CV-22B Osprey - US Marine Corps Reskin - VMM-163 "Ridge Runners / Evil Eyes"

* Update: A much more accurate and clean paint job.
**Read the README file. If you already have the Osprey installed this is a very quick YTD image update for you. To make it easy I have added a folder containing the three image files that you will need to use to replace the existing files within the YTD.
***Thank you to Richie01 for his incredibly hi-res pics and to TheSigui for his pretty and dusty screenshot!

First, a huge, sincere thank you to SkylineGTRFreak for all of his amazing models for the GTA community. I deeply appreciate his time, talent, and generous kindness that he has poured into his work for all of us.

SkylineGTRFreak was very kind to provide me with a higer resolution DDS skin of the original model that I modified in Photoshop.

This is my first GTAV skin project; I still have lots to learn. Technically the USMC does not fly the CV-22 Osprey they fly another model, the MV-22 which does not have the large radar boom on the left of the nose of the vehicle. I do not know how to modele vehicles so I just did a re-skin.

Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 163 (VMM-163) is a United States Marine Corps helicopter squadron consisting of MV-22 Osprey transport tiltrotors. The squadron, known as the "Ridge Runners", is based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California and falls under the command of Marine Aircraft Group 16 (MAG-16) and the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW).
The Squadron's nickname, "Ridge Runners", was bestowed as a result of typhoon rescue and relief operations in the mountainous terrain surrounding Hagman, Japan.

This is a reskin of SkylineGTRFreak's original, amazing, CV-22B Osprey. I have only painted a new USMC skin to replace the USAF one that was in the original package.

The newly painted USMC skin files were injected into the dlc.rpf within the "add-on method" folder so if you are installing for those intalling for the first time you will have the USMC skin rather than the USAF skin that was originally included with SkylineGTRFreaks original model.

The newly painted USMC skin files were inserted into the "vehicle files" folder.

As an aside, I personally have chosen to use the replace method but have chosen to replace the Titan that spawns at Fort Zancudo. If you would like to do the same you will need to replace the Titan files in the "patchday12ng" folder and update the related file for handling. I recommend that you use a "mods" folder and that I am not responsible for any errors or crashes that you encounter. That being said, my game is stable, I have Ospreys with this skin auto-spawning where Titans used to spawn and it looks pretty awesome.

I hope that you enjoy this skin. I love the tailart and eyes at the front :P

If you have any recommendations on edits or would like another USMC skin from a different squadron please let me know in the comments section where you downloaded the file.

Installation: Read the README file.

Kind regards and happy modding.
