and FLIR gets improvements.

02 September 2022

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

We are thrilled to introduce the Airplane Simulation Company who proudly present a modernized version of a truly iconic tactical airlifter, the C-130J. The arrival of this four engined turboprop transport will bring a new era of rich logistics gameplay in DCS.

Upgrades continue to the Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) rendering system that is used in a variety of targeting pods and other imaging systems. We are working on enhancing FLIR textures for all ground units and ships. Please read the details below.

We would also like to inform you of the latest Open Beta patch that will take care of some urgent Viper fixes. This patch also includes important improvements to DCS: Mirage F1. Please read the changelog.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics

DCS: C-130J


DCS: C-130J

Although the C-130 first entered service nearly 70 years ago, the airframe has been continually updated, culminating with the delivery of the J model in 1999. Watch the teaser.

The ‘J’ is a modernized variant that features a glass cockpit, air-to-ground radar, FMS, and computerized airdrop capabilities designed to reduce crew workload.

Exciting additional variants are planned in the near future, including the KC versions. This will offer player to player aerial refueling, another first in DCS.


Development Progress

DCS: F-16C Viper

Since the introduction of the new FLIR system, we continue to texture ground units and ships to match real life FLIR signatures. We also aim to adjust aircraft FLIR signatures at different times of day and in varying thermal conditions. FLIR rendering of terrain elements such as building windows and civilian traffic are also being improved. There are many more improvements taking place, and we will keep you updated. Meanwhile, we really look forward to your feedback.

Open Beta


DCS: F1 Mirage

We are pleased to inform you that the latest Open Beta patch will resolve the Viper avionics crash. Furthermore, Aegres has brought Flight Model and system improvements, as well as communication enhancements and texture updates to the 3D Model for DCS: Mirage F1.

Thank you again for your passion and support,

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics
