A trio of new DCS: F-16C videos are out with two academic videos covering the Viper’s air to air modes and a new launch trailer has just arrived in the last couple of hours. This is all on the heels of the announcement that the DCS: F-16C will launch sometime tomorrow, October 3rd, to DCS Open Beta access. Plus we also have a few new images just prior to launch. Let’s check them all out!
The F-16C is meant to perform the air superiority role and arguably was designed around the role of short range dogfighter with added capabilities being put into the jet later. So it’s only fitting that the next two videos cover AIM-120 and AIM-9X operations including information on how to use the air-to-air radar system and the helmet cueing system for engaging targets at high off boresight angles.
And now the entertainment
Glowing Amraam does his usual trailer making magic for the DCS: F-16C putting together some glorious images of the new module performing in all of the different ways that you’d expect an F-16C to perform. The dogfights, the attack missions, the screaming jet engines… it’s all here. Go, enjoy!
I am very hyped for tomorrow!
We have new images looking back in the cockpit as the team has just finalized that area of the jet.
We also see the vapour effects in full view here in this one new image as well as the Viper parked on the ground with the gear fully extended. This is an area of the jet that wasn’t quite finished a couple of weeks ago and now is finished. Excellent!
Remember, pre-order discounts end sometime tonight so if you want in now before the discount disappears… you have just hours to make that happen. Tomorrow the module releases to early access!
