The "DCS: A-10C Warthog" Patch 18.104.22.168 is now available for download. Unlike some of our past product patches that were very large and too often took a long time to create, for A-10C will create smaller patches at more regular intervals. This also reduces the chances of new bugs being introduced.
This first patch includes what we could resolve over a two week period. We fully understand that there are still outstanding bugs and the legitimate ones will be addressed in later patches. We simply could not resolve all of them in this first patch. Please have patience as your personal pet peeve bug is resolved.
