      DCS 2.5.6.52196 Open Beta 2020-07-15

      https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...a/2.5.6.52196/


      Added support of DCS NS 430 Navigation System modules for C-101CC and C-101EB by AvioDev.

      Introduced Historical mode filter in the ME.
      The historical mode is designed to facilitate the creation of historical mission scenarios. If the author of the mission wants to use equipment only for a given year, he can click on the small button with a clock piktogramm in the bottom line of the Mission Editor, after which all lists of equipment and aircraft are filtered out for a given year. The lists will show only those aircraft or equipment that were in service with the selected country in a given year. This mode can be turned on and off in the process of creating a mission if you need to select objects outside a given year.

              DCS 2.5.6.55363 Open Beta 2020-09-23

              https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...a/2.5.6.55363/

              Dear Customers,

              Today we release the Open Beta with several high priority issues for the Hornet AIM-9 family which were discovered yesterday. However, I decided to release this OB because it delivers significant changes made by our partners to the aircraft that are very important for you and we prepared new features for Hornet and Viper.

              The issues will be fixed and updated during the coming week.

              Sincerely,
              Kate Perederko
              Chief Operating Officer
