The now long dead FAQ had a *big* section on this, including JT's views,
anyone still have a copy? I've got one at home.

Well I use  'C.B.K' which is russian for 'Solar Naval Ship' for the ESU
(which is written EEC in russian)     c.f NAC and their CNS

Painting :
	      Primary	   Secondary		    Logo
  ESU	       red	    yellow/black	     yellow star (E*C)
  NAC	       white	    blue/black		 like the S.T. ^ (N^C)
  PAU	       yellow	    green/red		     (non typeable!)
  IF	       green	     white	      3 swords and islamic
  RH	    dark blue	    red/white		     2 headed eagle
  NSL	       black	    red/gold			WW1 +
  FSE	       grey				     (non typeable)
  UN	       orange	    white

  All the ESU have an initial on them (which is the ship type) and no.
it looks as if they are part of a bigger fleet) and fleet logo.
  The initial is in the russian scrip!

My ESU frigates are in red & black tiger stripe that just suits the mini
a T !! well IMO ! ;-)
