Regarding my viewpoint about CSA expansions:

As i see it, the CSA was maybe the least successful expansionist country of North America. They relied heavily on foreign weaponry importations to equip their armies, navies and, later on, airforces while the industrialization process was still going on, at least to achieve the industrialization levels of their nothern neighbours.

They even suffered a considerable territorial loss because of their constitucional policy of giving more autonomy to the states. That's how a referendum was hold in Texas in 1885 and they became independent while mantaining very good relations with their old partners.

Does it mean they didn't expand? No. In 1898 they waged a war with Spain to conquest Cuba and they got it and Cuba was annexed as another state of the Confederation being Puerto Rico a mere possession.

However Cuba proved to be a nightmare fueled by the corrupt local government and the acts of guerrillas in the Cuban wilderness feed by the independentist will first and, later on, also by communist, leftist groups.
That's how Cuba became the CSA's Vietnam in this timeline and where this pic fits:

Confederate States of America (CSA), Hawker Hunter FGA9:

They decided to buy some Hunters to the United Kingdom after they proved to be very successful in bombarding rebel positions in Oman.
None of the CSA material is showing up

You are quoting a post from 2014. This is probably one of the weirder ways to necropost, but I wouldn't expect the original content to still be there after all the various image hosts have gone belly up.

Send the original author a PM next time.

(copied from my original dA description lol)

As part of the numerous spoils of war collected by Germany during the early stages of Barbarossa, Romania received about 48 of the early models (included without the Berezin-UBT turret/VYa cannons and a metal-based fuselage,) complete with spare 20mm ShVAK rounds and numerous 7.62mm ammunition. In service, it was called "Conducător" (leader), apparently after Ion Antonescu.

With payloads, they were outfitted with German-based bombs such as the SCs and at times, captured RS-82 rockets. Sometimes, anti-personal "butterfly" bombs were used to deadly effect against partisans operating behind Axis lines.

The first usage of it was during the siege of Sevastopol in June 1942, after familiarization of the controls and the reverting of instructions from Russian to Romanian by pilots. Mistaken for their own, the defenders were surprised at the sight of their own planes attacking their lines, but only after the sight of St. Michael's Cross and the Romanian tricolor they recognized it as not one of theirs.

The second round came at Stalingrad, where it stuck defenders located in houses with usually SC250 bombs. In conjunction with SM.84B bombers and escorts, it was a menace to Soviet anti-aircraft crews, but they pulled back to Romania for home defense in Ploiesti before Uranus occurred in November.

By the time Michael launched the coup against Antonescu in 1944, almost 3/4 of the Il-2s were lost to enemy fire, landing incidents, friendly fire shoot downs, and much more, for about two thousand targets destroyed, fifty planes destroyed on the ground, and three B-24 bombers of the USAAF.

The sole example with Romanian markings and controls resides in the Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, CA as a static display.

This is the Arsenal Aeronautique Belette Helicopter (Reconaitre - Armée), a 1978 attack helicopter based in the Alouette III mechanics (via the real life Atlas Alpha ;) ) and the fenestron tail of the Gazelle, it was a nimble machine, armed with a 20 mm chin gun, and 4 TOW missiles, it was quite powerful for its size and category.
Credits: Unfortunatelly, I only had in my helicopter archive the Gazelle without credits, so I ask a hand to identify the original artist and then correct this file with the proper credits. Cheers and thanks.

That's a very neat looking little chopper, I find it attractive and not too overly ambitious.
If anything, I'd add a bit more detail or highlighting to the windows.

Two 109G-10s of the IJAAF, maybe done without reason or straight up boredom.
