New DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map Images

The last big feature is now added to the Nevada map update: the Tonopah Test and Training Range (TTR) Airfield. We consider this the cornerstone of the update. Not only does the TTR airfield act as a divert airfield for Red Flag exercises, it was also home to the Red Eagles (Soviet fighters flown by US aircrews) and the F-117 stealth strike aircraft.

This airfield also greatly extends flight distances between airfields; a common request from our online players.

Today we offer a pair images of the TTR airfield.





DCS: World War II, Normandy Map Update

We are also making great progress with the Normandy map, a chief part of which is creating the many period units to populate the map. Today we offer pair first-look images of famous German heavy tank Tiger what we have created for this new map.

DCS World War II Update
Work continues at great speed on new elements of DCS World War II. Much of the work is focused on DCS: Spitfire LF Mk IX and the Normandy map, and both are, or will be soon, going into internal test! This is always a good sign that we are approaching an Early Access release. In addition to the Spitfire and WW II era map, we also continue working on new AI units to inhabit the map. Last week we had a look at the Tiger tank, this week we offer first looks at the Panther and a work-in-progress image of the B-17.








DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Map Update
In previous newsletters, we shared images of the new airfields coming to the NTTR map. In addition to the airfields though, we will also be adding many new small and large urban centers like St. George, Laughlin, Tonopah, Goldfield, Caliente, and many others.






DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update
Although most of the art work is done for the Hornet (minus a few external stores), most of the current work involves the coding of the various systems and flight dynamics. In addition to that, we are also very busy with documentation and the refining design specification as we gather new information.



Once the project gets closer to Early Access, we can start talking more about this project.

DCS World 2.5 Update
In addition to the Hornet, NTTR, and DCS WWII tasks, another high-priority task for us is wrapping up DCS World 2.5. The primary function of 2.5 will be to combine both 1.5 and 2.0 into a single executable and thereby being able to access all maps from a single program. We are close with the last two big items being the resolution of how we will render forests and trees in 2.5 and updating some of the old objects to our current format.
Once those two items are addressed, we will start releasing some new images and videos of what is in store.

Steam Sale



Also starting today and lasting for the next four days, Steam is having a sale on all DCS World products, with a 30% discount!

Default DCS World Weekend Update - 3 November 2016



DCS: Spitfire LF Mk IX Available for Pre-Purchase on 3 November 2016

We are happy to announce that DCS: Spitfire LF Mk IX will be available for pre-purchase from our e-Shop starting 3 November 2016: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...ules/spitfire/ for $39.99 USD.

Per-purchase the Spitfire and receive a 20% discount on its 16 December 2016 $49.99 USD release price.



The Vickers Supermarine Spitfire is arguably the most iconic fighter aircraft of World War II. Famous for its role in the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire served as Britain’s primary fighter during the entirety of the war. The Spitfire combines graceful lines, eye-watering dogfight performance, and heavy firepower in its later variants. For DCS World, we are happy to bring you the most accurate and realistic simulation of the Spitfire LF Mk IX ever created. The aircraft has been tested extensively by current Spitfire pilot Nick Grey and is unmatched in fidelity and detail.

The Spitfire Mk IX was originally developed as a stopgap measure as a response to the appearance of the Focke-Wulf FW 190A.

The Spitfire IX is powered by the Merlin 66. This engine produces its best performance at slightly lower altitudes than the older Merlin 61. Spitfires equipped with this engine were designated LF Mk IX. This was the most numerous version of the Mk IX, with 4,010 produced. The majority of Mk IXs of all types used the standard “c” wing, which would often carry two 20mm cannon and four .303in machine guns.

The Mk IX was an improvement on the Mk V, especially at altitudes above 20’000 ft. It had a top speed of 409 mph at 28,000 feet, an increase of 40 miles per hour. Its service ceiling rose from 36,200 feet to 43,000 feet. It could climb at 4,000 feet per minute. In July 1942, an early Mk IX was flown against a captured Fw 190A, and the two aircraft were discovered to have similar capabilities. The RAF had its answer to the Fw 190 problem.

