NS 430 Update
In addition to the NS 430 GPS navigation and communication system being available as cockpit instrument for the Mi-8MTV2, we are now offering it as a cockpit instrument for the L-39 and as a 2D, mouse-interactive Pop-Op Window for most other aircraft. The 2D Pop-Up Window (not currently VR compatible) is available for all aircraft that don't already have a modern navigation and communication system. This allows you to use the NS 430 for many aircraft like all the World War II aircraft, Korean War era aircraft, Flaming Cliffs/MAC aircraft, and others.

This version is now available from our e-Shop for $10.99 USD.

As a special bonus to current owners of the NS 430 for the Mi-8MTV2, we are offering you the Pop-Up Window version for free!



In addition to the three separate NS 430 products (L-39, Mi-8MTV2, and Pop-Up Window), we are also offering two bundle deals:
Persian Gulf Map for DCS World Update
This week we launched our first major update to the Persian Gulf map! In addition to adding the large Iranian airbases of Shiraz and Kerman, it also greatly expands the map with a larger detailed area with higher resolution elevation and textures. Further, many new towns and cities have been added, the Gate Hotel in Dubai, as well as an expanded road and rail network in Iran.





This update brings the Persian Gulf map to almost the same size as the Caucasus map and provides many more gameplay options and a much larger battleground to fight in.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update
Also this week we added several new features and resolved several bugs for the Hornet. Highlights of this update include:
  • Aircraft no longer slide on the carrier deck, at any carrier speed.
  • STT track will not switch lock uncommanded.
  • RADAR SIL (radar silence) and STBY mode has been implemented.
  • RWR display logic has been further improved, with critical threat lines added.
  • Option on ME to select single or ripple release (was not in fact merged for last update)
  • DUD cue added for when HT or fuze setting is below current aircraft AGL.
  • RWS page SET and weapon and count added when a weapon is in priority.
  • Night Vision Goggles (NVG) added.
  • Instrumented Carrier Landing System (ICLS) added.
  • Landing gear drag lowered.
Many of these items are highlighted in the video



DCS: M-2000C – Red Flag Campaign

Now available on Steam

The M-2000C Red Flag Campaign is a story-driven campaign that takes place during an extraordinary Red Flag exercise at the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR). The campaign backstory revolves around growing hostilities between Iran and its neighbors and a partially successful coup that takes place in the United Arab Emirates, effectively splitting the country in two.

You will take on the role of a deputy commander of a 10-ship strong detachment of M-2000C interceptors from the 02.005 Fighter Squadron "Île-de-France". In preparation for war in the Persian Gulf, your detachment, and those from the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland and the Netherlands, will spend two weeks at the NTTR to hone your skills.

All of the missions are based on extensive research of actual Red Flag exercises and will each include interesting facts and stories from previous runnings of the exercise.
Features:
  • 16 story-driven missions
  • Over 3,000 voiceovers performed by more than 40 voice actors
  • Returning characters from the M-2000C Caucasus campaign

DCS World 2.5 Release Version Update
This week we moved a large number of improvements from the Open Beta to the Release version of DCS World 2.5. You can read the complete changelog here.

Highlights of the Release version update include:
  • All terrains updated with improved file structure and adjusted shaders. In particular, the detailed area of the Persian Gulf map was expanded north and east. This includes the airfields at Shiraz and Kerman, higher resolution terrain mesh and textures, new and improved shaders for trees, expanded road and rail network, new agricultural areas, and new towns and cities. While the detailed area of the map is now complete, we do plan to add additional airfields and landmarks within the area over the next few months. Additionally, we are working on new units to populate this map like the SS-1 “SCUD”, Rapier and SA-2/HQ-1/S-75 SAMs, and the HY-1 “Silkworm” anti-ship cruise missile.
  • Cloud ceiling now correctly matches Mission Editor settings.
  • Corrected Search and Engage AI tasks.
  • Many new features and fixes for the Hornet were added like network spawning on the carrier when catapult 1 is occupied, corrected uncommanded STT switching, added radar SIL mode, added single and ripple rocket pod settings in the Mission Editor, night vision goggles added, and the Instrument Carrier Landing System (ICLS) was added.
  • The AJS-37 has also seen many improvements like several crash fixes, adjusted RB-24J and 74 performance, added real-time mirror rendering, completed the manual, added rain drops on canopy effect, and greatly improved the night lighting.
  • NS 430 2D panel support added for all aircraft but A-10C, F/A-18C and Ka-50.
Next week, we will provide the next update to the Open Beta.

