RAF Lightning II / RNLAF F-35B Lightining II


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:
  • RAF:
      The texture is based on the F-35B currently in testing by the RAF. The aircraft is presumed to be operated under the designation Lightning II, though the aircraft is not yet operational.
  • RNLAF:
      The texture is based on the F-35B currently in testing by the RNLAF. The aircraft is a representation of the F-35A, which will become in use in the RNLAF in the future. The F-35A is however, not a VTOL capable aircraft.

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.

Included files:

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.
BiS for the original model.
