F-35B Lightning II (VTOL)


-working gauges (well, only the roll indicator since the rest isn't analog)
-new "burned" areas after destruction (instead of being black everywhere)

-Initial release

It has been requested quite often and here it is: The latest fighter jet of the US in the VTOL configuration. All VTOL hatches and engines work, giving it a nice and realistic look. You can open the internal weapon bays with a trainer, since I have made them as car doors. Inside are 2 JDAM bombs and 4 AMRAAMs on external hardpoints, as well as 2 Sidewinders.

The glass can be shattered by bullets, bulletholes are visible, model is dirt mapped and includes 3 different skins (liveries).

I know that the MG position is not like in real life, but that's because the F-35B does not have an internal MG and has to carry an underbelly gunpod, which looks ugly imo.

The afterburner engine effect moves together with the VTOL thruster as well.

Original model converted from Battlefield 3

Full credits in the Read Me file.

This will probably be the last mod for now, since my trial ZM3 runs out tomorrow.
Like I have said before, I'm really eager to release more aircraft (military/civillian), helicopters and military vehicles. If you like my work and want to see more, please show your support donating. It helps me affording the things I need to continue modding (ZM3, model files, etc)

And thanks alot for the support I have recieved already :)

(And you could keep up with my YT channel to see WIP videos of upcoming mods)

    @SkylineGTRFreak This is excellence! Any chance you could convert your Stealth E.D.I. you made for GTA SA to GTA V? that would be sick as hell!

    @5dmc1 The quality isn't really that great. I'm afraid it would look strange in V.

    The plane looks super cool man, and I like the animations but I can't change the liveries in my game, do you know how to fix this?
