erika, and Typhoon: These units are incredible! How long have you all been drawing pixel art?

    EDIT: Removed Curt from that list and added Fairline, who I hilariously forgot.

    Oops, I thought I had seen your name reading through this and the other unit threads. Forgive me, I'm reading through all this incredible pixel-art en masse, years later, and getting people confused. You're the cities guy, and I saw some of your icons as well. I posted my compliment in the wrong thread. :)

    I'm not really any sort of units/city guy. I just make the odd scenario from time to time.

    @Tanelorn I seem to remember you put out an early Cold War Yugoslav Ikarus S-49 once, but I could be mistaking it for the IK-2 and IK-3 I know you did put out. Anyways, if you ever did release the S-49, the file (or collection) it's on doesn't have a name that immediately bespeaks of it. Thus, I was wondering there.

    Yes, it was both the IK2 and 3. I was thinking about making a Tito-Stalin split "informbiro" period yugo airforce set. Yugoslavia was an informal Nato ally between 1948 and 1956 or so.

    Out of curiosity, and more for posterity than pressing need (at least at this point - you never know who may need what for future scenarios), would you be willing to take on such a set? No pressure, as usual - another "it would be nice" thing, really.

    @Patine
    Why does a Yugo have rear a window defroster?
    To keep your hands warm as you push it. :lol:

    Messerschmitt Bf-109G= 76 1947-1954 (ex-Bulgarian)

    And a repost of the rest:

    The Tito-Stalin split coincided with the Korean war and Truman pumped military aid (seen in the previous post) to Yugoslavia, as they anticipated a Soviet invasion...
    The Tito-Stalin split was also one of the reasons the Greek civil war eventualy ended.
    This was continued by Eisenhower and included:
    219 Republic F-84G Thunderjetfighter bombers 1953- 1974 (some ex-Greek)
    43 Canadair CL-13 Mk.IV Sabre 1956-1974 (former RAF). 78 North American F-86E Sabre 1959-1974.
    130 North American F-86D Sabre Dog 1959-1974 (ex-USAF)

    These look awesome, as usual! What were they using (or left with) by the time the country started falling apart in 1990, out of curiosity?

    @Patine These guys mainly

    Since Khrushchev got in power from 1955 onwards relations with the USSR improved dramatically and Tito switched back into the Soviet sphere in the early 1960’s, at the height of the Cold War...
    45 Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-21F-13 Fishbed C 1962-1980
    36 MiG-21PFM Fishbed F 1967-1994
    25 MiG-21M Fishbed J 1970- 1996
    6 MiG-21MF Fishbed J 1975- 1996
    100 MiG-21bis Fishbed L in 1977- (a small number, remain in service with the Serbian Air Force today).
    plus several recce and trainer variants of the Mig-21
    They also produced 132 homegrown Soko G-2A (N-60) Galeb1965- (some in reserve in Serbia?) and 103 Soko J-21 Jastreb 1968-1996 to replace their American jets.
    These were followed by 27 Orao-1 1979-1997 and 50/58 Orao-2 from 1986 onwards (in service with Serbia) in cooperation with Romania and British engines.
    In 1984 they started receiving 90 G-4 Super Galebs, still in Serbian service (about 20)
    In 1987 they got 14+2 Mig-29, six were shot by Nato in 1999. They have been supplemented by four aircraft from Russia and two from Belarus a couple of years ago.
    I should say that after the Warsaw pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 Yugoslavia and Romania "teamed up" and their relations with the USSR deteriorated again, but it is complicated.
