Maybe a bit more research?

I know this is a very small point, and probably not important to anyone, but I have an uncle who flies the Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 out of RAF Coningsby, and I asked him about this.

In the Dunkirk rescue operation, there is a point where the RAF makes a sortie, together with the announcement "This is Colonel **************** of the RAF ..." A very little research would show that the RAF has never had the rank of 'Colonel' since the Royal Flying Corps of the 1914-1918 war (the closest might have been Lieutenant-Colonel = RAF Wing Commander).

The ranks of the RAF are (and would have been the same during WW2) -

Officer Cadet

Pilot Officer

Flying Officer

Flight Lieutenant

Squadron Leader

Wing Commander

Group Captain

Air Commodore

Air Vice-Marshal

Air Marshal

Air Chief Marshal

and the top job -

Marshal of the Royal Air Force

Just something for the developers to think about. :Smile_Default:

This is the sort of historical accuracy WG SHOULD be focusing more on. The stuff that does not affect gameplay in the slightest.

Why would he even say he is the RAF? Isn't that self-explanatory?

That's like every post on this forum beginning with 'I play WoWs'.

This radio transmission obviously originates from German agents who are on the call channel. 

Ignore it.
