Ground Controlled Approaches?

Recommended Posts

Since we get the new clouds pretty soon, I asked myself how to get below them in a non-ILS-equipped aircraft, like e.g. the Hornet or the Tomcat. Therefore, I wondered if it would be technically possible to have ground controlled approaches (GCA) or precision approach radar (PAR) approaches in DCS? And, of course, if the answer to that question is "yes", I am curious if such a feature is somewhere on an Eagle Dynamics to-do list 🙂


Thanks in advance,

+1 we have a pretty amazing RSP-7 PAR vehicle already present at every airbase in the Caucasus map, but is completely non-functional (aside being animated) eye-candy.


We also have the DRL-7 which is a more appropriate ASR than the P-37; both also present at most/all airbases in the Caucasus, as well as related equipment like generators and communications antennae as well as the PRV-11 HFR. All superbly modelled (for their age at least), but all non-functional, serving no practical purpose in DCS (though all are animated, at least where applicable).

Modules I own: F-14A/B, F/A-18C, Supercarrier, F-16CM, AJS-37, F-5E-3, MiG-21bis, Ka-50, A-10C (+ A-10C II), UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, P-47D, P-51D, FC3, MiG-15bis, Yak-52, CA, C-101, Hawk

Terrains I own: Syria, The Channel, SoH


System (RIP my old PC): Dell XPS 15 9570 w/ Intel i7-8750H, NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti Max-Q, 16GB DDR4, 500GB Samsung PM871 SSD (upgraded with 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD)
