C-type roundel. In order to lessen the conspicuousness of the national insignias, the width of the white stripe, almost equal to the other in the A type, is reduced on the C type, introduced from may 1942. The standard application of this scheme consists in the B type on the upper surfaces, the C type on the under surfaces, the C1 on the fuselage sides, and the C-type fin flash on the tail. It is sported in a bigger size on the upper surfaces at the end of the war, until 1947, when the D-type roundel was introduced.
