UH-1 Medal of Honor Skin Pack


This is a collection of six skins representing Five units in the Vietnam War. Each skin represents an airframe on which one of the crewmembers was awarded the Medal of Honor.

 

The skins included are:

  • US Army 82nd Medical Detachment (Air Ambulance)
  • US Army 2/17th Cavalry, 101st Airborne Division
  • US Army 173rd Assault Helicopter Company, 1st Aviation Regiment
  • US Army 229th Aviation Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (#775)
  • US Army 229th Aviation Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (#888)
  • USMC Marine Observation Squadron Six (VMO-6)

I have added the names and ranks (at the time) of the pilots and co-pilots of these airframes at the time of the action. While I have attempted to be as accurate as these gentlemen deserve, I may have made some incorrect assumptions (this is especially true about the co-pilots, who are not as easily found in the public record). Likewise, I was unable to accurately represent GySgt Leroy Poulson and LCpl John Phelps of VMO-6, as the door gunner textures do not support it. If you see any inaccuracies, please let me know so that I may correct them.

 

All reference imagery and much of the research was taken from

The Airframes and the Medal of Honor Recipients:

 

82nd Medical Detachment (Air Ambulance)

CW3 Michael Novosel - October 2, 1969

 

CW3 Michael Novosel was pilot-in-command of of a UH-1H med evac Huey with the 82nd Medical Detachment in 1969. On October 2, he went to the assistance of a group of wounded South Vietnamese soldiers that were pinned down by an enemy force concealed in a series of bunkers. Flying without any gunship cover, he made repeated runs against heavy enemy fire to pick up the wounded. Near the end of the action, he spotted a wounded ARVN soldier near an enemy bunker. He maneuvered the ship near the wounded man and a crewman reached down to grab and lift the wounded soldier into the aircraft. During the maneuver the aircraft was hit by enemy fire and CW3 Novosel was wounded. In all, Michael Novosel and his crew made 15 extractions in the face of enemy fire, saving 29 wounded South Vietnamese soldiers. He was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1971.

 

 

 

2/17th Cavalry, 101st Airborne Division

Sp4 Joseph G. LaPointe - June 2, 1969

 

Sp4 Joseph "Guy" LaPointe was a medic with Headquarters Troop, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry. On June 2, 1969, he was just one day from going on leave to meet his wife and new son. However, SP4 LaPointe volunteered for a mission that day because his replacement was a new guy without any field experience. The patrol landed on the top of Hill 376, near the famous "Hamburger Hill" battle site. Sweeping away from the hilltop LZ, the point man walked into a fire zone from concealed enemy bunkers. Two more men were quickly wounded and "Doc" LaPointe moved forward to aid his wounded buddies. He put himself between the enemy bunkers and the wounded, and began working on the wounded. He was soon hit by enemy fire, but ignoring his own wounds he continued to shield his buddies while tending their wounds. He was hit by a second burst of fire and knocked away from his friends. He crawled back to the wounded again and once more shielded them from enemy fire while resuming his aid. This time an enemy grenade landed among the group, mortally wounding them all, including Doc LaPointe. He was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously on December 16, 1971.

 

 

 

173rd Assault Helicopter Company, 1st Aviation Regiment

PFC Gary Wetzel - January 8, 1968

 

PFC (later Sp4c) Gary Wetzel was a door gunner on "Robin Hood 866" in January, 1968. He was nearing the end of his second tour when his helicopter was hit by an enemy RPG rocket while landing in a hot LZ with an insertion team. The grounded helicopter was hit repeatedly by enemy fire and the pilot, Bill Dismukes, was wounded. As PFC Wetzel went to the assistance of his pilot, another enemy rocket impacted the ship just behind the pilot's seat. Wetzel was blown out of the helicopter, suffering severe wounds to his right arm, chest and legs, and his left arm was almost severed from his body - hanging only by a flap of skin. In spite of his multiple wounds, Wetzel climbed back into the damaged ship and took an enemy automatic weapon position under fire with his door gun. The enemy gun had the American troops pinned and Wetzel was able to destroy it with his fire. Wetzel then tried to go to the aid of his pilot again, but passed out from loss of blood. When he regained consciousness, his crew chief was dragging the wounded pilot to the shelter of a nearby dike. Wetzel crawled over and attempted to help the crew chief move the pilot to safety, but passed out a second time. After he and the other survivors were rescued, Wetzel's left arm was amputated and he spent five months in military hospitals recovering from his injuries and infections. Gary Wetzel was awarded the Medal of Honor on November 19, 1968.

