You can read the complete list of changes on the DCS forum

Su-33 for DCS World Released on Steam
Available on the DCS World Steam Store page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/223750/DCS_World/



The Su-33 has been the backbone of Russian aircraft carrier aviation since the late 1990s and is an all-weather fighter capable of engaging both air and surface targets. Based on the powerful Su-27 "Flanker", the Su-33 is a navalized version suited for operations aboard the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier. Changes to the Su-33 include strengthened landing gear, folding wings, more powerful engines, and the very visible canards.

The Su-33 is equipped with a powerful pulse doppler radar and an Infrared Search and Track (IRST) for engaging aerial targets with a wide range of radar- and infrared-guided missiles and its internal cannon. For air-to-surface attack, the Su-33 can be armed with many types of unguided bombs, rockets, and cluster munitions.
Despite its large size, the Su-33 is very capable in a dogfight when combined with its integral helmet-mounted sight and off-boresight missiles.

Key Features:
  • Professional Flight Model (PFM).
  • Virtual Reality supported.
  • Highly accurate and detailed external model and cockpit.
  • Wide range of air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons, including internal cannon.
  • Modeling of electronic countermeasures and radar warning receiver.
  • Realistic modeling of carrier landing approach system.
  • Detailed and accurate simulation of the wing control surfaces that include the leading and trailing edge flaps and the differential ailerons. In addition to the conventional differential stabilizers, canard behavior has also been improved for more realistic behavior. The Flight Control System (FCS) will automatically reconfigure itself depending on the flight mode.
  • Includes the wing-fold mechanism, reinforced landing gear struts, and the inclusion of high-gain nose wheel steering for use on crowded carrier decks.
  • Correct physics for the arrestor wire and its' interaction with the aircraft.
  • The engines have a "special mode" that adds up to 12,800 kg of thrust (instead of the normal 12,500 kg of thrust). This mode also includes realistic operating time restrictions.
  • Includes a special FCS mode used when aerial refueling. When in this mode and the control stick is released, the aircraft will automatically maintain level flight. This FCS mode allows fine-control and thus making it easier to make contact with the tanker within a pitch range of plus or minus 5 degrees and of a roll angle of plus or minus 10 degrees.
  • The Auto-Thrust Control (ATC) is used for automatic speed holding and can be fine-tuned with a set speed switch. This can be useful with landing on the carrier.
  • Inclusion of the automatic collision avoidance system ("Uvod" mode) that allows safe nap-of-the-earth flying.
Note: This is the exact same Su-33 that comes with DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3. As part of the DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 series, the cockpit is non-mouse interactive.

Project Updates
We’d also like to take this time to update you on a few of our projects:

DCS World 2.5
Work is going well with all content complete and all blocking bugs resolved! Work though continues on tuning the map and updating paid campaigns that need to be adjusted for the map changes. This primarily entails moving units out of the many new forested areas on the map. We want this move to DCS World 2.5 to be as bug-free as possible.



We have the holiday season fast approaching in Russia, and we need to give our staff time with their loved ones.

Given this, we will be releasing DCS World 2.5 by the end of January 2018. This is not an estimate, this is a promise.

DCS World 2.5 will be released as a new download (NOT an update to an existing version).
Modules under DCS World 1.5 and 2.2 will not need to be re-downloaded or activated. Just do not uninstall DCS World 1.5 and DCS World 2.2 Open Alpha prior to installing DCS World 2.5 Stable, as 2.5 will copy the modules over from 1.5 and 2.2. This should greatly reduce the amount of time to update to DCS World 2.5.

Any files in your Users/Saved Games folder will not be affected.
Movement of DCS World 2.5 would then soon follow to Steam.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet
We and Belsimtek have been working long hours to bring the Hornet to an Early Access release state. Over the past few months, a lot of our time has been devoted to modeling the many fundamental systems that comprise the aircraft like the engines, fuel, electrical, hydraulic, flight control system, and many others. We are now starting to see the fruits of this labor, as evidence of the recent Hornet preflight, startup, taxi, and takeoff videos.



Before we can release the Early Access version though, there are several important features we need to implement:
  • Weapon HUD modes
  • Moving map
  • Countermeasures
  • Radar Warning Receiver (RWR)
  • Inertial Navigation System for Waypoints
  • Flight Model
  • Further development of the air-to-air radar
  • Integration of new weapons
  • Improve some of the cockpit art, display fonts, and HUD projection effect
Once these items are completed, we plan to release the Hornet into Early Access and we believe it will be an amazing experience!

For Hornet news, please consult our FAQ and our Mini-Updates.

DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map



Our next combat theater map will be the Strait of Hormuz. All of the fundamental work on this map is complete and we are now tuning the elevation mesh, textures, and cleaning up bugs. We expect to release this map in the not-too-distant future and we believe it will be a great home for the Hornet and carrier operations!

DCS: Yak-52
As mentioned in an earlier newsletter, this will be an entertainment version of the Yak-52 we are developing for a commercial client. The Yak-52 will launch our new technology for radial engine dynamics which will provide a very realistic engine performance and management. This will be an extremely detailed and realistic simulation of the Yak-52 that will teach by-the-book training and aerobatics. Work is going very well and we are now focusing on the instrumentation and tuning the flight dynamics.