DCS: Yak-52 Update
Our Yak-52 is very late in development and in final tests. In addition to putting the flight model through its paces with the help of actual Yak-52 pilots, we are also fine tuning the interactive training missions. The Yak-52 will be released next month!



More WIP screenshots

Having direct access to a Yak-52 from “The First Flight” Russian close formation aerobatic display team, we’ve been able to model the aircraft in extreme detail and accuracy. One element of this is the sounds of the aircraft. On multiple occasions we have sent our sound team to a local airfield near Moscow to capture the cockpit and external sounds.

During one recording session, we recorded a video of it.


  • External sounds were captured at various engine RPM settings and from different microphone vantages such as all around the aircraft, fly by, passes at different altitudes, and aspect angles.
  • Inside the cockpit, the focus was also on engine RPM at various settings, but also on switch clicks, the pneumatics (landing gear, flaps, and brakes), canopy opening and closing, etc.

The sounds environment will be as if you were there in the cockpit!

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update
Each two week cycle we are adding more and more new features to the Hornet while addressing bugs as they pop up. Our current focus for the rest of July and next month is on the following:
  • Complete the AIM-7 with addition of FLOOD, Home On Jam (HOJ), and LOFT sub-modes.
  • Integrate AIM-120B/C for STT employment (TWS employment will come later).
  • Integrate AIM-9X Block I. This includes both flight dynamics and new tones. Afterwards, in August or September, we will add the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS).
  • Complete RWS air-to-air radar mode with such features as Non-Cooperative Target Recognition (NCTR), AACQ mode, Latent Track While Scan (LTWS) mode, Pulse Repetition Frequency (PRF) settings, ability to change radar settings with TDC along outside of radar tactical area, radar speed gate setting, COLOR option, and more.
  • Complete radar warning receiver functionality with contact symbols and modifiers, EW HUD, and the OFFSET function.
  • Integrate Paveway II series laser-guided bombs (GBU-10, 12, and 16) with JTAC designation.
  • Further tuning of flight model with touch and go performance, gear drag, half flaps drag, takeoff pitch characteristics, and extreme angle of attack performance.
  • Brightness control for the HSI display.
  • Multiplayer carrier deck spawning issues.
  • Wingtip vortices errors at low airspeed.
There are certainly more items that we will be addressing over the next month. This is just a list of 10 of them.

Since our last list of Hornet academic training missions in a newsletter, we have two more:

DCS: Yak-52 Now Available!



DCS: Yak-52 early access will initially be available as part of the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta.





The Yakovlev Yak-52 is a tandem seat, radial engine, trainer aircraft that served as the primary aircraft trainer for the Soviet Union and many other nations. Introduced in 1979, the Yak-52 has been a popular choice among air forces given its rugged construction, ease of handling, tricycle landing gear, and simple maintenance. These same characteristic have made it a popular civilian aerobatics aircraft in its later years.

The Yak-52 is powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, nine-cylinder radial piston engine with 360 horsepower. We have created a new radial piston engine simulation from the ground up with a highly-realistic engine cooling model. The aircraft is very response given an empty weight of just one ton and large controls surfaces. Capable of pulling over 7 G and pushing up to negative 5 G, it’s no wonder the Yak-52 has been popular with aerobatic teams around the world.





