Nice, yeah that illustration shows how to take advantage of a smaller radius at max STR in a horizontal turn fight, all else being equal. What it doesn't show due to its two dimensional nature is...

Aha, I wonder why it's industry std. to measure load factors and not rate then.. the answer is pretty obvious, but I'll keep you guessing, it's quite amusing.

The main issues I've noted in the DCS F-16 FM so far:

- too low a G-onset rate (still trying to figure out the exact onset rate to be expected, but 9...

2 deg/sec might seem like a small difference to you, but it becomes quite noticable in a dogfight between pilots of equal skill. The F-14 currently holds about a 2 deg/sec advantage over the Hornet,...

Yes, 19.4 deg/sec, that's 0.2 deg/sec more than the GAO report.

In short you just confirmed what I've already said, the Hornet is slightly overperforming atm, which when put together with the fact...

The GAO report posted earlier, it gave a 19.2 deg/sec max STR @ SL & 12.3 deg/sec STR at 15 kft for an F/A-18C epe w/ 2x AIM9 + 2xAIM120 & 60% fuel. That means a clean jet without pylons, just the...

Pilot head bobbing

I'm not the one making any assumptions here, the source has always been the actual Blk.50/52 performance charts (HAF manual), and here we see the clean 22,000 lbs F-16C Blk.50/52 achieve a 21.7...

Doesn't matter that I used SL, the disparity stays the same at 15 kft as neither aircraft loses any engine performance compared with each other up to that altitude.

As for the G-limit override, I...

The MiG-29A was supposedly a real hot rod, but IIRC it was slightly beaten by the F-16 above 400 kts or so in terms of rate, but better below that and able to pull higher AoA.

It's also a total...

The pilot behind those words is C.W. Lemoine, callsign Mover, and I have to say physics kinda supports him.

F-4E is definitely the version I'd prefer, it's just more relevant to DCS IMHO, esp. since we've got the post vietnam MiG-21Bis as well.

*bump*

Aircraft still outclimbs everything by getting a very abnormal boost to performance with altitude.

It's an obvious thrust issue.
