Default 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.

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.
