The MB-339 is a single engine, twin seat, Italian jet trainer and light ground support aircraft derived from the legendary MB-326 and designed during the Cold War. The aircraft entered service in the early 80's becoming the main training platform of the Italian Air Force.
The MB-339 was exported in several foreign countries in which some specimens are still operative. This aircraft also took part in the Falklands-Malvinas war with the Armada de la República Argentina (Argentina Navy) and was also used by the Eritrean Air Force in various roles, against rebels, smugglers, and even against the Ethiopian Air Force.
Historical operators of this aircraft in its A version were the Italian Air Force, Malaysia, Nigeria, Peru, United Arabs Emirates, Argentina and Ghana.
Thanks to its superb flying qualities, the MB-339 in its aerobatic version (PAN) is also used by two great national aerobatic teams: the "Frecce Tricolori" (Italian Air Force) and the "Al Fursan" ("The Knights" – UAE Air Force).
The MB-339 is the only jet aircraft capable of performing the famous Lomcovák manoeuvre.
The DCS: MB-339 aims to be the most realistic simulation of this aircraft ever made for PC, not only in terms of system functionalities but especially flight performances.
The MB-339 will be available in an almost complete state. Some of the most interesting features available at the release date are:
The Aerges Engineering Team is pleased to introduce the DCS: Mirage F1. The Mirage F1 is a legendary single engine French fighter jet from the Cold War era. It has had an illustrious career serving with the air forces of France, Spain, Greece, Iraq and many other countries and has taken part in multiple conflicts. From its original role as an all-weather interceptor, it has evolved with multiple versions into a capable multirole platform.
The DCS: Mirage F1 will allow virtual pilots to accurately experience the feeling of flying a 1970s third generation aircraft. This is a particularly interesting aircraft, as it is equipped with a more sophisticated flight control system and navigation suite. However, it lacks any screens or computer assistance and has to be flown carefully and with skill.
One of the most revolutionary and effective combat aircraft of WWII, the British de Havilland Mosquito was in service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1940 to 1961. A brilliant and innovative design, the 'Mossie' left a bright and lasting mark in the history of aviation and served the United States, Canada, and Australia.
An airframe built mostly of wood, to save on scarce metal supplies, earned the Mosquito the nickname "The Wooden Wonder". It was also known as ‘Freeman’s Folly’ after the Air Marshal who backed its production.
Armed with four 7.7mm (.303in) Browning machine guns and four 20mm (.79in) Hispano Mk.II cannons, this superbly versatile fighter-bomber could carry both bomb and rocket payloads over long distances at high speed – and deliver them with pinpoint accuracy.
The Mossie’s ability to maintain a high cruising speed at high altitude made it very difficult for Luftwaffe fighters to intercept it.
The DCS: Mosquito FB VI fighter-bomber you will be flying is the most impressive variant of this aircraft to see action in WWII. A total of 2,140 were produced.
Equipped with more powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin 25 engines, the FB Mk. VI’s excellent handling characteristics make it a pleasure to fly.
The DCS: A-10C II Tank Killer is the follow-on to the renowned DCS: A-10C Warthog, bringing many improvements and new additions including the latest weapons, a helmet-mounted sight, and upgraded graphics
Its seven-barrel, 30mm GAU-8/A Gatling gun can fire up to 3,900 HEAP rounds a minute, chewing through tanks, armoured vehicles, bunkers and a host of other targets.
One of the most robust and survivable aircraft ever built, the Thunderbolt is a joy to fly. You can throw it around at low speed to acquire targets while avoiding threats, and it will always repay your skill. A large bubble canopy gives you great all-round visibility, making it easier to see and strike enemy assets.
Able to survive hits from armor-piercing and high explosive projectiles up to 23mm, the Thunderbolt has no fear of the front line. Deliver highly accurate AGM-65 Maverick missiles, laser and GPS-guided bombs, rockets and a wide range of other weapons in all weathers. The advanced Helmet mounted cueing system allows you to search and engage targets with ease and share target locations in real time with wingmen using the integrated Tactical Awareness Display.
The go-to Close Air Support (CAS) aircraft of the United States, the A-10 Warthog proved its lethal worth in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now in an even more fearsome form, the DCS A-10C Thunderbolt II lets you stay in the fight - and win.
Excelling both as a pure fighter and in the ground attack role, the powerful Republic P-47D Thunderbolt gave Allied Air Forces a whole new cutting edge in World War 2. Nicknamed the ‘Jug’, its eight M2 Browning .50-calibre (12.7 mm) machine guns packed a devastating punch: the P-47D could fire 3,400 rounds of ammunition in a continuous, 30-second stream of high-explosive lead, shredding any enemy aircraft in its sights.
