Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Adds icons to display certain capabilities of the aircraft

Aircraft status

Instead of a custom "status" text, you can use the aircraft rating system. The overall status is auto-calculated and will be displayed. If you use the aircraft rating system, remove the |status = line.

See Aircraft rating system for instructions on how to rate your aircraft.

Ready icons

Several icons are available to indicate certain capabilities of the aircraft. You can add up to five icons to one aircraft. Separate them with slashes. Using airrefuel, bombable, dualcontrol, rembrandt, spacetrip will add the page to the categories Air refueling ready, Bombable aircraft, Dual control aircraft, Rembrandt aircraft and Aerospace respectively.

Caution  You can only add 4 ready icons. This will be changed in the future
