Yellow ID marking introduced in early March 1945 on Luftflotte 4 two-engine warplanes

I have a question regarding the Yellow ID marking introduced in early March 1945 on Luftflotte 4 warplanes I hope forum members will be able to answer.

Was the prescribed 50-cm wide yellow ring applied on the nose, or the engine cowlings of two-engine heavy fighter/ground attack aircraft (like Me 210/410, or Hs 129)? If the latter, was it applied in the middle of the engine cowling, or in front, close to the spinner?

Thanks, in advance.

Yes, of course !


You have for exemple, a Fw-189 captured at Salzburg and coded 5h+RK from NAG16.
An art profil shows it with the spinner and the engine cover painted in yellow.


The Hs-129 WNr: 141862 "White 1" from 14.(Pz.)/SG9, wercked at Ceske Budejovice and with the yellow band close to the spinner.



The Ju-188 D WNr: 0986 Code +IL ( Red letter I ) Captured at Linz and with the yellow band close to the spinner.


I hope I give you a good help.


Best regards,
Lumabe.

Thank you, Lumabe, for the details.
Was the mentioned Hs 129's photo published somewhere? I would like to take a look at the yellow ring on the engine cowling. Many thanks!
