UPDATED - 8/11/2020:
2.5.6 compatible. Corrected helmet and pilot patch textures for the new 2.5.6 texture templates. Also corrected roughmet calls in the description.lua file. Delete the old skins if you have them installed.
UPDATED - 8/3/2018:
All aircrew patches have been reworked with the correct patches. Size of the aircraft numbers on the flaps have been increased.
NOTE: This pack represents schemes worn by the squadron's F/A-18A+ aircraft circa 2011.
Every attempt was made to faithfully reproduce these aircraft from various images on the internet. Most of them have true aircrew stencils on them, but there are several that do not. It is also worth noting that VFA-204 used these schemes on F/A-18A+ aircraft, so the BuNo for each is for that variant. Therefore, this pack should be considered semi-historical.
