  1. Operational Flight Program (OFP) are a different thing from the Common Configuration Implementation Program (CCIP). CCIP was done over several years, so aircraft that went in at the beginning might have come out with OFP M3.4+, while aircraft that went through the CCIP update at the end of the might have come out with M5.1+. So it depends when the aircraft when through and where. Additionally on CCIP, https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3866125&postcount=459 Now, as to what seems to be modeled in DCS https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3918640&postcount=706 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=257206
  2. I did mention NWS off. But it is at any speed with increase nose loading; which include breaking, TGP installed or if they used forward stick pressure. I know because every time we got new pilots or pilot not used to flying the block 40 we get NWS pulls to the right wright up. But I was told repeatedly that we (maintainers) don't use -1 for maintenance. We could not CND write ups so here we go troubleshooting brakes and NWS, finding nothing but having to change a part no matter what, normally the NWS potentiometer. Same thing would happen with "external tank slow to feed" or on the late 1990, on PW engine with AB no light MFL. All of this if irrelevant in DCS unless this is model at some point.
  3. The real aircraft is suppose to want to drift right with NWS off as describe in the USAF manual 1F-16CJ-1, Form 15 August 2009, page 2-27, last note.
  4. This is not new, this has been going for decades. And still not credible videos that show anything reliable nor definitive in term of aircraft dogfights in that region.
  5. I hate those videos because in reality they do not show anything. That could be two Turkish F-16 training with each other or 2 Greek F-16 training with each other and any radio and sounds added. I have never seen any of those video that I believe to be real engagements.
  6. Not the reality, at least not in my first hand experience while working the F-16. Is your first hand experience on the F-16 different? Or are you basing this on second or third hand knowledge? https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=4443604&postcount=20 https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3601620&postcount=342 This conversation has happened before https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=248011 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=227363 https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=4051284&postcount=22 Here is one from 2008, that was 12 years ago https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=31107
  7. Another potentially interesting conversation mired by these post, including this very post... Oh well, I should know better by now.
  8. Wide Angle Raster (WAR), Diffractive Optics Wide Angle Collimate (WAC), Refractive Optics Also, like everything else, it depends. Some WAC HUDs can project FLIR other can't. Depends on the Pilot Display Unit (PDU) used AFAIK.
  9. USAF block 40/42 uses the Wide Angle Raster (WAR), Diffractive Optics HUD. USAF block 50/52 uses the Wide Angle Collimate (WAC), Refractive Optics HUD. But this is different on different F-16. For example some ROKAF block 52 had WAR HUD and as mention before Turkish block 40 use WAC HUD.
  10. Additionally: So, looking at the USAF circa 2007. There where units with the AAQ-28, each of the pods have their own software. Old software, was not tested for laser masking zones with the AN/ASQ-213 HTS pod installed. Because of this, units with those LITENING pods could not carry both pods at the same time due to the danger of causing laser eye damage to the pilots. Some units had the AAQ-28, but no ASQ-213. Others, vice-versa had the ASQ-213 but no AAQ-28. Some pilot and maintainer where not train to use the equipment. So the missions stayed the same. There where several unit or bases closing or changing missions or aircraft, for example Cannon AFB and Moody AFB, so their aircraft where being send to different units. Several units had a good mix of aircraft with different capabilities.
  11. Just keep in mind, if they would do a USAF 2007 block 40 after ccip, it would still not have AAQ-13. I mention this since most people asking for block 40/42 ask because they want TFR
  12. DCS block 50 is a 2007 versions
  13. If we narrow it down to just USAF block 40/42 from 2007 after CCIP upgrades with same OFP, then the radar, radios, cockpit arrangement, cockpit lightning, IFF and engines will be different.
  14. Every F-16 is different, not only by block, also by year and country. Each country decides what they want in the original delivery and their own update/upgrade program. For example, this are Israeli Block 40 Notice the enlarge intake light with additional electronic warfare antennas. D models with extended backbone. It will have several other avionics and equipment, weapons capabilities are different, etc. Other will have different HUD, example Solo turk 91-0011 was a block 40 with WAC HUD and not the WAR HUD among my other equipment and capabilities differences. Different weapons and engine subversions. There are no weapons mode, there are many software versions. F-16 without MMC used System Capability Upgrades or SCU ( these include some block 5, 10, 15, 25, 30, 32, 40, 42, 50, 52) F-16 with MMC use Operational flight programs ( these include some block 10,15,20,40,42,50,52) Depending weather it was a SCU or a OFP and which one will determine many capabilities. Other equipment that are different at different time by different countries. Radars are different, radios, EW equipment, engines, cockpit panels will be arrange differently, external and internal lightning changes over the years and by country, IFF etc. Engine for example also have different subversions. For example, there are F110-GE-100 to -100D, F100-PW-220 will have different subversions also with different improvements. Lighting also have differences, for example Greek NVS capable F-16 tend to have a orange tint to the lighting while USAF is a blueish green.
  15. This is about empty waypoints (WP)? Then I really do not understand the issue. WP/SP without Lat/Long and Alt are meaningless. There are not displayed and not used by any systems. In some software versions of the real F-16, specific WP/SP are used for specific things, than also ties into the link 16. But I'm not sure if ED will even modeled that, so it is all irrelevant until it is modeled. Well, I guess I do not have an answer to the original post nor do I see any meaning or need for it to be one way or the other. I have not read not ever heard any specific about empty WP/SP in real life. I have not seen anything describing how the look or why. Everything I seen talk about modified them, information that can be entered etc.
  16. See first screenshot I posted
  17. :lol: My ignore list is almost a members list, I have to scroll down to see all the names :D
  18. Never seen this. Maybe a date or specific missions. I just updated TTI 1.68a in openbeta ver 2.5.6.54046. I used today date and dynamic weather, jump in and DED show this: Maybe we are not looking at the same thing. Again, created a mission, started on the runway, jump in and DED page 4
  19. :D Did removing the reputation stop the PM's of "upset users"?:lol::smartass:
  20. Always been that way since the module was release with the INS. Caucasus always used N/E and NTTR use N/W.

  22. After SP: - Use TMS forward to ground stabilize the pod. - Slew the cross hair onto the target. - Fire the laser with first detent trigger to get ranging information. - TMS forward to ensure the system has target lock. - Maneuver to place the FPM center on the bomb fall line/steering line. - When the solution cue start to move downward, press and hold weapons release until ordnance has been release. -- If dropping LGB: Make a 45º (heading degrees, not bank angle) left turn follow by a right orbit to allow the TGP best view of the target. When the time to impact counter reads 10 to 8 seconds, press and hold first trigger detent to fire the laser and guide the bomb until impact. Hope that helps.

  24. So I understand: Minimum speed entry is 400KCAS or 674 feet per second. Minimum altitude entry is 400 feet AGL. The knife edge pass should be 8000 feet long, so it should take 12 seconds. You have to raise the nose 5 to 7 degrees, establish a climb before banking the aircraft 90º. If it becomes apparent the aircraft may descend below 400 feet AGL: abort, but it should not loose altitude. Is that what we are saying?