With a bubble canopy providing great all-round visibility, a range of 1,000 miles at 10,000 feet and a massive 18-cylinder, 2,600-horsepower R-2800-59 Double Wasp turbocharged radial engine giving it a top speed of 428 mph, the Jug acted as a highly effective Allied bomber escort in raids on Nazi-occupied Europe. More than twice the weight of the Spitfire, its sheer size, rugged construction and armoured cockpit meant the P-47D could shrug off astonishing amounts of enemy fire.
A flying tank, the Thunderbolt also more than lived up to its name as a ground-attack aircraft: able to carry 2,500 lbs (1,134 kg) of rockets and bombs, a fully-loaded Jug delivered roughly half the payload of a B-17 Flying Fortress. More than 15,000 variants of the type were produced by the end of WW2.
The P-47D’s legacy of strength, firepower and indestructibility lives on in the A-10C Thunderbolt II Tank Killer. Both aircraft feature in DCS. Fly them - and feel the power.
JF-17 is a single seat, single engine, multirole light fighter that was joint developed by AVIC Chengdu and Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC). The design phase of JF-17 "Thunder" finished at May 31st, 2002, and the maiden flight was made on August 25th, 2003. The first plane delivered to PAF (Pakistan Air Force) in 2007. Currently several different blocks of JF-17s are in service in Pakistan and Myanmar air forces. There are also several countries interested in purchasing this fighter jet. On February 27th, 2019, "Thunder" has withstood the test of actual combat and helped PAF win an appreciable victory.
"Thunder" is a type of fighter that specifically tailored for PAF. The development plan of her predecessor can even be traced back to 1985. At first, PAF was only looking for a fighter that can replace Shenyang J-6 (Chinese version of Mig-19), but they were not satisfied with Chengdu’s J-7M. After more than 20 years of development, the final product "Thunder" becomes completely different from J-7M.
"Thunder" has a bubble canopy of great view, pretty strake-wing layout and advanced avionics. KLJ-7 radar provides excellent air to ground capability. WMD-7 targeting pod can help "Thunder" searching for targets in combat. Although "Thunder" has small size, remember that: she is one of the most advanced fighter jets in the DCS World.
The General Dynamics F-16C ‘Viper’ is a high-performance, single-seat multirole combat aircraft that excels not only as an air superiority fighter, but also in the ground attack, precision bombing, SEAD and reconnaissance roles.
For air-to-air combat the F-16C is armed with AIM-9L/M/P/X Sidewinder missiles, AIM-120B/C AMRAAMs and an internal, six-barrel, M61A-1 20mm Gatling Gun firing 4-6,000 rounds per minute. An advanced airframe and fly-by-wire system mean the Viper can pull 9g, while the F110-GE-129 engine powers it to a maximum speed of more than Mach 2.
In the ground-attack role, the F-16C’s sophisticated targeting and aiming systems enable it to deliver a wide range of munitions with great accuracy. These include specialized Targeting Pods (Litening pod and the AGM-88 HARM Targeting System (HTS). The multifunction APG-68(V)5 radar system provides ground-mapping, ground moving target indication (GMTI), sea target, and track-while-scan (TWS) capability for up to 10 air targets at a time.
A frameless bubble canopy for outstanding visibility, a reclined seating position for high g tolerance and a helmet-mounted cueing system help pilots make the most of a superb machine. Few other aircraft can match the Viper for versatility, maneuverability, and firepower. Fly it and feel the power.
One of the deadliest air superiority fighters of WW2, the Fw 190A-8 ‘Anton’ also punched above its weight for the Luftwaffe as a bomber-killer, fighter-bomber and night fighter. Armed with four wing-mounted MG 151 20 mm cannons and two nose-mounted 13 mm MG 131 machine guns, the single-seat Anton bit really hard in a scrap.
Combined with the Fw 190 A-8’s speed, rates of climb and dive and all-round agility, this fearsome amount of firepower gave Allied pilots a real challenge. Even the P-51D Mustang and the Mk.IX Spitfire struggled to match it in a dogfight. When they did land rounds on it, the Anton’s side and rear cockpit armour and armoured engine cowling made it harder to down.
The A-8 could also be loaded with unguided rockets and bombs, including the giant, Werfer-Granate 21 cm spin-stabilised rocket. This delivered a 40.8 kg (90 lb) warhead with a lethal blast area of about 30 metres (100 ft). Launched into massed Allied bomber fleets by packs of Antons, where they didn’t actually bring down the bombers, these mighty munitions forced the tight formations to split, leaving individual aircraft open to attack.
