  1. DCS World Bug Fixing 26 June 2020 Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends, The last few months have been tough for all of us as we adapt to new workplaces and routines. Over the coming weeks, we will focus on bug-fixing with our internal and external beta-testers to provide a more reliable environment. We are pleased to announce the initial development of the Freya and Würzburg-Riese Second World War military radars. These radars can be used to detect aircraft in both online and offline missions as we continue to improve realism on the battlefield. We will be sharing a release date at a later stage. For our pilots who fly on DCS World Steam Edition, the Summer Sale has finally started and will end on the 9th of July at 10:00 PST. DCS World Multiplayer Events; June 27th SATAL Diamond league 14:00 June 27th Persian Gulf 1985-2 19:00 We encourage you to sign up to these upcoming events: 11th of July HELICOPTERS WARS ROUND 18:00 Briefing is 30 minutes earlier 18th of July 104th RED FLAG RUMBLE JULY 2020 (F-5E & AJS-37 VS MIG-21 & MIG-19) 19:00 Briefing is 30 minutes earlier *all times are in GMT. Thank you for your passion and support. Yours sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team Bug Killer Beta Testing After the last two Open Beta (OB) releases, we received motivating feedback from our community pertaining to issues in need of immediate attention. We have logged and are actively tracking over 2,500 bugs. In the last week, we have squashed close to 283 bugs and will continue this pace for the next two weeks. We have decided to change the release schedule of DCS World Open Beta in order to allow for more detailed Quality Assurance and testing periods, but most importantly for our team to fix bugs and enhance performance. DCS World Open Beta 2.5.6.50979 changelog WWII Radars Freya and Würzburg-Riese The Freya radar was an early warning system developed by the Germans and technically more advanced than the British Chain Home, but less efficient. Because of it’s smaller size it was semi-mobile. However due to its complexity, only 1,000 units were produced. The low-band 53cm wavelength Würzburg radar was the primary ground based radar for the Wehrmacht’s Luftwaffe. During the war, the Freya and Würzburg pair made for excellent ‘spot and track’ systems capable of determining enemy aircraft range and altitude. The Würzburg-Riese known as the Giant Würzburg was developed based on the same circuitry and featured a much larger 7.4m antenna and more powerful transmitter able to provide up to 70 kilometers of range. The Würzburg-Riese was used to direct pilots towards incoming aircraft. Over 50,000 bombers were traced and shot down with the help of these radars. They are significant corner stones and mark the beginning or electronic warfare. We are excited to share our progress and look forward to your battle reenactments using these models and the countermeasure tactics needed to cope with German radar coverage.

  3. DCS: Syria 12 June 2020 Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends, This week our third-party partner Ugra Media announces DCS: Syria as a new addition coming soon to DCS World. This will be one of the most complex and asset-rich terrains available and is the first third party module to be written using our updated code base. Another update to DCS World Open Beta has launched this week with the goal of optimising some of our older modules and enhancing the user experience as a whole. A special thank you to the growing number of developers, Community and partners who contribute so passionately. You make our dreams come true. Thank you for your energy and support and as always, fly safe. Yours sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team Syria A DCS World Terrain This week our third-party Ugra Media announced that DCS: Syria is approaching it’s final stages of development. This map covers most of the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, it includes several climatic zones and territories of 5 states - Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. Since the times of Ancient Egypt, the Roman and Ottoman empires, large-scale wars were fought across these lands. Thousands of years ago these battles were fought with swords and arrows, today these areas have become the theatres of grandiose air combat simulation. During the Arab-Israeli confrontation, Soviet MiGs, American Phantoms and French Mirages fought here. And today almost the entire arsenal of DCS combat aircraft and helicopters rise into the sky above this territory. DCS Syria will bring 32 aerodromes including the international airports of Damascus, Beirut, Adana and Haifa. Check out the Ancient Palmyra districts Development Screenshots. Open Beta Updated DCS World 2.5.6 We have been enhancing the core of DCS World. With your feedback and the release of DCS: The Channel, we have been able to streamline texture and save game pre-loading. We are still working on the F/A-18C Hornet and F-16C Viper features and will share more information at a later date. Two Open Beta Updates were published, our focus has been on some earlier DCS World modules, with the aim of setting the standard across our range of modules. Various Second World War