New DCS: Normandy 1944 Map Videos
Although the Normandy map was built to support our growing line of World War II products, there is no reason it cannot also be used for the modern aircraft of DCS World. These two videos show one such example: an Su-25 attack mission.

These are un-edited looks at the Normandy map that we believe shows off the outstanding level of detail and the new lighting system.

Over the past few weeks we’ve released images and videos of several allied and axis tanks coming to the World War II Assets Pack. Today, we’d like to share some work-in-progress images of some of the new anti-aircraft units that are also coming to the Assets Pack.

DCS World 1.5.6 Update 2
In order to support the release of the new UH-1H: Argo Campaign, we are releasing the second update to DCS World 1.5.6. In addition to adding support for the campaign, this update also corrects the UH-1H CDI behavior, several fix to the L-39, and several other adjustments.

You can view the entire 1.5.6 Update 2 changelog here.


DCS: UH-1H Argo Campaign by 373vFS Greg



We are pleased to announce the release of the UH-1H: Argo campaign!

Purchase in DCS E-shop.



Preview by Mudspike.

UH-1H Argo, is a story driven campaign consisting of you in the role of an experienced Greek UH-1H pilot with many years of service in the Hellenic Army Aviation.
Recently you and a number of active Huey pilots are transferred in the Hellenic Navy.

The campaign starts on July 2017. NATO Exercise “Sea Breeze” is taking place once more in the Black Sea. This year, Georgia’s Batumi port is being used as a base for all the allied naval forces. The countries that participate in the exercise are Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Lithuania, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Ukraine, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.



One year after the US-led coalition’s operations in Iraq’s city of Mosul, Georgia accepted a large wave of refugees arriving through Turkey. NATO wanted to show its support by conducting the exercise in Georgian Territory.

For the needs of “Sea Breeze” exercise, Hellenic Navy's frigate ARGO FFG-46, sailed towards Batumi in order to provide support to the NATO Fleet and the rest of the Greek Forces.



Recently Greece successfully negotiated with the United States Government, about a military partially funded assistance program, which included the purchase of 4x retired Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates of the US Navy. The frigates were modernized last year with new Radar & Phalanx systems to get ready for foreign sales.

You and your UH-1H were assigned to the new Hellenic Navy Frigate ARGO FFG-46 which was previously known as USS Rentz (FFG-46). The frigate is still operating under US flag until its crew completes its training to the new weapon systems.

Your Huey is getting refueled and ready for the exercise.

Mi-8MVT2 Oilfield Campaign by Laivynas
Life in civil aviation is far removed from dangers of military conflict. Instead, it’s based on strict time tables and lunch breaks.

However, this time they are gainfully employed as cargo transportation contractors, serving the interests of the oil industry.

Rather than combat, this campaign will test your knowledge of the Mi-8MTV2 navigation suite in order to locate oil derricks scattered over the forests. Challenge yourself as a cargo pilot and never have to worry about being shot at again!

Crew moto: “Not a day without drama!” (с) crew chief Andrey

Default DCS World Weekend Update - 2 June 2017



DCS World 2.1 Update 1
Today we are releasing the first update to DCS World 2.1, which can include the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and/or the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map. Over the past week, we have been carefully noting all feedback and we will do our best to address all concerns. For this first update, we have made the following primary changes.

For following week, we plan to add several new DCS: World War II Assets Pack units including anti-aircraft units, beach fortifications, barrage balloons, and several others.

DCS World 1.5 Status
In parallel to DCS World 2.1, we are also creating the next update for DCS World 1.5. The primary addition will be the support for the DCS: World War II Assets Pack. This update will be coming soon.

DCS World War II News
With the Early Access, Alpha release of the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and the DCS: World War II Assets Pack, the team is very focused on moving these projects from Alpha to Beta, and then Beta to Final release as soon as possible. Our teams devoted to these projects are working hard and making great progress.

A big part of this effort is fleshing out the DCS: World War II Assets Pack. We have included some work-in-progress images of new Asset Pack units coming to DCS World: C-47, Ju-88, Sd.Kfz. 234/2 Puma, and Sd.Kfz.251.

We are also continuing to develop the P-47 and Me 262, as part of the original Kickstarter plan.

This is a huge year for DCS World War II that will continue to grow and improve as the year progresses.

WIP Screenshots

New Damage Model Update
In order to bring DCS World to a new level of combat simulation, an improved damage model system is certainly required. Our team has diligently been working on this new and improved system and it will entail the following features:
  • We have moved from tracking 30 damage variables to several hundred damage variables. This includes such variables as each airframe spars, engine components, fuel tanks, oil, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems, control surfaces, ammo boxes, etc.
  • All elements have unique durability values that are used calculate of bullet penetration into the structure
  • There will be no more statistical accumulation of damage, so for example, you can't tear off a wing by simply shooting at its tip
  • All elements can now be torn off by destroying their attachment points or airframe elements (wing spars for example)
  • Damage can be distributed from one element to another by fire
  • All liquids will flow out from holes, and this will result in decreasing effectiveness of hydraulic and pneumatic systems



We have attached images to better illustrate how we will track internal damage to an aircraft.
