70 years USAF anniversary livery of the 149th Fighter Wing. I recently saw a picture of this livery and i had to reproduce it for the DCS community.

* UPDATE 4 *

This U.S. Air Force F-16 livery of the 149th Fighter Wing, Texas Air National Guard, is painted with World War II heritage markings. The 149th FW received authorization for the nonstandard markings in order to commemorate the United States Air Force 70th Anniversary. The markings represent the lineage of the 149th FW with the unit’s origins dating back to the 396th Fighter Squadron “Thunder Bums” P-47 paint scheme from 1944.

To achieve the best possible result, i had to take lee1hy's amazing textures as a base. If you want the best quality, download lee1hy's "New Airframe" mod here:  <a class="txttohtmllink" href="https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3306445/">https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3306445/</a>
Then put all the "F16_bl50_..._Normal.dds" of lee1hy in the "USAF - 149thFW" folder. After that edit the description.lua in "USAF - 149thFW" and remove those 3 symbols --> on the lines you'll find it.

The canopy seems still to be bugged. It loads individual canopies in modelviewer, but not in game. Maybe i do something wrong?!?

Update 20.12.19:    - Updated all textures and roughmets
                    - Put misplaced roundel under the wing to the right spot
                    - Added AN/AAQ-28 textures
Update 12.10.20:    - Removed generic numbers
Credits go out to lee1hy for the beautiful clean textures.

As always, if you have some suggestions, please write them in the comments.
