    P-47D Thunderbolt
    Development Report



    We will be introducing two expansions to DCS: P-47D Thunderbolt. The P-47D-30 (Early)
    modification will become available; equipped with a Mark 8 gunsight, an earlier version of
    the control stick and throttle lever, as well as modified bomb dropping mechanics. From the
    exterior, the model is easily distinguishable due to the absence of the fin strake in the upper fuselage.

    Our second modification is the P-47D-40 with rocket capabilities. These rockets are the familiar
    HVARs and the M8 rockets, both used extensively by the Allies in large numbers during World War II.
    The aircraft bombing loadouts have also been expanded.

    Coming soon: integration of water methanol injection, improved engine damage modelling, and
    compressibility recovery using underwing dive flaps.



    F-16C Viper
    Updates



    Most notably, we are working on the HARM and Maverick missile systems and look forward to sharing
    more information with the next 2.5.6 Open Beta update.

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


    Thank you again for your passion and support,

    Kind regards,

      In this A-10C II Tank Killer video, we’ll introduce the primary features of this update and instruct on use of the AGM-65L laser-guided Maverick. A-10C II Tank Killer will be released by the end of September 2020.

      For the first month after release, existing A-10C Warthog customers can update for just $9.99. After one month, the price will increase to $19.99. For those that don’t own A-10C Warthog, you’ll be able to purchase the complete A-10C II Tank Killer for $79.99.

      A-10C II Tank Killer will have the following, primary features:

      1- New weapons like the AGM-65L laser-Maverick, the GBU-54 laser-JDAM, and the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System laser-guided rocket.
      2- The Helmet Mounted Cueing System, or HMCS.
      3- Updated cockpit and external model graphics.
      4- Improved flight dynamics
      5- Updated HOTAS commands.

        DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer - GBU-54 Laser-JDAM



        In this DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer video, we’ll look at the GBU-54 laser-JDAM. The GBU-54 is 500-pound class bomb with options for INS/GPS and laser-homing guidance. It can be loaded on all 1760 smart racks.

        While INS/GPS allows you to launch-and-leave and the ability to engage through cloud and smoke cover, the laser-guidance provides increased accuracy and the ability to engage moving targets. It’s up to you to determine the best guidance based on the engagement.

          DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer - Laser Guided Rockets



          In this DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer video, we’ll look at the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System, or APKWS laser-guided rocket. The APKWS consists of either M151 or M282 2.75-inch rocket mated with a laser guidance kit.

          Based on a laser- designation from your targeting pod our an offboard laser-designation source, the APKWS, also referred to as the AGR-20A, can have pinpoint accuracy on targets out to around 5 miles.

          The M151 version has a high explosive warhead and the M282 version has a penetrator warhead. Both versions are ideal against unarmored and lightly armored targets. However, the AGR-20A is not designed to defeat tank armor.

          Seven APKWS rockets are carried in each LAU-131 rocket pod.

            Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

            We are pleased to announce that the MB-339A is coming to DCS World. This exciting
            project comes to us from a group of flight simulation and aerobatics enthusiasts who
            saw DCS as the ideal platform to pursue their virtual flights. The MB-339 is an excellent
            fighter-trainer, which incidentally is being used by the Italian Air Force cadets.

            As DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer prepares for takeoff, we are happy to share our develop-
            ment progress on the AGM-65L Laser Maverick, GBU-54 Laser JDAM and APKWS laser-
            guided rocket. We are confident that this major upgrade will be an exciting addition to this
            iconic and effective weapons system. Check out the Tank Killer introduction and Laser Maverick
            video
            and how to use GBU-54 Laser JDAM.

            The module will also receive a damage model, detailed flight manual, and many missions.



            A-10C II Tank Killer
            Development Update



            DCS: A-10 II Tank Killer is currently undergoing a lengthy closed testing period to
            ensure accuracy, stability, and a smooth launch. We continue to improve the Helmet
            Mounted Cueing System (HMCS) indicators, add more skins and mission content, and
            tune flight model changes. We encourage you to get familiar with the new weapon
            systems to hit the ground running.

            cover, the laser-guidance provides increased accuracy and can engage moving targets. It’s
            up to you to determine the best guidance based on the engagement.

                DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer | Helmet Mounted Cueing System (HMCS)



                In this final preview video for DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer, we’ll look at the new Helmet Mounted Cueing System, or HMCS. The HMCS consists of several sub-systems, but we’ll focus on the Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) and the Profile Editor in this video.

                The HMCS provides excellent situational awareness and the ability to cue weapons and sensors by just looking at the target and setting a designation. Please note though that his is not the same helmet implementation as for the Viper and Hornet systems; it is in many ways far superior in the air-to-ground mode.

                        A new addition to the renowned A-10C is the Helmet Mounted Cueing System (HMCS). It provides
                        excellent situational awareness and the ability to cue weapons and sensors by just looking at the
                        target and setting a designation. Please note that this is not the same helmet implementation as
                        for the Viper and Hornet systems; it is in many ways far superior.

