Default F-16 A, B, C, MLU

I think that it will be a great idea to work on the most knowed and distributed fighter aircraft in the world. It's true there is BMS but this one is old and outdated and there is a community of fans who are dreaming of this machine because it's the figther aircraft of their countrys airforce. I hope that I'll see one day a working and flyable F-16 in DCS.

Do as you want, I'm not interested enough to pay for a F16 to use for the online free for all scene of DCS atm. Don't get me wrong I play and enjoy DCS but I'm having more fun with the 21

Not another F-16 thread...

If ED (or a 3rd party) think it's feasible to do an F-16 and is willing to do so they will do that.

Until then we can always play Falcon, which also has a great Dynamic Campaign which DCS lacks. We will get the F/A-18 Hornet soon which can do everything an F-16 can do (except Mach 2) plus the addition of naval ops. So I don't see the need for an F-16 in DCS at all! I would say more russian airplanes are more urgent.

Personnaly I don't care about a F/A-18C. The F-16 is distributed in more than 20 country and the release of a F-16 will surely make a big number of client, I'm sure about that.

Please keep the comparisons and discussions about BMS out of it.

I'll be happy with the F-18 but it won't make me dream like the F-16 does.

I'll just say that i would rather have a F-18C with carrier ops instead of a modern F-16C.

BUT in my opinion, the F-16 A or B block 15 would be more interesting to have and fly in DCS world than the modern blocks. It was never simulated (even in F4.0). Since we have the LN mig-21 and when DCS F-5 and the F-14 come out, it would be a great addition to the (growing) list of airframes from that era.

My vote would be for the F-16. Not just because it's my favorite aircraft but what it would do for the community as a whole. A lot of online squads are looking for something more updated to replace other outdated F-16 sims. I would guess that it would increase our numbers on mp servers, so on and so forth.

Either way though, an F-16 or F-18 will get me out of the SU-27, which I only fly because of it's A2A and A2G capabilities.