 

 

 

229th Aviation Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (#775)

Captain Ed Freeman - November 14, 1965

 

Captain Ed Freeman served as Second-in-command of A Company, 229th Aviation Battalion in 1965-66. On November 14, 1965, he flew in support of LTC Hal Moore and the 1/7th Cavalry fighting against three battalions of NVA at LZ X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley. Captain Freeman flew 14 missions into the face of enemy fire over the course of the first day to deliver much needed ammo and water, and to evacuate wounded soldiers. He was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at LZ X-Ray on July 16, 2001.

 

 

 

US Army 229th Aviation Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (#888)

Major Bruce Crandall - November 14, 1965

 

Major Bruce Crandall was commander of A Company, 229th Aviation Battalion, on November 14, 1965 at LZ X-Ray. With Captain Freeman's ship following him, Major Crandall flew 14 mission into the hot LZ , taking intense enemy fire to deliver supplies and evacuate wounded from the battle. As his ship was damaged by enemy fire (his crew chief was also wounded on one flight), Major Crandall was forced to switch to another aircraft. He flew a total of three different ships in his effort to support the troops at LZ X-Ray. Major Crandall was finally awarded the Medal of Honor on February 26, 2007.

 

 

 

USMC Marine Observation Squadron Six (VMO-6)

Captain Stephen Pless, USMC - August 19, 1967

 

On the afternoon of August 19, 1967, Captain Steve Pless and his crew were flying medevac escort near Quang Ngai (south of Chu Lai in I Corps). On the way to a pick-up of wounded ROK Marines, they heard an emergency call on the "Guard" channel from a transport helicopter. It had set down to make repairs on the beach, and was attacked by a large number of VC. Four Americans had been left on the ground when the ship took off, and they were being overrun by the enemy. Determining that the H-34 they were escorting could make the initial medevac pick-up without their support, Pless and his crew decided to respond to the emergency call. As they approached the site they could see the enemy beating and hacking at the four American prisoners. Pless took his gunship into a gun and rocket run, targeting a large group of VC in the clearing. Driving the enemy off with his gun run, Pless landed between the Americans and the enemy. Gunnery Sergeant Poulson jumped out and ran to support the single American still capable of walking. Putting the American on board the aircraft, Poulson, followed by the copilot and other crewman raced to help the other Americans. Determining one of the Americans to be dead, the three crewman began carrying the two injured Americans toward their Huey. At this point the VC attacked and tried to overrun the crew and helicopter. Pulling out their side arms, the crew alternately dragged the injured Americans and fired at oncoming VC. Some of the enemy came within a few feet of their Huey while they were loading the injured aboard. When all were aboard, Pless applied power to his grossly overloaded Huey and took off over the water. The skids of the ship touched the water four times before he finally got the aircraft to gain altitude. Pless jetisoned his rocket pods and ordered the crew to throw out all unnecessary items from the cabin. They landed the injured at Chu Lai First hospital and returned to their base at Ky Ha. The next day Pless and his crew learned that 20 VC dead had been found on the beach with evidence of many more enemy casualties being dragged off. Captain Pless was promoted to Major in September, 1967, and was awarded the Medal of Honor on January 19, 1969. The rest of his crew, Captain Rupert Fairfield, GySgt Leroy Poulson and LCpl John Phelps were all awarded the Navy Cross.

 

 

 

Skinner's Philosophy:

 

Because the 3D models used for the aircrew utilize modern flight gear I have chosen to model the skins as "modern aircraft with nostalgic patterns", as opposed to actual Vietnam era skins.. The significance of this is that I have chosen to skin the aircrew in contemporary flight uniforms. I felt that this was more fitting in a setting that involves modern orders of battle, and is also less of an immersion-killer than seeing Vietnam era "uniforms" on clearly modern objects.

 

 

A note about the Crew Chiefs & Door Gunners:

 

Since enlisted US troops don't wear rank/rate insignia on flightsuits, their rank/rate is displayed on their nametag. Since there are no specific nametag textures for the crew chief/door gunner texture, I have added a nametag to the velcro on the chest armor (as is standard practice).

