  1. With the release of the master templates for the Viggen, I have released skin packs for the Viggen with US Navy and Marine Corps markings. The skin packs represent A-6 squadrons from the 1980s-1990s, with A-6 BuNos (serial numbers) and MODEXes (side numbers) from historical record. The tactical paint scheme based on the MIL-STD-2161A(AS) pattern for the F-4 Phantom, which has a fuselage shape similar to the AJS-37 Viggen. The skin packs include six to eight skins, usually with one hi-color "CAG bird" as well as low color line birds. Each skin has a "normal" version and a weathered version. Weathered skins have a bleached effect as if the aircraft were heavily exposed to the sun for months on end. Normal skins include pilots with green flightsuits, while weathered skins include pilots with desert flightsuits. All links to the skins can be found here. Screenshots to follow
  2. EDIT: These skins are now available for the Su-33. Feel free to trap in style! Su-27 Volume I: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-27 Volume II: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-27 Volume III: Adversaries CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-33 Volume I: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Su-33 Volume II: CombatAce LOF DCS Repository Inspired by some of Clave's fantasy artwork, I decided to skin the Su-27 for the US Navy. So far I have done the VF-21 Freelancers and the VF-124 Gunfighters. A number of markings have been Westernized ("NO STEP" instructions replacing the Russian "X", intake warnings, ejection seat and rescue markings, etc.). I deviated to a degree from the artwork, and I have done CAG, CO, and Line skins (though no CAG skin for VF-124, which was a RAG and was not part of an operational Carrier Air Wing). Some shots of the VF-124 CO bird: And the VF-124 Line Bird: And here are the skins for VF-21, starting with the CAG bird. I took a few liberties with Clave's idea and opted for the CVW-5 version of VF-21 with different paint schemes from the artwork. Here's the CO bird. Not quite as flashy as the CAG bird. And the line bird: All Su-27 USN skins have custom pilot graphics with western flight suits and squadron patches. I'm still working on the Jolly Rogers (though it will be VF-103 and not VF-84 as depicted in Clave's art; this is homage to my deployment with CVW-17 in 2000). I plan to do a CAG bird, line bird, and the CO bird in its 2000 Christmas theme.
  3. This is a series of US Navy and Marine Corps skin packs for the FJ-3/FJ-3M Fury, the navalized variant of the F-86 Sabre (the M version being Sidewinder capable). The idea of this series is to have a single skin for each squadron, and separate decals for each side number (Modex). The last 4 digits of the serial number (BuNo) use the USAF serial number to allow for dynamic BuNos, though the side number must be selected by choosing the skin itself. This will allow a common Modex pool and a single texture for each squadron, thereby allowing you to employ an entire squadron in a mission while keeping the hard drive and in-mission RAM footprint to a minimum. This post serves as a master links post. You can download the skin packs at the following mirrors: ED User Files: VF-24 Corsairs v1.1 VF-73 Jesters v1.1 VF-121 Pacemakers v1.1 VF-142 Fighting Falcons v1.1 VF-191 Satan's Kittens v1.1 VF-211 Red Checkertails v1.11 CombatAce: VF-24 VF-73 VF-121 VF-142 VF-191 VF-211 LOF: VF-24 VF-73 VF-121 VF-142 VF-191 VF-211
  4. Scramble Seawolves! This was the common call in Vietnam when the US Navy Riverine Forces and SEALs needed immediate fire support. Helicopter Attack Squadron (Light) Three (HAL-3), known as the Seawolves, was the most decorated unit in the Vietnam War. Seawolves flew UH-1B Huey gunships in all weather, day or night, in support of the Brown Water Navy. In fact, most of the missions were conducted at night in inclement weather, which is exactly when the SEALs preferred to operate. HA(L)-3 would conduct Close Air Support, Hot Medivac and Insertion/Extraction of SEAL Teams. You can find the skin on Combat Ace, LOF, and the DCS file repository. Some screenshots: Note the custom USN pilots and door gunners. A close up of the copilot and an action shot... Enjoy, and Fly Navy!
  5. This mod allows your logbook pilot to fly for the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps in addition to the default United States Air Force. The USN and USMC "countries" have their own sets of insignia and share a set of medals. Additionally, the option is there to update the USAF medals from the default medals (three of which are incorrect) to the actual USAF medals that can be earned in air combat. Regardless of whether you choose to update the USAF medals, the existing default medals will now include the "Combat V" as applicable. In addition to adding the proper USAF medals, the USN/USMC/USAF mod also removes the Navy and Marine Corps squadrons from the USAF entry (those patches were my mod to begin with, so I'll do with them whatever I please ). The entire USA squadron list is left intact for the USN/USMC mod. Note: the default alliance matrix keeps the USN and USMC as "neutrals", so that you still only need to make a "USA" unit in the mission editor. This just keeps things simple, at least until the DCS F/A-18C is released. USN Logbook and USN/USMC medals: USAF Logbook with updated medals (optional): The mod works with DCS World 1.2.6 and can be found at the following links: DCS File Repository LOF Combat Ace
