With the DCS: F-16C now out for several days, I thought it’d be helpful to round-up all of the videos coming from the community for DCS World’s newest jet. Since it’s release, there have been video tutorials, first impressions and even some reviews (or something resembling one) from all across the community. Here’s some of my favourites and must watches for people wanting to get into the jet, learn how it works, or to have a look at some of the opinions out there on what DCS: F-16C is all about right now.
The best way to get started with a new module is often with tutorials and we’re fortunate that not only does Eagle Dynamics release their own tutorials but we also have dedicated community members that put their own spin on training.
First up, two videos from The Grim Reapers who have already produced about a dozen videos on the F-16 for their YouTube channel. I wanted to draw attention to two out of the set because they are very useful in getting started with a cold start tutorial and a basic, how to setup your joystick. Crucial!
Growling Sidewinder’s radar tutorial is an in-depth look at the Viper’s air-to-air radar and how to get the most out of it. This is a key part of the F-16’s combat mission and very useful to get to know when flying the F-16.
RedKite has done three excellent tutorials on aerial refueling, countermeasures, and the targeting pod. All are worth checking out!
First impression and gameplay
For the next section we’ve got a mix of content that kind of blur together. We have first impressions and gameplay.
I’ve done my own early impressions and now here are some other voices from around the community talking about the F-16. These are their impressions, opinions, and thoughts on the new module. Check them out!
I hope you enjoyed the round-up of content out there for the F-16. There’s lots to learn and lots of opinions on the latest jet for DCS World. And a special thanks to all of the YouTube video creators out there for doing the work that they do. It takes time, dedication, and effort to do these things and I appreciate the effort!
