DCS: F-16C CBU-105 WCMD tutorial video out

A new weapon option is coming very soon to the DCS: F-16C. This time it’s the CBU-105 WCMD (or Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser). As usual, Matt Wagner has a new video for us on how to make use of the new system. Let’s have a look!

Smart cluster munition

The CBU-105 WCMD is canister weapon with some stand-off capability. Each canister has ten BLU-108 sub-munitions and each sub-munition has four skeets that then seek out nearby targets and fire an explosive penetrator.

It’s basically a CBU-97 but with a standoff capability which increases its usefulness in complex scenarios.

Here’s the video which covers the details of how to use it and features a terrific pyrotechnic show at the end!

    Good times with fancy explosives. The “coming very soon” part sounds good too because it means we might get some news on other hopefully-coming-soon things.

    A Mosquito for one. And news on the BS3 would be great.

      Hopefully! We’re seeing the F-16’s development accelerate again finally. Hopefully some other stuff has “become unstuck” too 🙂

    this is a terrifying weapon! both the intro and outro really demonstrate how it can tackle even semi-dispersed vehicles with precision. And even berms or revetments provide no protection 😮

    Glad to see Falcon getting attention!

    Too bad this won’t be coming to Hornet 😦
