We’ve known for a while that Eagle Dynamics have been tweaking the F-16C’s flight model and several of those tweaks have already emerged in recent open beta updates. But the next update looks like a more substantial one and the differences are highlighted in a new video released by Growling Sidewinder.
Growling Sidewinder was given access of a preview of what Eagle Dynamics have been doing for the DCS: F-16C and has put together a very interesting video that showcases what the practical outcomes are.
In the opening couple of minutes, the video shows the differences side by side and they are noticeable with the updated flight model coming soon to open beta showing off a subtle but noticeably faster turn rate with slightly less energy loss during the turn. Although the test aircraft had no weapons on it, this does show us what a “clean Viper” can do and that is sure to impress many of you.
I know the flight model and responsiveness of the jet has long been an issue for many of you and so its good to see this change highlighted. Have a look and watch the video yourself. With a new open beta likely to arrive in the next several days, its likely you’ll also be able to try it out for yourself very soon too.
