    F-15E?

    I don't recall seeing any pictures (never saw any in real life as I am not in the US) of the F-15E without its CFT, there is too much advantages as the plane is mainly made for bombing and attacking rather than fighting anyway, so they don't need the additional maneuverability or thrust to weight, the CFT also give additional pylons and they are really aerodynamic, meaning turn one of the best dogfighter into a fierce strike aircraft, and nowadays there are almost no dogfights, at least for the US, so they don't need that, mainly considering that anyway they have the F-22 if they need to reall
  2. Well it make perfect sense then. It basically act the opposite way a ground effect vehicle (like the Ekranoplan) work. Here is a video to show and explain it a little : First you have to understand than an aircraft with wings and tailplane or canard and wing is controlling its pitch attitude by changing the balance of lift between the wings and the tail/canard. A self stable ground effect vehicles (GEV) work in a really simple principle, the tailplane is higher than the main wings and is made to provide lift. What happen is when the GEV get closer to the ground, the main wing becau
  3. I don't have time to search it myself but if you can't find anything it might endup like the A10C where this is too classified and they basically did not implement it.
  4. Thanks, interesting informations, so basically it work like the DCS Russian system of flight director + the ILS lines, the Space Shuttle also had a flight director system on its hud :pilotfly::thumbup: This indicate how accurate and better than only ILS lines this is as the Shuttle can't really have the luxury to over compensate or go around. Can't wait to try this !
  5. Great summary, also maybe rolling the aircraft "help" because roll always create a little yaw movement and the engine centrifugal force is also a factor, so this may happen only at certain regimes.
  6. This is both because of the aerodynamic and loadout, both are always linked together, weight distribution determine what goes in front and aerodynamic what move, how it move and what goes on the back (well this is an over simplification of course). But the F-16 in this video is probably 100% the same as the regular on the aerodynamic aspect, only the payload itself make it different, and I think they simply put regular pod, tanks and AMRAAM rather than modified ones, so the real unknown is more about the flight computer, but if the one that we will have in DCS have a flight computer patch for
  7. Well I don't know how they code their flight model, but I really don't think they code specific behavior, but rather make a realistic aerodynamic representation of the aircraft which end-up "automatically" reproducing those behaviors because of the coded data of lift, drag, stall angle, rudder masked from airflow at certain angle loosing efficiency etc And in this case my question is really, will the flight model be accurate enough to reproduce such characteristics. Any behaviors caused by weight change over the normal should be actually reproducible in the flight sim if we put similar weigh
  8. Wait, did I posted it on Wishlist or was it moved there ? Well, we know for sure the F-16 will have realistic flight model, no new aircraft since LOMAC got released with simplified flight model (flying on rail as you said it), since LockOn: Flaming Cliffs introduced the SU-25T with advanced flight model, no new aircraft had it after (except sub variants of existing LOMAC aircraft I think), but this doesn't mean that our F-16C Blk 50 won't have a flight computer system to prevent this or that the flight model will be actually accurate enough to model it, which is why I asking. And we
  9. I have seen this video a long long time ago, this is an F-16 with asymmetric missile payload in certain conditions. I don't know if the F-16 we will have in DCS have a software patch for this behavior or not, and if not, would the flight model be able to reproduce such behavior ?
  10. Interesting infos and nice details about the engine, good to know. I guess the post on my link isn't really good for an Engineering stand point but it should probably suffice to give a basic idea of the cockpit layout and features I guess.
  11. I was browsing to find ILS related stuff about the F-16 and I found this : https://www.quora.com/What-do-all-of-the-controls-in-an-F16-fighter-jets-cockpit-do A guy posted a long and detailed description of the F-16C block 50 cockpit, well I don't think there is any sencible informations as the DCS manual will probably be more detailled, but I hope I won't have a wild encounter with the rule 1.16. So for those who haven't flown on that other F-16 sim that shall not be named here and don't want to read through the flight manual (which I guess isn't really reader friendly as it is more to con
  12. Nice ! To be honest I did not bother to check it, first because I don't know the Viper enough to identify any models, and second because this wasn't easy enough to find a cockpit picture where the ADI is visible, and I can't imagine an early model having ILS capability which is removed on latter models, so I imagine any models are good enough for this purpose. Well I didn't know that, I haven't found any hud landing video where the ILS was in use then. Nice to know, since I'll surely buy the Viper, I like the idea that ILS approach can be done through the hud.
  13. Well if you look at the WIP screenshots of the F-16C https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/screenshots/1201/ You can see the ADI have the two yellow lines which are ILS glide slope and localizer indicators, I guess they stay visible because the aircraft is still WIP, and I think only ILS capable aircraft do have them. Those are visible in the real world one too when it is cold and dark : But they aren't in flight though, hence why I think they are visible on the DCS one in flight because it is still WIP. Here is an example of a running F-16 without those lines
  14. He probably just lied. And why ? The 2000D is a great aircraft, better than the C as more modern. I mean we both have : A-10A, A-10C SU-25A, SU-25T Fw 190 A-8, Fw 190 D-9 And soon F-15C, F-15E And technically the Huey and the Cobra are somewhat "the same" Having different variant isn't bad at all. But again I seriously doubt there is any truth behind that.
