22 September 2023

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

Thanks to the great interest in our 15 Years of DCS celebration sale we decided to extend the closing date until the 24th of September, 16:00 GMT. Don’t miss the final days and the opportunity to get something special at an exceptional price.

DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer has undergone updates to its datalink and fixed several bugs for its next Open Beta update. This will form part of the larger DCS 2.9 update that is currently in pre-release testing. Please read the details below.

The Virtual 303rd Fighter Group is a US-based multiplayer group that flies the A-10C II, F-16C, and F-15E. Many of their members served in the US armed forces or are real-world instrument rated pilots and so the level of professionalism is certainly right up there. Join their Discord and a great bunch of guys who are looking to help and challenge you too.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics

A-10C II Tank Killer

Development Progress

A-10C II Tank Killer

In the next DCS Open Beta, you will be able to customize your data link members consisting of up to four team members and 12 donors using the Mission Editor based on Track Numbers, or TNs. Please note that this operates on a different data link than the F-16C and F/A-18C data links. At a later point, we plan to add a second data link option that will be compatible with those other aircraft. Stay tuned!

We are also making steady progress on the implementation of the SNS + INS system, which will provide more immersive and realistic position errors. Over the past month, the DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer has undergone maintenance, and several bugs have been corrected. Notably, AGM-65L laser codes from 2111 to 2688 couldn't be read from the scratchpad; this has now been fixed. The laser code has also been added to the MAV page, which is available for editing. We are tuning and adding new functions to the ARC-210 radio and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) guidance system.

F-16C Viper

The Virtual 303rd Fighter Group is an excellent team whose focus is on tactics, training, and realistic combat operations. The members have over 2,400 sorties, totaling more than 5,000 multiplayer flight hours in the DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer and DCS: F-16C Viper. They have their very own DCS: F-15E squadron too! 

The v303rd offers structured training for all of their supported aircraft, optional follow-on training, and two persistent, dedicated servers that run training and combat missions on the DCS: Nevada NTTR map.

They are a highly professional, close-knit and relaxed mil-sim group that prioritizes family-first. If you enjoy flying with friends while focusing on real world tactics, techniques, and procedures, join the 303rd Fighter Group Discord.

Thank you again for your passion and support,

Yours sincerely,
