      View File Su-27 Fictional Skins: US Navy Volume III - Adversaries
      This is a collection of 13 skins of the Su-27 Flanker in US Navy and Marine Corps Adversary paint schemes. Commands represented are:
      VFC-12 Fighting Omars VFC-13 Saints VMFT-401 Snipers Naval Strike Air Warfare Center (NSAWC, parent command of TOPGUN)

       

      The pack includes various combinations of camouflage and splinter patterns in air superiority blue, desert, arctic, woodland and one Su-34 fullback paint scheme based on a 2016 VFC-12 endeavor.
       
      Most markings have been westernized, and the pilots have been given USN/USMC flightsuits with Naval Aviator wings and squadron patches. The helmet remains Russian made.
       
      Be sure to download Volumes I and II:
      Volume I
      Volume II
       
       
       
      For Compact Installations - A Note About Autoexec.cfg:
       
      Rather than copying texture files to their respective livery folders, I prefer to use a series of common texture folders along with unique filenames. This allows a single instance of many of my common textures, and keeps the hard drive footprint to a minimum (especially nice if you run a SSD for your system drive).
       
      The installer will add a series of folders to the DCS Texture path; if you do not have these folders created, then it is no problem. The autoexec.cfg included will automatically point to the Texture folder in your Saved Games\DCS folder, and regardless of whether you run the Open Alpha, Open Beta, or Release version of DCS, the path will always point to your Saved Games\DCS\Texture folder. Again, this saves space on your hard drive.
       
      If you use your own Autoexec.cfg, then when prompted to overwrite you can click "no". This will create a file called autoexec.new, and you can manually make the updates as you like. Just don't modify the top line with the file date; this is used by the installer for version control. However, feel free to include it in your existing autoexec.cfg, so you don't get prompted to overwrite until there's another update to the autoexec.cfg.
       
      If you inadvertently overwrite your autoexec.cfg, it is actually backed up as autoexec.old. Just open it and copy the appropriate information to the new file.
       
      For Traditional Installations:
       
      If there is an issue with textures not displaying, it is likely a problem with the installer. Please let me know what textures are missing so that I can troubleshoot the issue.
       
       
       
      If you have any squadron requests, please PM me. If possible, provide top and profile views of the aircraft, preferably line art (much easier to extract color), and for CAG/CO birds, a close up of the tail fin is greatly appreciated.
       
      You are free to use any of these skins in other projects as long as proper credit is provided in the readme file.

      View File US Navy Attack Squadron 97 (VA-97) "Warhawks" Skin Pack
      VA-97 was commissioned in 1967 and flew the A-7 Corsair. In 1968, the squadron deployed to Vietnam as part of Carrier Air Wing 14 (CVW-14) embarked on the USS Constellation. VA-97 conducted a second combat deployment with CVW-14 in 1969, where they flew over 2500 sorties. VA-97 conducted two more Vietnam combat deployments in 1971 and 1972. The Warhawks returned to Vietnam for a fifth time in 1975 in support of Operation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of Saigon. In early 1980, VA-27 provided air cover for Operation Eagle Claw, the failed attempt at rescuing the American hostages in Iran.
      In January 1991, the Warhawks transitioned to the F/A-18 and were redesignated Strike Fighter Squadron 97 (VFA-97). Today the Warhawks fly the F/A-18E Super Hornet out of NAS Lemoore, CA, and they are slated to be the first fleet squadron to transition to the F-35.
      This is a fictional skin pack of Su-25Ts painted like the A-7E Corsair II in accordance with MIL-STD-2161A(AS) with VA-97 markings circa 1986. There are four different skins with unique Modexes (side numbers) and historically correct BuNos (serial numbers). This allows you to create packages of unique aircraft. Each skin has a "normal" version and a weathered version. Weathered skins have a bleached effect as if the aircraft were heavily exposed to the sun for months on end. Normal skins include pilots with green flightsuits, while weathered skins include pilots with desert flightsuits.
      Most markings have been westernized, and the pilots have been given US style flightsuits with US markings. The helmet remains Russian made (but with a black oxygen mask).
       
      Note: this skin pack uses an EXE installer that creates common texture folders and an autoexec.cfg (if you already have one, you can make manual changes). I would like your feedback on this system; if it works I intend to apply it to my other skin packs.

