    Dear All,

    I promised that we will try to deliver the AGM-65D Maverick air-to-surface missile by the end of April. However, our new developer was not able to overpower the complexity and need a little bit more time and help from the main devs who are working with Hornet features at the moment.

    That being said, we will deliver the small updates such as strobe light to be brighter at night, anti-collision light to be seen on multiplayer servers, improvement to LEF and FCR Hostiles.

    Sincerely,
    The Eagle Dynamics Team

        Dear pilots,

        I apologize for the long gap between Viper mini updates. Things have been rather hectic here, and this fell off my to-do list for too long.

        We have two full-time engineers actively working on the Viper, plus other engineers lending a hand when available. While we originally had separate teams for the Hornet and Viper, we had to combine them to release the Viper on time. We’re happy to have two separate teams again, following the addition of new team members. The below is a summary some of the items in-work or already completed internally.
        • Implementing the AGM-65D
        • Implementing the AGM-88C HARM in HAS and POS modes
        • Further updates to the Litening targeting pod to include cursor zero and many other functions
        • Corrected RWR power
        • Corrected INS alignment if pilot does not confirm coordinates in NORM mode
        • Adjusted FLIR night brightness
        • Added Israeli, Turkish, Greek, Japan (F-2), Italy, Poland, and new US skins
        • Cockpit pilot body and helmet
        • Adjustment to AoA/G limiter

        Thank you and kind regards,
        Wags

          Viper Update – 27 August 2020

          Dear DCS Pilots,

          The primary development items for the Viper remain the AGM-65 Maverick and the AGM-88C HARM in HARM As Sensor (HAS) mode. These were introduced into our internal builds today, and they will be subject to testing over the next several days. Initial tests are good, but there are several items to still resolve.

          We are shooting (not a promise) to release both weapons for the Viper in our September update. However, as always, it will highly depend on testing and how long it takes to resolve issues discovered in testing.

          We understand how eager many of you are for these two systems, and we apologize that it has taken longer than expected due to several reasons. However, we are getting there, and we thank you for your patience.

          In addition to these two new systems, we are continuing to investigate and make needed changes to the Viper targeting pod, flight model/FLCS, HMCS, and data link where needed.

          Kind regards,
          Wags

            DCS: F-16C Viper - AGM-65 Maverick Basics

            DCS: F-16C Viper - AGM-65 Maverick Basics



            Hello everyone,

            In a future DCS World update, we’ll be adding initial implementation of the AGM-65 Maverick tactical air-to-surface missile for our F-16. The Maverick provides standoff ranges between 6 and 8 miles and is ideal for attacking short-range air defense systems and armor.

            Our F-16 can be loaded with four versions of the Maverick, the AGM-65D and G imaging infrared and the AGM-65H and K that are electro-optically guided. Whereas the D and H have 126-pound warheads, the G and K have larger 300-pound warheads. The larger warhead versions are better suited to ships, bunkers, and larger structures.

            Additionally, the D and G infrared versions allow automatic target handoff from the targeting pod.

            A bit later we’ll add Maverick seeker bore sighting, dual targeting, and some changes to the HOTAS. For now though, this will allow you to start employing this weapon and raining Mavericks on foreheads.


            We hope you will enjoy

            Thank you from Eagle Dynamics

              Dear all,

              Although not directly said in the Maverick video, our F-16C Viper will of course include the option for LAU-88 carraige.

              Kind regards,
              Wags

                DCS: F-16C Viper - AGM-88C HARM in HAS Mode



                In a future DCS World update, we’ll be adding the High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missile, or HARM, for the F-16. This missile homes in on the radar emissions of air defense radars and is an important tool in the Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses, or SEAD, role.

                We will first release it with the HARM As Sensor, or HAS, mode, and later we’ll add the Position (POS) and HAD/HTS modes. For HAS, it uses the sensor in the nose of the missile to detect and track detected radars that are in one of the three threat tables. Once the threat is handed off to the ALIC and the missile is launched, it will fly a directly to the target with no range data. As such, it has more limited range than other modes.

                ALIC Tables:

                Table 1(ID, name):
                -110, S300PS_TR_30N6 (SA-10_TR)
                -104, S300PS_SR_64H6E (SA-10_SR)
                -103, S300PS_SR_5N66M (SA-10_SR)
                -115, Buk_LN_9A310M1 (SA-11_TR)
                -107, Buk_SR_9S18M1 (SA-11_SR)

                Table 2(ID, name):
                -120, Tunguska_2S6 (SA-19)
                -119, Tor_9A331 (SA-15)
                -117, Osa_9A33 (SA-8 )
                -121, ZSU_23_4_Shilka (ZSU-23-4)
                -109, Dog Ear (RadarDog Ear)

                Table 3(ID, name):
                -123, S125_TR_SNR (SA-3_TR)
                -122, S125_SR_P_19 (SA-3_SR)
                -108, Kub_STR_9S91 (SA-6)
                -126, SNR-75V (SA-2_TR)
                -118, Strela_9A35M3 (SA-13)
