We have made a skinpack of VFA-14 "Tophatters" for the DCS world. Real VFA-14 flies by F/A-18E but we have F/A-18C in the game. Therefore the skins were adapted for F/A-18C according to the real insignia. Exceptionally because of esthetic reasons, we have choosen early paintschemes of VFA-14 while it was deployed on USS Nimitz.
We have also prepared a skin of 2017 as bonus. This skin has the insignia of USS John C. Stennis where VFA-14 is deployed present days.
The skinpack includes 5 skins:
— standard paintscheme
— CO (commanding officers)
— high visibility
— high visibility BC (black canopy and another style of the nose numbers)
— bonus skin ‘2017
Below, you can see the appearance of the skins and download them separately if needed.
In addition to the skins we have prepared, another "Tophatters" skinpack is available for F/A-18C in DCS: World. This pack was created by the player dino325 and includes the late coloring of the aircrafts of the squadron VFA-14.
You can download the pack by this link.
Installation process of skins in DCS: World is pretty easy and doesn't require special user's abilities or software (except an archiver).
It's needed to unpack the downloaded archive with skins into game's folder placed by path:
