B-type roundel, introduced in 1939. It is initially used on the upper surfaces and on the sides of the fuselage, the under surfaces roudels and the fin flash being deleted. Following identification problems, the A roundel is soon reintroduced. In order to ease the recognition on the units fighting with the French, a red-white-blue flag is painted on the rudder.
The B roundel is also used on the upper surfaces and on the fuselage of high altitude aircraft (fighters or recce), together with a A or C type fin flash.
