Dear pilots, we are happy to announce you big DCS: I-16 update!

It will include:
- heating physics (cylinder and oil heating and cooling were fixed)
- pilot and parachute shapes (we've created correct model for walking after flying)
- high speed level flight tweak (no need to handle stick and pedals to maintain it anymore)
- motor shutdown process (much faster now)
- oil radiator animation added on external model
- kneeboard enabled
- fuel meter scale increased
- gunsight and cockpit lighting tweak






Also, we are finishing main manual, learning missions - WIP. So, we are on the way to release.
Thank you for your patience!

Great news, I really missed having more contact with the developer of this beautiful and nice aircraft. I'm looking forward to having an operable kneeboard, as currently I have to use a Mod (by @Tempest ) .. please, if you can, enable the radio so we can contact ATC when landing 👍


Best regards

Excellent, it is such a nice aircraft - one of a few with 100% rating on Steam!


Glad to know training missions are coming. Please add more Quickstart and Single missions as well, and a campaign!

Great news .

This module felt very finished at release, but enhancements are always welcomed.

I think this module is underrated by the community - but I can highly recommend it.

The I-16 has the most beautifully artistic cockpit in DCS.    The listed updates you are providing will be very much appreciated!

Many thanks for the update Plexus .


There is already an Excellent English Cockpit Quartermaster created - Since you are doing an I-16 Update you can save a few hours by adding his MOD to the Update.

The I-16 is your Project so it is your choice. 

I-16 English Cockpit MOD created by Quartermaster!

(Very nice includes all labels and Knots Airspeed)

In our next update, we have added drop tanks, which by as many as 186 liters expand Rata’s flight capabilities and number of mechanical levers and cables in the cab.

We also made some bug fixes and improvements to the cockpit textures.







We hope that our updates will finally be available in the next DCS update.
