Our current helicopter focus is on the updated Ka-50 for DCS: World Black Shark and DCS: Mi-24P Hind. Both projects are progressing well.
The Ka-50 update will consist of new functions such as Igla air-to-air missiles and missile warning systems with infrared missile jamming systems in addition to a substantial graphics overhaul. While new cockpit functions will be part of a paid upgrade, the entirely new and improved cockpit and external model will be available for free. In addition to a graphics overall and new features, we will also take this opportunity to clean up any remaining bugs in the Ka-50.Screenshots:
The Mi-24P is the next helicopter we are bringing to DCS World, created by the same the same team behind the DCS: Mi-8MTV2. This iconic attack helicopter will feature both front and back seat cockpits (including network and coop play). We are confident that it will be the most realistic simulation of the Mi-24P ever created and will add more outstanding game play for DCS World.
This summer we plan to release a major update to the DCS: World War II assets pack. One of these new units will be the Sd.Kfz.184 Elefant. The Elefant was a heavy tank destroyer of the German Wehrmacht in World War II, and it was an updated and improved version of the Ferdinand tank destroyer. Armed with an 88 mm L/71 gun and heavy frontal armor, the Elefant scored a 10 to 1 kill ratio against enemy armor.
All Assets Pack amour vehicles are being upgraded with accurate gunsights and controls to be compatible within Combined Arms.
Due to a third-party module not being quite ready in time to make the Open Beta 2.5.5 release this week, we have to push 2.5.5 to next Wednesday, 5 June. We apologize for the delay. We hope you will enjoy the Open Beta update that will include VR optimization for the Caucasus and Persian Gulf maps, as well as AGM-154 JSOW for the Hornet.
