NEWS! - Aircraft Updated : F-16C Block 52+ Interceptor v1.5.3 by Deltawing Simulations


UPDATE News! F16 header.jpg


The F16C Fighting Falcon by Deltawing Simulations has been one of X-Plane's quiet achievers. Released exactly 3 years ago, it has had numerous (in additions) updates and refining. Thirteen in fact over those 3 years, including the transition to X-Plane 12.


Certainly a very specialised aircraft to fly and use, but the F16 has a very dedicated following and a devotion bordering on loyalty to the aircraft and the brand.


The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is an American single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft.


The F-16 is a single-engine, highly maneuverable, supersonic, multirole tactical fighter aircraft. It is much smaller and lighter than its predecessors but uses advanced aerodynamics and avionics, including the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire (RSS/FBW) flight control system, to achieve enhanced maneuver performance. Highly agile, the F-16 was the first fighter aircraft purpose-built to pull 9-G maneuvers and can reach a maximum speed of over Mach 2. Innovations include a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, a side-mounted control stick, and a reclined seat to reduce g-force effects on the pilot. It is armed with an internal M61 Vulcan cannon in the left wing root and has multiple locations for mounting various missiles, bombs and pods. It has a thrust-to-weight ratio greater than one, providing power to climb and vertical acceleration.


V1.5.3 has three different areas that have been refined. Object Fixes, Bug Fixes and Optimisations, mostly all for better X-Plane 12 intergration... the full list is here:
