Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

Some of you will already have seen the news regarding DCS: A-7E Corsair II currently under development by our third party friends, FlyingIron Simulations. For those of you who didn’t catch it, below is some exciting information on the progress being made. You will notice that the external 3D model shows promising accuracy and realism.

We have recently fine tuned the A-10C flight model characteristics and we have taken this opportunity of presenting Dima Yo-yo’s A-10C Flight Improvements report for your consideration. Also please check out the sound enhancements made to the GAU-8/A Gatling gun, it’s quite something. A-10 GAU-8/A Updated Gun Sounds.

Thank you for your passion and support.


Yours sincerely,

A-7E Corsair II

Progress

DCS World 2.5.6

With the core of the fuel system in place, the team’s next focus will be on integrating cockpit switch functionalities, gauges and displays. Work has also begun on the electrical system, which powers avionics and sensors. This is highly detailed work and one of the developers top priorities.

A-10C II Tank Killer

The instantaneous turn rate was tested and improved. It was noticed during this test that maintaining near-stall AoA was a bit tricky due to buffeting.

We have tuned our buffeting model to match the reference charts and then, the tests were conducted again in the same conditions. Load factor fluctuations are now gone, resulting in the ability to maintain near-stall AoA.

Sound FX

A-10C GAU-8/A

The GAU-8/A “Avenger” 30mm hydraulically driven autocannon has received an improved set of sound effects to take advantage of better doppler shifting, sound delay between round impacts, round flight and cannon fire effects. The seven barrel gatling-style gun is capable of delivering 4,200 rounds per minute, striking fear into any surrounding enemies.

Brrrrrtttt on!
