Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

The latest DCS version has been released and we encourage you to update your build to enjoy the enhancements and bug fixes! A cool new visual addition is the introduction of physics-based visual blast effects on ground units and vegetation. Voice chat enhancements include separate input layers for each Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft and a Forced PTT mode for intercom use. Improvements were made to a wide array of game elements such as weapon systems, Mission Editor functionality, and multiplayer. 

We’re excited to bring you some fresh development screenshots for new DCS World War II aircraft and aircraft carriers. In parallel with the work on the European World War II theater, we are creating an exciting DCS 1944 Pacific Theater of Operations. This will include the Marianas of the era, a large number of new AI aircraft, naval units, and ground units. 

The new DCS: Mi-24P OUTPOST Campaign by Stone Sky is now available in the latest DCS version. This campaign features 15 gripping missions based on true stories. It includes over 100 maps and briefing pages.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics

WWII Pacific

Development progress

F - 2

USS Enterprise (CV-6) Aircraft Carrier

The big “E” is known as one of the most storied aircraft carriers of World War II. From its distinct structure to its bustling flight deck, we are meticulously crafting every detail to recreate the experience of being aboard this legendary vessel. 

F6F Hellcat

The Hellcat is progressing well with the Flight Model receiving a lot of attention. The external model details are being polished with various liveries being created for the launch. The Hellcat was by far the most successful U.S. Navy fighter type of the Pacific Theatre of Operation with the F6F accounting for 5,163 kills or 56% of all aerial victories recorded by the USN and US Marines in WWII. Its effectiveness was outstanding with an overall 19:1 kill to loss ratio.

Marianas WWII

A substantial amount of work is also being made to the free DCS: Marianas WWII map. In addition, an array of other US Navy and Imperial Japanese surface warfare vessels and ground units are in progress too. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
