Just wanted to gather thoughts on how people feel about the new flight models.
(I’m going to reference sim performance since I believe it gives the most accurate feel of a planes abilities)
Before the patch I used to feel that the mig-29 and f-16 were fairly balanced. For example, The mig-29 would win in a slow speed one circle fight (scissors, reverses, etc.) and the f-16 would win in a rate fight. This meant that an f-16 would have to survive a merge and try to force a rate fight, and the mig-29 would have to win before the rate fight, and then try to reverse back into a 2 circle.
This seems to be the way f-16 are supposed fight, being superior in the rate, while the mig-29 should have better AOA and low speed maneuvering because of its bigger wing.
Currently it feels like the f-16c pulls more AOA than a mirage without the speed bleed, and the F-16A and ADF models are close behind. The fights are very one sided with the f-16 winning both the one circle and rate fight (which is very unrealistic.)
As someone who fly’s both, I would like to see the f-16 toned down a little in the one circle fight, Maybe less AOA or more speed bleed or a combo of both.
