New DCS: Normandy 1944 Map Videos
Although the Normandy map was built to support our growing line of World War II products, there is no reason it cannot also be used for the modern aircraft of DCS World. These two videos show one such example: an Su-25 attack mission.

These are un-edited looks at the Normandy map that we believe shows off the outstanding level of detail and the new lighting system.

Target strike

Over the past few weeks we’ve released images and videos of several allied and axis tanks coming to the World War II Assets Pack. Today, we’d like to share some work-in-progress images of some of the new anti-aircraft units that are also coming to the Assets Pack.

DCS World 1.5.6 Update 2
In order to support the release of the new UH-1H: Argo Campaign, we are releasing the second update to DCS World 1.5.6. In addition to adding support for the campaign, this update also corrects the UH-1H CDI behavior, several fix to the L-39, and several other adjustments.

You can view the entire 1.5.6 Update 2 changelog here.


DCS: UH-1H Argo Campaign by 373vFS Greg



We are pleased to announce the release of the UH-1H: Argo campaign!

Purchase in DCS E-shop.



Preview by Mudspike.

UH-1H Argo, is a story driven campaign consisting of you in the role of an experienced Greek UH-1H pilot with many years of service in the Hellenic Army Aviation.
Recently you and a number of active Huey pilots are transferred in the Hellenic Navy.

The campaign starts on July 2017. NATO Exercise “Sea Breeze” is taking place once more in the Black Sea. This year, Georgia’s Batumi port is being used as a base for all the allied naval forces. The countries that participate in the exercise are Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Lithuania, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Ukraine, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.



One year after the US-led coalition’s operations in Iraq’s city of Mosul, Georgia accepted a large wave of refugees arriving through Turkey. NATO wanted to show its support by conducting the exercise in Georgian Territory.

For the needs of “Sea Breeze” exercise, Hellenic Navy's frigate ARGO FFG-46, sailed towards Batumi in order to provide support to the NATO Fleet and the rest of the Greek Forces.



Recently Greece successfully negotiated with the United States Government, about a military partially funded assistance program, which included the purchase of 4x retired Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates of the US Navy. The frigates were modernized last year with new Radar & Phalanx systems to get ready for foreign sales.

You and your UH-1H were assigned to the new Hellenic Navy Frigate ARGO FFG-46 which was previously known as USS Rentz (FFG-46). The frigate is still operating under US flag until its crew completes its training to the new weapon systems.

Your Huey is getting refueled and ready for the exercise.

Mi-8MVT2 Oilfield Campaign by Laivynas
Life in civil aviation is far removed from dangers of military conflict. Instead, it’s based on strict time tables and lunch breaks.



Meet a group of old friends: captain Jury Maksimovich Protasov and his Mi-8MTV2 crew. After the events of the "Spring Tension" conflict, they are again in business together. However, this time they are gainfully employed as cargo transportation contractors, serving the interests of the oil industry.

Rather than combat, this campaign will test your knowledge of the Mi-8MTV2 navigation suite in order to locate oil derricks scattered over the forests. Challenge yourself as a cargo pilot and never have to worry about being shot at again!

Crew moto: “Not a day without drama!” (с) crew chief Andrey

Key Features:
  • Based on a real-life helicopter pilot missions
  • 16 full-scale missions
