Default repaint (textures only) of the Acceleration F-18. This scheme is based upon the experimental finish devised by aviation artist Keith Ferris in the late 70's and designed to break up the outlines of an aircraft using different shades of grays in a hard edged splinter style. Several aircraft, usually Navy F-14's, F-4's and aggressor F-5's took part in the trials, but the scheme has never largely been adopted. By Jason L. Terry.

description="The Hornet combines the ruggedness required of carrier-borne aircraft with speed and superior agility, especially at high angles of attack. Its powerful engines, canted vertical stabilizers, horizontal stabilators, large leading- and trailing-edge flaps, and sophisticated flight control system all contribute to a level of performance that makes the Hornet a versatile front-line fighter in several air forces around the world."
