This pack represents VMFA-451 Warlords when they were deployed with CVW-13 on the U.S.S. Coral Sea in 1989 wearing the AK tail code. This was the only year the squadron was ever deployed at sea.
UPDATED - 8/11/2020:
2.5.6 compatible. Corrected helmet and pilot patch textures for the new 2.5.6 texture templates. Also corrected roughmet calls in the description.lua file. Delete the old skins if you have them installed.
Every attempt was made to faithfully reproduce these aircraft from various images on the internet. Some of them have true aircrew stencils on them, but there are several that do not. It is also worth noting that VMFA-451 used these schemes on F/A-18A aircraft, so the BuNo for each is for that variant. Therefore, this pack should be considered semi-historical.
