The F-16 got added to our approved combat aircraft this week.
Here is a rundown of some features you can expect:
No anti-cheat messages. Instead it prevents you from cheating or doing mistakes. :)
One of the most advanced aircraft aerodynamics and fly-by-wire in Flightgear. Based on real data and control diagrams.
So far only 3 working armaments, but more is coming. (AIM 9L/7F/120B)
Many variants to choose from. They differ in engine, aerodynamics and liveries.
B-scope radar display on the MFD(s). The aspect of your selected target will be show in yellow. Shows DLZ when missile tracking a target.
Radar Warning Reciever (RWR), that works by sorting the threat to you: Close to center: high threat Close to edge: threat Diamond: highest threat Upper semicircle: new threat (750Hz tone) Full blinking circle: hostile launch (2000Hz tone) Enemies can trick the RWR by turning radar and transponder off. Use Link 16 to define your wingmen, so they don't show up on RWR. This mock picture of the RWR gives an idea. Don't expect AI to be classed as high threat though when you fly:
Not done yet: Graphics of missiles flying Auto-pilot Systems wise (electric, fuel, cockpit controls), its still a very simple plane. But fun to fly.
At the moment we are like 4-5 people working on it, so it evolves fast, don't miss out, fly the Falcon today. :)
