Introduction

The Fuerza Aérea del Paraguay was formed in 1927 as the Fuerzas Aéreas del Ejército Nacional Paraguayo and changed its name in 1932 to the Fuerzas Aéreas Nacionales del Paraguay. It was dissolved in 1938 and reformed in 1946.

Fin Flash

Aircraft Fin Flash
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

According to the book [cos98], from 1929-1938 the wing tip had diagonal stripes of blue-white-red and the rudder had horizontal stripes of red-white-blue, with yellow star on the white stripes. Book [cos98] also reports that in 1945 the rudder stripes were converted into fin flash, without the star. Photo at AeroFlight.Co.UK shows a fin flash with yellow star. Note that photos in Insignia magazine (“Paraguayan Bombers in the Gran Chaco War”, i.e., 1928-1935) show the rudder stripes (even though without the star as a photo at AirLiners.NET). Hoowever, such fin flash is probably in use only on combat planes as seen at the FighterJocks website.

According to the book [cos98], this roundel was adopted in 1945. However, Insignia magazine shows the roundel well before 1945 in an article “Paraguayan Bombers in the Gran Chaco War” (1928-1935).

The book [cos98] also reports that the Naval air arm uses the same roundel but uperinposed by an anchor, and that the Army aviation uses it also, with no modifications.

Excuse my ignorance on air force markings, but how is this roundel supposed to be different from the French Air Force one?
