  • DCS: UH-1H Paradise Lost by Reflected Sims

DCS World

  • Voice chat feature is expanded to talks via radio for all human-controlled aircraft.
  • AA missiles. The Dynamic Launch Zone (DLZ) algorithm was updated for all modern aircraft. It provides much more accurate launch data, correct range dependence on launcher and target velocities, target aspect, and bearing. Added range limitation by battery life time.
  • AA missiles. Updated aerodynamics for R-33, Super-530D, R-550, and MICA missiles.
  • AA missiles. Updated targeting angles and FOVs for many A2A missiles.
  • AG delay-fuzed munitions. Corrected deceleration physics simulation after hitting a tree or penetrating an object; fixed issues with explosion effect positioning.

    • The channels all show up in the kneeboard and use the common DCS channel presets as default. 
    • Important note: Because channels Special 1-3 and EFGH have been left untouched in order to not break existing mission presets, some missions might have to update player/client aircraft to make the presets show correctly: Click on the player/client aircraft, cycle to AI and back to player/client, then resave the mission.
