Nozzle position, speed brake deployment, acceleration at altitude (with stores), and G tolerance have all been updated recently.

In fact I'm pretty sure you can pull 8Gs forever in the F-16 now...

The 5 min value is to cool down the aftercooler. It PROBABLY isn't modeled in DCS at all, or if so, isn't accurate. The RL aircraft doesn't report (or even measure) the aftercooler temp, which might...
