This Hornet skin is based on the uniform, logo and field of the LSU (Louisiana State University) 2019 National Champion college football team. Included are both a clean airshow and dirty combat version of the paint scheme. Geaux Tigers!
"LSU Tiger" is my F/A 18-C Lot 20 flyable Hornet paint scheme based on the football uniform of the Lousiana State University (aka LSU for those who don't know) Tigers. My goal was to make the paint scheme represent as many images and color patterns of the LSU football team as possible. The tiger eye appearing on each side of the nose is taken fr om the logo on the 50 yard line of Tiger Stadium (aka "Death Valley, the place wh ere opponents dreams come to die"). The tiger face on the vertical tail wings is taken from the official team logo. The rounded "LSU" across the forward cockpit area matches the LSU from the football helmet. The pilots helmet is based on the teams football helmet colors and stripe including the same version of the tiger head. Finally, the "GEAUX TIGERS" (pronounced "Go Tigers") on the fuselage is the teams official battle cry. FYI, the official team name is, "The Fighting Tigers of Lousiana State University" though they're usually referred to as "The Tigers" or sometimes "The Bayou Bengals".
