Default DCS World Weekend News - 16 December 2016



Early Access Release of DCS: Spitfire LF Mk. IX
Today we are proud to bring you the Early Access Spitfire LF Mk. IX! Many pilots that have flown several World War II warbirds remark that the Spitfire was their favorite, based on its exceptional maneuverability, easy of flight, and stunning looks. We think that you will agree!

You can purchase the Spitfire from our e-Shop



The British Spitfire is one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of World War II. Most 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 Spitfire LF Mk. IX was originally developed as a stopgap measure as a response to the appearance of the Focke-Wulf FW 190A.

Screenshots

The Spitfire LF Mk. 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.

Note: To coincide with the Early Access release of the Spitfire, we are also releasing Update 3 to DCS World 1.5.5.


Weekend Bundle Deals
The Spitfire LF Mk. IX most shines when played with the other aircraft of our World War II stable of aircraft. Starting today at 1500 GMT and lasting until 19 December at 0900, get the P-51D, Fw 190, and Bf 109 as a bundle for 50% off! A huge savings!



Find the bundle here on our e-Shop

The Museum Relic Campaign News
Due to popular demand, we are removing the requirement that both DCS: F-86F Sabre and DCS: MiG-15bis must be purchased in order to play this campaign. We are changing this requirement such that only one of these aircraft modules must be purchased to play this campaign.



Purchase the campaign in DCS e-shop

The AJS-37 Viggen is a Swedish double-delta supersonic attack aircraft from the late Cold War. It was the backbone of the Swedish Air Force during the Cold war, serving as the main attack and anti-ship platform. The AJS is the 90’s upgrade of this 70’s era aircraft, adding several advanced weapons and systems functionalities. The aircraft was designed around the pilot, with an excellent man-machine interface, supporting the pilot through the smart use of autopilot systems, radar and HUD symbology in order to deliver the ordnance onto targets from treetop level with high speed attack runs.

The aircraft is armed with multiple weapon systems ranging from programmable stand-off weapons such as the RB-15F antiship missile to the BK90 Cluster munitions dispenser to various bombs, rockets and missiles for a wide range of target types. The aircraft can also carry gun pods and the Sidewinder series of infrared-guided missiles for air defence and self-protection purposes.

DCS: World War II, a Year in Review and Looking Forward
As 2016 closes, we are looking back to what we have done during the past year and reveal some of plans for 2017.

We completed several new tasks in 2016 for DCS:WWII. This included the official release of DCS: Bf 109 K-4, which was preceded by extensive work on flight model, skins, and training missions. We also added two FW 190 D-9 rocket types for air-to-air and air-to-ground missions.



The main event this year though was the Early Access release of DCS: Spitfire LF Mk. IX. The huge project to recreate this legendary British fighter included the virtual reconstruction of the external model, cockpit, systems and flight dynamics. We are proud to add this to our stable of DCS World War II aircraft. In 2017, our Spitfire work will continue with bug fixes and the addition of bombs and an external fuel tank.

Our next big World War II event will be the Early Access release of the DCS: Normandy 1944 map in the 1st quarter of 2017. The postponement of this release was the result of two primary factors:
  • DCS: Normandy 1944 will be the first DCS World map to use our new lighting system. As a result, we have had to remake all landscape textures and objects. This has been a massive task, but we believe it will be worth the time and effort.
  • As our first map for DCS: World War II, a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating many new period objects like tanks, trucks, air defense units, trains, ships, and AI bombers. We are also creating many objects that make up the “Atlantic Wall” along the Normandy coast. We believe these objects are essential for making great missions.

We hope these efforts will bring DCS: World War II to new level for us.



We are also still working on other previously announced features:
  • New aircraft damage model systems. This new system will be based on a much more precise system of positional agregats within an aircraft structure such that it will give players a new level of realistic air combat damage modeling- especially with machineguns. Because this system will dramatically change simulation balance, the system will be released for all World War II planes simultaneously.
  • Unpaved airfields. This feature will provide the ability to place additional, small airfields on flat ground surfaces via the Mission Editor. Such airfields were used by all sides in World War II for refuelling, emergency, and dummy airfields.



This is only a small part of our plan for 2017. Our goal is to create an entire World War II environment for our warbirds which will continue our strategic goal of creating an air combat simulation that spans the world and across the decades. Strap in!


Happy New Year!
The Eagle Dynamics Team

A-10C: Stone Shield Campaign Available
The A-10C: Stone Shield campaign is a story-driven campaign that puts you in the cockpit of an A-10C Warthog as a USAF pilot assigned to the 445th Air Expeditionary Wing. In 2015 Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Russia have announced the start of the “Caucasus-2015” military exercise. Intelligence analysis later reveals that the exercises is actually cover for Russia forces repositioning to the Abkhazian territory and further escalating tensions in the Caucasus region. The 445th Air Expeditionary Wing and the 6th mechanized brigade have been deployed to Georgia as a response by NATO to counter Russia’s military aggression against its peaceful neighbor.

Default DCS World Weekend News - 17 February 2017



Normandy 1944 Map Update
When we started the DCS World War II series, we realized that one of the most important aspects of the series will be a great set of period maps to support the aircraft. Our first effort in this direction has been the Normandy 1944 map. Although originally scoped to just include the immediate area around the Normandy landing areas, the product has grown based on customer feedback and to create a great single player and multiplayer environment. This has taken the us in the following directions:



While not planned from the start, we have now added a portion of southern England, directly opposite of Normandy. This area includes the RAF airfields of Tangmere, Ford, Chailey, Funtington, and Needs Oar Point. While not at the detail level of Normandy, we believe these airfields will add valuable gameplay options.

Another map task we are working on is the inclusion of Le Havre city and port and providing all the cities and towns many types of every-day objects to make the urban areas look lived-in. This includes cars, carts, bicycles, tractors, laundry lines, etc. Along the Normandy coast, our team is also creating the “Atlantic Wall” with coastal batteries and pill boxes.

The team is also working realistic road and rail traffic that includes the option for period trains and auto-generated road traffic. In addition to the map, a very important aspect to create an immersive experience is to have the option to populate it with period air, land, and sea units. Many such units are being created now, and one of these new units includes the AI B-17G bomber. We are happy to share the first images of the B-17G in the game. Inclusion of the B-17G will provide more interesting gameplay options for the P-51D and Fw 190 D-9.





More screenshots

The Normandy 1944 map is rapidly coming together and we hope to have it in your hands soon. To give you a preview and answer questions you might have about the map, we will be broadcasting a live stream video of the Normandy 1944 on 25 February. Please find the details here: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=183172
