Default VMFAT-101 Skin Pack!

This pack includes 3 historically accurate VMFAT-101 "Sharpshooters" liveries. Each one has been photo referenced to ensure they are as authentic as possible, and includes a number of pieces of vector drawn squadron art and numerous other details in an attempt to recreate these aircraft in as high fidelity as possible. Every aircraft livery also displays the correct BuNo (including inside the cockpit). However, some of the aircraft represented are A, not C model Hornets, so this pack should be considered semi-historical.

These skins represent an aggressor camouflage pattern seen during 2005 Carrier Qualifications, a 2012 livery in tribute to Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 11 "Devilfish" which supports VMFAT-101 and the rest of Marine Air Group 11, and also the 2014 CAG bird.
The aggressor (163130) later took on a role conducting flight & weapons testing at Point Mugu, and is available in a unique VX-30 Bloodhounds livery along with other test and evaluation squadron skins here.

As VMFAT-101 conducts strike fighter training for both Navy and Marine Corps students, the squadron typically flies with dual Navy/Marines markings which are present on these liveries as well. Each skin also includes the correct pilot names stenciled by the canopy, as well as custom helmets, patches, and flight suits. All credit for the green helmet textures used for the CAG pilot goes to Texac.

Also provided for the CAG skin is an alternate high visibility fuel tank design featuring the Sharpshooters logo. If you wish to use this one, simply go into the livery's folder and swap the [ALTERNATE] in the filename from one fuel tank texture file to the other.

Each of the liveries uses a custom roughmet fix that gets rid of the ugly pylon shadows baked into the default textures. You can download this fix standalone here if you wish to apply it to all your other Hornet textures.

Installation: Copy the three different livery folders included in the download into [YOUR DCS INSTALL]/CoreMods/aircraft/FA-18C/Liveries/FA-18C_hornet folder.
These skins are available for the US faction in game, the Aggressor skin can also be used by the US Aggressors.

Please do not reupload these skins anywhere without permission.

Please let me know if you find any errors with the skin or find something else that could be improved. Enjoy!