                        Supercarrier
                        Development Progress



                        We are currently working on the animation engine capabilities. We have added additional animations
                        to vary operations phases on-board DCS: Supercarrier. A new skeleton that better matches human
                        anatomy is in progress, this will improve realistic deck crew movement.

                        We are also working on improving the catapult launch animation for the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet pilot.
                        The hand models have been corrected whilst we continue to develop Nomex® flight gloves. We are
                        also using highly detailed 3D scanning technology to better model the pilot for point-of-view experience.
                        When complete, the CWU-27 / p Flight Suit and the CSU-13 / p Anti-G Suit will be available.

                        Campaign by Reflected Simulations



                        August, 1944. You arrive in Merville-Calonne to take on leadership of 7./JG26 flying Focke Wulf 190A-8s.
                        Most of the pilots are mere teenagers with only a few flying hours, and your job is to turn them into an
                        efficient fighting unit under the ever-increasing pressures of the war. The Allies have gained complete air
                        superiority over the continent, and their ground forces are advancing rapidly through France.

                        Experience the thrill of attacking large bomber formations head-on and the terror of taking off amid the
                        bullets of low flying Mustangs. Download DCS: Fw 190 A-8 Horrido! Campaign by Reflected Simulations now.

                          Damage Model



                          09 October 2020


                          Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

                          We are currently working on improving AI logic and in particular Air to Air combat behaviour.
                          This results in a revised set of combat rules and more human-like outcomes while in offensive
                          and defensive maneuvers.

                          The new World War II airframe Damage Model will now take into account more detailed principles
                          such as: load-bearing elements, their material, control systems, electrical systems, geometric
                          dimensions and explosive characteristics of various ammunition types.

                          Raven One is a new DCS World Campaign developed with help from former U.S Navy pilots,
                          both with over 3,000 career flight hours and numerous overseas deployments.
                          Download it now on Steam and our Eshop.

                          Thank you for your passion and support.


                          Yours sincerely,

                          Eagle Dynamics Team



                          Air Combat
                          New Features



                          Our improved AI will encompass variable decision making protocols dependent on a continuously
                          calculated environment in order to enhance fight/disengage/run behaviour. The AI will make
                          emergency landing decisions on land or water (ditch), it can also react in case of sudden attacks
                          even if the attacker is not visible. If there is light damage, it will attempt to evade the ‘unseen
                          attack’ and search for the attacker. When damage is more serious, it will evade and RTB where
                          and when possible. Potentially the damage can be too high and the only solution is bailing out.



                          Damage Model
                          Development Progress



                          Closed beta testing is now in final stages as we plan to release for public testing at the end of
                          this month. The new damage model will also be integrated into WWII AI bombers.

                          Each aircraft has unique hydraulics, pneumatic and electrical systems and materials. As a result,
                          the predicted damage depends on the type of munition, munition velocity dependent on distance
                          and location of impact. The internal effects such as engine/radiator damage, coolant or oil tempe-
                          rature variation, loss of pressure, loss of control or other effects will generate the corresponding
                          internal and/or external visual effects.

                          We have deployed this technology to all our World War II fighters, and we trust that the long wait
                          will be worth it and we hope that it will be to your demanding expectations.

                          This campaign has been developed by our third party partner Baltic Dragon in close cooperation
                          with two experienced former Hornet pilots: Vincent Aiello, host of the Fighter Pilot Podcast, and
                          Kevin Miller, author of the Raven One trilogy. Throughout 15 missions and 2200 custom voiceovers;
                          get into the boots of James ‘Flip’ Wilson of the VFA-64 Ravens squadron and fly memorable sorties

                            A-10C Flight Improvements




                            16 October 2020


                            Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

                            Some of you will already have seen the news regarding DCS: A-7E Corsair II currently
                            under development by our third party friends, FlyingIron Simulations. For those of you
                            who didn’t catch it, below is some exciting information on the progress being made.
                            You will notice that the external 3D model shows promising accuracy and realism.

                            We have recently fine tuned the A-10C flight model characteristics and we have taken
                            this opportunity of presenting Dima Yo-yo’s A-10C Flight Improvements report for your
                            consideration. Also please check out the sound enhancements made to the GAU-8/A
                            Gatling gun, it’s quite something. A-10 GAU-8/A Updated Gun Sounds.

                            Thank you for your passion and support.


                            Yours sincerely,

                            A-7E Corsair II
                            Progress


                            With the core of the fuel system in place, the team’s next focus will be on integrating
                            cockpit switch functionalities, gauges and displays. Work has also begun on the electrical
                            system, which powers avionics and sensors. This is highly detailed work and one of the
                            developers top priorities.

                            A-10C
                            Flight Model



                            The instantaneous turn rate was tested and improved. It was noticed during this test
                            that maintaining near-stall AoA was a bit tricky due to buffeting.

                            We have tuned our buffeting model to match the reference charts and then, the tests
                            were conducted again in the same conditions. Load factor fluctuations are now gone,
                            resulting in the ability to maintain near-stall AoA.

