Hello new visitor, welcome ! 

 

Here at cockpits.nl 3 combat flightsimulations are supported with our products, Falcon 4.0 and Falcon 4.0:Allied Force, both jet flightsimulations and the helicopter flightsimulation Enemy Engaged Comanche Hokum

All these flightsimulations where released a long time ago, but since the sourcecode of these sims are out in the open, they have evolved to good looking modern flightsims around their true power, the dynamic gameplay.

These simulations are of high quality and many Airforces over the world have used and are using them for specific trainings.

Falcon 4.0
The major power of Falcon is that it has a dynamic campaign, meaning that no mission is ever the same. Originally an F-16 simulation in a war going on in Korea, Falcon is now much more than that.
Falcon 4.0 was released back in 1998 and is still going strong, it has evolved into 2 major user and development groups, Open Falcon and FreeFalcon
Each Falcon version has its pros and cons, hard to tell what is best and often a matter of taste. For detailed information here is a list that sums up the basics

Falcon BMS   latest version: BMS 4.32
For Falcon BMS to run it requires the original Falcon 4.0 sim installation. Best chances to find the original Falcon 4.0 are on Ebay and Amazon.