A powerful BMW 801D-2 14-cylinder radial engine gave the Anton a top speed of 654 km/h (408 mph) and an initial climb rate of 720 m (2,363 ft) per minute. In a combat emergency, the ‘C3’ injection system also provided a short boost of extra power .
Strong, wide-track undercarriage allowed the Fw 190A-8 to operate from rough front-line airfields. More than 6,650 Fw 190 variants were produced in the last two years of the war. Many of the Luftwaffe's aces racked up their impressive victory counts in the Anton, but you can match it in the Spitfire Mk IX. Try both and see who comes out on top.
I-16 - Soviet single-engine monoplane fighter of 1930s created by aircraft designer Nikolai Polikarpov’s design bureau. It was the one of the world’s first fighters with landing gear retraction system. It was I-16 which stood the air fighting against famous Messerschmitt Bf 109.
Over a period of its history I-16 was upgraded a lot. New modifications of aircraft were created and adopted almost every year. I-16 type 24 was further development of I-16 type 18.
The MiG-19P Farmer was designed by the legendary Mikoyan Design Bureau in the Early 1950’s. The MiG-19 fighter was the Soviet Union’s first true supersonic Interceptor that could exceed Mach 1 in level flight.
Designed to take on enemy fighters and bombers at any time of day or night and in any weather condition, the Farmer was equipped with the RP-5 lzumrud radar in the nose and armed with two NR-30 30mm cannons in the wing roots. The Farmer is also able to carry an array of ground attack weapons that includes S-5M rockets and various general-purpose bombs. It is a lethal interceptor with conventional ground attack capabilities.
We are proud to bring you this exciting addition to DCS World. The Farmer is highly-optimized to work within DCS World and takes advantage of its unrivalled combat environment that only Eagle Dynamics can offer.
The Christen Eagle II, which later became the Aviat Eagle II in the mid-1990s, is an aerobatic biplane aircraft that has been produced in the United States since February 1977.
Designed by Frank Christensen, a veteran WW2 P-51D pilot and aerobatic competitor, it was originally built to compete with the Pitts Special. You’ll find that the Eagle is hard to beat in terms of flying excitement and adventure, and yet the ease of control allows even average pilots to feel like masters of aerobatics.
Dare to fly like a true eagle, whether you are learning to fly, or you are an experienced pilot. Inside this powerful aerobatic beauty, you can enjoy solo aerobatics, do tight formation flying, graze the landscape sightseeing, or speed race down the track. You can even teach other people to fly. The smoke system allows you to visualize your stunts for yourself and other viewers. To extend the Eagle’s prowess in DCS, we implemented an internal and external light system which will keep you safe day and night, and a simple autopilot which will allow you to grab your favorite drink while your aircraft safely levels and awaits your return.
The MiG-29 (NATO codename Fulcrum) is a twin-engined, supersonic fighter that can carry up to 4,000 Kg of ordnance on 7 hardpoints. For its primary air combat role, the MiG-29’s standard loadout is two R-27 (AA-10 Alamo) medium-range AAMs and four short-range R-60 (AA-8 Aphid) or R-73 (AA-11 Archer) IR guided missiles. The Fulcrum also has an internal 30mm GSh-30-1 autocannon with 150 rounds.
In the ground attack role, the Fulcrum can be armed with a wide range of conventional bombs and unguided rockets. These include 665 Kg bombs, light 57mm rockets and heavier, specialised rockets such as the S-8, which can penetrate up to 400mm of armour or 800mm of reinforced concrete.
In air combat and in the right hands, the Mig-29 is a highly agile and fearsome opponent.
Powered by 2 × Klimov RD-33 afterburning turbofans producing 18,342 lbf apiece, the MiG-29 has a maximum speed of 921 mph (Mach 1.21) at low level and a blistering 1,667 mph (Mach 2.25) at altitude. With a rate of climb of 65,000 fpm and a combat action radius of around 400 miles, the Mig-29A entered Soviet Air Force service in 1982. Over 1600 MiG-29s of all variants have been built and it has seen service with more than 30 air forces worldwide.
Both the MiG-29A and MiG-29C variants in DCS World focus on ease of use, and are a real blast to fly.
The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a two-crew, variable wing-geometry, maritime air superiority fighter that served with the US Navy for 32 years and continues to serve with the IRIAF in Iran. The F-14 was the US Navy's frontline fighter from the 1970s to the mid-2000s. Over the course of its long service it also became one of the US Navy’s premier precision ground-attack platform and its lone airborne reconnaissance asset.
