This is the template I used to create the pilot skins for default A-10 and F/A-18 aircraft.
The template is 2048x2048 to accommodate the higher resolution F-15C pilot skin, though the original A-10 skin is available as background. Since the F/A-18C pilot skins use the same texture (albeit shaded), I have added USN/USMC units as well.
The template includes green, desert, and black flightsuits, the SRU-21P survival vest, different unit patches, morale patches, A-10 type patches, and pencil patches. In addition, there is a modular nametag set that allows different colored nametags, different types of warfare badges (e.g. USN Pilot & NFO wings, Jump wings, etc.), and a place to add your name.
Enhanced and color matched some lower resolution textures
Added some USN squadrons
Added USN/USMC fighter squadrons, USN Carrier Air Wings, and USN/USMC aircraft patches to selectable items.
Added more options for warfare insignia for all US services.
Added "leather nametags" for all services.
Added brown boots as option for F/A-18 drivers.
Added shading master for applying the darker shaded skin for the F/A-18 LOD.
Miscellaneous minor fixes and enhancements.