More screenshots

The DCS: Yak-52 provides a realistic pilot training progression from the Yak-52, to the L-39C jet trainer, to modern fighters like the MiG-29 and Su-27.

Purchase in DCS e-shop

Key Features:
  • Professional Flight Model that duplicates the flight characteristics of the Yak-52.
  • Detailed and realistic simulation of post-stall behavior that allows edge-of and out-of-envelope maneuvers.
  • Complete systems modeling of the Yak-52 that includes the engine, fuel, electrical and pneumatic systems.
  • Realistic, mouse-interactive cockpit in which almost all controls can be interacted with.
  • Accurate external and cockpit sounds that were recorded from a Yak-52.
  • Interactive training missions included. Learn to start up, taxi, takeoff, and land the Yak-52 like a real pilot.
  • Multiple liveries as both a military trainer and civilian aerobatic aircraft.
  • Cooperative multiplayer. Fly with a friend in the same aircraft.
  • Full virtual reality support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft Mixed Reality, and others.

  • Please see the complete change log here.

DCS: Mi-8MTV2 and Ka-50: Memory of a Hero Campaign
The Memory of a Hero campaign follows the story of helicopter pilot Sergey Pavlovich Borisov. Being an honored sniper and research helicopter pilot and a hero of the Soviet Union and Russia, this campaign explores his experiences in the Mi-8MTV2 and the Ka-50 Black Shark. The campaign is full of danger and exciting moments as you relive some of his more harrowing experiences!

Download from: www.digitalcombatsimulator.com

The campaign consists of more than 16 missions that include:
  • Work for a large Siberian transport airline
  • Transport workers and repair crews to oil deposits
  • Take part in the Abkhaz-Georgian war of 1993 while flying the then-secret Ka-50 attack helicopter
  • Participate in intelligence gathering activities over Georgian territory prior to the conflict in South Ossetia. Do so in concert with the help of special FSS equipment and direct support from the Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS)
  • Perform Ka-50 counter-terror operations in the southern Caucasus region and along the Georgian border
  • Take part in rescue operations over the Black Sea in an Mi-8MTV2
  • The action is told through a gripping story narrative with an original soundtrack by The Last Haven.





This campaign requires ownership of DCS: Black Shark 2 and DCS: Mi-8MTV2.


World War II Assets Update
In addition to the new aircraft we recently discussed, we continue to add new ground units. The next will be the Sturmgeschütz (Stug) III. The Stug III was a German assault gun and the second most produced German armor vehicle of the Second World War. Designed as an infantry support weapon with a 7.5 cm L/48 gun, it was built on the Panzer III chassis, but was also used as a tank destroyer.





Sincerely,
The Eagle Dynamics Team

DCS World Update
Last week we released DCS World Open Beta version 2.5.3.2115. Unfortunately, as an open beta, it introduced a crash when using module maps and some VR-related issues. This week we addressed these issues in the Open Beta; however, we will be unable to move this Open Beta version to the Release version this week. Today’s Release version update will correct the AGM-65E crash.

Thank you for your patience.

DCS: P-51D Mustang Update
The Mustang was our first World War II aircraft and was pivotal in laying the ground work for our later warbirds. Since its initial release though, our graphic technologies have greatly improved, and the Mustang is starting to show its age. As with other DCS World aircraft, we are dramatically improving both the cockpit and external model of the Mustang. Both will use Physical Based Rendering (PBR) and Deferred Lighting (DF) to radically improve the aesthetics of this iconic DCS warbird. This will be a FREE update to Mustang owners!

Today we have some work-in-progress images of the updated cockpit.





DCS: NS 430 Navigation and Radio System Available on Steam
Purchase on the DCS Steam page



The NS 430 GPS navigation system, is an optional add-on module for most DCS World aircraft. It provides powerful, yet intuitive, navigation and radio communications options to supplement the navigation and radio systems already integrated into your aircraft. The NS 430 is particularly useful for older aircraft with less sophisticated navigation and communication systems.

