The F-16 Fighting Falcon is an air-superiority fighter developed for the United States Air Force. The F-16 Fighting Falcon is one of the most successful fighter aircraft of modern times, operated by many air forces worldwide and exported in many differing versions. It remains one of the most capable air combat platforms in the world to this day.

All models have been coded with Microsoft Flight Simulator native 'Model Behaviors' animations and built to MSFS operational specifications All custom cockpit instruments and screens are coded in HTML for native, high-performance display in MSFS The Falcons make use of the new simulator's features such as effects and sounds, fully reflective glass, native aerodynamic sound structures, the new 'Modern' aerodynamics system with the ability to provoke 'departure spins', and customised visibility controls for wheel chocks, covers, and boarding ladder. The Falcons also contain custom-built and animated effects such as afterburners. Other features include authentic cockpit night lighting with brightness controls, and custom-coded manoeuvring flaps and slats Numerous external animations including canopy, crew ladder, tail hook and control surfaces The F-16 Falcons are fully compliant with Virtual Reality headsets Full custom WWise sound set

Cockpit

Truly 3D virtual cockpits featuring accurately modelled ejector seats, controls and detailed texturing All analogue instruments constructed in 3D with smooth animations Scratched canopy' glass effects, reflective glass, icing and rain effects Front and rear cockpit positions included in the D and I variants Fully customisable crew helmets, names, flight suit patches and even faces

Aircraft systems

3D modelled dials, ADI, 'whiskey' compass and other high-detail instruments designed to emulate the appearance of the real F-16 Fighting Falcon Display screens with visual layouts based on the real aircraft's systems (within the confines of MSFS' current capability) Head-Up Display with authentic layout based on the real F-16C Custom-coded, user-controlled ordnance via the simulator Payload Manager, allowing for live mounting of weapons on hardpoints with active weight increase (non-Marketplace edition only) F-16C Falcon systems include auto-trim system, Forward Looking Infra-Red display, Terrain Following Radar mode and full Autopilot and navigation system

A full operations manual is included

The F-16 is a supersonic multi-role military aircraft initially developed by American aerospace firm General Dynamics. The platform traces its developmental lineage to the early 1960s, when air combat practitioners and theorists identified an evolving need for a supersonic, lightweight, and highly maneuverable fighter platform. Years of research and multiple prototypes later, the F-16 took to the skies for the first time in early January of 1974, and entered service on August 17, 1978.

The F-16 has proven to be eminently capable in a number of mission types, including air superiority, interdiction, close air support, and armed reconnaissance. It is considered one of the most successful military platforms, of any type, in history.

The F-16 is powered by a single afterburning turbofan engine, features a cropped-delta wing that is blended to the fuselage with leading edge extensions, a frameless bubble canopy, and advanced fly-by-wire flight controls, among a number of other cutting edge aerospace capabilities.

The F-16C and F-16D (two seat variant of the F-16C) are improved iterations of the original F-16 jet that entered service in 1984. They feature enhanced avionics and flight controls. The F-16I “Sufa” is a two-seat Israeli variant of the F-16C with Israeli-made avionics.
