Yeah that's what I thought too until I tested it out. You can only see stars in the top 30 degs from zenith. As long as the sun is up, the horizon stays opaque blue regardless of the time of day. ...

Afterburner and Vulcan Cannon needs audible bass

The subwoofer portion of the F-16 afterburner sound profile is very subtle compared to the F/A-18 Hornet. The Hornet can be felt as an actual "kick" from bass shakers, but the F-16 afterburner bass...

The no-tracer rounds are default for several mission loadouts that start in the air. This would be more feasible if we had radar gun locks.

As accurate as possible for A/A or A/G? because when even 1 jet is modified for security reasons, you can only have 1 or the other, but not both.

Yeah, I think there are 2 mutually inconsistent counter narratives here that are holding the F-16 back:

If it can't track the F-14 then it's definitely not a radar cross section issue. I was doing the JF-17 BVR mission that spawns random bandit types at around 65nm and noticed that some jets seemed...

You're starting the clock rather late in the evergy bleeding turn, so of course you get a longer time. The video states the "9g turn starts at t = 0:34."However we can only tell the turn by the...

Wow, that's an F-16 pulling ~12 second 360 degree turn. Whereas the shortest 360 turn time we can get in DCS with clean wings on bingo fuel is closer to 20 seconds. Not even close. :/
