  • Altitude difference is correctly updated now when a target is tracked.
  • Radar strobe is now positioned at the last known target azimuth/range when the target track was lost.

  • Fixed radar antenna orientation when scanning with nonzero delta elevation set.
  • Fixed 1 line scan antenna orientation.
  • Adjusted antenna local scan origin position.

FM and systems:

  • Landing light state and retraction now depend on landing gear state.
  • AoA indicator was calibrated.
  • FM adjustments:
    • Reduced aoa at which the first stall effects appear.
    • Induced drag now does not take horizontal stabiliser downforce into account.
    • Increased flap efficiency.
    • Reduced induced drag near transonic speeds.
  • Extended range at which vibrations occur to include low G and high AoA situations.

  • Adjusted the strength and velocity of the anti-slip system.
  • Engine starter damage is now repaired.
  • Solved problem with aircraft oscillation on the ground with wind.
  • Complete autopilot rework (BIP trim fix will be included in next update):
    • AP is now less aggressive in altitude hold mode.

Weapons:

  • AIM-9B, -9J, -9P missiles now have a specific “growl” sound.
  • Fixed a bug in audio volume control of some AIM-9 versions.

Optical Sight and radar:

  • Implemented Optical Sight target range display (except gun 600 m fixed range option) on the heading/range scale.

It works as follows:

Gun:

  • target locked and the range > 3.5 km → range in NM
  • target locked and the range < 3.5 km → range in hectometers

Missile:

  • radar strobe position in NM with no radar lock (34 NM max)
  • target locked and the range > 3.5 km → range in NM
  • target locked and the range < 3.5 km → range in hectometers
  • The gunsight target range is fed now by the radar tracked target range (GYRO-ANT switch is still WIP, i.e. the gunsight always operates in GYRO mode).

  • Adjusted gyro (A/A) gunsight dampening constant.
  • Implemented Optical Sight time/velocity scale display logic:
    • when no radar lock → the scale is hidden (V symbol is in view)
    • with A/A gun selected → target relative velocity
    • with R550/SW missile selected and in (C + M or SW) R mode → target aspect angle
    • with R530 missile selected → missile flight time (time computation logic is WIP)
  • Target range provided by the radar to the gunsight is limited to 300-1600 m.
  • Gyro gunsight now accounts for the target range rate. The rate is set to 0 when the target is outside of the 300-1600 m range window.
  • Radar is now correctly initialised to search mode, according to cockpit switches positions, if its power switch was cycled OFF and ON while tracking a target.
  • “ANTENNE” (“ANT” aka “blind shooting”) gunsight mode is implemented.

Introduced DCS: Black Shark 3 by Eagle Dynamics!

The main goal is to give the already well-known Ka-50 attack helicopter new features which expand the gameplay.

Key features:

  • A Missile Warning System for warning about the launch of missiles at a helicopter has been developed.
  • The possibility of using Air-to-Air Igla missiles has been implemented.
  • A realistic model of an Inertial Navigation System has been developed, which has the properties of a real one: it requires alignment before the flight and accumulates an error. The error of INS coordinates can be fixed in flight by previously assigned landmarks as fixpoints.
  • New, more accurate and detailed 3D helicopter model using modern technologies and materials.

Introduced new campaign:

  • DCS: F/A-18C Rise of the Persian Lion II Campaign by Badger633

Weapons:

  • Fixed a bug in audio volume control of some AIM-9 versions.

Optical Sight and radar:

  • Implemented Optical Sight target range display (except gun 600 m fixed range option) on the heading/range scale.

It works as follows:

Gun:

  • 300 m with no radar lock
  • target locked and the range > 3.5 km → range in NM
  • target locked and the range < 3.5 km → range in hectometers

Missile:

  • radar strobe position in NM with no radar lock (34 NM max)
  • target locked and the range > 3.5 km → range in NM
  • target locked and the range < 3.5 km → range in hectometers
  • The gunsight target range is fed now by the radar tracked target range (GYRO-ANT switch is still WIP, i.e. the gunsight always operates in GYRO mode).
  • The heading/range scale now displays a fixed 600 m range when the “Cannon 300/600” button is kept pressed, and there is no target tracked by the radar.
  • The “(C + M or SW) R” button now switches the Optical Sight to “A/A cannon” mode with short range missiles status displayed.
  • The gunsight reticle diameter is now set to 20 mrd, when the radar tracks a target. The “Cannon 300/600” button reverts it to 40 mrd diameter, while kept pressed.
  • The A/G sight is now a fixed depression sight. The selected manual depression doesn't affect A/A gunsight anymore.
  • Adjusted gyro (A/A) gunsight dampening constant.
  • Implemented Optical Sight time/velocity scale display logic:
    • when no radar lock → the scale is hidden (V symbol is in view)
    • with A/A gun selected → target relative velocity
    • with R550/SW missile selected and in (C + M or SW) R mode → target aspect angle
    • with R530 missile selected → missile flight time (time computation logic is WIP)
  • Target range provided by the radar to the gunsight is limited to 300-1600 m.
  • Gyro gunsight now accounts for the target range rate. The rate is set to 0 when the target is outside of the 300-1600 m range window.
  • Radar is now correctly initialised to search mode, according to cockpit switches positions, if its power switch was cycled OFF and ON while tracking a target.

3D model:

  • Updated 3D model for those users who wish to make their own livery textures: Added custom arguments for parts of each Mirage F1 version. (Arguments 985 to 993 defined in description.lua. Check also Model Viewer).

  • Added jamming targets to JESTER STT options. 
  • NEW: Added new list of set commands for JESTER to be used in the Mission Editor.
