Dear fighter pilots,

This is a crucial time to focus on who we care for most and embrace the love and attention our families provide. With this mindset, we continue to promote our Free for All event and the 50% discount until the 19th of May.

We are working hard on the final touches of the Early Access release of the P-47 which we hope will be a wonderful addition to the WWII fleet of fighters in DCS. Check out the WIP pictures below.

The Channel Map is in final alpha testing and receiving a lot of attention, especially with regards to optimisation and functionality during this test phase. We are really looking forward to showing this highly detailed terrain to you in the nearest future. The P47 screenshots are all taken in the Channel Map and give you an idea of what’s to come.

Thank you for your passion and support and stay safe.

Yours sincerely,

The Eagle Dynamics Team
