Dear Fighter Pilot, Partners and Friends,

We would like to take this opportunity to discuss DCS: F-16C Viper features in order to provide an achievable and transparent plan for 2020 and beyond. With this in mind, we invite you to contribute to the DCS: F-16 Viper Future Features Survey.

We are delighted to share the current development progress on DCS: F-16C Viper and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

This week we released an update to DCS World Open Beta (OB). We would like to kindly remind you that the releases of DCS World OB and Stable versions have been slowed down in order to continue working on substantial bug-fixing and account for longer testing periods.

Please read the most recent OB changelog.

Thank you for your passion.


Yours sincerely,

The Eagle Dynamics Team

Flight Dynamic

Several subject matter experts are involved in further improvements to the flight model and flight control system. This will provide substantial accuracy enhancements and we look forward to your feedback.

Additionally, a white paper has been prepared that describes some of the basics of our Flight Module (FM) programming, in particular with regards to the way we use the sources available to achieve a high level of accuracy in our simulation.
