Back to Baghdad Military Simulations Inc. Military Simulations Inc. F-16 Exhibit Combat year: 1996 org: Military Simulations Inc. org: Military Simulations Inc. Back to Baghdad was an F-16 simulation set in the Gulf War (1991) . It was a DOS sim with claims to high fidelity of flight model and weapons systems modelling and was priced about 30% higher than other PC sims at the time. The publishers Military Simulations Inc. went on to specialise in military sims and released no more products for the home market. It was unique in that it supported a second monitor for the radar display - and this while running in DOS !
Falcon 3.0 Spectrum Holobyte F-16 Exhibit Combat year: 1991 org: Spectrum Holobyte An iconic flight simulator, Falcon 3.0 pushed the boundaries of air combat sims. It had all the features anyone could dream of at the time and the gameplay was riveting, with dynamically generated missions. It was also demanding on hardware, needing a 486 with a maths co-processor to run the "High-Fidelity Flight Model".

General Dynamics F-16 Cockpit org: General Dynamics Anyway I was planning my F-16 cockpit, and a quick phone call to General Dynamics USA led to a nice chat with a senior manager and my request for a photo of the F-16A cockpit led to this arriving in the mail a week later!
General Dynamics F-16 Cockpit org: General Dynamics My first cockpit was scaled fairly closely to the F-16. Using calipers I multiplied the dimensions out to build a cardboard mockup and then a plywood and aluminium prototype.
Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar F-16 article pub: 2019 article updated: 2019-10-28 org: Thrustmaster During the period 2002-2003 I retailed the HOTAS Cougar in Australia, shipping units to SE Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I provided tech support and advice on configuration and setup in flight sims. I also engaged on social media, answering questions and addressing issues. I'm still happily using my HOTAS Cougar, that's 17 years of continuous use!
