Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

The Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft are receiving a free PBR texture update. Please make sure to take a look at the improvements to the J-11A Flanker B+, Su-27 Flanker, Su-33 Flanker, F-15C Eagle and A-10A Warthog in the latest update of DCS. We look forward to your feedback, and if you haven’t already seen it, please check out the Flaming Cliffs 3 upgrade video

Following a substantial rework of our development process, we have unified the Stable and Open Beta versions of DCS into a single Stable version. We believe this will improve and simplify the update delivery process experience for all existing and future customers. Thank you for your guidance and support. 

Get ready for a new Maple Flag challenge with the F-15C Aggressors Air Combat Maneuvering Campaign! These missions aim to sharpen your dogfighting skills and put your tactics to the test in a set of pulse pounding missions. Download now

This Sunday 25th of February, we will be discontinuing the new user 50% discount.  In addition, we will soon be introducing a new ED Miles program for the benefit of all new and existing users. 

Please stay tuned for further announcements. In the meantime, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to you all for being a part of the DCS community. Your energy, feedback, and support drives us onwards and upwards.

Thank you!

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics

Flaming Cliffs 3

Free upgrade

SU-27 Flanker

The DCS: Flaming Cliffs aircraft have received a texture refresh upgrade to their cockpit and external model textures. The F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, and J-11 have received new cockpits and external textures, and the Su-25 has received new cockpit textures. These upgraded cockpits focus on detail and realism and include Physical Based Rendering (PBR) textures. This free upgrade enhances Flaming Cliffs 3 to 2024 texture standards and promises to maintain Flaming Cliffs 3 as an excellent choice for new and veteran DCS pilots.

Our goal is to further improve the new user experience in DCS. The Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft provide professional-level flight models but with simplified controls that result in a shallower learning curve for new virtual pilots. The F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, J-11, MiG-29A, MiG-29S, and Su-25 provide a variety of aircraft that range from air superiority to attack. These come with a wealth of missions and campaigns and are operable on most online servers.

If you are not already flying Flaming Cliffs 3, now is a great time to jump in and enjoy this great value.
