Give D.Va a military themed skin?

General Discussion
I was never a big fan of her skin tight jumpsuit. I actually was hoping she'd eventually get a skin that makes her look more professional in a military environment. Isn't that why she became a hero? Did she join any military branches before joining Overwatch?

well..she is and possibly never will be a member of overwatch, She is a pilot in South Korea's MEKA division, which was formed way after overwatch had fallen

None taken; I understand. Regardless, I hope she gets a skin that does fit her military background that also fits the lore.

Still, as the story progresses and the agents from OW try to rebuild it, she could be recruited.

A OW team themed D.va skin would be nice, but at this point i'll take what i can get, not that she doesn't have good skins, but most of them are "silly" or "cute" with the only kind of serious one being the Police officer.
A D.va skin that isn’t skimpy? What kind of parallel universe bull is this?!

i don't think so. the MEKA division was formed to combat the omnics during the omnic crisis, guess who was around during that time? overwatch

That would be a great mech skin. I wonder what her pilot skin would look like to match.

The MEKA division was formed because the MEKA central control system failed and South Korea needed pilots for their existing military units which were up to that point automated combat drones. While the Omniums were shut down many of them reactivated, including the one producing the Omnic Kaijuu that attack South Korea.

Also, Overwatch was shut down before she was born.
I think her default skin is her military skin since she is in mechanized division of korean army (MEKA)

I think because she's a gaming celebrity, she has perks on how she wanted her outfit and her mech to look. That's probably why it's bright pink and unprofessional looking.
I've always loved the idea of a more military based skin. I just love the more bad-!@#$ looking skins, which she has not gained many of lately.

While you said you don't like the suit, I love the suit and have always loved this concept:

Obviously the gun would have to be made to match the other cause in game models but you get the picture.

That pilot skin is amazing. It was actually kind of what I was envisioning. I don't mind if it was a jumpsuit, just as long as it had a professional appearance to it. I'm sure she wears a jumpsuit for functionality more than style.

Because christmas skins are lore
Heroes of the Storm skin.
So D.Va's Goliath skins from Heroes of the Storm?

Those kinds of skins are just festive. I don't think summer games, Chinese New Year or Halloween event skins are lore based. They're just uncanon skins.
