    And now for something different.
    Belgian Antarctic Expedition and Belgian Dutch Antarctic Expedition used a roundel on their aircraft and vehicles. The roundels vary over the years.

                    Interesting stuff Gerard, I never saw such a roundel before!

                    A variant very similar (with the blue circle) was frequently used on dark painted aircraft after WW2 (navy blue US Navy aircraft by example). But this one…

                      Romanian roundel

                      I have identified at least 9 variants of Romanian roundels, used from early World War 1 to the end of the Communist era in 1989.

                      The use of the first one was confirmed by Gerard in this post some months ago; it was used from around 1914 to sometimes after World War 1:

                        The second roundel was used by Romania until 1941, then again from 1944 to 1947.

                          The next ones were used from 1941 to 1944. There are many subtle variations between them, and for those of us who do models, you'll notice that the decals generally seem fail to render of those variations.

                          First variation was apparently used only in 1941. It has got thick borders and the inside roundel is touching the inner angles of the cross.

                          One variant I have seen only on He 114 seaplanes pictures. The difference is that the outer white line is not continuous (one needs a darker background to see it, and I don't knwo how to change the bachground color of the posts…):

                            Next are two other early (1941-42) subvariants:

                            The first was apparently only used by ace Teodor Moscu. There are many profiles of his aircraft but I couldn't find a single photograph.
                            Edit: this was indeed worn by several He 112 aircraft.

                            The second one was used on several kinf of fighters:

                              Next are the more common variants, used from 1941 to 1944.

                              The first one has thinner borders than the 1941 variant, and a smaller inner roundel.

                              The latest one was used later in thewar (1943-44). It is simplified, with sharp edges at the end of the cross:

                                  Here's another variation, seen on some bf 109G-6 (at least); no picture, only a profile:

                                  And another one, but I haven't found any picture or profile of aircraft using it.

                                  Edit: apparently was used on wings of Heinkel He 111 bombers; I have yet to find a picture of it.

                                    And finally, the communist era roundel, with a picture taken from Gerard site:

                                    Apparently, there was no variation during this long era…


                                    If you have comments, more photograph (especially for the roundels which have none attached), or if you found other roundels, feel free to post!

                                      The only variation is maybe the thicker white line on this Li-2

                                          In your initial post you depicted them as F-15, I agree they are F-4.

                                          Do you know when the picture was taken?