campaigns by Reflected Simulations have been updated and now include the P-47D Thunderbolt as an AI aircraft. This includes the LF Mk.IX Spitfire The Big Show Campaign. The F-14B Tomcat by Heatblur Simulations has received aerodynamic updates and increased compatibility with DCS: Supercarrier. The MiG-21bis first phase cockpit build was pushed to fix bugs in the external model. The volumetric lights for the gauges are new and we look forward to your feedback regarding any FPS loss. You can read the Full Changelogs here Night Attack AV-8B N/A V/STOL The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) DCS: AV-8B Night Attack V/STOL is a single-engine ground-attack aircraft of the second generation Harrier Jump Jet family. The Spanish and Italian Navy both actively operate the AV-8B V/STOL. The Night Attack was first seen causing real havoc with the United States Marine Corps during the Gulf War of 1991. Since then it has served in multiple large operations, most notably the Iraq War of 2003 where 60 AV-8Bs were involved in over 2,000 sorties and enabled 24-hour ground force support. The marvellous machine continues to provide exceptional realism and withholds many features a Hornet Pilot could only dream of. Capable of vertical or short takeoff and landing (V/STOL), the Anglo-American development is the perfect addition to your aircraft-carrier compatible modules. Check out the AV-8B Night Attack Thank you again for your passion and support, Kind regards,
  4. P-47D & The Channel Early Access 5 June 2020 Dear Fighter Pilot, Partners and Friends, After close to 40 man-years of work, the new Channel Map for DCS is now available to download. The Terrains Development Team have delivered this beautiful multi- purpose map with a new level of object detail and geographic accuracy. From Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain until the end of the war, the thin stretch of water saw more aerial activity than anywhere else in Europe. This week, a long-awaited addition to our Warbird line up is taking to the air. The P-47D Thunderbolt was a very successful and well-loved fighter. This remarkably rugged and dependable aircraft offers superb gameplay over our World War II battlefields, especially as it was also a highly effective ground attack fighter. Please note, if you are a WWII Backer of a suitable level, you can receive DCS: P-47D Thunderbolt for free from the Personal section , you can also gift the module, if you would like to do so, please contact Support via a support ticket. Over the past year, we have been working on updating the characteristics of air-to-air weapon systems. Your demands and feedback help us to push the level of accuracy in this area of our simulation to a new level. Please take the time to read about our new physics model with the AIM-120 AMRAAM report. We have been working hard on highly requested F/A-18C Hornet features. Check out the development roadmap and watch Matt Wagner’s videos. We hope these videos will help kick start your knowledge and smooth the learning curve. Thank you for your passion and support. Yours sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team The Channel Release A DCS World Terrain DCS: The Channel Map is now available in Early Access. Our map of the South East of England and North Eastern France encompasses historical airfields, urban areas, roads and railways, ports and other features that make it the perfect setting for the World War II air war in Europe between 1940 and 1945. This highly detailed map also provides a wonderful opportunity to mass deploy ground assets and to re-enact epic air battles and enjoy ground operations not yet seen in DCS World. Take advantage of Early Access 20% discount on The Channel Map P-47D Thunderbolt Early Access Release This week we Introduce the heavyweight Republic P-47D Thunderbolt, which first took to the sky in May, 1941. Nicknamed the Jug, it was a real workhorse of the Allied victory, weighing nearly twice as much as the British Spitfire. Fully loaded, it could deliver about half the payload of a B-17 Flying Fortress. The P-47D was popular amongst pilots, with an astounding safety record, a roomy cockpit and an enhanced visibility bubble canopy. The Republic Aviation factories in New York, Indiana and Buffalo assembled 15,600 units between 1942 and 1945. The Pratt & Whitney R-2800-59 Double Wasp radial engine enabled the Juggernaut to keep up with the nimble and lightning-fast North American P-51D Mustang. Thunderbolts were sent to Britain, France and even the Soviet Union, where they largely served in interceptor roles. The new DCS: P-47 Thunderbolt is designed to work on the latest DCS World 2.5.6 and is not compatible with previous versions. It takes advantage of our latest graphics and texture technology, enabling you to push the limits of your system, whilst maintaining good frame rates. We hope you will enjoy this update to the World War II era product range and look forward to your constructive feedback, which helps us deliver better products. Make sure you take advantage of the P-47D Early Access 20% discount. AIM-120 AMRAAM Development Report As stated in previous news, we have spent a lot of time performing Computational Fluid Dynamics research. Almost 