VMFA-232 'Red Devils' Repaint Twin Pack for the MS Acceleration F/A-18 Hornet by Nathan Havercroft

This is a set of VMFA-232 "Red Devils" textures for the FSX Acceleration F/A-18 Hornet. These schemes were seen at the 2009 Miramar Airshow.

This repaint is freeware, however, please do not upload this repaint anywhere without my permission. If you would like to use these textures as a base for your own repaints please ask first!

Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 232 (VMFA-232) is a United States Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet squadron. Nicknamed the "Red Devils", the squadron is based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California and fall under the command of Marine Aircraft Group 11 (MAG-11) and the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW).
The squadron is also attached to Carrier Air Wing 11 and deploys with them onboard the USS Nimitz. The Red Devils are the oldest and most decorated fighter squadron in the Marine Corps. In May 2005 they deployed with the rest of CVW-11 aboard the USS Nimitz to the Western Pacific and Persian Gulf, participating in combat operations in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and multinational exercises with Japan, Egypt, and India until November 2005.

Early in the Nimitz deployment, several of the squadron members were interviewed for the PBS documentary Carrier. In 2007 the squadron deployed on the Nimitz again for a six month cruise to the Persian Gulf. Four months later they did another WestPac deployment on the Nimitz. In January 2010 VMFA-232 accepted two F/A-18D Hornet aircraft and left in May 2010 for their current deployment to Kandahar, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMFA-232)
