The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map is centered on the World War II battlefield of Normandy, France and is specifically created to depict the period after the D-Day landings and the establishment of several allied airfields in Normandy to support the beachhead breakout in late June 1944. The map measures 267 x 348 kilometers and includes airfields in both Normandy and southern England. The map includes the famous D-Day landing beaches and the "Atlantic Wall", rolling bocage fields of Normandy, large cities like Caen and Rouen, ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre, and 30 airfields. The map also includes multiple seasons and more detail and accuracy than any previous DCS World map by utilizing new map technologies.
In addition to being developed to support DCS: World War II modules, other module eras from the Korean War to Modern Day may also be used with this map.
The Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) has the largest contiguous air and ground space available for peacetime military operations in the free world. The NTTR land area includes simulated air defense systems, mock airbases, and several target ranges. The NTTR was also used for nuclear testing. Today, it is home to RED FLAG and other military exercises that include countries from around the world. The NTTR map for DCS World 2 includes Nellis AFB, Creech AFB and the infamous Groom Lake AFB (aka Area 51). This map also includes the city of Las Vegas, McCarran International Airport, and Hoover Dam.

DCS: Supercarrier is the most detailed and realistic simulation of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier ever created. A Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is a nuclear-powered fortress at sea with a crew of over 6,000 sailors and airmen. The angled flight deck with arrestor wires and four steam-powered catapults support air wing operations of up to 90 aircraft. The ship also includes a formidable air defense system that includes the RIM-7 Sea Sparrow Missile and RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) missiles, and Close-In Weapon System (CIWS) gun system. A Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is the ultimate power projection weapon.
The NS 430 GPS navigation system, is an optional add-on module for most DCS World aircraft. It provides powerful, yet intuitive, navigation and radio communications options to supplement the navigation and radio systems already integrated into your aircraft. The NS 430 is particularly useful for older aircraft with less sophisticated navigation and communication systems.
This module provides ability to display the NS 430 as a pop-up window in almost all aircraft (except for those that have their own advanced navigation systems like the A-10C, Ka-50 and F/A-18C).
The NS 430 can also be separately purchased as an integrated cockpit panel option for DCS: Mi-8MTV2, DCS: L-39 Albatros and DCS: C-101 Aviojet by AvioDev.
The DCS: World War II Assets Pack provides numerous World War II air, land and sea assets to populate the Normandy and other DCS World maps with. Eagle Dynamics has spent several years creating an entirely new set of combat vehicles to support DCS: World War II, and each unit is created with an exceptional level of detail and accuracy.
In addition to populating World War II era maps, this asset pack can be used with all other DCS World map modules.
DCS: Combined Arms gives you control of ground forces during the battle. Use the Command Map to move ground forces, set artillery fire missions, and control the ground battle. Assume the role of a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) in multiplayer and designate targets for player-controlled close air support aircraft, or directly control armor vehicles or air defense weapons and engage the enemy.
Play DCS: Combined Arms as a real time strategy game, a first person armor warfare game, or direct the ground battle from the cockpit of a DCS aircraft like the A-10C Warthog, Ka-50 Black Shark, or P-51D Mustang.
DCS: Combined Arms supports both single player and multiplayer gameplay. When in multiplayer, different players can take on different roles such as artillery commanders, tank commanders, pilots, JTACS, etc. DCS: Combined Arms allows you full control of the battle. All roles can be changed dynamically during the battle.
August, 1944. You arrive to Merville-Calonne to take over the leadership of 7./JG26 flying Focke Wulf 190A-8s. Most of the pilots are mere teenagers with only a few flying hours, and your job is to turn them into an efficient fighting unit under the ever-increasing pressures of the war. The Western-Allies have gained complete air superiority over the continent, and their ground forces are advancing rapidly through France. Experience the thrill of attacking large bomber formations head-on, or the terror of taking off amid the bullets of low flying Mustangs. Escort bombers to their target across the hazy Channel, or strafe enemy vehicles advancing relentlessly towards Germany. Join the last of the Jagdfliegers as they fight desperately day after day in the final months of the Third Reich.
And again, you take over the seat of the commander of a Mi-8MTV2.
You are Dmitry Tarasov - a young pilot, who climbs the career ladder and is faced with professional difficulties that your crew helps to overcome. The adventure story of the Crew campaign consists of two parts.
The Raven One campaign for the F/A-18C Hornet is based on the bestselling novel of the same title. This campaign was developed with the active participation of author Kevin Miller and Vincent "Jell-O" Aiello, host of the Fighter Pilot Podcast. Both are retired U.S. Navy Hornet pilots, each with over 3,000 career flight hours and numerous overseas deployments.
The campaign faithfully recreates sorties from the book, while adding additional ones related to the action, for a total of 15 immersive, fully voiced-over missions. Each script was carefully checked by Kevin and Vincent to ensure the most realistic experience available in DCS.
The "Serpents Head 2" is a 10 Mission Campaign for the F/A-18C Hornet. It comprises the next chapter of the previous 6 Mission "Serpents Head" Campaign already released and still available in the DCS user files.
