Default DCS World Weekend News - 3 June 2016



Warthog Deals
Despite being one of our oldest DCS World modules, our Warthog continues to still be one of our most popular. When paired with the new Nevada Test and Training Range map and the A-10C Red Flag campaign, it creates one of the most engaging flight simulation experiences you can have on a PC.

For this weekend, we have two Hog deals. They will start on 03 June 2016 at 1500 GMT and last until 06 June 2016 at 0900 GMT.


We’ve also included some of our favorite A-10C images.

DCS: F-5E Tiger II Preview Video

While Eagle Dynamics is primarily focused on DCS World 2.5, Spitfire, and F/A-18C Hornet, our friends at Belsimtek are busy getting the F-5E Tiger II ready for an Early Access release. The module has entered testing, and preparations for manual localization is underway. One of our German translators, Rakuzard, has created a couple preview videos of this new module:

Default DCS World Weekend Update - 24 June 2016



Nevada Map Bundle Deal Weekend!

As our first DLC map for DCS World, the Nevada Test and Training Range map has been a big success in both its popularity and its showcasing of new map technologies.

The Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) has the largest contiguous air and ground space available for peacetime military operations in the free world. 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 and the infamous Groom Lake AFB (aka Area 51). This map also includes the city of Las Vegas, McCarran International Airport, and Hoover Dam.

Once version 1.5.4 is released, we will be updating the Nevada map to take advantage of new Virtual Reality features and other improvements/fixes.

40% off bundles deals from Friday, 24 June 2016 at 1500 GMT to Monday, 27 June 2016 at 0900 GMT.

This Friday we hope to release 1.5.4 into the open beta. If after a week we see no blocking bugs in the 1.5.4 open beta, we will move it to the public build the following Friday. Once 1.5.4 is released to the public build, we plan to release the F-86F / MiG-15bis 3rd party campaign.

Following the update of DCS World 1.5, we will shift our focus back to DCS 2.0 for the next update.

Default DCS World Weekend Update - 22 July 2016



DCS: F-5E Tiger II by Belsimtek Early Access Available!


The DCS: F-5E Tiger II by Belsimtek Early Access is now available for download. You can purchase it from our DCS E-Shop


If you pre-purchased, please use the DCS World Module Manager to download and install your purchase.



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 server, 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 will be created while in Early Access
  • 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)

Default DCS World Weekend Update - 5 August 2016



The Museum Relic Campaign Now Available

“The Museum Relic” campaign is a story driven campaign that takes place between the two small fictional countries of Matova and Obristen. As their war stretches into its fifth year, both nations are feeling the strain of not being able to replenish their lost aircraft. You will fly as a character who, at the beginning of the war, was just a civilian. But after seeing the dire situation his country is facing, he decides to enlist in the Matova Army Air Corp. With his enlistment papers, he also brings with him his personal aircraft which he had donated to the Museum years ago.



Key Features of The Museum Relic Campaign:
  • Choose to fly the campaign as either the Mig-15bis or the F-86F
  • 22 story driven missions which will push your abilities in: high/low altitude and airspeed flight envelopes, aerial gunnery, ground attacks, and navigation
  • Each campaign has its own unique mission briefings, flight plan pages, and voice overs that coincide with the selected aircraft
  • Over 160 pages of mission briefings and flight plan pages
  • More than 400 custom voice overs by 17 different voice actors
  • Custom made livery for both the Mig-15bis and the F-86F

Download from: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.co...hop/campaigns/




Note: DCS: F-86F Sabre and DCS: MiG-15bis are required and are not included in this purchase.
