MiG-29A Georgian Camouflage (Fictional)

This is a fictional MiG-29A skin of the Georgian Air Force, with the pattern based on both the Czech Republic and the Georgian MiG-21.

NOTE: This only works with DCS World 1.2.16 or earlier.  DCS World 1.5/2.0 uses a new MiG-29 model.

I originally did this at the request of a friend, who wished to have the Czech camouflage pattern on fictional Georgian MiGs. I used the Czech pattern as a starting point, then used the colors on the Georgian MiG-21 to finish the job.  Once I completed the pattern, I eventually decided to release it to the public.

In addition to Georgia, the skin is available to Russia, Ukraine, and Insurgents.


Installation:

These MiG-29A skins do not require you to overwrite any existing "slots"; they exist as individual skins using the standard definition.lua format.  Simply put the skins in your Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\ folder; you should be able to extract using the path that exists in this archive file.

In order to have the Georgian MiG-29A (and the skins) available for Georgia in the Mission Editor, you will need to update the db_countries.lua file located in DCS World\Scripts\Database.  Open the file in a text editor like Notepad++ and search for the following string:

    -- GEORGIA

This is the comment line that starts the Georgia section.

In the first section,you will see the following entries:

        cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-25");
        cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "An-26B");
        cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-25T");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "L-39ZA");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Yak-40");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "P-51D");

These are the planes available to Georgia in the mission editor.  Just add the following line:

    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "MiG-29A");


You may also optionally add that line to the section starting with

    -- INSURGENTS

This opens more possibilities for scenarios, and all of the included skins are available to the Insurgents as well as Russia and the Ukraine.


Change Log:
1.0    Initial Release


Special thanks to Jack for allowing the use and modification of his enhanced pylon texture, as well as his collaboration in developing MiG-29 skins that are not dependent on the original "slots" of the Flanker 2.5/LOMAC models.
