Thanks to remind me about new pilot's suit.

New damage model is in production now. When the system itself will be ready we'll start to make new component models for every plane (WWII at least).
Great news.........

Very much looking forward to the new damage model.

One question Racoon if I may, will the Spitfire have the new component model on release or will that come at a later date and at the same time as the rest of the WWII fleet?

Lots to look forward to on the DCS WWII front then.......awesome news.

These little updates and snippets of info keep us going, many thanks for sharing what you can with us

It's complicated. We kept current DM for Spitfire just in case. New DM is too different from the current one. So I'm not sure would be fair to release only one plane with it. Or we should wait for simultaneous release of new DM for all 4 WWII fighters. Fortunately components model for new DM doesn't take long time to create.

Thanks for your answer, much appreciated.

I agree, makes much more sense to wait and have a simultaneous roll out of the new DM for all 4 fighters, that way no unfair advantages on either side.

Can we get a bit of insight on how the new damage model will differ from the current one? Or is that still top secret?

I think I must be dreaming. Woohooo!

Just the fact that it is currently in development is great. Fingers crossed that it is tagged as a high priority and won't get sidelined for other stuff

Thank you Racoon. That is great news. Much apreciated. Oh and I will allow myself to attach this link to my .50cal ammo research topic, maybe it can help with DM modeling in some way:

I agree that Damage Model should be given to all airplanes at the same time to create the sense of integrity and do not bring unneeded gaps in value, good step.

Thanks Racoon.

I hope that the WWII-centric 3rd Parties like VEAO are kept in the loop too. The DM updates will certainly apply to their aircraft (P-40F, Wildcat and Spitfire Mk XIV to name a few) as well.

I am sure they will, but will be up to 3rd Parties to apply as they see fit. Although I could see it becoming the standard for all if its as good as I hope it will be

First of all, we hope that undamaged FM of 3rd Parties will meet the requirements of DCS standards...

Yo-Yo has thrown down the gauntlet.

It's good to know that tenacity is still there. It sounds to me like the 3rd parties are doing their very best to rise to the occasion.