The Mk IX replaced the Mk V from June 1942. It allowed the RAF to go back onto the offensive in occupied Europe, and resume the “circus”, “ramrod” and “rodeo” raids. Its first combat success came on 30 July 1942, when a Spitfire Mk IX shot down a Fw 190. Amongst other notable achievements, the Mk IX took part in the highest altitude combat of the Second World War, when it intercepted a Ju 86R at 43,000 feet over Southampton on 12 September 1942. On 5 October 1944 Spitfire Mk IXs of 401 Squadron were the first allied aircraft to shoot down an Me 262 Jet. The Mk IX remained in service until the end of the war, even after the appearance of the Griffon powered Mk XIV. It is considered by many combat pilots as the greatest aircraft of the war and a personal favourite of Johnnie Johnson, Britain’s leading ace of WWII with 34 confirmed kills and 700 operational sorties, the vast majority on Spit IXs.

DCS World 1.5.5 Open Beta
Soon we will be releasing the 1.5.5 Open Beta update to DCS World. Once we feel that any “Showstopper” bugs have been resolved, we will release it as the public version. Some of key features of this update include:

Tactical Markers for F10 Map:
At the request of virtual pilots, we have implemented an option to add markers to F10 map while in a mission. Using a new button on the F10 map toolbar, any player can add his or her mark to the map with a brief description. Thus, you can mark a point or target or landmark on the map, and all the players from your coalition will immediately see it. For example: you could mark targets for the next sorties on the map that could then be assigned to coalition members. Thus, online gameplay becomes much more interactive and makes it possible to develop teamwork under the conditions of rapidly changing environment.



Su-27:
  • Incorrect indication of fuel quantity when start in air has been fixed
  • Flight control system with AOA and G-limiter has been adjusted
  • Autopilot has been adjusted
  • Tires strength has been adjusted

UH-1H:
  • A new option has been added that allows you to now choose different control modes of using TrackIR and mouse together to control the machine gun and door gunner with no need for manually adjustment mouse axis and TrackIR settings.

F-5E:
  • Tail spin has been modified (nature of the aircraft spin entry has been specified)
  • Inverted spin has been simulated
  • Critical engine operation modes at the spin entry have been simulated
  • Radar operation under the conditions of active jamming has been simulated
  • Presentation of the ground clutter on the radar display has been simulated
  • An option to adjust visibility of the target mark using the VIDEO switch under conditions of ground declutter has been added
  • RWR operation simulation has been improved (audible signals from various threats depending on the type of threat operation mode and missile launch signal have been added).
  • The radar beam motion (B-Sweep) has been better simulated on the radar display

There are also many other corrections and improvements.

Default DCS World Weekend Update - 11 November 2016



DCS: F-5E Tiger II Out of Early Access

This past week Belsimtek resolved the remaining issues to bring the Tiger II out of Early Access status. These included:
  • Inverted spins have been simulated

  • Fixed RWR sound issues with new contacts
  • Wing bend and twist due to G-loads has been corrected
  • Changing TACAN channel will not interrupt current radio chat
  • Input: Added some axis commands for TDC, rudder trim, lights etc.
  • With an F-5E air start, the aircraft will be trimmed to the assigned speed like it is implemented for all other aircraft
  • Aileron limiter now disabled at cold start
  • Single player missions added
  • Added inert and training stores
  • Added wing damage with high G overload
  • Drag chute cannot be fully deployed without an airstream
  • Drag chute model corrected
  • Fixed missing right wing light halo
  • Corrected training missions triggers (setting course).
  • Some corrections to Flight Manual
  • Added pilot to cockpit
  • Fixed fuel pressure lights simultaneously going off after single engine start
  • Fixed oxygen pressure gage showing 0 after turning off supply lever
  • Fixed chaff program execution when single flare is selected
  • Added IFF input commands
Belsimtek has (as always) done an amazing job with this aircraft and exemplifies the high level of quality and detail that DCS World modules bring.

DCS World 1.5.5 from Open Beta to Release Version
Last week we released the Open Beta version of DCS World 1.5.5. You can read the changelog here:
https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php...6&postcount=38

Based on both internal and external testing, we have decided to move version 1.5.5 from Open Beta to the release version today.

