v.47 of all missions updated
1. new A20 and Ju88 assets added to all missions on the server.
2. Updated the afternoon/ evening missions on the server. At about 2010 hours (in mission time) just as it is getting dark, a number of searchlights will now activate at the main population centres in France (Le Havre, Cherbourg, Caen and St. Lo).
If you happen to be flying during the last 20 minutes of these missions the lights should now blink on as it gets dark.
Normally people depart the server as missions close, so this is a little treat for the few who stick it out to the end

Change details:
Added more ships on all missions, to allow for more anti-shipping strikes

New SRS version installed

All missions on the server updated to v51
- Player can change aircraft skin has now been DISABLED. It is no longer possible to change the skin. This is because some players have been using the fantasy (Japanese etc.) skins on their aircraft. All skins will now be historical in nature. Tail numbers should still be editable for both allied and axis aircraft. All aircraft which belong to the same units should have the same skin.
Skins on the FW190 A8 in particular have been updated to match this post here:

All missions updated to v.53

- new RADAR code added, thanks to Wiggy for helping me with this. This should reduce the chances that radar will report a landed contact, and will prevent people chasing after aircraft which are not flying.
- moved some units around
- changed Channel C on all allied aircraft to 131 Mhz and added note to briefings
