This add-on is a re-textured BiS F-35B Lightning as included with the regular Arma 2 game. The original re-skin has been made by Feint (F-35B USMC reskins).
The BiS model itself is a representation of the XF-35B Technology Demonstrator, as submitted by Lockheed in the development phase of the aircraft. The production version is quite different, so be aware that the reskins are made to approximate the F-35B, though the model is still the XF-35B.
As of now, two textures are included:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.
When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.
I have used the same set-up as Feint, as I am not a true modification maker. The aircraft is therefore limited to two re-skins and still uses the same configuration. Be aware that this might cause issues if you are using both add-ons.
The aircraft can be found in a separate Air class. The RAF version is named USMC, due to my inability to change the configuration. The RNLAF versions can be easily accessed in the same class.
This is a finished texture. The configuration of the add-on might be changed to a more convenient set-up in the future.
Credits & Thanks:
Thanks to FEINT for the permissions to use his original set-up.
