Now Also Available: the perfect companion to the F-35 – America-Class LHA Ships for MSFS and Ford-Class Carriers for MSFS, giving you a realistic place to operate these planes from.

The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is an American family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole combat aircraft that is intended to perform both air superiority and strike missions.

It is also able to provide electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities.

The aircraft has three main variants: the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) F-35A, the short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) F-35B, and the carrier-based (CV/CATOBAR) F-35C.

Key features of this rendition for Microsoft Flight Simulator are:

    • Detailed representation of the three variants of the aircraft, showcasing individual differences and commonalities
    • Detailed external visual model and cockpit, based on extensive research
    • Realistic pilot interface through the Primary Control Display (PCD) based on real world simulators
    • Liveries for all the air forces and services that are currently flying the F-35
    • Realistic flight dynamics based on publicly available data
  • STOVL capabilities for the F-35B
  • Carrier capabilities for the F-35C (special code to perform assisted takeoff and landing from any static surface)
  • Sound package based on real world recordings


The package only depicts the Vehicle Systems and some essential Mission Systems. The following mission systems are NOT simulated:

  • DAS
  • RWR
  • Sensor fusion

Minimum Requirements

  • CPU: 4 cores, 3.0 GHz or better
  • GPU: Nvidia 1060 or better, with at least 4 GB dedicated video memory

2 reviews for IndiaFoxtEcho – F-35 Lightning II for MSFS

  1. Reid Rowan (verified owner)

    The most fun you can have in MSFS.

  2. Mike Wigley (verified owner)

    Great Aircraft, 3 Variants A, B and C and various Liveries. A/C handles well and the textures and modeling are spot on, no impact on FPS with a reasonable PC, obviously its not as functional as a DCS plane but still for a classified AC its still quite detailed. Sound is a little quiet but Developer is aware and set it to please everyone, there is an update coming 14.01.22 and India FoxtEcho provides good support for their AC’s, its also very reasonably priced.