Noteworthy features of the Tomcat are its swing-wing configuration, two-man crew, and the powerful AN/AWG-9 Weapons Control System (WCS) and radar. The AWG-9 allows employment of the long-range AIM-54 Phoenix air-to-air missile, and the LANTIRN targeting pod allows precision ground strikes using laser-guided bombs. The F-14 Tomcat was present in several historic events that include the two Gulf of Sidra incidents, Operations Desert Storm Iraqi Freedom, the Yugoslavian conflict, and Operation Enduring Freedom over Afghanistan. It was also immortalized in the iconic motion picture, Top Gun, and starred in several other feature films including The Final Countdown, Executive Decision, and others.
The Yakovlev Yak-52 is a tandem-seat, radial engine, propellor-driven aircraft that served for many years as the Soviet Union’s basic military flight trainer. Introduced in 1979, the Yak-52’s rugged construction, low maintenance costs and excellent handling also made it a popular choice as a basic trainer with a number of other air forces.
Powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, 268 kW (360 hp), nine-cylinder radial engine, the all-metal Yak-52’s light all-up weight and large control surfaces make it one of the world’s most responsive aircraft to fly. With learner-friendly handling characteristics, the Yak-52’s remarkable ability to pull over 7 g and push up to negative 5 g makes it a favorite of sports, aerobatics and beginner pilots worldwide.
A sparkling new simulation, the DCS: Yak-52 is an excellent and realistic starting point for your personal pilot career. Once you have breezed through the simulation’s training options, take the next step in the DCS: L-39C Albatros jet trainer. After that, you’ll be ready to rule the skies in modern combat aircraft such as the DCS: MiG-29, Su-27 and F/A18-C.
Our Hornet is the culmination of more than 40 man years of intense research, technology development, art creation, and ground-breaking coding. The Hornet brings the first, true, multi-role fighter to the skies of DCS World with equally impressive air-to-surface and air-to-air capabilities.
DCS: F/A-18C Hornet is initially being released as Early Access, with several features to be added during the Early Access period. This includes several sensors, weapons, and sub-systems.
The AV-8B project was born in the early 1970's as an effort to address the operational inadequacies of the AV-8A first generation Harrier, aimed to dramatically improve the capabilities and performance of the early AV-8A's. The AV-8B made its maiden flight in November 1981 and entered service with the United States Marine Corps in January 1985. It later evolved into the AV-8B N/A (Night Attack) and AV-8B Harrier II Plus.
First flight of a modified AV-8B in the night attack configuration was on June 26th, 1987. Deliveries to the USMC began in September of 1989 to VMA-214 at Yuma, Arizona. Follow-up units based out of Yuma received their Night Attack AV-8Bs by the end of 1992.The AV-8B N/A variant (originally known as the AV-8D) had its first operational development in 1984 and included use of the NAVFLIR (Navigation Forward-Looking Infrared camera, consisting of a GEC-Marconi FLIR system mounted in the nose) for night operations. Additionally, GEC Cat's Eyes night vision goggles were provided to the pilot as well as a revised cockpit with color MFDs, a wider field-of-view HUD display, a color CRT digital moving map, and a complete "heads-down" operation capability. The AV-8B N/A also sports four Tracor ALE-39 countermeasures dispensers along the top of the rear fuselage, in addition to two ALE-39 dispensers along the lower rear of the fuselage. The AV-8B N/A also fields an updated version of the Rolls-Royce Pegasus 11-61 (F402-RR-408) vectored-thrust turbofan engine.
The subject of this study level simulation is the AV-8B N/A Bu No's 163853 and up which are the latest variant of this very capable AV-8B version.
The AJS-37 Viggen is a Swedish double-delta supersonic attack aircraft from the late Cold War . It was the backbone of the Swedish Air Force during the Cold war, serving as the main attack and anti-ship platform. The AJS is the 90’s upgrade of this 70's era aircraft, adding several advanced weapons and systems functionalities. The aircraft was designed around the pilot, with an excellent man-machine interface, supporting the pilot through the smart use of autopilot systems, radar and HUD symbology in order to deliver the ordnance onto targets from treetop level with high speed attack runs.
The aircraft is armed with multiple weapon systems ranging from programmable stand-off weapons such as the RB-15F antiship missile to the BK90 Cluster munitions dispenser to various bombs, rockets and missiles for a wide range of target types. The aircraft can also carry gun pods and the Sidewinder series of infrared-guided missiles for air defence and self-protection purposes.
