Where was Maverick between Topgun 1 and 2?

Recommended Posts

after the onset of night blindness, he embarked on a career with the Judge Advocate General, including a famous case involving the Commanding Officer of Guantanamo Bay.


He later had corrective surgery and was able to return to flight status. However, due to reverting career fields so late, he is effectively stalled in his career not to rise higher than O-6.

Donald Bellasario also did a successful TV show based on his legal career, although the Marines were changed from litigants to co-stars


There are rumors of a successful sheep dipped career with the intelligence community as well, but to date FOIA requests have all been denied.

      I was watching some videos on public domain about the Air Force personnels who help loading weapons for some training sorties.. The Maverick missiles appear to be some newer variants that I haven't seen before (through any media). 
      Funny thing is that they have mixed colors Olive Drab for the motors while some plain White ,some Grey (like the 65F) What are those models ??

      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.

      TopGun Pilots flies again in StrikeFighters 2!!!! Yep...nuff said.
      This mod will not update any existing SF2 files, but I recommend that you back up your mod folder (...\Objects\Pilots).
      There are 2 steps to this install...(Three counting backing up!)
      1) Copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" to your target mod folder. My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was, but yours my be different...
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 NorthAtlantic\
      * It will ask to overwrite, go ahead and overwrite. This mod should not change anything you already have installed - unless you, by some chance named something with the same names as I did. Hence the back up recommendation.
      NOTE: You should be able to install these pilots in SF2 game for most, if not all, jets. It doesn't have to be an F-14 or StrikeFighters2 NorthAtlantic. Have Mav and Goose fly and F-111?!! Enjoy!
      2) Locate and update the "data.ini" file of the jet you want these pilots installed in. In my example, I will update the "F-14A_82_DATA.INI" file located in...(again, your location may be different)...
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 NorthAtlantic\Objects\Aircraft\F-14A_82
      * In my example, I am updating the "F-14A_82_DATA.INI" file. In the target jet's folder, locate the "*DATA.INI" file. Edit the file in a text editor (Notepad) and "Find" the "Crew" section in the "*DATA.INI" file. In this section, there should be a [Pilot] and [CoPilot] (if the plane has a copilot. F-14's do) sub-section.
      * Look for the "PilotModelName=..." entry and update it with Maverick and Goose's info (it's the name of the folders and ini files you copied into ...\Objects\Pilots in Step 1).
      NOTE: All pilots and copilots in your flight for this plane will get this change...So if you have a wingman, Mav and Goose will show up there too...Sorry, this can't be helped...
      All available Pilots...
      Example...Installing Mavrick and Goose into the "F-14A_82_DATA.INI" file...
      // Crew ---------------------------------------------------------
      // Updated Maverick as the Pilot
      MinExtentPosition=-0.25, 4.52, 0.32
      MaxExtentPosition= 0.25, 5.53, 1.54

      Armor .Thickness=12
      // Updated Goose as the CoPilot
      MinExtentPosition=-0.25, 2.98, 0.32
      MaxExtentPosition= 0.25, 3.99, 1.54
      * Save the data file and Maverick and Goose FLYS AGAIN!!! Do you feel the need for speed yet?
      That's it!!
      Credits and extras:
      I re-skinned AmokFloo's excellent LOD. If you want the full * Florian - "AmokFloo" package, you can get it here
      * Western Style Pilot Models (SF1/SF2)