  • Added the Yak-52 to the Logbook.

Regarding the Hornet, it's important to note that we are now focusing on some of the more difficult and time-intensive tasks like making several fundamental changes to the air-to-air radar simulation (will have benefits with other modules), the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), and other systems we've touched on recently. As such, the number of new items for the Hornet will be less than before, but the same amount of attention and manpower is being devoted.

Ongoing DCS World Helicopter Autumn Sale Pack
Running now and lasting until September 30th, 2018, we are offering all four DCS World helicopters for just $69.99! Normally a $199.96 value; this is a 65% saving on each helicopter. DCS World offers some of the most realistic helicopter simulations available on the PC, and nothing compares to the helicopter combat environment that DCS World offers.



Coming with the DCS World Helicopters Pack is a special "four-in-one" mission - Helicopter Operations, which allows you to play all the helicopters on one battlefield. Depending on your helicopter choice, you will be tasked with what your helicopter can do best!
Blue side:
  • SA342 - destroy the advancing tanks (CAS).
  • UH-1H - bring on the sling load the ammunition for Bradley platoon, attack the command post.
Red side:
  • Ka-50 - destroy Bradley platoon (CAS).
  • Mi-8 - attack the checkpoint, take out the cargo on the sling load.

Jump into the cockpit and help the guys on the ground!

You can purchase from our e-Shop

We are also offering the same bundle sale from our DCS World Steam Edition page

Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer
Coming to DCS World as an AI-only ship unit, the Arleigh Burke is an American guided missile destroyer that forms the backbone of the US Navy surface fleet. Built around the SPY-1D multi-function Aegis Combat System radar system, the Arleigh Burke is armed to the teeth with surface-to-air, surface-to-surface, and anti-ship weapons and defense systems.

As we grow the naval aviation component of DCS World with the Hornet, Tomcat, and other future carrier-borne aircraft, the Arleigh Burke is a much-needed component to create a modern, realistic naval task force.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet, DCS: Persian Gulf Map, and Su-33 for DCS World Bundle Pack Announcement
Coming October 1st, 2018 and lasting until October 21st, 2018, purchase the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet, the Persian Gulf map, and the Su-33 together for just $89.99! This bundle has an almost $150.00 value.

DCS World e-Shop



The Persian Gulf map was in large part chosen to act as the setting for DCS: F/A-18C Hornet combat operations. Operate from numerous, detailed airfields in the UAE and Oman or from the deck of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. Conduct air-to-air and air-to-ground operations over a huge, detailed portion of southern Iran and many of the Persian Gulf islands. New additions coming to the map in time for the pack include the SA-2 and Rapier surface-to-air missile system, the HY-2 Silkworm anti-ship cruise missile, the Aldar Headquarters building, the Sheikh Zayad Grand Mosque, and oil platforms. More map items like new airfields, unique buildings, and weapons will be added after the Pack. The Su-33 adds a great adversary aircraft for the Hornet.

DCS World 2.5 Update
This week we updated the DCS World 2.5 Release version from the current Open Beta version.
  • Corrected inaccessible controls when using 4K display.
  • Addressed an intermittent multiplayer host crash.
  • Fixed a crash related to multi-monitor use.
  • Corrected VR issues related to 4K monitors and cursor scale.
  • Aircraft carrier catapult adjusted for low-temperature conditions.
  • Added a work-in-progress update to properties of Medium and High PRF radar emission. There is a known issue with Medium PRF with high-aspect targets.
  • Hornet ACM boresight mode extended to 10 nm.
  • Corrected UH-1H glass transparency.
  • Numerous AJS-37 fixes and improvements.
  • Added the Yak-52 to the Logbook.
Our primary focus of the Hornet is currently a re-coding of the air-to-air radar to make it more effective and realistic. Updating the radar is not a simple task, but we will release into a later Open Beta as soon as possible.

Full changelog you can see in the dedicated thread on the DCS forum.
