Operation unknown wip.
I've delyed the opening of the thread untill i get some work done.

briefing:
this mod is about the usmc operation iraqi freedom.
i will update more this week with all the detail and screens needed + the full planned addon list.

now as you see i aint a great speaker and dont like to give a long speech but i will let the screens talk.

USMC projects:

ch-53d sea stallion.
A CH-53 performing a helocast insertion during training off Hawaii
The CH-53/HH-53 has much combat experience during its lengthy service, with the U.S. military during the Vietnam War and as a Special Operations helicopter, and the Israeli Air Force.
The CH-53D served alongside the CH-53A through the rest of the Vietnam War, with both types performing a final service at the end of the conflict in performing evacuations of personnel from Saigon and Phnom Penh.[1]
U.S. Air Force HH-53 Super Jollies were the primary search-and-rescue helicopter in Southeast Asia between 1967 and 1975, inserted the Operation Ivory Coast rescue team into the North Vietnamese prison camp at Son Tay in 1970, and carried the Marines who attempted to rescue the crew of the SS Mayagüez. Marine-flown Navy Sea Stallions were the rotary-wing element of Operation Eagle Claw, the attempted rescue of American hostages in Iran in 1980 that ended in disaster and embarrassment at "Desert One".
The CH-53 is operated by the United States Marine Corps and Air Force in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is also operated by the Navy in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom throughout the region, deployed out of a squadron in Bahrain.
The CH-53D is due to return to the middle east in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. It will be performing the combat roles that the V-22 Osprey is not able to conduct at this time.

CH-46 SEA KNIGHT.
]Known colloquially as the "Phrog", and used in all Marine combat and peacetime environments since its introduction.[10] Still regularly flown by the Marine Corps, its longevity as a reliable airframe has led to such mantras as "phrogs phorever" and "never trust a helicopter under 30".[11]
CH-46E Sea Knights were used by the USMC during its 2003 invasion of Iraq. CH-46Es transported personnel, brought supplies to forward arming and refueling points (FARP), carried ammunition and various tasks. Marine CH-46Es and CH-53Es carried US Army Rangers and Special Operations troops in a mission to extract captured Army Private Jessica Lynch from an Iraqi hospital on 1 April 2003.[12]
WIKI.





will update soon.

FYI.
all model are made from scratch and so is the tex.

I write only what I know, or think I know if I don't have anything to add I stay quiet, listen and learn!

not sure if this helps but i came across this pic in link below, seems the "MARINES" lettering in it is a bit different font and colour than in your texture, http://www.navair.navy.mil/press_releases/documents/Photo_2_New_CH_53E_departs_depot.jpg
