Don't you mean the Viper or am I misunderstanding you? The Hornet reaction at the time was relatively positive - the increased amount of bad feedback is for the Viper, and due to the impact it has had on the Hornet.

Edit: reread your post and it makes sense - we’re agreeing.

The Falcon/Viper in VR is fantastic !


I fly BMS alot in a squad , and although the Viper in DCS is EA , we all love it .


Its EA , so we expect it to have downsides , but we still love it in DCS .


We wont be switching to DCS for official nights any time soon but every other night we fly DCS F16 .


So in short , if you have VR , its a must buy .I dont fly it non VR so not qualified to say in that area , but some guys in the squad fly it non VR and they love it just as much .


With all the answers here its a tough choice but I say buy it .

I did a takeoff with clean aircraft and did a unrestricted climb straight up like at the airshow and I was hooked, this is sooo much fun to fly!

If you like the plane just buy it and have fun. It will get updates pretty quick, in the meantime enjoy learning what is already implemented.

Based on ED's updating of the Hornet, this is a very trusting statement to make. I would expect at least another 2.5 to 3 years of development until it is near full release.

I've been enjoying the hell out of it, but I'm well aware it's pretty rough at this point. Then again, the Viper has been my favorite fighter jets as long as I can remember.

Given that I'm pretty low on the rather steep DCS learning curve, the F-16 is a good fit. I figure I can learn each of the new systems as they come online and adjust to any changes. Tbh, I am learning so many different planes and helicopters, I haven't even fully learned all of the early access F-16 systems yet. I'm sure a veteran might breeze through most of the stuff the F-16 can do without even needing a manual, since it is fairly intuitive, but a couple days ago I didn't even know what BVR, STT, or ILS meant so with a 188 page manual, the F-16 has plenty on offer for me to learn.
