      A little bit error is these list on
      Spitfire mixed sometimes (begin) soviet new Lagg-3 airplane,
      because spitfire gives many (rear body) idea and effect to soviet designers.

      Another is Lightning. No any planes here, Finnish-Soviet line
      These planes it's maybe soviet one own models, or FW-189 captured plane.


Any explosive ammunition or empty cores, you can put in this.
