Are you looking for an easy way to enjoy the unique nature and classy style of the Lockheed Martin F16? Then with this wonderful selection, you can finally do so. This complete aircraft package includes everything that you could possibly need in terms of the required features to properly enjoy a jaunt into the skies.

With the help of this package, then, you can easily get to grips with the style of the Lockheed Martin F16 once and for all. This is an aircraft that carries a unique style and a personality that goes far beyond its usual contemporaries, and with this recreation you can feel that personality shining through eloquently. When you use this system, you will quickly realize just how much has been included to help you fully understand the aircraft in all its glory.

The full package itself comes after the F-16A MLU M4 Fighting Falcon of the Royal Danish Air Force, meaning that you will likely be flying a model of this aircraft that you are not used to. This update, though, brings to life a wealth of stunning features such as a software tape that enables the aircraft to carry the best and brightest air-to-ground munitions such as the JDAM. This gives you another layer of realism in the aircraft; not only are you in control of a brutally fast and lethal aircraft, but you have simple access to it at all times, making your selection of an aircraft much easier.

For fans of this kind of project, this can be the perfect way to give yourself that real kick in the right direction. In addition to its highly capable AIM-120 AMRAAM aircraft, this also comes with the massively agile IRIS-5 short range air-to-air missiles to help you finally replace those old and outdated AIM-9L Sidewinder missiles. In short, thanks to the hard work and commitment of the designers you will finally be able to have all of the armaments and systems that make this aircraft so well-loved!

Indeed, this also includes the brilliant Pantera targeting pods which makes a simple new dimension to the Air-to-ground targeting systems that tend to be used in a fighter jet. Rarely seen in a flight simulation environment, this works together with the new Helmet Mounted Cueing System (HMCS). This system works alongside the Pylon Integrated Dispenser System equipped with ALQ-162 ELM pods built-in, working perfectly with the ALQ-131 ECM pods carried on the centre line.

Built for War

It’s all of these little features that come together to show you just how brutally powerful the F16 can be in the right hands. With every feature now delivered to you in the most professional and authentic manner possible, you can easily get to grips with all of the other additions. For example, this comes with a PIDS system which enables carriage of extra chaff, housed in your pylons.

This model comes with specific modifications to the basic F-16 such a drag chute compartment, night interception search lights and also typical weapon loadouts. From AMRAAM, IRIS-Ts, GBU-12s and PIDs you have access to everything you could possibly want to have at your fingertips. Now you can have no problems hitting the right target and format!

Full control of the aircraft is easy to manage, too. This is because of the addition of the Virtual Cockpit to make sure you have access to everything discussed so far as well as full control over the aircraft systems and overall flight management system. This makes it much easier to manage your aircraft and to see the flight through properly, as you benefit from a much improved refresh rate. This makes it easier to take off and enjoy your flight process, finally able to understand what little intricate little details need to be used to get something like this under your control.

Indeed, the aircraft has been the beneficiary of a totally revamped set of flight dynamics, too. These new dynamics make sure it flies to the way that you would expect, following the real-life instructions and additions to make sure it flies in the way that you would have originally intended.

Equipped for Authenticity

This is improved by the addition of new AB, vapor and exhaust smoke effects. This little finishing touch to the look tallied well with the model included, using high definition textures and flashy design protocols to bring it all together and make the full package look the part. The aircraft model, created by Kirk Olsson and repainted by Claus Holmberg, gives you access to something refreshing and easy on the eyes.

If you would like to enjoy the flight style and format a little more than you would have in the past, then this modification might be all that you are looking for! This refreshing, honest take on the F-16 is a must-have.

Tips for Usage

To fly this beast properly, you need to be sure of what you are doing and what the protocol requires. For help in doing this, we recommend that you try any of the following suggestions;

  • When taking off, always make sure that you hit F8 first. By doing this, you ensure that the flaps have been fully extended outward.

  • Then activate the parking brake and take your throttle to full power. Hold your brake on for 2-3 seconds to allow power to build up properly.

  • Release your brake and rotate at 125-135 knots.

  • Raise the gear and flaps and then manually turn off your landing lights if you had them on originally.

  • When landing, always try to;

  • Reduce your speed to 300 knots with your speed brake; to use this just hit the / key.

  • Extend your flaps to full with F8, and then adjust your speed with the throttle and speed brake to stay on the glide scope.

  • Next, approach the runway at approximately 200 knots.

  • Just before you hit the runway at around 185 knots, extend your speed brake again, pull the nose up and increase throttle to a slow descent.

  • Cut throttle and touchdown speeds to 145-160 knots.

  • Hold a positive nose pitch until your speed is 130-140 knots. Keep lowering the nose slowly and gradually, applying the brake, until you hit to 100-120 knots.

Sorry, but the free download of the F16 was a poor example of Simshack offerings. The lights and afterburner effects were off center, and the cockpit glass in the VC was obscured. I think this model is available on most "freeware" sites. I assumed that the "free" offerings on Simshack were once "payware" that have been released for download, but I have several "freeware" versions of the F16, which turned out much better than this offering. I will have to say that in the past, I have enjoyed some good "free" and reduced cost aircraft from Simshack. and as always, you get what you pay for. But I think just throwing anything up as a "free" download, is not good marketing. Now, if the plane was an older "payware" with top quality textures, and gauges, etc....it would be a different story. But thanks for all the good service in the past...

The download was great in all respects apart from the opaque outside view from the VC view. The 2D view was good, although it would be better if there was a view of the aircraft ahead, as is seen in most 2D views. Spot view was good also. Having only just flown the download for a few minutes, I have not had an opportunity to search for and operate the many knobs and switches in the VC view. However, I shall look forward to discovering its many features in the days ahead.

The graphics are great, and the sound is very good, but not realistic when reducing throttle. There is, in my opinion, room for improvement in this area. Also, the flame coming out of the engine is not realistic. Virtual cockpit view is sorely lacking in quality. You can't see outside the cockpit. More work on improving this aspect is certainly needed. Aircraft handling characteristics are good, but could be better. I would give it 2 stars.

Great aircraft. Flies beautifully. Sound is fantastic. However, although the indication is that it is P3D compatible, it is not with Version 3.1! All works fine, except, the glass in the VC canopy is opaque. If there were a fix for that, I would fully endorse this.

Thank you for this aircraft. Never flew a sim fighter before and I cannot wait to try it out. In the past when I ordered from you, the service was excellent and still is.

Keep up the good work and I am certain other people like it as well as I.

Thanks to Simschak for this freeware F-16 package. Itīs a wonderfull add-on, very realistic. In my PC however, I can only use the 2D cockpit view, so the virtual cockpit only shows opaque glass cockpit. I donīt know the reason why. But thank you

If you like to fly in the VC this one is not for you. The glass is opaque and nothing can be seen outside. There should be a fix for this.

Good product for the price (Ģ0.00). But, for the same price (not Ģ0.00 but freeware), I 100% prefer F-16 VIPER by KIRK OLSSON !

In the Lockheed Martin F16 I have no after-burner and that is a very pity. Because the aircraft is good.
