Having the F-16 in both DCS and MSFS. I'm not sure. Could even be P3D to be honest.

I guess the question is - would Mike pay for an MSFS add-on?

Some captures from Ian's Lakenheath with payware F-15 and the new payware F-35!

Dino's F-35 model is having a lot of issues playing nice with at least my setup, first problem is that is does not run on DirectX 12, there seem to be some other conflicts causing frequent CTD's but it'll get there eventually and for 30 Euro's, unbelievable models, (A,B and C all included in the purchase)!

What I found is that the basic DX12 that they are using is fitting fps quite significantly, so i reverted back to DX11.
My guess is that SU8, due out at the end of Feb, - which has been stated that it will only be a bug fix release - is to give greater effectiveness to DX12.

This is from Dino's FAQ page addressing all the CTD's that are being experienced with the model so far:
This is typically due to Direct X 12. Please understand tha DirectX 12 implementation in Microsoft Flight Simulator Sim Update 7 is still a Beta, and in particular does not support some programming technicques uses in the F-35. In general, we do not recommend using DirectX 12 – which, by the way, does not generate a significant performance improvement.
Sounds like he's not a fan lol...
