image cleanup[edit]

Heya FOX, I saw your edit to 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) and I was wondering if you do requests for converting images to svg format.. because I know of a few military emblems I've been wondering about. Anywho, Cheers! — -dainomite   03:22, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Yeah I'm just starting to dive into it a little bit, so go ahead and send over you've got. - I'll see what I can do FOX 52 (talk) 04:08, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Oh awesome! I wish I knew how to do it, I'm not sure what makes things easier or more difficult for converting the images. These have always been on my "to-do" list for if I ever figured it out though.
Thanks a ton, I appreciate it! No rush of course. If there's anything I can help you out with please don't hesitate to ask. Regards, — -dainomite   04:35, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Found the logo in far better resolution on the official Facebook page of the Tallinn Airport

Also, the neck of the current svg-version is obviously too long. Could you please remake the logo using the given image above? Anyway, thanks for the work. (talk) 06:26, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

It looks like the Jack Bauer font from 24. ;) I say it looks just as nice without it, and most emblems don't have text.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 07:44, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Italian HH-3F phase out[edit]

Sorry for that. I now added sources from ITAF supporting that HH-3Fs have been retired from Italian service. Hoping it will be ok now. Regards. --EH101 (talk) 13:56, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Flying ace[edit]

No objection to the Rickenbacker picture in itself - just that if every illustration in a long article had to be "the most notable" we'd replace every picture in the WWI section of the article with one of Richthofen - and make sure that each picture was one of his most famous portrait at that! A bit of variety, and the odd unexpected (and for that very reason more interesting) picture never hurts. Still, it's also nice to "cycle" illustrations a bit - so I won't argue or edit war over it. Hang in there. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 22:25, 9 October 2014 (UTC)


Hey mate, I saw your edit at I-League and honestly I am still very confused? I just simply just want to update the logo to include the sponsorship, I've never had a problem before. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 05:17, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

not a problem this was a graphics lab request from Perumalism, I didn't see the point in taking out the vectored, for a more grainier logo. - cheers FOX 52 (talk) 06:54, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I guess that makes sense. I simply just copied from the official All India Football Federation page. Cheers. --ArsenalFan700 (talk) 12:42, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Bell 222[edit]

Hi, I changed the position of the File:Bell 222 as the image covers the specification table, at least on my monitor. Chesipiero (talk) 16:39, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

you managed to place it under the "See also" section, which should remain clear of images - the orthographical image is better suited for the "Specifications" section cheers FOX 52 (talk) 17:17, 12 March 2015 (UTC)


Gday - re my revert on the RAAF article. My edit summary doesn't make sense I realise, sorry I misunderstood your edit. I still don't agree with your reversion of IP 101's edit but I now understand your second edit summary "remove speculative wording per WP:CBALL". Apologies. I'll explain myself re the revert on the talk page ASAP. Anotherclown (talk) 14:07, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

My graphics lab request[edit]

Could we leave it open for now? I actually have a bunch more that need done if you'd be willing or another volunteer is available. Abyssal (talk) 04:15, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

@Abyssal: It would be best to close this one, as it may lead to confusion on whether it's filled or not - And when your ready throw in a new request (from experience, it usually ends up taking longer for editor(s) to add new parts to a current request) - Cheers

Military aircraft insignia[edit]

Hi Fox, may I please ask why have you reverted my edition at Military aircraft insignia if it's properly sourced (and common knowledge)? Just in case, here you have it in English too, quoting the original source: Best regards, --MaeseLeon (talk) 04:41, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

@MaeseLeon: We've seen this report before but there nothing to support its reliability as true source. Furthermore there are plenty of images from 2015, that contradict this claim from 2013. - [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] - Cheers FOX 52 (talk) 05:16, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Yes, they haven't still repainted all of them. Oh well, i guess we'll have to wait until they do to write down here what is known right now in Russia and in every air force in the world, which is exactly as reported in those articles, not to enter an edition war. I actually don't mind, honestly. Have a nice day. MaeseLeon (talk) 05:28, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for archiving Graphics Lab[edit]

"Double V campaign" emblem[edit]

@Mitchumch: Unfortunately your request is quite intricate, and at this point you'll have to wait for an editor to check the archives, and see if it gets pickup up then. - Apologies FOX 52 (talk) 19:27, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

SVG help[edit]

FOX 52, I know you do a lot of SVG work and I need your help! I'm in the learning phases and I'm having issues with File:FHSU Tigers logo.svg. I need to add a white background behind the actual tiger itself (much like the one at I have Inkscape, and I can't seem to figure this out. If you would be willing to guide me through it, I'd appreciate it! If I can't seem to get it, would you mind doing it? Thanks, 🎓 Corkythehornetfan 🎓 06:50, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

