4 sep

We are on track to release DCS: A-10C II Warthog and are currently working with operational pilots to ensure small adjustments are made to the Flight Model where required. See below for more information on the status of work in progress. 

We are doing our best to meet your highest expectations and intensive internal and external beta-testing is underway. Currently we are working on improvements to new weaponry (APKWS, laser-guided Mavericks and bombs). We are also working hard on all current bugs with scheduled fixes coming in further updates. 

In late 2014, DCS: MiG-21bis was the first third-party module released and remains one of the most beloved fighters in DCS World. We would like to share some of the great progress made to this wonderful module, especially in regards to DCS: Syria.

Most importantly a long awaited update to the cockpit mesh was finalised, which substantially improved the precision of cockpit geometry. This will be particularly appreciated by VR users.  

Visual improvements were followed by a new Flight Model as well as Avionics and Weapon System enhancements such as the recalibration of all the instruments.  Significant ground clutter causes performance degradation when the RP-22SMA radar is used in low level flight, this has yet to be resolved. Small corrections to the lift coefficient at lower Mach numbers were made. Structural damage caused by exceeding G-load limits is now dynamically calculated depending on aircraft weight.

The addition of navigation data for DCS: Syria has been added, as well as a number of new missions.  An overhaul of almost all air-to-air missiles is also in progress. 

We are experimenting with a more realistic rendering technology for the ASP gunsight and RP-22SMA radar.  Magnitude 3 has expanded the Leatherneck Simulation team who are now working on DCS: MIG-21bis, and two other projects...
