These textures are for the MSFS2020 Default Savage Cub. It represents the Piper L-4 Grasshopper “Rosie the Rocketer”, piloted by Maj. Charles “Bazooka Charlie” Carpenter, who, disgusted with constantly being unable to do anything about tanks that he found as he was spotting for artillery in Europe during WWII, mounted six bazooka rocket launchers on his little Piper, and was eventually credited with eliminating six enemy tanks and several armored cars, and started a trend among his fellow Grasshopper compatriots.
The actual plane he flew made it through WWII, passed through several people’s hands and was recently purchased by the Collings Foundation and has now been fully restored to flying condition. I’ve included a couple of pictures of it from an event I attended recently.
There are actually two packages associated with this install. The texture set for Rosie the Rocketer, and a new eye location to raise the head of the view to it’s proper height above the instrument panel. I also added the co-pilot and cargo positions to the Weight & Balance form (to actually remove the co-pilot model, you’ll have to edit the aircraft.cfg file and comment the co-pilot out). To install this texture set, just drag and drop the two package directories in the zip file into your Community folder.