                            Sound FX



                            The GAU-8/A “Avenger” 30mm hydraulically driven autocannon has received an
                            improved set of sound effects to take advantage of better doppler shifting, sound
                            delay between round impacts, round flight and cannon fire effects. The seven barrel
                            gatling-style gun is capable of delivering 4,200 rounds per minute, striking fear into
                            any surrounding enemies.

                            Brrrrrtttt on!

                            We would like to share the Flaming Cliffs 2 soundtrack, which was produced in-house by
                            Darth Dmitry Baikov, our lead developer specialising in network, content distribution

                                Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,


                                We are pleased to announce that our special DCS World Halloween Sale is starting
                                today and will run until the 8th of November. For our friends who fly on Steam, a
                                shorter but nevertheless substantial sale will take place from the 29th of October
                                until the 2nd of November.

                                In the upcoming DCS World Open Beta update, we plan to deliver the possibility
                                of selecting desired impact conditions for the GBU-54 bomb via the DSMS page
                                for DCS: A-10C II and via the JDAM MSN page in DCS: F/A-18C. A whole raft of
                                additional features and bug fixes will also be delivered. Stay tuned.

                                After the initial release of the AGM-65 Maverick for the DCS: F-16C Viper, multiple
                                bugss were identified during the beta-testing period. The next Open Beta will
                                resolve most of the more pressing issues.



                                Thank you for your passion and support.



                                Yours sincerely,

                                The key feature for this updated JDAM is the new autopilot. This weapon now incorporates enhanced
                                trajectory laws and provides the capability of programming for an impact with a specific terminal heading
                                and vertical angle. These options are designed to improve weapon effectiveness depending on the type
                                of target. The graph below demonstrates this effect.

                                Due to aerodynamic restrictions precise impact points are not always possible, in this case, JDAM uses
                                an algorithm to check the impact heading and vertical angle. If the check indicates a noticeable miss,
                                the algorithm will seek for conditions that will allow for an on target hit. In addition, to reduce the probability
                                of a near miss and to improve ballistics penetration, the autopilot will command a zero angle of attack during
                                the last seconds of flight.

                                We encountered a target lock issue with objects in close proximity to the desired enemy. Symbology errors
                                on the WPN page will be fixed in the next update. The seeker depression angle markers are currently being
                                adjusted as well as the Sensor of Interest (SOI).

                                In the next Open Beta update, the addition of the BSGT option and uncage ability will be added. The LOS
                                handoff indication on HUD can also be expected. The possibility to engage target lock with two missiles
                                prior to launching the first will also become available. It will be possible to ripple fire two locked-on missiles
                                with RP 2 option. We are also working on the TMS-right re-command handoff.



                                Thank you again for your passion and support,


                                Kind regards,

                                    Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,


                                    This week we are pleased to share some new features for DCS: F/A-18C Hornet coming in next Open Beta.
                                    We are finalising work on the data link information that displays friendly, unknown and hostile air contacts to
                                    the Helmet Mounted Display. Once completed, we will also add the Air-to-Ground mode.

                                    We would like to share the current development progress of DCS: Mariana Islands. The civilian building
                                    assets have been finalised and we are currently working on finalising airfields and military installations,
                                    including storage bunkers, radars and hangars.

                                    We kindly remind you this is your last chance to get DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer Upgrade for only $9.99.
                                    Check out the new updates in the DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer November Update.


                                    Thank you for your passion and support.



                                    Yours sincerely,


                                    Eagle Dynamics Team

                                    The new GRID function will allow you to edit and create waypoints using coordinates,
                                    this is particularly useful when working with a JTAC. The new Azimuth / Elevation (AZ/EL)
                                    air-to-air radar page will display contacts and their relative elevation. Later, we will add the
                                    automatic-IFF and FLIR elements to this page.


                                    We are also working on the ground effect for the Hornet and have corrected lofting for the HARM.
                                    A bug when using IR-maverick for the first time has also been resolved as well as many more improvements.

                                    Real geographic data is used to create the initial topography layer and road networks.
                                    The placement of civilian housing assets and vegetation is now also complete.
                                    We encourage you to check out the In Development Screenshots.

                                    Antonio B. Won Pat airport in Guam is now in its final stages. We are also working on the
                                    Andersen Air Force base. We look forward to sharing more information in the new year.

                                    After recent improvements to the exterior sound effects, the cockpit has also been tuned.
                                    The updates will become available as part of our next Open Beta Update on the 4th of November.

                                    In addition to the improvements on the A-10C flight model, our team has also been working on
                                    DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and DCS: F-16C Viper.

                                    We understand that the targeting pod and pre-planned mode of the Maverick is not working as desired.
                                    This is not a malfunction of either the targeting pod or Maverick, but rather the Sensor Point of Interest
                                    (SPI) logic in the Viper. This is a high priority for the team to address, but it will not be ready for the
                                    November Open Beta update. However, the next update will include a significant improvement to
                                    ground handling, non-PRE mode Maverick improvements, refinements to the HARM, and more.

                                    Both of these modules have a massive 30% Halloween Sale 2020 discount. We hope this will give you
                                    a chance to kick start your learning of these complex weapon systems.


                                    Thank you again for your passion and support.
