UH-1H US Army Desert Skins


Us Army Desert Skin Pack

 

 

This is a collection of UH-1 desert skins for the US Army circa 1986 and Fictional skins ca. 2004. While the 101st Airborne and 10th Mountain Divisions are the unit patches on the flightsuits, the skins do not specifically represent these units. Rather, this is a collection of skins with minor variations in order to create good scenarios using the desert terrain (either Highwayman-Ed's terrain, or Nevada upon its release).

 

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 choosing names for the 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. Here is his Medal of Honor Citation:

 

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.

 

 

 

Installation:

Copy the folders to your Liveries\uh-1h folder (either in DCS World\Bazar or Saved Games\DCS).

 

 

 

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. custom desert flightsuits and helmets) in other skins or projects as long as proper credit is provided in the readme file.

        Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,
      We are delighted to announce that arguably the most iconic helicopter gunship in the world is now available for pre-order with a 30% discount. DCS: Mi-24 Hind takes helicopter gameplay to a new level and sets a new standard for DCS in cockpit look and feel. We hope you will enjoy it. Check out our Hind pre-order video here.
      Derived from the Mi-8, the Hind airframe is fitted with a streamlined retractable undercarriage and stub-wings that provide lift at high speeds as well as a structure for attaching guided and unguided munitions. This massive machine combines firepower and troop-carrying capabilities, making it a force to be reckoned with.
      Our new Volumetric Cloud System requires a significant rewrite of our radar, sensor and weapon system code. To integrate the clouds smoothly, the process will be split into stages. The Clouds will initially be released as a purely visual feature, with the possibility to select a wide variety of weather presets from the Mission Editor. After the initial release, we will finalise the work on radar and weapon systems as well as how AI behaves in the new weather conditions. This is particularly relevant for close air combat line-of-sight behaviour.
      Please note, DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and DCS: The Channel will be released within a short time frame of Open Beta 2.7.0. which we have pushed out to the 7th of April 2021 due to the heavy testing and 3rd party integration requirements.
      Thank you for your passion and support.
        Yours sincerely,
      Eagle Dynamics Team
        Mi-24 HIND
      Pre-order now
      Known for its great exploits by the airborne units of the Soviet Army during the 1980 Soviet–Afghan War, the Hind is tough, durable and packs a heavy punch.
      DCS: Mi-24P Hind is a simulation of the legendary Mi-24 attack helicopter developed in the USSR and first introduced operationally in 1972. It has seen extensive action over the past 40 years as an effective combat air support helicopter. Fast, reliable and loved by pilots, this incredible machine still serves in more than 50 countries!
      DCS: Mi-24P is an opportunity to touch history and try yourself as a pilot of the legendary helicopter!
      Work is progressing steadily and we are excited to announce the list of features planned for Early Access release. Check out the In Development Screenshots.
      Key Features of DCS: Mi-24P Hind
      On pre-order/early access:
      Professional flight dynamics and engine modelling with high precision characteristics of the real aircraft in all ranges of altitude, temperature and speeds for different weights and flight configurations. Two 6DOF highly detailed cockpits (RU and EN versions available). Fully clickable cockpits with interactive control of all onboard systems with mouse. Multi-crew. Second crew member can be another player or “Petrovich” AI (basic AI level during early access phase). Detailed modeling of the entire electrical, fuel, hydraulic, anti-icing, fire protection, SAS, autopilot and radio systems. Full modeling of armament and weapons systems with ability to use 30mm cannon, unguided rockets (S-8, S-13, S-24B) and bombs from both cockpits in addition to the guided ATGM 9M114 operated by forward seated pilot-operator. Standard Russian new and weathered liveries in addition to Iraqi and Syrian schemes. Early Access manual Russian and English versions. Training missions. On release:
      Cargohold gunner with KORD machine gun. Advanced “Petrovich” AI features for pilot or pilot-operator seats. Addition of ATGM 9M120 (HEAT and HE versions) and R-60M air to air missiles. Sling cargo operations. Advanced damage modeling. Additional liveries and livery template. Manual in Russian and English (full list of languages is TBD). Campaign by Eagle Dynamics. Pre-order DCS: Mi-24 Hind now and save 30%. Click here.
      The Mi-24P Early Access is planned for release in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
      We are currently working on new reflections using extended pre-calculated light technology.
      The Mi-24P cockpit is roomy, pressurized and chemically and biologically filtered, making it a comfortable place to fight and operate in.
      The multi crew mode will be available from Early Access and will unveil our initial “Petrovich” AI.
      We look forward to sharing more information closer to the Early Access release in late Q2 2021. One of our top priorities will be the interaction and infrastructure for Commander and Operator AI.
      DCS: Mi-24 Hind
      Available for a limited time at only $48.95
      Thank you for all your trust, support and enthusiasm.
      Yours Sincerely,
        Eagle Dynamics Team

      Anyone who runs is a VC. Anyone who stands still is a well-disciplined VC
      UH-1H HUEY SLICKS ( VIETNAM WAR )
       
       
      The final Huey pack ( for now ) in this series. 13 various slicks from the Vietnam war period. They include the following skins: Air America , 1/9 Cav, 82 Medical, 101 Airborne, 101 Aviation Company, 116 AHC 1 and 2 Platoon colours, 118 AHC 1 and 2 Platoon colours, 498 Medical, 9 Sqn RAAF, 213 Sqn VNAF, and finally 215 Sqn VNAF.
      Same drill as the previous packs, all in one plug and play ( hopefully, my track record of mistakes are over ) I am working on a gunship version of the Huey, however i am struggling with getting a working cockpit for the H model Huey, so a little patience and hopefully I shall have some armed and dangerous hueys for your enjoyment !!
      Thanks to Yakarov79 for the original model.
      As ever ENJOY