 

In the case of the VMO-6 skin, since I have the names of all crewmembers, I opted to put GySGt Poulson on the nametag. This is the result of a coin flip and should not be considered a slight to LCpl Phelps, who was awarded the Navy Cross as well as GySgt Poulson.

 

In choosing names for the other textures, I opted for US servicemembers who received the Medal of Honor. SFC Paul Smith received the Medal of Honor posthumously in the Global War on Terror, and represents the United States Army in these skins.

 

Sergeant First Class Paul R. Smith distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action with an armed enemy near Baghdad International Airport, Baghdad, Iraq on April 4, 2003. On that day, Sergeant First Class Smith was engaged in the construction of a prisoner of war holding area when his Task Force was violently attacked by a company-sized enemy force. Realizing the vulnerability of over 100 soldiers, Sergeant First Class Smith quickly organized a hasty defense consisting of two platoons of soldiers, one Bradley Fighting Vehicle and three armored personnel carriers. As the fight developed, Sergeant First Class Smith braved hostile enemy fire to personally engage the enemy with hand grenades and anti-tank weapons, and organized the evacuation of three wounded soldiers from an armored personnel carrier struck by a rocket propelled grenade and a 60 mm mortar round. Fearing the enemy would overrun their defenses, Sergeant First Class Smith moved under withering enemy fire to man a .50 caliber machine gun mounted on a damaged armored personnel carrier. In total disregard for his own life, he maintained his exposed position in order to engage the attacking enemy force. During this action, he was mortally wounded. His courageous actions helped defeat the enemy attack, and resulted in as many as 50 enemy soldiers killed, while allowing the safe withdrawal of numerous wounded soldiers. Sergeant First Class Smith's extraordinary heroism and uncommon valor are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, the Third Infantry Division 'Rock of the Marne,' and the United States Army.

 

Updating from Earlier Versions:

Version 1.21 or earlier:

Remove the folder "Army 101AD_LaPointe" prior to installation.

 

Version 1.02 or earlier:

DCS World 1.2.7 changes the pilot and gunner texture files, so the textures have been updated accordingly in this file. In order to clear out the obsolete files, go to the individual folders and remove the following files:

  • Gunner_UH1_*.dds
  • Pilot_UH1_USMC.dds

Installation:

Copy the folders (except for TempTextures; see below) to your Liveries\uh-1h folder (either in DCS World\Bazar or Saved Games\DCS).

 

Optional:

I have included files that have (IMHO) improved the textures of the pilots and door gunners. They now wear the standard green and grey nomex flight gloves and have pencil pockets on their left sleeves, similar to my USN and USMC uniform textures. Additionally, I included a 1st Cavalry patch that blocks the alpha channel for the First Sergeant rank, which removes sleeve rank insignia from the gunners' flightsuits (enlisted folks in the US services don't wear rank insignia on flightsuits).

 

To enable these textures, just copy the contents of the _Optional\TempTextures folder to your DCS World\Bazar\TempTextures folder. To disable the textures, just delete them from TempTextures and the default textures will be used instead.

 

Optional:

The release of DCS World 1.2.4 added the ability to add texture paths using the file "autoexec.cfg" in your Saved Games\DCS\Config folder. This will allow you to save hard drive space as long as the skin filenames are unique. My skins support this, so any DDS file with the same name will be identical.

 

In order to enable this feature, add the following line to autoexec.cfg (be sure to create the file if it doesn't exist):

table.insert(options.graphics.VFSTexturePaths, "C:/Users/<username>/Saved Games/DCS/Textures")

You can use any path (even a different drive), but you must use forward slashes for your path. Backslashes won't work here.

 

Then, you can move all of the DDS files from each of the skin folders to this new folder you've added to your path. Allowing overwrites is not a problem, as I use unique names for each file. Finally, be sure to go into each description.lua file and change all "false" entries to "true."

 

 

Special thanks to upuaut for assistance with the more "exotic" material names, as well as the assistance with custom rotor colors.

 

You are free to use any of the textures (e.g. USMC door gunner) in other skins or projects as long as proper credit is provided in the readme file.