The Spitfire LF Mk IX is a single-seat, British fighter that was key to Allied domination of the skies in WW2. One of the most brilliant, beautiful and iconic aircraft of all time, the LF Mk IX was rushed into production in 1942 as a counter to the Focke-Wulf FW 190A, which until then had outperformed both earlier Spitfire variants and the Hawker Hurricane.
Fitted with the mighty Merlin 66 engine, the LF Mk IX proved to be much more than a stopgap measure: its sleek lines, excellent all-round handling and powerful armament helped Allied pilots gain the upper hand over the Luftwaffe. Four .303 in machine guns and twin 20 mm cannons made it a much-feared opponent in air combat.
The Spitfire LF Mk IX’s overall prowess and combat effectiveness helped the RAF go back onto the offensive, flying ‘circus’, ‘ramrod’, ‘rhubarb’ and ‘rodeo’ raids over occupied Europe.
For DCS World, we are happy to bring you the most accurate and realistic simulation of the Spitfire LF Mk IX ever created.
The F-5E was developed by Northrop Corporation in early 1970s. The light tactical fighter is an upgraded version based on previous F-5A developments. The F-5s' combat role encompasses air superiority, ground support, and ground attack. Given its mission flexibility, ease of operation, and low cost, the Tiger II has, and continues to serve, air forces across the globe.
The F-5Е is armed with two 20-mm М39-А3 cannons with 280 rounds per each cannon. The cannons are located in the nose section, forward of the cockpit. Special deflectors are used to avoid compressor stall conditions caused by hot gas ingestion as a bi-product of operating the M-39-A3. Each cannon is capable of firing at a rate of 1500 to 1700 rounds per minute.
Each wingtip incorporates a launcher rail capable of firing AIM-9 infrared-guided missiles.
Five hard points (one centerline pylon and four underwing pylons) allow the aircraft to carry different types of air-to-ground weapons (bombs, cluster munitions, and rockets) 6,400 pounds (about 3000 kg) in total. In addition, illumination ammunition and cargo containers can be attached. To increase flight duration and range, external fuel tanks can be attached to three hard points (a centerline pylon and two inboard pylons). Maneuverability and speed can be maximized in combat by jettisoning all external stores.
The M-2000C is a multi-role, French-designed, 4th generation fighter. It was designed in the 1970s as a lightweight fighter and in excess of 600 M-2000C aircraft have been built. The M-2000C is a single-engine fighter will a low-set delta wing with no horizontal tail. It has excellent maneuverability given its relaxed stability and fly-by-wire flight control system. The M-2000C also includes a multi-mode RDI radar that is capable tracking and engaging targets at beyond visual ranges. In addition to engaging other aircraft with cannon and missiles, the M-2000C can also engage ground targets with cannon, rockets and bombs. The M-2000C is a perfect fit for the battlefields of DCS World!
We now bring an exacting simulation the M-2000C to DCS World. The M-2000C is highly optimized to work within DCS World and takes advantage of the Digital Combat environment that only Eagle Dynamics can offer.
The twin-crew, tandem-seat Aero L-39 Albatros is a high-performance jet trainer, reconnaissance and light-attack aircraft developed in Czechoslovakia by Aero Vodochody. The most accurate computer simulation of this aircraft ever created, the DCS: L-39C gives pilots a first-rate basic and advanced all-weather day and night training in both visual and instrument flying.
The other variant available in DCS, the L-39ZA is a nimble and effective combat aircraft that has served widely in the air-to-air and ground attack roles. Armed with a GSh-23 23 mm twin autocannon, the L-39ZA is also able to carry up to 1100 kg of stores on four external hardpoints. These include FAB-100/100 kg LDGP bombs; UB-16UM rocket pods with 16 S-5KO 57 mm HEAT/Frag rockets apiece; and up to four triple-barrel PK-3 7.62 mm machine gun pods. The L-39ZA can also carry two R-60 IR homing missiles in the air intercept role.
The L-39 was the first second-generation jet trainer to be equipped with a turbofan power plant. The Ivchenko Al-25TL engine produces 1,720 kgf (3,800 lbf) thrust on take off and gives the Albatros a top speed of approx 600 mph/965 kph in level flight.
An instant hit, the L-39 was produced from 1971 to 1996 and widely exported as a military trainer and light combat aircraft. More than 2,800 L-39s have served with over 30 air forces around the world. Both DCS: L-39 Albatros variants are great fun to fly; the L-39ZA is especially useful for honing your rocket and gunnery skills.
