Fictional Chilean Air Force and Chilean Navy liveries for the F/A-18C Hornet.

Fictional Chilean Air Force (Fuerza Aerea de Chile) and Chilean Navy (Armada de Chile) liveries for the F/A-18C Hornet.

Back in the 90s, the Chilean air force was in search of a new fighter to fill its ranks. Aircraft such as the Gripen, Mirage 2000, F/A-18 and F-16 were evaluated by the FACH. In the end, the F-16 was chosen over the others, due to its low cost, combat history, and incredible performance. 10 brand new Block 50 F-16C/Ds with a blue camouflage were ordered, and around 40 Mid Life Upgrade (MLU) Block 15 F-16A/Bs were bought from the Royal Netherlands Air Force within 10 years of the initial purchase.

The F/A-18 was turned down due to its high cost compared to other options, but its never too late to imagine what it wouldve looked like in service with the FACH, and the unlikely scenario in which the Navy had it as well.

There are 4 liveries in this pack:
- FACH Hornet in realistic, low visibility colors and blue rudders. This one is most likely what it would have looked like if it was chosen over the F-16.
- FACH Hornet in F-16A colors (F-16C Chilean blue camo is WIP).
- Armada Hornet with orange tails and high visibility markings.
- Armada Hornet with low visibility markings.
