Aircraft were usually referred with manufacturer's name and not simply called with their assigned name unless it was mentioned already in the conversation.

For example, you can't search for the Sopwith Camel on Danbooru, because it's tagged as camel_(airplane), despite the fact that the plane is usually referred with manufacturer's name.

Also, I'd like to make an alias of Martlet, since it's literally the same plane as F4F with no differences other than its markings.

Edit: I think we should rename other airliner tags with manufacturer, since I don't think people will search "747" over "Boeing 747" when they searched for an airplane.

Edit 2: I just found that there's a character from an obscure VN called Panavia Tornado, I think the tag for her should be renamed to avoid confusion with the aircraft.

Edit 3: There is two aircraft named "Tornado", one made by Hawker (tornado (hawker)) and the other by Panavia (tornado_(airplane)), so I think it's better to list the manufacturer's name before the aircraft name.


Planes that already have a numerical designation like f4f_wildcat and a6m_zero and not just the nickname by itself are already perfectly descriptive imo (and the manufacturer is already indicated via the last letter of the designation). But a bunch of the Japanese planes are lacking in anything other than the 3-character designation, so I feel they really ought to have a name attached so they don't just look like random letters. But then the Japanese didn't give nicknames to all of their planes so while we already have d4y_suisei and b6n_tenzan, we'd end up having to mix in American names for the D3A and B5N, etc.

I can't believe that the Sopwith Camel wasn't tagged as such until now though, I thought everyone called it that because of Snoopy if nothing else.

create implication seafire_(airplane) -> supermarine_spitfire
rename seafire_(airplane) -> supermarine_seafire
rename barracuda_(airplane) -> fairey_barracuda
rename gannet_(airplane) -> fairey_gannet
rename typhoon_(airplane) -> hawker_typhoon
rename tempest_(airplane) -> hawker_tempest
rename sea_fury_(airplane) -> hawker_sea_fury
create alias s-25_sunderland -> short_sunderland
rename rafale -> dassault_rafale

Well, I found a plane tag that didn't change the name into current standard yet. Also, since Seafire is a variant of Spitfire, I think it should be implied to the main tag.
