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 It's true there is BMS but this one is old and outdated and there is a community of fans who are dreaming of this machine because it's the figther aircraft of their countrys airforce.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.

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.

Funny it seems this subject pops up about once a month.

If ED (or a 3rd party) KNOW people are interested in an F-16 perhaps it will influence decisions regarding their next projects. Sitting and quietly wishing for something is pointless.

Falcon is dated. yes it has a Dynamic Campaign, but in all my years of playing Falcon I never found the need or desire to play a campaign ALLLL the way through to the end. Unlike DCS Setting BMS up is a P.I.T.A. I love it when people tell me "There are all sorts of videos on You tube explaining how to set it up correctly..." Really? I shouldn't have to watch 2-3 you tube tutorials just to set my game up.

Yes we're gettin the F/A-18 Hornet soon which can do everything an F-16 can do (except Mach 2) plus the addition of naval ops...But some people aren't interested in Carrier Ops...It'll be interesting but I'd pay full price for an F-16 NOW...I'll never buy the F-18 unless its on sale.

So while YOU don't see the need for an F-16 in DCS at all, Others do. In MY opinion, there are more than enough Russian Airplanes.

I actually believe the reason there is so much resistance to a DCS level F-16 is the fact its far more capable than any of the Russian fighters currently in the sim.

But time will tell...

Default F16? Oh Yeah!

Well, if I may be blunt, How come that there is so much resistance for the F16 in DCS?
What's the REAL reason WHY, there is no F16 in the planning?
From a marketing point of view: When you research the flight sim market.
There is definitely a demand for an DCS F16, so that's a no brainer.
Develop an F16, create a poll for only 2 versions, (Don't make it to hard on yourself)
make an announcement, buyers will flock to the release date, easy money!

Btw, It you want Red Flag to be as real as possible....
what's a Red Flag campaign without F16's?

thats exactly what I have been saying in other threads...Red flag without F-16?¿?¿?¿?...cmon!!!

And about the "F-18 can do all an F-16 can do" argument well, for that same reasoning all planes can "fly" so why more than one plane???

I want an F-16 because it IS an F-16!!!

It's always baffled me too. Anyone who's completely honest about wanting a top-notch realistic military flight sim with 4th-gen fighters is forced to acknowledge how essential an F-16 module is in accomplishing that. For the most part I think it's just that the people with a personal agenda that puts the F-16 as a lower priority are louder about it than the rest. edited. If we live long enough, I'm sure we'll see a DCS: F-16C. It's just an absolute necessity in the subject matter which DCS gives the most attention and whether it's ED or 3rd party, someone is going to do it. We know they have the information to make it, we know it will instantly be one of the most popular modules (if not the most popular outright), there's too much common sense involved that's supports the idea. My bet is once the F/A-18C is out with its A/G radar and the other basic foundations of multirole airflcraft, an F-16 announcement won't be too far behind. Everyone here who wants to tear down the F-16 in the hopes of a MiG-31 or something will just have to live with it.
