AG6: Drag Chute
AG7: Open Radome
Trim: Trim
VTOL: None

Features

-270+ Degree Field of View from Cockpit

-Custom and Accurate Weapons

-Working Fly-By-Wire

-1st unstable F-16 (only slightly unstable to have good flight performance)

-Realistic Performance and Speeds

-Realistic Tailcodes and Insignia (457th Fighter Squadron Because I'm from DFW)

-Freefall and Guided modes on the GBU-39s

-The tails and wings unfold as well on the GBU-39s (No funky trees used)

Weapons

Air-to-Air

-2x AIM-9X Sidewinder Range: 0-5mi
-2x AIM-120C AMRAAM
Range: Forgot-30 Miles-ish

Air-to-Ground

-8x GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb Range: 1-6.8 mi
-2x APKWS Guided Rocket Pods Range: 1.1-6.8 Mi

Pods

-AN/ALQ-184
-LANTRN Targeting Pod

Notes

-When launching the GBU-39s in the guided mode, they will only hit their target if there is a feasible target solution. That means don't launch them 5 miles away when you are 5 feet AGL. Since the missiles have little thrust, it will only keep the speed up of the bomb and guide it (It's not magic). Use advanced targeting to get it the trajectory reasonable and it will glide right into the target.
-I know AG2 doesn't really do much but I wanted some flap modes
-Glides a little right on takeoff (Not bad though)
-APKWS has only a ground mode (Sorry)
-GBU-39 shrapnel flies EVERYWHERE so stay well above the target zone
-AIM weapons have a realistic hit prob. so it won't hit every time

Big Thanks to @ChiChiWerx for testing and feedback along with @Sled Driver a bit and everyone else who may have helped and I forgot lol.

    Beautiful build with a good flight model. It flies similarly to the fast jets I’ve flown IRL. The fly by wire is interesting, and the weapons are probably the best part, especially the SDBs. You kept the great cockpit view, just like the RL jet...nice work!

    Plus, this is an F-16, which everyone loves, but there are a lot of F-16s out there on the site. Plus, it's grey, which also conspires against upvotes.

    @ChisP the fact of the matter is that if you have more followers, you get more upvotes, whether your build is actually any good or not. The good thing is that the more good builds you make, the more followers you will get, and so on and so on. Look at BogdanX, he builds some great aircraft consistently and has a ton of followers for it, but it took awhile for him to get there...we discuss this all the time in my Discord group and can't believe the disparity sometimes. Screenshots, working cockpits and the fact that many upvote based purely on the post, without actually flying the build, all conspire to keep good builders down. But shoddy builders very rarely rise to Bog's level. If you stick with it...and you only have 5,500 pts., you'll develop even more skills and gain more followers and get more points, on and on. It just takes time, it really does. I myself only have two builds that have broken 100 upvotes, the F-100 and the EF132. Some builds that weren't that hard (USAF Insignia Pack) got far more points than other builds I thought were much, much better. There's no rhyme or reason sometimes, but your long term reputation is really based on the quality of your builds as opposed to just one ultra successful build or a lot of crap builds. You're going in the correct direction and, again, 88 upvotes isn't bad, not at all. My F-105 only has 88 upvotes and I have far, far more followers, so you're not doing badly at all at this stage!

    @ChiChiWerx yeah but why do all these random people like reignsupreme get 150-300 upvotes on something that looks lumpy, not smooth, or not fully functional. Is it just because people are plat? randomusername got 97 upvotes on her jet that is ahead of mine. It doesn't even have custom surfaces and prob took her an hour. This took me 2 months! kinda upset if you couldn't tell lol.

    88 upvotes is very good. My builds only rarely break 100.

    I'm so sad this doesn't work on mobile I love this plane second favorite in my favorite jet planes after the f22, but I tried to spawn it and it freaked out and was super laggy if you can find a way to limit the part count I would love to fly this beautiful craft