The MiG-15 is a highly-capable clear-weather interceptor and light ground attack aircraft that saw much action in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Known as “Fagot” to NATO and “Type 15” to the USSR, it was the first swept-wing jet fighter to come out of the Mikoyan-Gurevich stable in the late 1940s. The MiG-15 served in large numbers during the 1950-53 Korean War, where its maneuverability and high transonic speed made it superior to all UN aircraft except the F-86 Sabre. The MiG-15 is credited with the first ever air-to-air jet kill, downing a USAF F-80C Shooting Star on November 1, 1950.
The DCS variant is the improved MiG-15bis ("second") type, which entered service in 1950 with a Klimov VK-1 engine giving it an effective top speed of Mach 0.92 (685 mph)
A powerful 37mm autocannon in the lower right fuselage (40 rounds total) and 2 × 23mm autocannon in the lower left fuselage (80 rounds per gun, 160 rounds total) give the MiG-15bis tremendous punch. In the secondary light ground attack role, the Fagot can also carry 100 kg bombs or rocket pods on its twin underwing hardpoints.
On 23 October 1951, 56 MiG-15bis intercepted nine B-29 Superfortresses escorted by 34 F-86 Sabres and 55 F-84E Thunderjets. Despite being outnumbered, the Soviet-piloted MiG-15s shot down/and or seriously damaged eight B-29s and two F-84Es, losing only one MiG in return, leading the Americans to call that day "Black Tuesday".
Some 18,000 MiG-15s were built and served in every nation under the Soviet sphere of influence during the Cold War and on into the 21st century. Battle the equally superb DCS: F-86 Sabre and see who comes out on top.
DCS: C-101 Aviojet will include both the C-101EB and C-101CC models. The C-101EB model is the primary jet trainer and aerobatic display aircraft of the Spanish Air Force, whilst the C-101CC model, with its 7 hard-points and uprated engine, is a versatile light attack aircraft that has seen combat with the Honduras Air Force against drug traffickers. It is also in service with the Jordanian and Chilean air forces.
The two models of the C-101 have many similarities that include cockpit layout, core-systems operation, and aerodynamic design. This commonality brings something for everyone to include lead-in jet training, advanced aerobatics, and light attack.
The powerful and deadly Messerschmitt Bf-109 was the mainstay of the Luftwaffe’s fighter arm throughout World War II, scoring more aerial victories than any other type. Thirteen Bf 109 pilots claimed more than 200 victories apiece, while two of these ‘Experten’, ‘Bubi’ Hartmann and ‘Gerd’ Barkhorn, each shot down more than 300 enemy aircraft. In the early years of the war, the speed, handling characteristics and firepower of the Bf 109E 'Emils' gave many Allied Hurricane and Spitfire pilots a nasty shock.
With a top speed of 690 km/h (429 mph) at 7,400 m (24,280 ft), a powerful 2,000 horsepower Daimler-Benz 605D engine and a pressurized cabin, the K-4 ‘Kurfürst’ was the best and final version of the Bf-109 to see service. Armed with one 30-mm Mk 108 cannon and two 13-mm Mk 131 machine guns, the K-4’s agility made it more than a match for most Allied fighters, while its blistering firepower made it the scourge of high-flying enemy bombers.
The ‘Kurfürst’ was also no slouch in the ground-attack role, carrying either a 500 kg or a 250 kg bomb.
Jump into your K-4, get airborne and tangle with Mustangs, Spitfires and Thunderbolts, or scythe your way down through massed Flying Fortress bomber formations.
The MiG-21bis is a delta wing, supersonic, fighter-interceptor jet aircraft. Much like the AK-47 became the everyman's rifle, the MiG-21 has been operated by more than 40 countries worldwide, and has enjoyed the longest production run of any modern jet fighter to date. The MiG-21, in all of its variants, has fought in wars stretching all the way from the Vietnam War in the 1960's to the modern day Syrian Civil War. Owing to its unique blend of versatility, ruggedness and maintainability, the MiG-21 remains in active service to this very day.
Leatherneck Simulations' recreation of the MiG-21 is, by far, the most accurate and comprehensive simulation of this supersonic jet fighter to date. The fully simulated systems, interactive cockpit, advanced flight modeling and incredible graphical fidelity come together to create a package that will provide you with the most authentic simulation possible. So strap in, and get ready to experience the rebirth of a legend.
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190D ‘Dora’ was a fast, versatile and powerful World War II fighter and ground attack aircraft. Twin 20mm Mauser MG-151/20 cannon in the wing roots with 250 rounds per gun and twin 13mm MG-131 cannon with 475 rounds per gun in the nose cowling give the Dora a fearsome punch. It is also able to carry one 500 kg (1,020 lb) SC 500 bomb in the ground attack role.
