  1. Ok, I found it on the -34. The delay is only there if wing tank are loaded with A2G weapons on station 3 and 7. If there are wing tank loaded with A2G weapons loaded, station 6 is delayed, but it does not say for how long. It could be milliseconds. The same delay happens in selective jettison with same stores selected. So, in selective jettison wing tank with A2G weapons on station 3 and 7, there is a delay on station 6, but it does not say for how long.
  2. Using the USAF manual ( since the Greek manual is not relevant) I do not see any indication of a delayed. Do you have another source that is relevant to the F-16C versions we have in DCS?
  3. Side Stick Controller
  4. Like many other switches in the cockpit, this has not function on the USAF F-16C block 50. This switch only applies to F100-PW-200 and F100-PW-220/220E. Has no effect on F100-PW-229 and all GE engines AFAIK. On the engine that it works ( as previously mention) the engine have to be at max AB and speed must be above mach 1.1 for it to work. It can only be used for 6 minute at a time and the engine must be overhaul if it has been used for over 60 minutes ( at 6 minutes or less increments). If used over 6 minutes, things will likely start melting.
  5. I have never heard if this. Where do you get this from? What is consider a "small angle" 5 degrees, 10 degrees? How does the flight computer know the angle of the speed brakes since there is no potentiometer like on all other surfaces? There are two plungers IIRC, one tells the system the speed brakes are open more that 2 degrees, the other that they are open more that 43 degrees. How does it tell angle in between?
  6. With payload, it will depend on the payload. Without any payload: 800 knots up to 30,000 feet. Above that, mach 2.5. To be clear, it does not mean you will get this speed, but you should not exceed this speed. Maximum speed in real life will be a bit different on every aircraft. I do not mean block, but each individual aircraft. Some engines are a bit better that others, etc.
  7. There are many differences between Polish F-16C block 52+ and other F-16, but: JFS shuts off at :48 seconds ( this indicates 50% engine RPM) lights comes on at :52 seconds
  8. This conversation again? search the forums, there is already several arguments against and for this. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=212955 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=205630 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=135193 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=166719 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=208757 just to mention a few
  9. Lets try this video that show USAF F-16C block 50 JFS cuts off at 3:01, light on at 3:03 or this one JFS cuts off at 2:59, light come on at 3:01 Biggest give away about engine RPM is the JFS cut off, this should happen around 50%. The stand by generator should come online by 58%. So you can see on this examples how JFS cuts off, and a few seconds later lights come on.
  10. 9 year I have been saying this. During the climb, what was the G? If it was 1g, the DFLCC is working as I understand it in the F-16, I can't speak for the mirage system. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=140940 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=211595 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=246228 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=248056 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=251530 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=196974
  11. Not possible to do in F-16.They all need main/standby/ground power.
  12. Not likely but pilots could. On the right side of the cockpit, almost behind the seat, next to DTU, there is "Map case". Also left and right rear most panels on the cockpit have a storage area for terminal information books or additional maps. I'm sure now a day they just carry a tablet with all require info but back in the early 2000 and before they had paper copy back ups in the pit.
  13. That article is written in ignorance and is one of many spreading misconceptions. If ED want to add this to DCS, more power to them, but don't be fool by bad written articles. What would happen if this is ever attempted on a real life F-16, the landing gear would collapse, more than than likely the tension strut will rip out of the bulkhead ( this happened in the 555th FS while TDY on Decimomannu AB in the early 2000, and the aircraft was just park). Also the tire will burst and the tail hook will rip out if the pivot point or the "shoe" will rip off the hook. The tail hook on a F-16 is only 1/4" of a inch (6.35mm) thick and it can barely handle the emergency systems on the runway, even tho those systems have a lot longer slow down that the carrier ones.
  14. Why would you like a GBU-27? GBU-27 (all subverions) is a GBU 24 with smaller front fins and GBU-10 fins on the back so it can fit in the F-117 bay. With smaller fins, guidance was not as good as GBU-24. Both the 24 and 27 could be used with different bomb bodies like a MK-84 or a BLU-117 (just to mention a few). Just wondering why would you like a GBU-27?

    f-16 bugs

    Reporting this way will help the team duplicate the bugs and correct them.
  16. Yes the canopy should fire. Not sure if the canopy would travel upward or more back and the pilot could suffer burns from the rockets. On average, on the ground at zero speed, the canopy tends to eject up, aft and to the left. The seat should not fire until the canopy is far away enough to pull the lanyards activating the seat. It works the same on both single seat and two-seaters. This is a B model, but note how it flip up aft and to the left. Is truly amazing all the things that happens in less than a second. eY9KW0nxRSg

  18. Everyone is going in circles. Can we all agree you won't change the mind of the other side?
  19. Is like that for every release, wait for the P-47 you will see it also
  20. I think the easiest fix for that in DCS would be for the pilot to die of this is attempted. In RL there are hundreds of variables and I do not think anybody has ever tried, not AFAIK. The rockets on the canopy could burn the pilot, The canopy may not separate properly. The canopy may travel in weird way if jettison like that. The seat should not fire until the canopy has travel far way enough to pull the lanyard that it attach to it, activating the seat. Here you can see how it works Note the lanyard on the canopy as it separated form the cockpit
  21. But the pods where and are used differently in every aircraft. For example, circa 2008, there where 3 version of the AN/AAQ-28 and 2 software version on the F-16 programs. Basically, 6 different version of the pod with different weights, HOTAS, symbology and capabilities.
  22. Training missile, note the blue bands painted on them. ( I was not sure if you where joking about that or if that is what you meant when you wrote you where way off)
