F-16A The G indicator issues in HUD


# Game version


# Description


The G value displayed on HUD in the F-16A's cockpit shows wrong values, it takes into account the plane's level acceleration which isn't the case in real life, it should be vertical acceleration only, so it also doesn't match the "Ny" value (for acceleration in vertical axis only) from localhost page.

It also doesn't display the negative G correctly, it never reaches 0 or anything below 1.0 (for example 0.7G or 0.0G), it just increases above 1.0 when the player is pulling negative G.


# Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. Launch the test flight in SB or RB in the F-16A with minimal fuel amount and no drop tanks

  2. Takeoff

  3. Slow down to 200 km/h at very low altitude

  4. Apply full power and keep looking at HUD's G indicator

  5. Compare the G value from HUD with the G value from localhost page (Ny value)

  6. To check the negative G issue just start to slowly pull negative G and keep pulling more and more


# Additional Information


This is the G indicator:




As you can see it was only for the vertical axis:

2. Video showing how the G value doesn't reach 2G or 3G while the plane is accelerating really fast when it's diving, also it shows how it can go below 1.0G




3. Another video showing it doesn't reach anything above 2.0G while diving


4. The pilot applies full power and accelerates from 370 kts to 470 kts in level flight, the G value doesn't reach 2.0G
