The Italian Air Force ( Aeronautica Militare ) F16 Block 15 ADF  "L'ultima Diana" (Diana, the goddess of the hunt and the moon) paint scheme given to plane number M.M.7236 of the 23rd group "Veltro" to commemorate the "Farewell Falcon" event, which marked the end of operations for the 23rd group f16's in the Cervia AFB on April 16, 2010 and the disbanding of the 5º stormo (air wing).

[UPDATED 05/07/2020]

* various texture fixes.

- planned update will be the adaptation of the skin to the official template made by ED.

UPDATED ( 05/03/2020) - now with ventral fin text)

hey there hope you enjoy this nice italian skin, tail art hand painted by me on a wacom cintiq and i tried to recreate as much of the details as i could.
got a high res photo of the right ventral fin "special team" names provided to me by the original (real life) diana livery painter "Pier Paolo Maglio" after a "Digital Combat Simulator" facebook group user contacted him for me :) and added it to the skin.

more italian skins are on the way ;)

---------How to use------------
place the two folders in your C:\Users\*User Name*\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\F-16C_50
you'll need to create the "F-16C_50" folder if its not there.

--------Work files and F16C Template--------------------
with this skin i'm providing all of my work files in psd format  (photoshop 2019)
which include :
120 decals , all in vector form, as smart objects. placed in their real life places on the jet.
guide layers with colors for every part so you can work better in the model viewer.
detail layer of panel line and rivets in black and white. - put in multiply over the solid color layer.
weathering layer.

you can find these work  files here ( not updated to the official template) :

-------working on the wings----------
there's only one working file for the wings. since its a template for both.
to work on the right wing, work normally and save the dds file as F16_bl50_wing_R.dds
to work on the left wing - first flip horizontal the canvas ( in photoshop - image tab > rotate image > flip canvas horizontal). place everything you need on the respective layers, flip back and save as F16_bl50_wing_L.dds

as always, HAVE FUN!
and hope you'll like it :)
