For fans of military bases, this is an absolute must-have!
The Tyndall Air Force Base is located in the Bay County area of the Gulf of Mexico, near Florida Panhandle. This is an important part of the local area and community and as such has been a major force of good both for the economy and the areas overall prestige. It’s based just 12 miles east of Panama City, too, making it very easy to reach for pilots.
If you’ve always wanted to go there then this brilliant take on it should give you all that you were looking for.
Given it’s based in a part of the world with emerald waters and stunning sandy beaches, you’ll find that the region around you and the general climate is one of the positivity and tranquil feeling. It’s a popular tourist destination, as well, so you can easily see that the location is pretty thriving.
The air base, though, is well looked after and this mod does a good job of presenting that fairly and accurately. Indeed, the air base is also home to the brilliant 325th Fighter Wing HQ and also plays a major role for the 1st Air Force, 53rd Weapons Evaluation Group and also the 601st Air Operations Center.
In the package, you will get access to major features and changes which include;
The main base itself with two runways and night lighting included for improved visibility as you fly. This makes the whole airport feel more alive, and the addition of the twin runways does a great job of helping you get in and out of the airport without any delays.
The drone strip and the Red Horse training facility are included to the East, which are also big parts of the AFB now. It looks wonderful to fly beyond and will give you a genuine appreciation of the aircraft base and what it tends to have included.
Also, F-22A Raptors, QF-4 Phantoms and QF-16s all fyl from here. They populate the skies above and the nearby area which looks excellent and gives the AFB another lease of life that many mods like this fail to include.
However, the AI aircraft in the region are not able to be controlled and also may have complications if you are using DX10 Preview to release the products.
If you are interested in helping the war heroes of the UK and US, then please buy this product. Team SDB donates a fair amount of the earnings from all products purchased to both the Wounded Warriors and the Help for Heroes foundations. This is a vital cause and if you wish to help, simply purchase this mod from here.

I work at Tyndall AFB with the drone program. The layout of the base is pretty much on the mark but lacks some detail. The droneway parking ramp doesn't have stadium lights as shown, wish we did. All but one light is on the hangar for a total of 5. The main base ramp has sun shelters for the planes not shown + many more buildings are required. When flying offbase I noticed the new Panama City beach airport (ECP) is missing now but the old airport is there. The old one is now a housing area.
I RUN ACCELERATION ON W7 THE SDB SOFTWARE DOES NOT LOAD AS PER INSTRUCTIONS BUT I MANAGE A VARIATION BUT. THE ARRESTING WIRE DOES NOT ACTIVATE. THE FIRE TRUCK DOES NOT ATTEND THE FIRE. THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER NOT FOUND. IS THIS AN OP SYSTEM PROBLEM.? DAVID