           DCS: F-14 by Heatblur Simulations Available for Pre-Purchase
       
      Pre-purchase and save $10 from

      The DCS: F-14 Tomcat by Heatblur Simulations is now available for pre-purchase with a $10 discount. Early Access release of a feature-complete F-14B will be this winter.
      The Grumman F-14 Tomcat was a two-crew, variable geometry, maritime air superiority fighter that served with the US Navy for 32 years and continues to serve with the IRIAF in Iran. The F-14 was the US Navy's frontline fighter from the 1970s until the mid-2000s. Over the course of its long service life it also became the US Navy's premier precision ground-attack platform and lone airborne reconnaissance asset.
      Outstanding features of the aircraft are the swing-wing configuration, crew of two, and the powerful AN/AWG-9 Weapons Control System (WCS) and radar. The AWG-9 allows employment of the powerful AIM-54 Phoenix air to air missile while the LANTIRN pod allows the ability to carry out precision ground strikes using laser guided bombs. The F-14 Tomcat was present during many pivotal historic moments such as the two Gulf of Sidra incidents, Operation Desert storm in Iraq, the conflict in Yugoslavia, Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was also immortalized in the iconic motion picture, Top Gun, and starred in several other feature films including The Final Countdown, Executive Decision, and others.
      In addition, the Tomcat was also a vital player in the Iran-Iraq war during the 80s, flying for the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force which had acquired the F-14A from the US prior the Islamic Revolution of 1979.



      More screenshots
      The Heatblur Simulations F-14A/B Tomcat aims to simulate this iconic aircraft as a high-fidelity module for DCS, being the culmination of several years of research, coding and modelling.
      Special points of consideration amongst the many features are the external and internal graphic model created using laser scanning and photogrammetry from real Tomcats at various museums, the detailed modelling of the AN/AWG-9 and the ability to fly as a two-crew aircraft in multiplayer.

      MiG-29 for DCS World Available Now
      This is a free update for Flaming Cliffs 3 customer, or a separate purchase option from DCS e-shop
       

      This week we bring you the long-awaited update to the MiG-29A, MiG-29S, and MiG-29G! This is the last of the major updates to DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 (FC3) line of aircraft. As with the other updated FC3 aircraft, the MiG-29 now incorporates a Professional Flight Model (PFM) that will continue to undergo development and improvement during the early access period.
      Additionally, the MiG-29 cockpit and external model have been greatly improved, and other changes have been made like:
      Option for casual gamer flight dynamics that prevents departures to stalls, automatic angle of attack limiter, and a G limiter. While the PFM for the MiG-29 is very realistic, some player may prefer a more forgiving aircraft to fly. As part of the PFM, we have tuned the available angular velocity of roll. The braking effect of the braking chute has been increased. The fuel level in internal fuel tank 1 has been increased. The MiG-29 "Fulcrum" is a Russian-designed, twin-engine, supersonic fighter. First operational in the early 1980s, the Fulcrum is a "light weight" fighter, comparable to the American F/A-18 Hornet and F-16. Designed to work in conjunction with the larger Su-27 Flanker, the MiG-29 is armed with an internal 30mm cannon and both infrared- and radar-guided air-to-air missiles. For air-to-ground tasks, the MiG-29 can be armed with a large array of unguided bombs and rockets.
      In addition to a sophisticated pulse doppler radar, the MiG-29 is also equipped with a passive Infrared Search and Track (IRST) sensor that allows the Fulcrum to detect and target enemy aircraft just based on their infrared emissions. This allows the MiG-29 to make stealthy attacks with no warning!
      The Fulcrum is a highly-maneuverable fighter in a dogfight, and when paired with the helmet mounted sight and the AA-11 "Archer" air-to-air missile, it is a very lethal adversary. The MiG-29 has also been widely exported and has served in many countries that include Germany, Iran, Ukraine, and Poland.
      Key Features of the MiG-29 for DCS World:
      A professional level flight model provides unmatched flight physics that allow you to truly feel what it's like to fly this amazing aircraft. Designed and tested by a former MiG-29 pilot! A true model of the MiG-29 flight control system that allows you to perform the "cobra" and other "out of the envelope" maneuvers. Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit. Accurate MiG-29 Fulcrum model, squadron markings, and weapons. Includes instant action, single missions, and a campaign. Battle the Hornet in head-to-head combat. Note: The MiG-29 for DCS World is identical to the MiG-29 in Flaming Cliffs 3. Owners of FC3 do not need to purchase.



