This pack represents VMFA-451 Warlords when they were deployed with CVW-13 on the U.S.S. Coral Sea in 1989 wearing the AK tail code. This was the only year the squadron was ever deployed at sea.
UPDATED 2.9 - Added new pilot helmets and suits. Renamed folders for better sorting in in-game livery menus. Rebuilt description.lua to address bort number issues.
I'd like to give a huge thanks to Lee1hy for allowing me to include his F/A-18C roughmets in this download. His graciousness saved me a ton of time getting these skins prepped for 2.9.
You MUST delete the old skins completely if you have them installed.
Due ED download size limitations you must download from an external link.
Every attempt was made to faithfully reproduce these aircraft from various images on the internet. Some of them have true aircrew stencils on them, but there are several that do not. It is also worth noting that VMFA-451 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.
