  1. 1. Checking interest on DCS: IADS (Integrated Air Defense Network)



Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

We have been approached by a new 3rd Party, a radar technology company, who would like to gauge the interest in a DLC to allow you to build, command and manage an Integrated Air Defense Network.

 

Features considered right now would be the following:

 

  • Real-world limits: delays in communications, ambiguous radar contacts, level of training, fatigue
  • Build the IADS network in the Mission Editor
  • Automatic or pre-set reactions to threats and air attacks
  • Rules of Engagement, No-Fire sectors
  • Logistic component (ammunition replenishment) management
  • Ability to fight against the IADS or command it (like the Combined Arms)
  • Monitor the network and Issue commands in real-time via a dedicated interface
  • Act as a General commanding the Air Defence in whole or commander of a specific military unit (platoon, battery, battalion, regiment)

 

* Please note the features are not final and subject to change.

 

The purpose of this poll right now is simply to see if people would be interested in a paid DLC/module for something such as this.

 

Yes = Yes I would be interested in paying for such a module/DLC

No = I have no interest in paying for such a module/DLC

 

Thanks!

The ED Team

Added Feedback from the Team today August 28th:

We will have an internal discussion about this topic next week but for now, some things I can tell right away:

 

· There would have to be some DCS Core functionality to integrate our module seamlessly. My idea was to go the same way as the Supercarrier module.

 

  • IADS network could be auto-generated by just pressing the button in the Mission Editor (pre-defined or user-defined rules) – this would be available to everybody.
     
  • The ability to build the network would be part of the DCS, as well as necessary functional links.
     
  • Everybody would be able to build and fight the IADS, but only the module owners could run the Command & Control Interface and interact with it. In other words:
    • everybody will be able to generate or build it
       
    • everybody will be able to see it
       
    • everybody will be able to suppress or destroy it
       
    • only the module owner will be able to issue commands and control the network and the units.

 

· Basics of Electronic Warfare – different types of jamming and its effects (simulation). Given the overwhelming complexity of the topic, we are considering to do it as a separate module. More info will follow.

 

· We will not simulate the individual SAM systems or units – not enough publicly available information (besides, it would be incredibly boring, by our opinion). Our idea is to simulate an Air Defense system as a whole.

DCS: Sam Simulator would also be a dream like as long as it integrates with core sim seamlessly and doesn't split the MP part

All the people keep asking for capabilities to be modelled.... I want the limitations to be modelled.... limitations make for realistic simulation.

 

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a bit you realize the pig likes it.

No, I'm more interested on learning to fly aircrafts and helicopters.

 

However, a DLC I would love to purchase is a Cold War Assets Pack, with ground and naval units from the 1950-1970 period, priced on the same range as the WW2 Assets Pack. I also would purchase a Map set in Korea 1950-55.

Mobile: iPad Pro 12.9" of 256 GB

Absolutely yes.

However, it would make more sense to have it integrated into Combined Arms but I do not know what that would mean for those who do not own combined arms.

It's kind of a tough question. Some of this stuff does seem cool and I would pay for it, but there should be much better standard IADS modelling in DCS and it shouldn't be part of a paid module.

 

I think DCS should have better IADS modelling in the base game. running it as a commander maybe a dlc? but I don't think players should have to pay for IADS AI.

Needed however its got to be said that many aspects of this should be part of Combined Arms, which needs a major overhaul - starting with VR support so at least when you look left it doesn't turn to the right etc.

 

Build the IADS network in the Mission Editor

Automatic or pre-set reactions to threats and air attacks

Rules of Engagement, No-Fire sectors

Logistic component (ammunition replenishment) management

Ability to fight against the IADS or command it (like the Combined Arms)

Monitor the network and Issue commands in real-time via a dedicated interface

Act as a General commanding the Air Defence in whole or commander of a specific military unit (platoon, battery, battalion, regiment)

 

IADS should be part of the base game, along with ROE and reactions to threats, let alone even CA payware and definitely not 3rd party additional payware ontop of CA, given that you want to provide a Digital Combat Simulator of Air and Ground.

 

As for the other aspects i'm struggling to find an argument that says they don't fall within the remit of combined arms and a "tactical commander" role within CA to be honest.

 

But in answering the initial question is this functionality required - absolutely, but common ED this should be in house code and possibly Combined Arms. Your now talking about a 2 tier experience for IADS, those that have the base game and those that do not. This would also be an issue for MP no doubt. IADS and ROE is like a foundation for the product, not a bolt on. Surprised you're entertaining the idea that this be sub contracted out as payware its pretty fundamental concepts.
