    Planned F-16C Systems and Payloads


    Our Viper will be an F-16C with the Common Configuration Implementation Program (CCIP) upgrade. We feel this to be the most versatile version of the F-16 with capabilities for SEAD, precision attack, close air support, and of course air-to-air. We will be taking great care though to develop a very accurate simulation of the F-16C Block 50 operated by the United States Air Force and Air National Guard circa 2007.

    For this project, we are striving to create a very authentic simulation of this particular aircraft at a specific point in time. We have no desire to create a Frankenstein's Monster that combines multiple F-16C versions from different time periods.

    Core systems of our F-16C include:
    • F-110-GE-129 turbofan engine
    • AN/APG-68(V)5 multi-mode radar
    • AN/ALR-56M Radar Warning Receiver
    • AN/ALQ-131/184 ECM pods
    • CCIP (Common Configuration Implementation Program) update
    • ALE-47 countermeasure system

    This will be a massive project, so we will separate it into two phases: Phase 1 Early Access release and then Phase 2 Product Sustainment.

    Phase 1 Early Access:
    • Color Multifunction Display (CMFD) symbology, Horizontal Situation Display (HSD) format, and Head-up Display (HUD) symbology
    • Digitally TACAN and Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicator (EHSI)
    • RWS, SAM, and ACM A/A radar modes
    • BDU-33, BDU-50LD/HD, Mk-82LDGP, Mk-82AIR, Mk-84LDGP, CBU-87 CEM, and CBU-97 SFW unguided bombs
    • 2.75” rockets LAU-68 and LAU-131
    • Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS)
    • AIM-9L/M/P/X Sidewinder
    • AIM-120B/C AMRAAM
    • M61A1 20mm cannon

    First skin will be the 55th FS at Shaw AFB.

    Phase 2 Product Sustainment:
    • TWS A/A radar mode
    • Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS)
    • Link 16 Data Link
    • A/G radar modes
    • AGM-65D/G/H/K Maverick
    • AGM-88C HARM
    • AN/ASQ-213 HARM Targeting System (HTS)
    • AN/AAQ-28(V) LITENING targeting pod
    • GBU-10, GBU-12, GBU-24A/B laser-guided bombs
    • BRU-57/A Smart Rack
    • CBU-103 CEM and CBU-105 SFW Inertially Aided Munitions (IAM)
    • GBU-31/A and GBU-38/B JDAM
    • AGM-154A and AGM-154C JSOW
    • Integration of the JHMCS with the HARM Targeting System (HTS), Link 16, and AIFF
    • Night Vision Goggles (NVG)
    • ALE-50 towed decoy

    As this project accelerates, we will be providing updates to keep you abreast of our progress to this much awaited addition to DCS World.