250 different calculations for every missile variant have been made. Our results have enabled us to simulate aerodynamic characteristics with a much higher level of accuracy. In contrast to the old missile dynamics model, the new one includes stability and control characteristics. We have calculated missile mechanical properties such as center of gravity and moment of inertia before ignition and after burnout. More major updates include; revised data for rocket motor performance, ballistics and range. Development of a velocity-altitude adaptive autopilot. Frequency response with the addition of deflection acceleration feedback. The construction of the electromechanical fin actuator assembly and Step response reaction control system. Autopilot and lofted trajectory for long-range shots. Please read the full air-to-air missile development report F/A-18C Hornet SLAM, AG Radar We would like to thank everyone who participated in the F/A-18C Hornet roadmap poll. It has helped us plan the next list of deliverables for 2020. Read the full list of features here. This week we introduce the first iteration of the This first version models MAP mode and allows you to search for and designate target locations. Later, we will be adding other modes like the EXPAND levels, Ground Moving Target, SEA, and Terrain. In the next update, we have both air-to-ground and air-to-air updates for the . This includes more realistic AG tracking modes and FLIR tracking of aerial targets in cooperation with the radar. In this week's update, we explore the inclusion of the IN ZONE LAUNCH ACCEPTABLE REGION (IZLAR) for the JDAM. This provides additional delivery information and will be tied to the later inclusion of pre-planned IZLARs and multiple attack points. We hope that these videos help you learn the new features of the F/A-18C and look forward to your feedback. Thank you for your passion and support and as always, fly safe.
  5. Stable Release 2.5.6 29 May 2020 Dear Fighter Pilot, Partners and friends, After substantial testing, DCS World 2.5.6 has moved from Early Access into Stable state. This version encompasses a number of updates to the environment, notably water transparency, environment lighting and tone-mapping. It also includes the JF-17 Thunder and recently released Supercarrier. We would like to take this opportunity to share some screenshots of the Marianas Map as we continue to enhance this highly realistic operational, tactical and procedural training environment. The Marianas Islands are a crescent-shaped archipelago comprising fifteen dormant volcanoes, situated in the western North Pacific Ocean and are, since WWII of strategic importance to the USA. Our integration of Varjo Technologies VR/XR equipment is progressing well. Varjo offers unique features which are of great value, in particular for professional and military users. We would like to remind you that the Eagle Dynamics Bonus program will end on the 1st of June. The program was replaced last year with the Miles & More Program while the previous program was being phased out. We trust that you are enjoying the Early Access release of the Supercarrier. Thank you for your passion and support. Yours sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team DCS World 2.5.6 Stable Release DCS World 2.5.6 represents one of the biggest updates since the launch of DCS World 2.5 and offers powerful new tools capable of CPU load distribution and FPS management when using peripheral hardware. Many of the improvements in this update are thanks to your feedback and requests, we can’t wait to hear what you think. The Stable release covers over 700 improvements, features and fixes. Read the full changelog. Marianas Development Report Rota Island, also known as the Friendly Island is 19km in length and has a population of 3,500 people. It is the southernmost island of the United States Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands. It has been modelled in extraordinary detail and is close to completion. We continue to work on the organised, unincorporated territory of the United States in Micronesia; Guam. This island was captured by the Japanese in 1941 and occupied for almost 3 years. The American forces recaptured the island on the 21st of July, 1944; Liberation Day commemorates this victory. Special attention is being given to the Andersen Air Force Base located approximately 4km northeast of Yigo. Andersen AFB is one of two critical air bases in the Asia Pacific region. Guam’s almost unrestricted airspace and it’s close proximity to the Farallon de Medinilla Island, a naval bombing range 250km north, make it an ideal training environment. Andersen AFB is home to 36th Wing (PACAF), 734th Air Mobility Support Squadron (Air Mobility Command) and Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Twenty-Five (HSC-25). We continue to improve the cross balance of colour and gamma between terrain textures (vegetation and ground), trees and other objects (infrastructure). The water’s fluidity, colour and transparency have also been tuned for more realistic characteristics. See screenshots. We are now working on the P-47D Thunderbolt and The Channel Early Access Map and look forward to sharing the progress with you over the coming weeks.
