A new Persian Lion Campaign is coming soon and the VIAF 2022 is on!

9 December 2022

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

We are pleased to share further progress on the real time lighting technology that was initially implemented on the DCS: Persian Gulf map. Check out the In Development Screenshots.

Three new features are coming to DCS: AH-64D. The pilot model from the first person view, the Performance (PERF) Page, and the Image Auto-Tracker (IAT) mode will be included in the next Open Beta Update. Please watch Matt Wagner’s AH-64D IAT video.

The DCS: F/A-18C Rise of the Persian Lion II Campaign by Badger633 is coming soon. This campaign requires DCS: Supercarrier, DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and DCS: Persian Gulf.

Drop by the Virtual Airshow Festival this weekend to check out some impressive aerobatic displays. With 56 teams and 26 hours of streaming, this is the biggest virtual airshow yet. The event will be broadcasted live from the Clin d'Ailes aviation museum in Payerne, Switzerland. Check out the details below and the VIAF 2022 schedule.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Development Progress

Persian Gulf

We continue to work on real time lighting technology. In the next update you can expect to see the new lighting for several ports of Dubai. Some oil tankers and rural houses have also had their lighting updated. We are now working on integrating this technology to all rural, industrial and unique buildings such as the Burj Khalifa. We look forward to your feedback on this impressive improvement.


Development Report


The next Open Beta update will include 3D-animated pilot and co-pilot/gunner models from the first person perspective. The update will also include Image Auto-Track (IAT) with the Multi-Target Track (MTT) sub-mode. The Performance (PERF) page will be at a complete state. Improvements have been made to the flight model and flight control system with further work planned.

DCS: AH-64D is one step closer to being available in the Free Trial Program. Please stay tuned for more information and watch Matt Wagner’s video on AH-64D on IAT/MTT.

Early next year you may look forward to the new AGM-114L radar-guided Hellfire missile and the improved data modem (IDM) for networked operations. The option of the auxiliary fuel tank or extra gun ammunition is also coming soon. Early next year will also see the beginning of Fire Control Radar (FCR) development.
