F-35 Lightning II Version 2.30 (Limited Introduction)
Here is the much awaited F-35 update for FSX:Acceleration which also supports the Tacpack (version 18.104.22.168 or later required).
For the moment, it will only be available on this blog - in order to check it works correctly. Most likely there will be bandwith issues with Google Drive... anyway, as soon as it is confirmed that it works as it should, it will be uploaded at the usual repositories too.