@Corkythehornetfan: - You'll need to trace the area you want in white (white fill only, no stroke), and then lower that layer to the bottom. Here a inkscape tutorial on layers that should help. Any problems drop me line - Cheers FOX 52 (talk) 17:42, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
FOX 52: Thanks for the link! For right now, if you don't mind, would you fix this? I'll practice with it, but right now I'd prefer an expert fix this file... Also, the code might need cleaned up, too... not sure why gradient is in there when there isn't any. Lol Thanks, Corkythehornetfan 🎓 05:30, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
 Done- @Corkythehornetfan: FOX 52 (talk) 05:59, 15 June 2016 (UTC)


Yes you're right they do change due to accidents and running into maintaince issues which happened to only one of the Aircrafts which was an F18D and thats why they have 39 in service rather than 40, no other plane had any accidents or issues that we know about or got reported. and dont rely only on one source sometimes it can be mistakes :) i'll gather further information and sources - for now have a wonderful day mate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by IHardned (talkcontribs) 06:30, 2 March 2017 (UTC)


You got reliable sources. So, stop revert page Serbian Air Force without any proof or reliable sources. Thanks! (Knightserbia (talk) 20:31, 9 March 2017 (UTC))

@Knightserbia: having reliable sources is not the problem, it's promoting items that have yet to come. Wikipedia is not here to discuss what's on the horizon per WP:NOTNEWS and WP:CBALL. Further please refrain from placing images in these tables per WP:WHENTABLE. Thank you FOX 52 (talk) 05:21, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Romanian Air Force[edit]

Cristi1457 (talk) 06:29, 3 May 2017 (UTC)FOX 52 As a Romanian, following the press releases of the National Defense Ministry of Romania and the ROAF official website, I can provide the correct information. Today, the Romanian Air Force page is incomplete, thanks to your hard work to destroy the work of others.

I second this. Just because certain items failed to appear on "World Air Forces 2017" doesn't mean that they don't exist. I would understand if the sources would be completely outdated but that's not the case. The source which I have added regarding the F-16's (regarding the delivery of the last 3 of the 9 total aircraft currently in use more precisely) was dated "December 19, 2016" ( Some of the other sources (not necessarily added by me) was the air force's own website which makes me ask how is "World Air Forces 2017" more reliable than the organization actually using those items. Regarding your previous edits to the user above your edits stated "restore sourced content" but he did add the sources. I don't see how , as previous references were dated 2015-2016 (one of which was December 2016) , the lack of new sources (even on a list presumably holding a list of items) justifies the deletion of recently sourced items as long as there's no news of them ever disappearing ,being phased out or similar.
P.S. Ironically enough , the ZSU-57-2 , a system which was replaced by the Gepard (which has removed from the list) and phased out in the 1990's is still on the list. Romdwolf (talk) 02:08, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
And you may add any pertinent information as long it is verified by a reliable source. If not I may remove it per WP:PROVEIT - FOX 52 (talk) 02:22, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

IAF table according to types[edit]

I'm sorry FOX but that edit gives an erroneous impression as to IAF strengths and uses by type. Only flight international appears to be under the delusion that the F15 B/D and the F16D are not in combat roles. The F15 B/D are used as supplimentary F15I's in the strike role, effectively giving the IAF 2 F-15I squadrons. Also note the recent aquisition of 11 F-15B/D from the U.S.A.F. Also the Israelis have just purchased 30 the new 'Lavi' advanced trainers so they are not short of ultra modern training platforms. See this excellent article for added info on this. Simon. Irondome (talk) 21:25, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

@Irondome: Simon the note section is there for that very purpose and the use of dual citation(s) (WP:CITEKILL) is only make more of a mess for the reader. As per the guideline WP:WHENTABLE - avoid cramming detailed information into table entrie(s), the reader should be able to click a Wikilink to see detailed article corresponding concise table entry - I will try to retain the pertinent information but that table needs to be streamline. Cheers FOX 52 (talk) 23:13, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
FOX, that would be fine. My only problem was the source which claimed an unfeasably high number of operational aircraft earmarked as trainers. The two other sources on the existing table flatly contradict this. I would suggest your new table with the majority source consensus as to their roles. Did you read the link I gave by the way? Interesting stuff and completely unmentioned on WP. It looks a well researched WP:RS. It would make an interesting article, Israeli F-15 B/D Modifications. Cheers Simon. Irondome (talk). We would need more sources though. 23:31, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
I'll use the ISS source - FOX 52 (talk) 02:05, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
By using ISS you claim that IAF has 224 F-16C/D/I. But how many of them are F-16C single-seaters, F-16D two-seater, and unique F-16I's? The reader should be able to click a Wikilink to see detailed article corresponding concise table entry, but there is no article other than this one to tell the reader IAF has 98 F-16I's, 78 F-16C's, and 49 F-16D's. And this is just one example. Your 'streamlining' makes the entire table useless for me. Flayer (talk) 17:03, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
@Flayer: The problem with presenting two sources is you've made some assumptions (ei: FG has 67 F-15A/C/I’s in inventory, and then you’re taking IISS numbers which states there are 33 F-15A/C & 25 I’s and then splitting the difference). It implies that FG has it at 42 F-15A/C’s and 25 I’s, which is misleading since it cannot be confirmed as they have grouped all the variants together - And remember the table should be for all readers, so it would not be useless to them - Thoughts @BilCat: @Irondome: - FOX 52 (talk) 23:54, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
25 F-15I's and 42 F-15A/C’s can be easily confirmed by FG. Flayer (talk) 07:16, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
Then why didn't you use that source in the first place? FOX 52 (talk) 07:29, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
I think it was accidently overridden by the FG pdf. Flayer (talk) 12:01, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Just curious[edit]

