This pack contains 5 VMFA-142 liveries from 2008: 1 high-vis CAG and 4 low-vis skins. This is only pack 1 of 2, make sure you have both installed otherwise the second pack will not work properly!
Represented are the following aircraft from VMFA-142 Flying Gators stationed at NAS Atlanta around spring 2008, shortly before the squadron was placed into cadre status later that year:
VMFA-142 modex 200 CAG (16400)
VMFA-142 modex 201 (162409)
VMFA-142 modex 202 (162433)
VMFA-142 modex 204 (162470)
VMFA-142 modex 206 (162472)
The rest of the squadron plus 3 bonus liveries can be downloaded here: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3308437/
Each livery features correct pilot names, matching BUNOs on the fuselage and instrument panel, plus a number of photo referenced details and hand painted weathering to ensure they are as accurate as possible to their real life counterparts. Also included are custom MARPAT helmets (both woodland and desert), squadron patches, nametags, and tan flight suits. The CAG bird sports green engine/intake covers.
INSTALLATION: Copy the four different livery folders included in the download in to [YOUR DCS INSTALL]/CoreMods/aircraft/FA-18C/Liveries/FA-18C_hornet folder, or in your Saved Games folder.
NOTE: These liveries use cross-linked textures in order to reduce their size, so make sure you have them all installed and do not change the folder names in order for each to work properly!
Updated on 3/22/20: Improved some stencils on 2008 CAG bird.
