Description


THIS MOD IS A WORK IN PROGRESS!

INTRODUCTION
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters. The fifth-generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground-attack and air-superiority missions. Compared to the F-35A, the F-35C carrier variant features larger wings with foldable wingtip sections, larger wing and tail control surfaces for improved low-speed control, stronger landing gear for the stresses of carrier arrested landings, a twin-wheel nose gear, and a stronger tailhook for use with carrier arrestor cables. The larger wing area allows for decreased landing speed while increasing both range and payload.

This mod was originally made by Olli Koskelainen and released as the FC-37 Thunder mod. My goal with this project is to restore the mod to Jets DLC standards and attempt to create a realistic F-35C mod within Arma 3 limitations. I am releasing the mod in its current state which I consider an early build, it is functional but a lot of things require further polishing such as wheel physics, lighting, cockpit features, flight model, weapon parameters and much more. If you find any bugs please do report them via steam comments or discussion thread.

You lock them as if they are missiles. Pretty sure they can also be laser guided but its been a while since i used them

with regards t the ordnance that the f35 will have these are currently in development https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPEAR_3 which will give an AGM, also in development is the HARM missile. as we dont have these modelled yet the closest thing to them would be the vanilla Mavericks and harm missle. could these two vanilla weapons be able to be added please. Thank you.

Hello Laroche, thank you for the time you have put into thios mod. a just a small ask. would it be possible to match the speed with the actual figures (The F-35 has a maximum speed of over Mach 1.6.) also would it be possible to implement all of the vanilla weapons?. Thank you
