Question Any Planes with ILS capability?

random question, but was wondering if any of the modules allowed for ILS capability (autopilot or otherwise) similar to most modern planes?

i noticed most of the Caucuses airports had ILS beams. thanks!

A-10, F-15, F-16, UH-1H all have ILS capabilities. The F/A-18C has the ICLS (carrier based ILS).

The russian jets from the Flaming Cliffs pack as well as the MiG-21 also have the russian version of ILS.

I might be missing some, but yeah... most aircraft do have that ability

Landing an F16 using the ILS from 10 miles out and 3000ft in blind conditions....



And using Tacan to get to 10 miles out at 3000ft aligned with the runway before hand....

The C-101, L-39, Tomcat and Viggen also have an ILS. I imagine the Mirage and Harrier have one too, but I don't have those modules.

Full fidelity (non-Flaming Cliffs) models with ILS:
  • A-10C
  • AV-8B (sort of; the AWLS channels are mapped to ILS frequencies through some .lua file)
  • C-101
  • F-16C
  • JF-17
  • Mirage 2000C
  • UH-1H

Other ILS equivalents:

  • AJS-37: TILS
  • F-14: ICLS
  • F/A-18C: ICLS
  • Mig-21: PRMG
  • L-39C: PRMG

To add on, I don't think any of these aircraft have autopilot ILS approaches that I'm aware of. The F-14 has an automatic carrier landing system using the ICLS but I think that's it.


I'm sure new planes like the F-35 have these autopilot systems but everything we have in DCS (except for the JF-17 I guess) was designed in the 80s or earlier.

The F/A-18 has ACLS too, although it isn't implemented yet.

Don't be too sure. Last time I checked someone in the U.S. Navy is emotionally incapable of understanding how anyone might need a precision approach system during inclement weather and ILS is still not installed on Navy aircraft. I suspect the F-35 has the same problem.


It's a bit of a testament to Naval Aviators more of them haven't died. I fear a few will have to before Congress asks the Navy why something as basic (now days) doesn't seem to exist on modern, mega-million dollar aircraft.