You can download the complete installer here:
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c.../world/stable/

If you already have DCS World 1.5 installed, please either run 1.5 to start the updater or manually update by selecting Update DCS World from your Windows Start Menu / Eagle Dynamics.

DCS World 2.5 Update



We have determined that the DCS World 2.5 update will not be available in 2016 as we had earlier hoped. This is mainly due to additional work needing to be done of the Caucasus map update, and we don’t feel it can be accomplished within the next two months at a high level of quality. Before we can complete this map update, we first need to finalize and release both the Nevada map update and the Normandy map. Those, along with the Spitfire, are now our highest priorities. Once the Nevada update and the Normandy map tasks are complete, our map team can return to the Caucuses map and move the 2.5 closer to an Open Beta release.

Also, please note that official information is only passed along through our Newsletter and press releases.

Hornet Update

As with the DCS World 2.5 update, it was also decided last week that the Hornet Early Access will be pushed beyond our original desire to release by the end of this year. As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we are now very busy coding the various cockpit systems and flight dynamics. However, as this work continues and we acquire new information, the level of complexity has become more apparent and it will take more time than first estimated.

When we do have significant news on the project to share, we will certainly do so. Once the Early Access for this project goes into pre-purchase, we will announce its release date then.

The NTTR land area includes simulated air defense systems, mock airbases, and several target ranges. The NTTR was also used for nuclear testing. Today, it is home to RED FLAG and other military exercises that include countries from around the world. The NTTR map for DCS World 2 includes Nellis AFB, Creech AFB, the Tonopah test and training range, and the infamous Groom Lake AFB (aka Area 51). This map also includes the city of Las Vegas, McCarran International Airport, 13 small and large commercial and public airfields, and the Hoover Dam.

DCS: F-5E Tiger II Available on Steam

With the F-5E out of Early Access and tested for a couple of weeks, we are now making the F-5E available on Steam later today.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/223750/

The F-5E was developed by Northrop Corporation in early 1970s. The light tactical fighter is an upgraded version based on previous F-5A developments. The F-5s' combat role encompasses air superiority, ground support, and ground attack. Given its mission flexibility, ease of operation, and low cost, the Tiger II has, and continues to serve, air forces across the globe.

The F-5E is armed with two 20-mm M39-A3 cannons with 280 rounds per each cannon. The cannons are located in the nose section, forward of the cockpit. Special deflectors are used to avoid compressor stall conditions caused by hot gas ingestion as a bi-product of operating the M-39-A3. Each cannon is capable of firing at a rate of 1500 to 1700 rounds per minute.

Each wingtip incorporates a launcher rail capable of firing AIM-9 infrared-guided missiles.

Five hard points (one centerline pylon and four underwing pylons) allow the aircraft to carry different types of air-to-ground weapons (bombs, cluster munitions, and rockets) 6,400 pounds (about 3000 kg) in total. In addition, illumination ammunition and cargo containers can be attached. To increase flight duration and range, external fuel tanks can be attached to three hard points (a centerline pylon and two inboard pylons). Maneuverability and speed can be maximized in combat by jettisoning all external stores.



Key Features of the DCS: F-5E Tiger II:
  • Professional Flight Model that accurately mimics the performance and flight characteristics of this legendary fighter
  • Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit
  • Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse
  • Fully modelled weapon system
  • Accurate F-5E model with multiple country markings
  • Detailed modelling of the F-5E instruments, engine, radios, fuel, electrical, and hydraulic systems
  • Single missions and full set of training missions
  • Full and Quick Start manuals in Russian and English languages
  • Extended Campaign for the F-5E by Maple Flags Missions Developer (not included in the module package)


Valid DCS World Key Policy

Although this is stated on the official DCS World Support site, we would like to remind all users the policy regarding valid DCS World keys.

Only DCS World keys purchased from these locations are valid purchases and can be activated in the Module Manager:
  • DCS World E-shop
  • Steam
  • 1C, Gamazavr, and YouPlay in Russia
  • Acealpha in South Korea

Any DCS World keys purchased from other sources are invalid and are simply trying to re-sell keys that are bound to other users or purchased through fraud. Such sites include Kinguin, CDExpress, and G2A.

If you purchase DCS World keys from these sites, we cannot help you. We suggest you contact these sites for a refund.
