and the Latest F-4U Corsair development progress.

14 January 2022

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

We are delighted to introduce the MB-339A Aermacchi by IndiaFoxEcho as an addition to our DCS aircraft line up. The MB-339 is a single engine, twin seat, jet trainer and light ground support aircraft which entered service in the early 80's - the primary user is the Italian Air Force. This advanced trainer has superb flying qualities and we are certain that you will enjoy it’s excellent capabilities.

We are also pleased to share more exciting progress being made by our third party partners Magnitude 3 with the DCS: F4U-1D Corsair as well as their Essex Class aircraft carrier. Check out the screenshots below, they look wonderful.

As the new year kicks off at full power, we are excited to announce some splendid progress on the new models for the B-1B Lancer, B-52H Stratofortress and S-3B Viking AI aircraft. We hope you will find these In Development Screenshots interesting. The final level of detail should be impressive.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics Team




The MB-339 also took part in the Falklands-Malvinas war with the Armada de la República Argentina (Argentina Navy) and was also used by the Eritrean Air Force in various roles, against rebels, smugglers, and even against the Ethiopian Air Force.

Today, the MB-339 is also used by “Al Fursan” (“The Knights”) UAE’s national aerobatic team and by the “Frecce Tricolori” Italian national aerobatic team. The MB-339 is the only jet aircraft capable of performing the famous Lomcovák manoeuvre.

The MB-339 for DCS aims to be the most realistic simulation of this aircraft ever made for PC, not only in terms of system functionality and performance but especially flight model. Currently, the aircraft is in it’s internal test phase and is continuously being improved as new features are being added.