      View File US Navy Attack Squadron 46 (VA-46) "Clansmen" Skin Pack
      VA-46 was commissioned in 1955 and initially flew the F9F-5 Panther before transitioning to the F9F-8 Cougar the following year. In this timeframe, VA-46 deployed to the Meditteranean, where they acted in support of the Suez Crisis.1948. In 1958, VA-72 transitioned to the A-4 Skyhawk, with which it deployed to Vietnam in 1967 on the USS Forrestal. VA-46 was present when the infamous fire on the Forrestal killed 134 sailors and injured 62 more, and the heroic efforts of the Clansmen personnel helped to get the fire under control.
       
      In 1968, VA-46 transitioned to the A-7 Corsair II, which it flew until the squadron's decommissioning. In 1986, VA-46 conducted offensive strikes in Libya as part of Operation: El Dorado Canyon. In 1990-1991, VA-46 participated in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm as part of Carrier Air Wing 1 (CVW-1) embarked on the USS John F Kennedy. Alongside VA-72, VA-46 conducted both the first strike against targets in Baghdad and the last naval air strike of the war. VA-46 was decommissioned on June 30, 1991, making it the last US Navy squadron to fly the A-7 Corsair II.
       
      This is a fictional skin pack of Su-25Ts painted like the A-7E Corsair II in accordance with MIL-STD-2161A(AS) with VA-72 markings circa 1991. There are four different skins with unique Modexes (side numbers) and historically correct BuNos (serial numbers). VA-46 was one of two A-7 squadrons on in CVW-1 during Desert Storm, the other A-7 squadron being VA-72. This allows you to create packages of unique aircraft, including two squadrons from the same air wing. Each skin has a "normal" version and a weathered version. Weathered skins have a bleached effect as if the aircraft were heavily exposed to the sun for months on end. Normal skins include pilots with green flightsuits, while weathered skins include pilots with desert flightsuits.

      View File US Navy Attack Squadron 72 (VA-72) "Blue Hawks" Skin Pack
      VA-72 was commissioned in 1945 as Bomber Fighter Squadron 18 (VBF-18) and flew the F6F Hellcat. In 1948, the squadron was redesignated Attack Squadron 72 (VA-72), where it flew the F8F Bearcat for until 1950, when it transitioned to the F9F Panther. In 1956, VA-72 transitioned to the A-4 Skyhawk, and then in 1970 to the A-7 Corsair II, which it flew until the squadron's decommissioning in 1991.
      During its 41 years, the Blue Hawks participated in many conflicts. In 1965 while flying the A-4E in Vietnam, VA-72 led the first successful strike against a SA-2 site. VA-72 also participated in the Gulf of Sidra Freedom of Navigation exercises (during the timeframe USN F-14s shot down two Libyan MiG-23s), and later participated as SEAD in Operation: El Dorado Canyon, the strike on Libyan targets in response to the bombing of a Berlin Discotheque.
       
      In 1990 and 1991, VA-72 participated in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, including the first strike against targets in Baghdad. To put a bow on a distinguished history, VA-72 participated in the last naval air strike of the war, a war in which they flew 362 sorties without losing any aircraft or aviators.
      This is a fictional skin pack of Su-25Ts painted like the A-7E Corsair II in accordance with MIL-STD-2161A(AS) with VA-72 markings circa 1991. Since VA-72 were pioneers and specialists in SEAD, it is fitting that their markings adorn the Su-25T. There are five different skins with unique Modexes (side numbers) and historically correct BuNos (serial numbers), including two hi-color birds (1 CAG, 1 CO). This allows you to create packages of unique aircraft. Each skin has a "normal" version and a weathered version. Weathered skins have a bleached effect as if the aircraft were heavily exposed to the sun for months on end. Normal skins include pilots with green flightsuits, while weathered skins include pilots with desert flightsuits.
      Most markings have been westernized, and the pilots have been given US style flightsuits with US markings. The helmet remains Russian made (but with a black oxygen mask).
       
      Note: this skin pack uses an EXE installer that creates common texture folders and an autoexec.cfg (if you already have one, you can make manual changes). I would like your feedback on this system; if it works I intend to apply it to my other skin packs.
