Introducing Open Beta 2.7.7.

22 October 2021

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

Welcome to our Halloween Sale that starts today and will run until the 3rd of November at 15:00 GMT. Take this opportunity to acquire something special. Most of our modules are offered with up to 50% discount and our advanced products with a 30% saving. Check out the video and see the details below.

Our new Open Beta 2.7.7 update brings you a substantial number of fixes, and now included with the free download of DCS World is the Forrestal Class CV-59 aircraft carrier. This very historical carrier offers a superb level of detail and brings new mission scenarios for the DCS: F-14A/B Tomcat currently available with 15% discount in the Halloween Sale.

Our Viper has received the CBU-103 WCMD as a payload option. Additionally, the air-to- ground radar now includes Sea and Ground Mapping modes. Please read the full changelog and watch the latest DCS: F-16C Viper | Air-to-Ground Radar tutorial.

The work on DCS: Mi-24P Hind anti-tank guided AT-9 Spiral-2 missile is complete. This missile expands Hind's arsenal and requires no additional changes to the helicopter’s internal weapon system, just like their real life counterpart.

The Mariana Islands now include waves that break on the shorelines and a more realistic seabed. Nine new islands and an airfield have also been added. Check out the In Development Screenshots, they are stunning.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics Team

F-14A/B Tomcat

CV-59 Forrestal Class Supercarrier

Forrestal was a highly successful United States aircraft carrier that saw action over four decades, including extensive operations in Vietnam. This detailed recreation of the CV-59 USS Forrestal represents some of the capabilities from DCS: Supercarrier including and not limited to; defence systems, night lighting, and catapult/arrestor systems. Please have a look at the beautiful DCS Forrestal Launch Day video.

The updated LANTIRN targeting pod and bombing system is now available from the control menu and allows JESTER AI full control over procedures.

Please read the full changelog for details.

Mi-24P Hind

Development Progress

Mi-24P Hind

DCS: Mi-24P Hind has introduced three variations of the Ataka AT-9 Spiral-2 Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM), these are;

  • 9M120 – Tandem HEAT warhead that is about 10% less powerful than the Vikhr ATGM.
  • 9M120F – High Explosive warhead for use against soft targets and light armor.
  • 9M220O – For use against helo targets and equipped with a proximity fuse.

We are also improving the flying capabilities of the Petrovich AI. Currently, these changes are undergoing testing, and we plan to include them in the next patch. Changes will cover better turn coordination, nap of the earth flying, smoothing of certain flight transitions, vertical take off/landing, and ATGM hover attack maneuvers.

The ATGM guidance unit in the Pilot-Operator’s cockpit is undergoing an update, and gyroscopic damping is being tuned based on input from SMEs. The Damage model is also being further improved based on your detailed reports. Thank you for being active!