A development of the successful Fw 190 A, the D-9 entered Luftwaffe service late in 1944. The supercharged Junkers Jumo 213 V-12 engine with MW-50 injection system boosted the Dora’s emergency power from 1,750 hp (1,287 Kw) to 2,100 hp (1,508 Kw), making it a match for the P-51D Mustang fighters escorting Allied bombers in raids over Germany. Even so, operational necessity meant that the D-9 was often used in the ground attack and close air support (CAS) roles.The stretched nose fairing needed to accommodate the in-line Jumo 213 earned the D-9 its other nickname: ‘Langenase’ or ‘long nose.’
The North American F-86F Sabre is a day, clear weather, transonic fighter-interceptor with a secondary ground attack capability. The foremost US fighter of the Korean War (1950-53), the F-86 was the only Allied jet that could hold its own – and in the right hands, outmatch - the Russian-made MiG-15s over the bitterly-contested North Korean airspace known as ‘MiG Alley’.
The F-86F is armed with six .50 in/12.7 mm Colt-Browning М3 machine guns, with a rate of fire of 1100 rounds per minute and 300 rounds per gun. A game-changer at the time, the Sabre’s excellent APG-30 gunsight helped give it the edge in dogfights, enabling accurate fire at longer ranges. It can also carry two AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles. For air-to-ground strikes the F-86 can deliver up to sixteen HVAR unguided rockets or pairs of AN-M64 500lb or M117 750lb General Purpose bombs.
Powered by a single General Electric J47-GE-27 turbojet providing 5,910 lbs of thrust, the F-86F has a maximum speed of 595 knots at sea level, a rate of climb of 9,000 fpm to 49,600 feet and a combat radius of about 600 nautical miles.
Almost 10,000 were built, making the F-86 the most-produced Western jet-fighter of all time. Exported to many countries, it saw service with almost 30 air forces. It last saw action flying in Pakistani Air Force colors during the 1971 war with India.
Experience the strengths and challenges of the Sabre in combat and find out why seasoned fighter pilots often look back on it as the most enjoyable aircraft they ever flew.
The Su-33 is an all-weather air superiority and maritime strike fighter with a primary role of Fleet Air Defence. A carrier-based version of the superb Su-27, the Su-33 (NATO designation Flanker D) has been the backbone of Russian aircraft carrier aviation since entering service in 1995. Able to carry a wide range of powerful air-to-surface weapons and anti-ship missiles, the Flanker D has true multirole capability.
The Su-33 is equipped with an advanced pulse doppler radar (Slot Back) and an Infrared Search and Track (IRST) system that can automatically detect, identify, track and engage up to ten aerial and ground-based targets. The Flanker D can carry a wide range of semi-active and active-radar guided as well as IR and extended range (ER) missiles such as the R-73 (AA-11 Archer) and R-27E (AA-10 Alamo) on twelve hardpoints. An internal 150-round 30 mm GSh-30-1 cannon provides close range punch. For air-to-surface attack, the Su-33 can be armed with many types of unguided bombs, rockets, and cluster munitions.
Twin AL-31F afterburning turbofan engines each produce 15,500 kilogram-force (kgf) of thrust, powering the aircraft to a maximum speed of 2,300km/h and a climb rate of 325m/s. The Su-33’s integral helmet-mounted sight, off-boresight missile capability and maneuverability-enhancing canard wings make it a dangerous opponent in a dogfight.
The Su-27 (NATO codename Flanker B) is a highly-agile, supersonic, twin-engine air-superiority fighter. A mainstay of modern Russian combat aviation, the Su-27’s primary role is as a long-range interceptor, but it is also a superb dogfighter. The Flanker B can carry up to twelve air-to-air missiles - usually a mix of short range R-73s (AA-11 Archer) all-aspect IR and medium-to-long range R-27s (AA-10 Alamo). It also has a fearsome 30 mm GSh-30-1 cannon and can deliver unguided bombs, CBUs and rockets in the ground attack role.
Equipped with a powerful (‘Slot Back’, Russian ‘Mech’ or ‘Sword’) pulse doppler radar for optimum lookdown-shootdown capability, the Su-27 also has cutting-edge Infrared Search and Track (IRST) for the passive detection and engagement of aerial targets.
Powered by 2 × Saturn AL-31F turbofans each producing 16,910 lbf of dry thrust and 27,560 lbf with afterburner, the Flanker B has a maximum speed of 2,500 km/h (1,550 mph or Mach 2.35) at altitude and 1,400 km/h (870 mph or Mach 1.13) at sea level and a searing 59,000 ft/min rate of climb. The aircraft has a service ceiling of 62,500 ft and an exceptional range of 3,530 km (2,193 mi; 1,906 nmi) at altitude and 1,340 km (800 mi; 720 nmi) at sea level.
