Not French markings.

Without colours it is hard to identify the tail flag...

Similar looking RAF/SAAF P-36 variant

French had their tail painted with Tricolore, the small flag at this position smells like Commonwealth use

just focus on the tail flag, french had a completely different flag and they marked the complete rear rudder with it
See also this RAF Mohawk in India with different flag in same position https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File ... 2_1943.jpg

I've searched for that roundel, in every country where it was in service, and couldn't find anything.

I also have searched all insignia and have come up negative. The only thing I can come up with is an early or poorly done version of the South East Asian version of the British roundel with the red center replaced. This would fit with the employment of H 75s with the Indian Air Force. I realize the tail flag and roundel are not perfect but the letter of the regulation and the implementation of markings by forward units does not always conform.

Repainted by the Germans for propaganda shots/films like this Spitfire from http://www.vintagewings.ca/VintageNews/ ... nd-Up.aspx

which also has a type B fuselage roundel, fin flash colours in wrong order and similar phony lettering scheme,

as probably does the 2nd ex-French Hawk 75 too in this pic's background:

Those air inlets were used in E-2, E-3/ Trop versions.

Yes, but the E versions had a air intake in the nose (red circle) that does not appear in the plane of my image....

It a C-version configured for glider-towing duties. You can see parts of the equipment below the fuselage as well as one of the rear-view mirrors in front of the cockpit on the left side (aerodynamic covered). And if you look more closely, you will notice that parts of the tail fairing have been remove to make place for the towing gear. Best Frank

While the aircraft itself is obvious, this is the first time I've seen photos of an Me 323 with two bladed props on the engines. Was this some sort of one-off or a standard variant?
