DCS World

  • Removed: PPI for HQ7 LN
  • JTAC cant work with AV-8B AGM-65L (E2/L) - fixed.
  • Fixed some crashes.
    • Crash if AV-8B takes off from 071
    • Crash if player enters HQ7 STR PPI view
  • Campaigns. Fixed Stuck on mission with LoadMission trigger, when you cannot press the button End Mission.
  • Aircraft AI. AI Wingmen do not use BVR missiles - fixed.
  • Weapons. Corrected ranges of Kh-31P ARM missile and Kh-31A anti ship missile.
  • Weapons. AIM-120. Fixed tracking issues due to wrong reference range gate choice when target locked.
  • Beyond Visual Range (BVR) Combat AI Improvements:
    • Available BVR tactics and skill of execution is highly dependent upon AI Skill Level setting.
    • Added timer for missile evasive manoeuvres when notching. This better allows the AI to defeat a radar operating in Memory (MEM) mode.
    • AI will use airspeed and altitude based on Skill Level to optimise missile launch kinematics. It will try to be fast and high.
    • AI will maximise distance between aircraft and target at time of missile impact, based on Skill Level, by using offsets (crank) and reduced airspeed.
    • Based on Skill Level, AI will appropriately use lead, pure, and lag intercept geometry.
    • AI will use a low slice in an offset/crank manoeuvre to force an incoming missile into denser air, provide the AI more manoeuvrability, and force hostile radar into a look-down.
    • Based on Skill Level, AI will use different defensive manoeuvres such as look down clutter notch and reversal/extensions.
    • AI will randomly use the direction of offsets (cranks) and notches.
    • Use chaff  when the missile is 60 degrees off the nose. This allows the AI to use chaff more effectively when abeam of the threat radar.
    • Aircraft without radar guided missiles will not climb and accelerate to intercept the enemy.
    Note: Basic Fighter Maneuver (BFM) for jets improvements are planned for a June, 2022 update.
  • AI aircraft. Decreased ground impact probability into hard manoeuvring.
  • Su-34. KMGU-2 racks restored.
  • Graphics. MSAA x4 breaks secondary shadows - fixed.
  • Fixed crash during request if JTAC will be destroyed.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet by Eagle Dynamics

  • Fixed crashes/freezes  in avionics.
  • Added ACLS Missing 10 SEC cue.
  • Added Additional carrier data to the kneeboard - ATC frequency, TACAN and ILCS channel.
  • Added ACL T/C available with simple carrier.
  • Fixed: CMD CNT doesn't appear after coupling.

  • Fixed: Dropping PDLT lock doesn't remove TTL on HUD.

Note: Although additional Viper items have been completed like the Cruise DED page and the Expand function for the HSD and HAD pages, we did not have time to properly test due to the long holiday. These are planned for a June 2022 update.

DCS: AH-64D by Eagle Dynamics

  • Add TSD Threat Rings. Threat rings are based on hostile air defence units placed in the Mission Editor that are not “Hidden on MFD”. To display, select TSD SHOW at T3, COORD SHOW at T6, and then PLANNED TGTS/THREATS at L5. Yellow rungs indicate estimated detection range and red rings indicate estimated engagement range. When enabled, threats will also be listed on the COORD page, COORD list. 
  • Add KYBD Key-bind for Collective Tail Wheel Lock/Unlock.
  • Improved Velocity Attitude ude Hold mode (between 6 and 40 kts).
  • Initial work on Position (Hover) Attitude Hold mode (between 0 and 5 kts).
  • Fixed crashes/freezes  in avionics.
  • Fixed: Incorrect "Track Air Targets" translation in RU.
  • Fixed: EUFD brightness set before battery is turned on does not dim the EUFD.
  • Fixed: Desync after CPG left and join again to the slot.
  • Fixed: HAD Range Field Messages desync.
  • Fixed: HAD Weapon Inhibit Status Field Messages desync.
  • Fixed: Synchronisation of CPG's TSD map type and viewing range.
  • Fixed: Synchronisation of CPG's TSD map type.
  • Fixed: Synchronisation of CPG's RKT inventory choice.

Note: Although the Hellfire Ripple (RIPL) has been completed, we did not have time to properly test due to the long holiday. These are planned for a June 2022 update. Other items in development after June 2022 include 1st person pilot models, Target State Estimator (TSE), Altitude Hold, and Image Auto-Tracker (IAT). Following these, we plan to offer the DCS: AH-64D as part of the free Trial Program.

DCS: Mi-24P Hind by Eagle Dynamics

  • Added: Anti-torque pedals trim options Can choose between:

    • Automatic Microswitch Off (disables any automatic pedals microswitch logic, control is only manual)
  • Added: Anti-torque pedals microswitch button bind (this bind allows manual control of pedals microswitch which will set heading autopilot channel to standby/adjust mode while it is pressed)

    • Cyclic Trimmer Button (T) (Pressing Cyclic trim button will also trim virtual pedals axis, keyboard "T" by default)
    • Pedals Microswitch Button (Y) (Pressing pedals microswitch button will also trim virtual pedals axis, keyboard "Y" by default)
    • Do not trim (Will not trim virtual pedals axis, this is for pedals without springs etc. those which are stay where you left them)
  • Fixed: Map lighting switch is in wrong position when mission is start at night
  • Fixed: PU-38. Latitude knob does not change value when adjusted slowly
  • Fixed: Pilot-Operator's button for warning lights test does not work

  • Rotor damage shake effect continues after the rotor has stopped.
  • Rotors will not be visible for CPG when joining hot aircraft
  • Park brake stow and release individual binds are not functioning - use the combined stow/release

  • Improvements have also been made to the G-onset and Instantaneous Turn Rate. The G-onset is how fast the aircraft can generate G; previously, this rate was too slow. The ITR is the turn rate when the aircraft is either losing or gaining airspeed, rather than at a sustained airspeed. Please note that the ability of the aircraft to generate G highly depends on the aircraft’s weight, drag index, altitude, engine setting, etc.
