HMLA-167 "Warriors" Skin Pack released!

Recommended Posts

Marine Light Helicopter Squadron (HML) 167 was commissioned in April 1968 in Vietnam, and flew the UH-1E in combat operations until June 1971, where it was the last Marine helicopter squadron in Vietnam. Of note, HML-167 was the first unit to drop a bomb from a helicopter, accomplished with the use of the Helicopter Trap Weapon (HTW). In June 1971, HML-167 returned stateside to MCAS New River, North Carolina, as part of the 2nd Marine Air Wing.

In 1972, HML-167 received the UH-1N Twin Huey, which it would fly until 2012 when the UH-1N was replaced by the UH-1Y Venom. In 1984, HML-167 received its first AH-1T Cobras and became a composite squadron of Cobras and Hueys. HML-167 was redesignated Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron (HMLA) 167 in April 1986, and as such designated as a permanent composite squadron of both Cobras and Hueys. HMLA-167 began upgrading to the AH-1W Super Cobra in late 1989.

Today the HMLA-167 "Warriors" fly the UH-1Y Venom and the AH-1W Super Cobra.

This is a collection of eleven UH-1 skins representing HMLA-167. The skins included are:

  • TV-30 (1969 as HML-167)*
  • TV-29 (1970 as HML-167)*
  • "Santa 1" (1969 as HML-167)
  • TV-30 (1982 as HML-167)
  • TV-11 (1999)
  • TV-03 (ca. 2003)
  • TV-06 (ca. 2003)
  • TV-04 (ca. 2005)
  • TV-06 (ca. 2005)
  • TV-05 (CO bird ca. 2008)
  • TV-00 (UH-1Y CO bird ca. 2013)

* TV-29 and 30 (1969-70) are also included in my USMC Vietnam Skin Pack version 1.21 and later.

My photobucket account hit its quota this month, so that's why you're seeing the placeholders. What can I say? I've been a skinning fool!

CombatAce has the pics directly on their server, so they are under no such limitation.

Yeah, Fittop. I was a$$es and elbows getting my TARGET profile out for the DCS World 1.2.8 release, and now that it's out I can breathe a bit easier (and worry about improving it, as I already have some ideas).

BTW the skin pack is now a featured download at LOF!
