DCS F-16 Viper Mini Updates and Discussion

Hi Wes, although the presentation and some of the functions are a bit different for TWS in the Hornet and Viper, the underlying function remains quite similar. As such, it is more efficient for us to develop TWS for both aircraft at the same time and roll it out for both in the same time period.

The same is true for the AG radar and a few other systems like GPS-weapons LARs.



Targeting pod at launch! F YEA!


Thanks for the info Matt!

The only question now is what do I ask for for Christmas?

The other day you were begging for a MQ-9 Reaper. 120kts at 35,000ft!

That’s more of a Christmas + Birthday combined present…and I’d still have to buy a runway.

Slingshot, plebeian.


Catapult, actually. Still has landing gear though.

What you really want is a Scan Eagle or Blackjack.

Naw, see the string by the soldier’s feet? SPC Genius there knew the catapult was busted but never told the SSGT and just made a giant sling with some 550 cord, told the LT it was good to go, and let 'er rip!

On the other hand, SPC Genius won’t win a skating award because he got roped into doing it to begin with.


I can’t wait for this!!! I’m going to have soo much fun flying my Viper!!!

And they’re listening!
“10- Dogfight switch is underway now and associated after and forward (MRM) functions.”

Now if someone can paint the Toledo Stingers tail-art for me…


I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited for the paint kit (hopefully soon in the future). I’d like to try some ideas my self and I’m sure the community will blow us all away with some amazing paints.

The newer updates are really pushing me to buy this bird while it’s still in EA…but I’m still on the fence. I feel like with my 4-ish years on BMS 4.32 I might end up unfairly comparing it.


Well, I’ll let you know how it compares to BMS 4.34. Will be very interesting.

Comparisons are going to come. Bet on it. I’m ok with good, respectful, discussion. What I’m hoping to avoid are those members of the BMW (B—h, Moan, and Whine) club who will rant about why ED and DCS sux. The commentary has already started on some groups and the jet hasn’t even been released yet. Anyway, I fly BMS as well but am totally looking forward to the DCS Viper. What would really create a disturbance in the universe would be ED releasing a Korean map. :smiling_imp::alien::speak_no_evil:


You mean the dynamic campaign. :wink:



Where did I read a snippet that 50% of the ED team is working on something other than modules…was that something I read here? (I’m not sure if it is true…I’m just wondering if a DC is something where resources are being spent…I hope so!)


It’s from Nick Greys statement on hoggit.

AFAIK they hired a person specifically to build the dynamic campaign.

TIL Gilman Louie works for ED…! Yisssssss…!

(Edit - I’d actually take the Razorworks guys too…)

Razorworks DCs were excellent games. I loved how many different ways you could make a decisive difference to the war. Fight hard at the frontline or do a deep strike at the helicopter generator building.
