Thank You! :oops:

I'm pleased to announce, that British-made aircraft have been uploadded to the archive, thus leaving only US-made planes to upload (and therefore make the project complete). Unfortunately it's still some 1000 files, so it will take a while.

Also, in the meantime I tweaked a list of Roles/Subroles for aircraft, which now is as follows:

2.2) Air Vehicles

Combat Aircraft
- Bomber
- Dive Bomber
- Electronic Warfare - see Note A1
- Fighter
- Ground Attack - see Note A2
- Interdictor/Strike -see Note A3
- Torpedo-bomber
Military Training Aircraft
- Combat Training Aircraft - see Note A4
- Military Training Aircraft - see Note A5
Reconnaissance Aircraft
- Airborne Early Warning
- ELINT/SIGINT
- Observation/Forward Air Control - see Note A6
- Photographic/General Reconnaissance
Maritime Aircraft
- Maritime Aircraft - see Note A7
Transport Aircraft
- Aerial Refueling Aircraft - see Note A8
- Cargo Transport Aircraft - see Note A9
- Communications/Liaison/Utility Aircraft - see Note A10
- Executive/Government Aircraft
- Passenger Aircraft
Special Mission Aircraft
- Aerial Survey Aircraft - see Note A11
- Airborne Command Post
- Crop Dusting Aircraft
- Environmental Reconnaissance Aircraft - see Note A12
- Experimental / Research Aircraft
- Firefighting Aircraft
- Polar Aviation Aircraft
- Special Operations Aircraft (other)
Light and Sports Aircraft
- Aerobatics Aircraft - see Note A13
- Light Aircraft (general aviation)
- Pioneer Aircraft (pre-1914)
- Racing and Pioneer Flight Aircraft - see Note A14
Helicopters
- Combat Helicopter - see Note A15
- Crop Dusting Helicopter
- Experimental / Research Helicopter
- Heavy Lift Helicopter
- Light Helicopter
- Maritime Helicopter
- Military Training Helicopter
- Special Purpose Helicopter
- Utility Helicopter
Special Air Vehicles
- Annular-wing VTOL aerodyne
- Autogyro
- Compound Gyroplane
- Tiltortor
- (as needed: convertiplanes, tiltrotors, gyrodynes, autogyros... - t.b.d.)
Gliders
- Glider
- Motoglider
Missiles
- Missile
Drones
- Experimental / Research Drone
- Operational Drone
- Target Drone
Space Vehicles
- Booster
- Satellite
- Spacecraft (manned)

Notes:
- Note A1 - includes Wild Weasel aircraft,
- Note A2 - includes Close Support, Counter Insurgency and Gunships,
- Note A3 - post-WW2 deep tactical strike aircraft like Tornado IDS, F-111, Su-24 or JH-7 etc. (also Canberra B(I) 8 and similar models),
- Note A4 - dual-control, combat-capable versions of combat aircraft and combat aircraft used in training units (in which case their 'basic' sub-role must be also included) and purpose-built fighter-trainers (esp. of interwar period)
- Note A5 - includes 'flying classrooms' (for navigator, bombardier or gunner training), may include non-combat-capable versions of combat aircraft,
- Note A6 - artillery spotting aircraft and similar (for example L-4 Cub, O-1 Bird Dog, OA-37, SBLim-2Art and the like)
- Note A7 - military and coast guard patrol, anti-submarine and SAR aircraft,
- Note A8 - includes combat aircraft drawn with refueling (buddy-buddy) pods,
- Note A9 - includes light air ambulance aircraft (but not airliner-sized ones),
- Note A10 - includes all kinds of military transport aircraft except those classed otherwise (as VIP, tanker etc.) and paratrooper transport conversions of WW2-era bombers,
- Note A11 - includes aerial mapping, natural resources search etc.
- Note A12 - specially-fitted aircraft (not including 'typical' military MRA aircraft), includes fisheries patrol and NBC reconnaissance,
- Note A13 - primarily intended for light aircraft for aerobatic displays (like Pitts Special or Zlin 50), but also includes military aircraft of display teams (like Red Arrows, Blue Angels etc.);
- Note A14 - "Pioneer Flight" here denotes post-1918 trans-oceanic flights, record-breaking flights (except for military-specific or purpose-built research aircraft like US X-series)
- Note A15 - includes specialized scout helicopters (like OH-58D Kiowa Warrior)

Dear Mates, with great (you don't even imagine how great) relief I want to announce that

IT... IS... DONE.

About time, I was really getting sick of it. :P

Btw. there are some sheets with missiles, bombs, etc. made various artists (akin to SB-scale parts sheets) - for lack of better option they are under "United Nations". Any better suggestions welcome.

Total of 6983 files (there were more initially, closer to 7,5k, but I consolidated many of them).
Of these 4298 are of air vehicles (3722 real-life and 576 never-were), 2306 of land vehicles (2229 real-life and 77 never-were), 266 of organizational charts (all real-life) and 113 of ships (108 real-life and 5 never-were).
You guys owe me one. :P

Shouldn't parts and part sheets go on the wiki?
Great work!
