Open Beta changelog

Added support of new DCS NS 430 Navigation System modules for SA-342 Gazelle

Introduced multi-crew for DCS UH-1H Huey.

Added the ability to play with multi-crew for the UH-1H. Up to four crewstation are available for cooperative play: pilot, co-pilot, left gunner and right gunner (if they are added in missions). Added multi-crew missions for the UH-1H helicopter.

Known Issues during playing with multi-crew:

  • Possible desynchronization of the state (visualization) of the helicopter in case of damage and when requesting ground power before engine start.
  • When leaving the crewstation of the left (right) gunner into the spectators and back, the gunner's body-model may disappear.
  • There may be problems in the cockpit with controls that have axis settings commands (knobs for adjusting the volume, setting the altitude, etc.), if the controls is intended for another crewstation.
  • There is no visualization of the cargo mark on the cargo indicator (cargo position display).

DCS World

  • AI vehicles. Added new MBT T-72B3, SPAAG ZSU-57-2, and APC BTR-82A.
  • Parking Position Numbers reversed at Tbilisi Lochini, this bug originates from 2012, please be aware of any changes this might make to existing missions.
  • Added modify coalition in mission editor (Thank you to Grimes and uboats, their mod is now no longer required if used).
  • AIM-120 AMRAAM active radar seeker bug fixing/improvements:
