When I first bought the I-16, I didn't know what to expect. Now, in hindsight, I can say with confidence that nothing can express the appreciation I have for the I-16 and you, the Devs. Without a doubt, one of the more beautiful modules in DCS, exhibiting a feeling of care and dedication throughout.

Thank you, Merry Christmas, and all the best on your new endeavours. I look forward to seeing what's to come.

Amazing spoiler we all were awaiting since ever. Thanks for the heads up!

I wonder if the La-7 will just appear as the I-16 did pretty much 🤔

It’ll be a beast online no doubt, Luftwaffe flyers are not going to be happy...

Yes, there were the usual Russian problems of build quality, durability, fumes in the cockpit and dodgy plexi. I think Brown mentioned these along with the limited and poor quality instruments and high cockpit workload.

These practical problems won’t really be reflected in the sim though. Low level the La-7 will be a perfect beast.

Another OB update today and still no announcement. The suspense is killing me! LoL! 

To be honest, I'm not sure what to expect from the La-7. Aside from historical accounts, the only thing I have to go by is the La-5FN in that other sim. I find that plane a bit of a pig - not particularly fast, no quick acceleration, looses energy easily in a turning fight even with careful stick and throttle handling. Then again, I, personally, don't put much stock into any of the FMs modeled in the other sim. Besides, that one is a La-5FN, not a La-7. Given the strive for utmost realism in DCS and the remarkable job that OctopusG did on the I-16, I expect that his La-7 will be much closer to real life - for better or worse. Either way, I can't wait!

At the beginning of the next year, we are planning to release the final version state of the DCS: I-16 project and place the long-awaited announcement.

We have great plans ahead.

Thank you for your trust and patience.

 

Well.... the "beginning of the year" has come and gone... Any news???

When can we have the axis control for mixture back?

You can't make this more realistic unless we can have realistic control on the mixture.

  So this update hasn't been released yet?  I had to uninstall my I-16 to make room from the last big patch, but I would install it again in a heartbeat if this update was implemented. OctopusG can we get a G-50 or something similar to fight against? Please!

Does anyone know if the I-16's flight model now is more realistic than it was when it first came out? Back then it was more unstable and wild-feeling. Now it's very precise and stable, you can fly without holding onto the stick even. Is this accurate?

It's time for great news!

After painstaking work, we move the project to the Release status.


Release Changelog:

  • Added EN and RU Flight Manual 

  • Added Training Missions

  • Added a few Single Missions

  • Added Throttle Extra Stroke Zone for air throttle direct control 

  • Fixed Mixture Control: added lever central “Normal” position to automatic control with lock and enrich and lean control and physics

  • Added Ground Power Unit for electrical starter that enables by intercom command

  • Added Wheel Chocks that enables by intercom command

  • Added Failures for:

    • boost regulator

    • mixture governor

    • oxygen governor

    • collimator sight

    • gear drag tensioner

  • Added EN Cockpit

  • Controls Indicator improved: added brakes and RPM axis with nominal mark

  • Added axis input for WEP, mixture, cowl flaps, oil radiator controls

  • Added keys input for separate side doors control

  • Fixed Altimeter behavior during zero altitude setting

  • Fixed Quickstart Missions: weather in the Ground Attack and day-time in Free Flight

  • Added new paint schemes: “Red Five” Aerobatic Team, Silver Demo, Silver-black Demo.

 


 

The radio is not finished yet as we are still awaiting technical support from ED. However, it may be said that this temporary drawback is consistent with historical realities, since only a small number of I-16s were supplied with radio stations.
Anyway, we hope to be able to add the radio in the next updates.

In the future, we plan to expand the content of the module.

Follow the news.
We wish you pleasant flights!

I've just updated, but unfortunately the Flight Manual  is available only in Russian language, and same thing with the Training missions (they are in russian)  😂

and it says that has been added several single player missions, but I only see the quick instant action stage flights, and the tutorial ones.

We need missions and campaign if possible in the normandy or channel map, as there is nothing to download from the users area appart of the mbot dynamic campaign, so I hope in future more missions comes from the dev to give some playability to the plane.

In any case, thanks for the update. It is very well welcome specially the english cockpit.

Indeed, we observe that the current update did not include:

- EN Flight Manual

- EN Training Missions

- Voice for Training Missions 

- Single Missions

Moreover, the Intercom broke down, which is why it is impossible to startup the aircraft without airfield power supply.

We will try to deal the situation as soon as possible.