      The main differences in the new PFM against SFM MiG-29
      SFM had very basic stability/controllability model, where stick deflection defines required g-load (1 g auto-trim system).
      In real life, the MiG-29 is a plane with natural positive stability without any g-load feedback (as Su-27, for example) with additional longitudinal stability augmentation system (LSAS) and dampers.
      MiG-29 PFM carefully models real plane longitudinal stability and controllability characteristics of the plane itself as well as LSAS algorithms.
      Lateral and directional stability and controllability were tuned as well.
      The true effect from leading edge slats was added.
      To model the distinctive features of the plane aeroelasticity effect were added for ailerons together with the limited ability of the actuators.
      Roll rate is dependent on AoA and dynamic pressure and is very close to the real prototype.
      The plane has a very pronounced effect of ground proximity to its longitudinal controllability, which is modelled.
      Stick limiter algorithm is fundamentally changed in comparison to SFM to have it like the real thing.
      Autopilot modes are made closer to the real.
      What to do:
      Fine tuning of lateral and directional stability/controllability Engine fine tuning to adjust thrust for 70-80% rpm range High AoA and post-stall effects and behaviour tuning DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update
      This week’s Open Beta release saw some key changes that include:
      Introduced the updated MiG-29 Increased range of the new HY-2 Silkworm anti-ship missile to 100 km Added the reload times of the SA-2 SAM and HY-2 Increased launch rate of the Ticonderoga Improved AI taxi logic on the carrier deck Flight model improvement of the drag curve, motor performance, and dynamic launch zone of the AIM-9L/M Sidewinder Several AJS-37 Viggen and MiG-21bis fixes and improvements Corrected Hornet TDC moving to stow position after target breaks a lock, aerial refueling Instant Action missions, adjusted TCTS pod drag value, radar B-Sweep no longer moves outside the tactical area, the B-Sweep returns to normal scan after the radar loses lock (B-Sweep hang after an undesignate key break lock already fixed this month) You can read the complete change log on the DCS forum
      We are on track to have the JHMCS with AIM-9X, FPAS page, fixed antenna logic, and AGM-65E and AGM-65F for the Hornet by the end of this month. In parallel, the HARM and ATFLIR pod are being developed, but these are complex tasks and will take longer.
      DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and DCS: Persian Gulf Map Bundle Option
      In addition to the standard bundle pack of the Hornet, Persian Gulf map, and the Su-33, we are now offering a separate bundle pack of just the Hornet and Persian Gulf map for just $79.99! This is a $129.98 value!
      For those that already own the Su-33 as part of Flaming Cliffs 3 or the stand-alone Su-33 for DCS World, this bundle pack is for you.
      Please find the offer on our e-Shop
      Persian Gulf Blue Flag Event
      We are proud to announce our participation in the next official event for Blue Flag: Persian Gulf! We have continued to add to and optimize the DCS: Persian Gulf map, and it’s now ready for its first official Blue Flag event.
       
      We will be making a free Eagle Dynamics module available to the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of each coalition. We and our friends at the Buddyspike team are working tirelessly to bring you more and more features, improved game play, and an even better multiplayer dynamic simulation.
      Players are pitted against each other in a battle to control the region with over 50 airfields and FARPs to capture along with carriers to defend and attack - this will be the biggest BlueFlag yet!
      The official round will be starting October 19th at 18:00 UTC and progress can be followed live on the BuddySpike Gadget available here along with more information about the Online Persistent Dynamic Campaign. The round will run for two weeks with victory handed to the coalition holding the most bases at the end of the round - or if the map is entirely conquered.

      Flying.
      As with all my previous helos flying is quite easy. With little practice, you can even hoover. Without fake flaps and airbrakes.
      Important here to control is using rudder and vector thrust control.
      Normally throttle vector control on 88-89 degree increase power 55% wait little and then increase to 100% and helo will take off nicely.
       
      Pack includes one helicopter with 3 skin for specific years to represent paintings used by Canadian Armed Forces.

      Have fun.
      Hope you will enjoy it same as me when working on it.
      Edit and report bugs.