Hi FOX, just curious as to why you decided to add an up-to-date aircraft inventory table to Indian Air Force, rather than add it to List of active Indian military aircraft? BTW, you have done a really excellent job on updating all the air force articles inventories!! Antiochus the Great (talk) 10:19, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

@Antiochus the Great: - I think it's good to have the basic table as opposed to the List of active Indian military aircraft which seems to carry more information and detailed notes. (And thank you, I try to keep'em simple and clean) - FOX 52 (talk) 15:16, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Thank you! (2017)[edit]

Samoa coat of arms[edit]

Hello Fox - I realized I forgot to mention that the Samoa coat of arms you made,is of the Kingdom of Samoa 1873 - 1900. I guess you need that information when adding the coa to the Samoa-page. Sorry for inconvenience JanJC (talk) 06:45, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star[edit]

Fox, I'm trying hard not to make an issue of every infobox image change you've been making. However, using a T-33 image in the infobox of the F-80 article isn't a good idea. If the rightly-blocked User:Hoggardhigh hadn't intervened, I'd have reverted it myself if I had realized it was a T-33. I don't think the previous image is so bad that we have to have an image of another, albeit very closely related type. Once the Hog is prevented from editing the article, I'll probably change it back, unless I can find a better image. Most of the good in-flight images are black-and-white, and I'd prefer a color one, if available. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 17:20, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Yeah I realized that's not a P-80 image so no worries - FOX 52 (talk) 17:37, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I'll see if I can get the page protected, and then swap it again. - BilCat (talk) 17:41, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

File:Shamash-sun-symbol (3 rays).svg[edit]

Hi FOX 52, thank you for your work on the file.

Could you do some more corrections please? If you look at the original File:Tablet of Shamash relief.jpg here, you can noticed some more details within the star. The circle in the middle consists of two circles, and the four arms of the star also have lines in them that run along the length. Could you add those details please? Thank you very much. Gryffindor (talk) 09:08, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Changes to image[edit]

Hi FOX 52. A few weeks ago you touched up the infobox image at Sukhoi Su-35. Do you think you could do the same thing to File:Sukhoi Su-35 MAKS'2011 Avdeev.jpg? The reason is because this particular image has the aircraft facing towards the left (towards the text). Regards, --Sp33dyphil (talk) 02:57, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

 Done @Sp33dyphil: Ok I cropped it, BTW that's a great photo - I think this one would be ideal for the infobox as well - FOX 52 (talk) 04:22, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for that. I'll make sure to replace the pic. Regards, --Sp33dyphil (talk) 05:37, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

There's a small mistake in this file I've initially missed: while the main body of Russia is colored green, its small exclave of Kaliningrad Oblast is not. Could you please change its color to that of the remainder of the country? Thanks!--R8R (talk) 17:31, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

 Done- FOX 52 (talk) 21:52, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you!--R8R (talk) 05:35, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

F-104 images[edit]

Greetings, FOX 52, I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to give you an update regarding our earlier conversation about the F-104 Starfighter—I've not had any luck obtaining any images from Lockheed, but I am still trying. In the meantime I did locate a number of images already out on Wikimedia Commons, and I was wondering if you had any thoughts on them. I've put a gallery out on Talk:Lockheed F-104 Starfighter; I didn't know if you were watching that page so I thought I would ping you here. I would very much like to hear what you think. :) None of them are perfect but they have potential. I tried out the first image in my sandbox and it's not bad; do you think you could play around with it (or one of the others if you think it is better) and do your magic?

