The New Benchmark in Flight Sim Technology

The North Koreans have crossed the DMZ. Your F-16 squadron has been called for the strike back...

Only the makers of the acclaimed Falcon 3.0 could launch a new era of flight simulators. Falcon 4.0 breaks the sight-and-sound barrier with its cutting-edge graphics, realism, dynamic campaigns and multiplayer gameplay.

Only MicroProse could push the envelope to offer accurate topographical terrain, detailed radar and weapons simulation, hyper-realistic flight models and stunning visuals.Features:
  • The realism in Falcon 4.0 is as intense as the vapor streaming over your leading edge flaps when you crank on the Gs.
  • You'll recognize your Dogfight team members by their aircraft markings. Of course the guys on the other teams are ready to paint little bull's-eyes over them.
  • At the heart of Falcon 4.0 is the real-time campaign engine, tested and approved by actual F-16 pilots.
  • Falcon 4.0's detailed, accurate topology and stunning graphics break new ground in the world of modern military flight sims.
  • In Falcon 4.0, you'll discover an enormous range of aircraft and ground units - all in chilling detail.

Falcon 4.0 reviews and comments

Ok, this version doesn't work very well. But if you want to play Falcon BMS (a complete overhaul of Falcon 4.0) you need to install this one! (it must be a version of "Falcon 4.0" and not "Falcon 4.0 Allied Force") After that go to http://www.bmsforum.org/forum/showthread.php?26567-Falcon-BMS-4-33-U1-Full-Installer Falcon BMS is a very good, very difficult and extremly realistic simulation. It doesn't have fancy graphics like DCS, but in my opinion it is the better simulation. I highly recommend to you to join an BMS online squadron if you want to learn this "game" in depth.

Very good simulator of F-16, if you are looking for a game in the style of war Thunder,... It's not really what you need, here it really is not an arcade game but a simulation-oriented game, so that seeks to get closer to reality, the avionics of the F-16 is there when fully reproduced and functional in its current version (Falcon 4 BMS) that you will need to download (free if you have a Falcon 4.0 install). In short if you are looking for an excellent game of millitarian aerial simulation you can turn to this one or DCS world which are both good simulators.

Game at the top of the simulation, difficult demanding this game just allows to install and play BMS free of charge at benchmark Sims http://www.bmsforum.org/forum/content.php (register on the forum for download) BMS is maintained by a Community of enthusiasts and former developers of the original game BMS 4.33 was released in October 2015 while the game Falcon 4 date from 1998 take the time to read the documentations (in English) as thick as the veritable flight manuals of the useful info piles E t go take a look at the videos in order to decide but you will not regret;)

So I know, some will say "but, they are completely wacky homeless characters to buy a simulator of 1998 while today there is DCs that is definitely more complete!" I agree with you. This game, basic, is well exceeded. And yet it is far from irrelevant. As many know, I suppose, this game is removed from an extremely well realized mod that allows it to become up to the simulators of today, as much level realism as graphic: Falcon BMS. Falcon BMS, free, is downright an alternative to DCS world and works perfectly with the steam version of Falcon 4.0. You doubt that a MOD can make a game of 1998 hyper contemporary? Admire! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcMOOOulhME I think there is nothing to add. Buy Falcon 4, install Falcon BMS, and enjoy one of the most realistic simulators in the world with a dynamic multiplayer campaign of which DCS lacks cruelly.
