DCS World Weekend News

DCS: Normandy 1944 Map


Our map team is hard at work bringing the Normandy map to completion with most of the work focusing on bug clean up and tuning. We are getting close! Once the map is available for pre-purchase, we will announce the release date.

One question we often read about the Normandy map is if non-World War II units will work with it. It certainly will! In fact, we think many of you will find it an amazing map for helicopters and close air support aircraft in particular.

For this update, we’ve included several images of many modern day DCS World unit types in the Normandy map.









Also, the Normandy map live stream has had to be postponed to 4 March 2017.


A-10C: Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign on Steam

On 24 February, the A-10C: Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign will be released on Steam.



The A-10C Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification campaign puts you in the cockpit of an A-10C Warthog, and tests your ability to use the aircraft's weapon systems successfully.

Based on real world qualification requirements you will fly 10 performance check rides to execute against pre-defined performance objectives. If successful, you will rate a Qualified rating and proceed to the next performance objective.

The campaign covers a number of key areas including Air to Air Refueling Day and Night, Countermeasures and Threat Avoidance, Target Area Ingress Preparation, Illumination Flare Employment, Air to Air Gun and Missile Employment, Air to Ground Gun & Rocket Employment, Unguided and Guided Bomb Employment, and Missile Employment.

There are over 1200 voiceovers and over 206 pages of briefing material including the A-10C Amplified Checklist, Maps, Target Diagrams, and Mission Data cards.

Additionally, 10 Practice Missions are included so you can perfect your Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) prior to taking the qualification check rides.

Sincerely,
The Eagle Dynamics Team

DCS World 2.0.5 Update 1
Today we will be updating DCS World 2.0.5. The primary feature of this update includes the integration of Leatherneck Simulation’s DCS: AJS-37 Viggen into DCS World 2.0. A roaring Viggen down the Las Vegas strip is a site to behold!
In addition to the Viggen, this update also includes many new improvements. Please see changelog in the DCS forum.

DCS: Normandy 1944 Map Live Stream
We have decided it would be best to delay the live stream a bit to come very shortly after the start of the Normandy map pre-purchase and the release of the amazing trailer video that “Glowing Amraam” is working on. We feel the live stream and Q&A will be much more appropriate and useful after the pre-purchase beings.

Apologies for the delay.

DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and DCS: World War II Assets Pack available for pre-purchase

Pre-purchase Bundle Pack from DCS e-shop



Facebook

The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and DCS: World War II Assets Pack will be available for download by late May 2017.

The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map is centred on the World War II battlefield of Normandy, France and is specifically created to depict the period after the D-Day landings and the establishment of several allied airfields in Normandy to support the beachhead breakout in late June 1944. The map measures 267 x 348 kilometres and includes airfields in both Normandy and southern England. The map includes the famous D-Day landing beaches and the “Atlantic Wall”, rolling bocage fields of Normandy, large cities like Caen and Rouen, ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre, and 30 airfields. The map also includes multiple seasons and more detail and accuracy than any previous DCS World map by utilizing new map technologies.

A vital aspect of creating an authentic World War II battlefield is to populate it with matching artificial intelligence (AI) World War II assets. The DCS: World War II Assets Pack provides numerous World War II air, land and sea assets to populate the Normandy and other DCS World maps with.

Screenshots of DCS: WWII Assets pack

The DCS: World War II Assets Pack will continue to grow with DCS: Combined Arms compatibility and free asset additions.

The DCS: Normandy Map and the DCS: World War II Assets Pack will be available as a 20%-off, pre-purchase bundle for $47.99. Upon release in late May 2017, the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and DCS: World War II Assets Pack bundle will be sold for $59.99, and the stand-alone DCS: Normandy 1944 Map for $44.99 and the stand-alone DCS: World War II Assets pack for $29.99.