Yeah I'll have a look - FOX 52 (talk) 04:38, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Lebanese Air Force[edit]

Dear friend, I would like to stress on the point that all the hawker hunters of the Lebanese Air Force are out of service. And if you have references stating otherwise please state them if not, please undo the modification made on the page. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rabih Maatouk (talkcontribs) 21:35, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

@Rabih Maatouk: Yeah it's sourced right here - click and scroll down to the Lebanese Air Force section - FOX 52 (talk) 02:14, 22 November 2017 (UTC)


Hey, could you take a look at Mikoyan MiG-41. There is a user who keeps adding the Russian Air Force as a user without a source, despite that violating Wikipedia:CRYSTALBALL and Wikipedia:AIRCRAFT-OPERATORS (especially since the Russian Air Force hasn't signed for the aircraft). Thanks!Garuda28 (talk) 02:01, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

Yeah I'll have a look - FOX 52 (talk) 03:04, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I appreciate it. I'm going to revert tomorrow so that I don't break the 3RR. Do you believe that his edits warrants this action or should it be left as is?Garuda28 (talk) 03:25, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
Nah, eventually he'll get the idea - FOX 52 (talk) 03:32, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

RNLAF aircraft inventory[edit]

Dear FOX52, Please, do not change the aircraft inventory table of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. The information you provide is based on a incorrect source (Worldairforces). Please visit the official website of the RNLAF: As you can see there, the RNLAF DOES NOT HAVE KC-10's, but KDC-10's. These are former commercial DC-10's which are converted to a tanker aircraft. Moreover, the RNLAF DOES NOT HAVE a Learjet 36, but a Gulfstream IV which is used for VIP transport. Furthermore, the RNLAF has 4 C-130's (not three) and has 20 NH-90 helicopters INSTEAD OF 17. EVERYONE IS TRYING TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR SOURCE IS INCORRECT, BUT YOU DO NOT CARE. Please use official and reliable sources and do not vandalize the table. Kind regards from Holland. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:17, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Please familiarize yourself the inner workings of Wikipedia, before making such drastic change(s) to the Royal Netherlands Air Force page. EI: avoid cramming detailed information into table entrie(s), the reader should be able to click a Wikilink to see detailed article corresponding concise table entry per WP:WHENTABLE -Thank you FOX 52 (talk) 17:06, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
The main goal of Wikipedia is providing free and correct information to the public, isn't it? So, let we first give the right information about the RNLAF. After that, we can discuss about the lay-out of tables. You also could help by making the right table with the correct data. Thanks... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:46, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
No, this is an encyclopedia not a news site, we don't produce content on future events that may or may not happen - FOX 52 (talk) 16:40, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Indian Military Aircraft[edit]

Hi. I noticed you removed lot of redundant information from List of active Indian military aircraft. Thanks for that. Could you also please check Indian Naval Air Arm and List of equipment of the Indian Army#Aircraft? Thanks. Sarvatra (talk) 01:00, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Yeah I'll have a look FOX 52 (talk) 01:03, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Aircraft lists by country can be a pain in the ass. On List of active Indian military aircraft I had serious issues back in the day trying to add the EL/W-2090 to the Beriev A-50. Now I see the original Russia/Israel origin has been altered. Now I will have to re-insert it with sources. Without the Israeli mention in national origin it is wildly incorrect. Without the EL/W-2090 it is just a big Russian cargo plane. (Sigh) Enjoy the brew!

Russian low visibility roundel[edit]

Fox52, the roundel appears to be on the PAK FA. I realize that it’s not IOC yet, but is in service as a test aircraft. You think that would suffice for adding the roundel to Russian Air Force pages? Also not sure if it’s low vis or just an alternate one. Garuda28 (talk) 04:10, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

@Garuda28: The problem is there are these images here and here, which are declared "Russian Air Force" while this one is still titled "Sukhoi Design Bureau" - So with this uncertainty we should wait to verify it isn't just Sukhoi's fancy paint job - FOX 52 (talk) 06:19, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Air Force main image name[edit]

Just wanted to let you know I found the official source that describes it as the emblem ( We can still go to talk if you disagree. 00:52, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Bangladesh Air Force[edit]

In this edit you undid an edit to Bangladesh Air Force by Tribalact and part of an edit of mine.

I concur with your restoration of the Sukhoi Su-30 table row that Tribalact removed. Flightglobal's World Air Forces 2018 shows 8 on order, and that should be a sufficient reference. We should not, however, cite and on top of that. For one thing, it's unnecessary WP:CITEKILL, but more importantly, they have none of the characteristics of reliable sources. Based on their edit summary, I think that's what confused Tribalact into removing the row.

Can you elaborate on why you reverted my cleanup of the citation to Air Forces Monthly? It is a magazine, not an academic journal. Do you object to the name being linked? Page number should be in its own field, not mixed in with the name of the magazine. And since no URL was ever specified, it's an error to fill in access-date. --Worldbruce (talk) 01:59, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

@Worldbruce: - Sorry about that, purely unintentional I have a copy of this page on my computer just to combat the consistent vandalism – Anyways fix it – And thanks for the magazine vs Journal format I was using the wrong one cheers - FOX 52 (talk) 02:16, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