We’re sure this will be a great lead-in aircraft for new DCS World players and provide a great progression of Russian combat aviation.

Happy holidays,
The Eagle Dynamics Team

F-15C: Georgian War Campaign on Steam

The F-15C: Georgian War Campaign is now available on Steam at:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/223750/DCS_World/



"The Georgian War" is a fictional campaign created by Chris "Viper" Long and Baltic Dragon, and is inspired by real events that took place during the Russo-Georgian War of 2008.

This campaign puts you in the role of a pilot who arrives in Tbilisi as part of a small detachment intended to present the capabilities of the F-15C to the Georgian government, which has expressed interest in purchasing several airframes. You and your colleagues are caught by surprise when armed conflict breaks out. As the fighting escalates, your small group is drawn into the war.

Throughout the campaign's 16 missions, the authors recreate some of the real-life events that happened between the 8th and 13th of August 2008. The fictionalized events presented in this campaign are based on extensive research from numerous Western and Russian publications, interviews with people who were directly involved on both sides, and several visits to the ABL (Administrative Boundary Line) with South Ossetia. The campaign aims to capture the pivotal moments of the 2008 war from a military perspective.

Key Features:
  • 16 story-driven missions with some factual events from the 2008 Russo-Georgian war in the background
  • Historically accurate descriptions of the situation on the ground and on the front line for the specific date and time when the mission takes place
  • Extensive briefings based on real-life FRAGOs (Fragmentary Orders), as well as tactical maps
  • Over 1,500 custom voice-overs and thousands of triggers
DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 or F-15C for DCS World is required to play this campaign.

DCS: Yak-52 Update
Although the Hornet and DCS World 2.5 have been in the spotlight lately, the Yak-52 is making great progress and will introduce some great new technologies that will benefit the future of DCS World.
  • We are creating a new radial piston simulation engine from the ground up with a highly-realistic engine cooling model. This will have great benefits for future DCS aircraft like the P-47D Thunderbolt.
  • One of our staff members is also Yak-52 aerobatic pilot! We’ve had our flight engineers in the back seat to get the flight model and quirks of the aircraft just right.
  • A very important aspect of the Yak-52 are the flight dynamics and post-stall behavior. Our team has been making substantial progress to making our Yak-52 fly just like the real one, including edge-of and out-of-envelope maneuvers. She really will be a blast to fly!
  • We are also working to include cooperative multiplayer to allow both pilot and student in the same aircraft.
  • When played in VR, the detailed cockpit very much comes to life.

Default DCS World Newsletter - 9 February 2018



DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update
Last week we launched the Open Beta version of DCS World 2.5, and your initial reports have been very helpful for us to reach a high-quality release version. The team is working very hard to bring the DCS World 2.5 release version to you as soon as possible. We have been reading all your feedback and striving to address all valid issues.

Less than a week after the 2.5 OB release, we released a hot fix which you can read about on the forum in special thread

Earlier than initially planned, we also released the Open Beta of DCS World of 2.5 to Steam, which you can read about in the Steam news

DCS World 2.5 has been a significant advancement for DCS World and we are heartened by all the kind words of appreciation, thank you!

If you missed it earlier, here you can find the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta launch trailer video



DCS World Helicopter Sale
One of the biggest benefits of DCS World 2.5 is that it’s a much better environment to fly helicopters. The higher-resolution terrain elevation mesh, higher resolution terrain and object textures, much improved trees, huge forests, and trees that now have collision / block line of sight for weapons, all create a much more engaging and beautiful environment to fly in.



Starting today and lasting until 19 February at 0900 GMT, we are offering 30% off on all helicopters for DCS World!

Find these great deals on our e-Shop

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update
Progress on the Hornet is moving along quickly with much of the work focused on the air-to-air radar modes, defensive systems, INS waypoint navigation, and flight dynamics / Flight Control Computer. Our next Hornet academic video will instruct on Hornet TACAN and ADF navigation.

Pre-purchase now and save $20: DCS e-shop

New Rapier SAM Model
In addition to adding new units to DCS World, we are also busy updating some of the older units. Much of the priority is based on updating units that are operated by Iran… an important aspect of the new Persian Gulf map that is in late-development.

Here are a few work-in-progress of this unit that will also be playable via Combined Arms.

Default DCS World Newsletter - 16 February 2018



DCS World 2.5 Update
Since last week’s newsletter, the team continues to address items discovered during the Open Beta test period. Items such as fog discoloration, night lighting, multiplayer performance, load times, and others are all being addressed for the release version. It is very important that any changes made for the DCS World 2.5 release version maintain or improve game performance of the 2.5 Open Beta.

Since the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta release, we have released three Hot Fixes. You can read their change logs on the DCS forum

Once we feel that all the significant issues of the 2.5 Open Beta have been resolved, we will then release the DCS World 2.5 installer and update to DCS World 2.5.
