Open Beta changelog

Early Access Launch of the DCS: F-15E by RAZBAM

DCS: F-15E Top Tips

  • Radar channels are modelled, so if in MP all are close together and on channel A, then they will see interference that looks like jamming on the radar - they need to deconflict channels.
  • PACS - All none smart weapons have to be manually input into the jet on each in game rearm. 
  • Mic switch needs to be set to "on" to communicate with ground crew - default it is off.
  • A/P button on the UFC keypad not only shows the autopilot menu, but also enables autopilot. If they want to just look at the menu, then use the UFC PB9 from the main menu.  (This is correct behaviour)
  • LANTIRN pod will prohibit laser use above 25kft - intended behaviour.
  • LANTIRN Pod has only FLIR function, no CCD/TV.
  • There is an option in F-15E special options to set how many processor cores are used for the radar - adjusting this will help with FPS issues.
  • Cold Start - Apply the parking brake before setting INS to ALIGN, otherwise the process may fail. Avoid rearming whilst alignment is in progress.

DCS: F-15E by RAZBAM - Known Issues

  • Bombs dropped in AUTO mode can land long of target for wings level release. It is recommended to do a dive bombing for improved accuracy.
  • CBUs can open prematurely, specially if dropped above 1500 ft AGL
  • HUD Repeater in MPCD sometimes not visible
  • MFD exports not yet implemented
  • Volume control for TEWS & TACAN WIP
  • WSO HOTAS commands WIP
  • AA/AG Gun piper aims high.
  • Some items on UFC not synced between front and back cockpit - WIP
  • Cockpit Mirrors not symmetrical
  • Rear cockpit MFD displays cannot be programmed.
  • It is not possible to change the GBUs laser code with the kneeboard.
  • Sometimes PACS does not automatically recognize a weapons load. It must be manually entered.
  • GUARD is not monitored when selected in the Presets and active mode is Manual Frequency
  • Using AG Radar HRM mode can cause a drop in FPS during the image digitalization phase. This depends on the running computer specs.
  • Very Rarely, when using AG Radar, DCS will freeze for a second while checking the terrain. This depends on the running computer specs.
  • It is recommended to use the AG radar with DCS MT.
  • AI wingmen will attack with gun only despite having more relevant ordnance.
  • Dumping fuel will cause fuel totalizer to read 0.
