So for the faux pacific that myself and some of the lads from IL2 Australia have been working on we have had to create a number of new skins. I will be posting links to all of them here so when you need them to play in the IL2 aus pacific server or some of the single player missions I plan on releasing they are all in the same place. Not all of them are 4k yet, I will upgrade them as I get the chance.

For context if anyone is confused.

4k USAAF P-40e-1 Skins by Wildcat


 


USAAF 49th Fighter Group, 8th Fighter Squadron


The 8th Fighter Squadron traces its origins to the formation of the 49th Pursuit Group at Selfridge Field, Michigan on 20 November 1940. The 8th Pursuit Squadron was equipped with Seversky P-35s that were transferred from the 1st Pursuit Group that departed to Rockwell Field, California. In May 1941, the squadron proceeded to Morrison Field, West Palm Beach, Florida, to train in the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk fighter.


 


With the advent of World War II, the squadron moved to Australia and became part of Fifth Air Force in January 1942. It was re-\designated as the 8th Fighter Squadron in May 1942. The unit received Curtiss P-40 Warhawks in Australia and, after training for a short time, provided air defense for the Northern Territory.


The squadron moved to New Guinea in October 1942 to help stall the Japanese drive southward from Buna to Port Moresby. It engaged primarily in air defense of Port Moresby; also escorted bombers and transports, and attacked enemy installations, supply lines, and troop concentrations in support of Allied ground forces.


The 8th participated in the Allied offensive that pushed the Japanese back along the Kokoda Track, took part in the Battle of the Bismarck Sea in March 1943, fought for control of the approaches to Huon Gulf, and supported ground forces during the campaign in which the Allies eventually recovered New Guinea. It covered the landings on Noemfoor and had a part in. the conquest of Biak.

Have to admit that the Black Sea map makes a good faux Pacific theatre. Every time I see A20 pics from the Devs my mind is telling me it's flying over Pacific jungle and I have to remind myself it's a lend lease over the Eastern Front lol.

Nice skins guys. I like em. Have you posted them up on the P40 skin page as well? Probably worth it, you might even get some help converting skins/making skins or whatever. I would give you a hand if you wanted one.

These are great!

 

Having the Axis planes "dressed up" as Japanese makes them a worthwhile enemy to combat!

USAAF inspired LaGG 3 series 29/P-51B Mustang 4k Skin by Wildcat

 

I know this isn't pacific related but after getting excited about the prospect of the P-51 for the upcoming Battle of Bodenplate, I thought I would re skin something to look like a P-51b 'Old Crow'. After using it on one of my video's I've had a couple of requests for it, so here it is.

Edit: A couple of people have had issues with the zip file saying it is corrupted, this seems to be fixed if you use the most up to date version of winrar or whatever zip program you are using. If this doesn't work however here are the links to the individual .dds files which are not zipped so you should have no issues with them.

Japanese Army and Navy inspired Fw-190a-3 4k Skin by Wildcat

 

The IJN skins is modeled off a picture of a zero I found and the IJAAF skin is modeled loosely off a picture of a Ki-88. Neither are meant to represent either aircraft, just made them for a bit of fun.

 

Skins:

Just found this thread. Stunning work there. And what a great idea!

 

I agree that the Ju 88 is a better match for the Kyushu Q1W.

 

Now that BoK is out, there are some other aircraft that can be skinned up with USAAF, RAF, RNZAF, RAAF, markings.

 

And I wonder if modding will allow us to change the labels of the aircraft to show their faux-Pacific counterparts?

Another idea would be to change the skins on the naval units.

 

There was a recent comment in another thread about usng Kuban for naval battles. (LINK)... seems like there is a good case for it here too.

I'd love to have that "Japanese" PE-2, but can't seem to open the file. Is it possible to make this a zip like all of the others rather than a DDS file? Thanks.

Well, thanks a lot. That worked. And I decided to see what it looked like by jumping into a Flying Tiger's P-40 and shooting one down. Hell! Almost got shot down myself. Damn P-40 is so slow that I had a hard time catching 'im, and then got a face full of lead when I did! I sent him off with both engines smoking, but still flying. And all my ammo used up. Thanks again.
