Wiki

The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,600 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta.

    @edensk I think you’re getting bogged down in the details. I do not disagree that this build’s AoA limits are not as high as the RL jet’s. However, high performance jets are programmed to AoA, as in to not allow the pilots to exceed those limits. But pilots of high performance aircraft such as the F-16 fly as much by feel in those phases of flight...buffet (something this build actually replicates, but which you don’t mention), nose track and G loading...even wind noise...are much more obvious indicators of aircraft maneuvering performance and are actually replicated pretty well here, far better than even my builds. Those subtle cues that are sensed automatically are why an experienced with 2,000 hrs in type knows more than a newbie wingman. You may have watched a bunch of videos and played DCS, but as a retired USAF pilots who has flown more than 4,000 hrs total, including more than 500 of those hours in what the Brits call “fast jets”, I think this flight model is pretty good given SP’s limitations. And just to be sure, as I didn’t fly F-16s myself, I looked it up: Read this AFM I found on the FAS website (these guys have a little of everything): F-16 Combat Aircraft Fundamentals and you’ll see how G loading and not an AoA number is a pilot’s main reference to maximizing turn performance in the Viper. We can further discuss it if you would like.

    @ChrisPy How did he hollow it out though? The canopy shoots off during ejection but it's not the standard fuselage shape.
