DCS Dogfight: F-16C Viper vs JF-17 Thunder
With the launch of Deka Ironwork Simulations JF-17 Thunder module into EA (early access) 2 days ago, it was only a matter of time until someone went up against the F-16 Viper to see how she performed!
This video showed up on YouTube yesterday (5th Dec) showing the DCS pilot (Callsign: Cateye) in a guns-only dogfight with the Thunder.
It was a LONG (9 min 48 sec) fight, with LOTS of maneuvering on both planes’ behalves.
The Viper hit 8-9G & blacked out multiple times. He would have been EXHAUSTED by the end of that fight IRL (in real life).
I won’t spoil your surprise by telling you who won – you’ll have to watch the video yourself and see how it turns out. 🙂
Post your comments about the fight below and where you think either pilot got it right or wrong!
