    Why is the DED not listed at all? Are there no plans to fully simulate the DED?

      How did ED manage to develop the F-16 so quickly in comparison to the f/a-18

        Are there any plans to include a virtual pilot for the Viper?

        This adds so much immersion whilst flying a module in VR, and the F18 Hornet has a great one which looks really stunning in VR.

          Is there anything more you can share at this point regarding Ground Radar? Any screenshots available on what the scope screen will look like?

            (probably not easily explained quickly, but this is what I am interested in reading about

            Q: How is the FBW-based PFM developed from publicly available data to something that is actually so close to reality that a Pilot/SME is able to validate it and sign off on?

              I was surprised about how fast the development of the F-16 has progressed and have two questions regarding that subject.
              1. When implementing something like the RWS radar mode into the F-16, how much of that code is able to be transferred straight from the F/A-18C into the F-16C, and how much has to be modified/rewritten completely?
              2. Considering the incredible pace with which the F-16 was developed, can we expect a similar pacing with future modules or was this a one time thing, a special set of circumstances due to the similarities between the F/A-18C and the F-16C that probably won't get repeated?

                Can you talk a little bit about the development of the flight model:

                1. The FLCS for the F-16 had to be constructed from the ground-up. How was that process?

                2. There's a lot of NASA technical papers that provide good research into the flight characteristics of the F-16 were any of these used?

                  F-16 is known for its immense amounts of variants and modifications is there ever going to be DLC's for F-16 that simulate different F-16's? ( i.e Block 40 Night Falcon, Block 30 )

                    How much common codebase do the Viper and Hornet have? Will developing systems and weapons for both be seamless and much easier as EA development continues? Can this common base also be aplied to future fixed-wing products like the F-4E?

                      Will the Viper come with preset keybinds for the Thrustmaster Warthog?

                          It has been stated numerous times that new ED modules indirectly fund further development of the base sim. Besides the AG radar technology that is being developed for the F-16/18 projects, are there any other technologies that improve DCS overall that are directly tied to the F-16 development project?

                            Will there be 'stick' and 'throttle' control mapping sections with all the actual birds stick and throttle controls that should be mapped as such listed? Super handy.

                            Will landing gear and such have a control mapping for 'down/else up' control? Handy for those of us using throttle quadrants and such for extra axis.

                                For us who don't have cool detents on our throttles, is there any plans to add a similar feature the hornet has (the finger lift to after burner) that'll prevent me from accidently hitting the burner when I'm trying to only go to full mil?

                                Thanks

                                  How many man hours are put into the development of a complex module like the Viper, and what is the approximate monetary cost?

                                    Will campaigns be released with the Viper and what can we expect in the future for campaigns?
