Announcing DCS: Yak-52

We are pleased to announce a new DCS World aircraft that is currently well into development: the Yakovlev Yak-52. This is an outgrowth of a professional, training project that we are also bringing to you.

The Yakovlev Yak-52 is a tandem seat, radial engine, trainer aircraft that served as the primary aircraft trainer for the Soviet Union and many other nations. Introduced in 1979, the Yak-52 has been a popular choice among air forces given its rugged construction, ease of handling, tricycle landing gear, and simple  maintenance. These same characteristic have made it a popular civilian aerobatics aircraft in its later years.

Powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, nine-cylinder radial piston engine with 360 horsepower, the aircraft is very response given an empty weight of just 998 kg and large controls surfaces. Capable of pulling over 7 G and pushing up to negative 5 G, it’s no wonder the Yak-52 has been popular with aerobatic teams around the world.

The DCS: Yak-52 provides a realistic pilot training progression from the Yak-52, to the L-39 jet trainer, to modern fighters like the MiG-29 and Su-27.