Fast, agile and superbly equipped, the Su-27's ability to maneuver at very slow speed and with a high angle-of-attack make it a dangerous opponent in air combat. Take on the D CS: F-15C Eagle - and see who comes out on top.
The McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather air superiority jet fighter that ranks as one of the best combat aircraft of the modern era. The versatile Eagle has been the mainstay of U.S. air defenses for more than three decades.
The aircraft's AN/APG-63(V) pulse-Doppler radar enables it to detect, identify and engage enemy aircraft at long range with AIM-120 AMRAAM or AIM-7 Sparrow missiles. For close range dogfights, the Eagle carries AIM-9 Sidewinder AAMs and an internal 20 mm M61 Vulcan Gatling gun housed in the starboard wing root.
The F-15C has scored more than 100 air-to-air victories in the service of Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S. without suffering any confirmed losses – a combat record that speaks for itself
Low wing loading, high thrust-to-weight ratio and large rudders enable the aircraft to turn tightly without losing too much energy, making it a powerful adversary in the hands of a skilled pilot. Twin Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-220 engines enable the F-15C to climb vertically to 40,000 feet (9,100 m) in less than a minute.
The F-15C first entered service in 1976 and has been widely exported, with 483 built between 1979–1985. King of skies for almost forty years, the DCS F-15C Eagle is one of the most exciting and rewarding DCS aircraft to fly.
The Sukhoi Su-25T 'Grach' (Rook), NATO codename 'Frogfoot', is a Russian-built, single-seat twin-engined aircraft that excels in the close air support, anti-armor and battlefield interdiction roles. A flying tank, the Su-25T can deliver a fearsome array of air-to-ground weaponry from its ten hardpoints. This includes S-25L 340 mm laser-guided rockets; S-8 KOM and S-13 unguided rockets; Kh-25Ml ‘Karen’ ASMs; guided and unguided bombs and a variety of cluster bomb units. For air-to-air combat, the Su-25T carries the R-60 Molniya (AA-8 Aphid) IR homing missile.
Armed with 250 rounds, the Frogfoot’s internal, twin-barrel GSh-2-30 mm autocannon can deliver devastating bursts of 3,000 HEAP/depleted uranium rounds per minute. Additional GSh-23 23 mm gun pods can be fitted. A nose-mounted Kylon PS laser target designator and rangefinder helps ensure accurate fire. Survivability is enhanced by welded-titanium cockpit armor; a rugged avionics system; and a range of countermeasures.
Powered by 2 × Soyuz/Tumansky R-195 turbojets each producing 9,921 lbf of dry thrust, the Frogfoot has a maximum speed of 970 km/h/525 kts at sea level and a combat radius of 1250 km. More than 1,000 Su-25 variants have been built since it entered service in 1978.
The Soviet Air Force flew some 60,000 Su-25 missions during the Soviet-Afghan War for the loss of no more than 24 aircraft. In September 2015, Russia deployed a squadron of Su-25s to Syria to support the offensive against ISIS. The devastation the Frogfoot can wreak on ground targets has to be seen to be believed. Strap in and feel the power.
The A-10A Thunderbolt II, also known as the Warthog, is a 'flying gun'. The aircraft was used extensively during Operation Desert Storm, in support of NATO operations in response to the Kosovo crisis, in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The A-10A is a high-survivability and versatile aircraft, popular with pilots for the 'get home' effectiveness. The mission of the aircraft is ground attack against tanks, armored vehicles and installations, and close air support of ground forces. The Warthog is famous for its massive 30mm cannon, but it can also be armed with Maverick guided missiles and several types of bombs and rockets.
DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 (FC3) is the next evolution of the Flaming Cliffs series. FC3 features the F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, MiG-29A, MiG-29S, Su-25T, and Su-25. FC3 aircraft provide an easy learning curve for new players and focuses on a broad range of aircraft rather than a detailed single aircraft. FC3 adds a number of new features and improvements to previous versions of the Flaming Cliffs series. FC3 is a module of DCS: World, which makes it compatible with all other DCS: World titles like A-10C, Black Shark 2, P-51D, and Combined Arms.
The P-51D Mustang is not only one of the most iconic aircraft ever built, it is also arguably the most effective all-round fighter-bomber of WW2. Armed with six .50 caliber Browning machine guns, the Mustang was also able to carry either two bombs or up to ten unguided rockets.
The Mustang began combat operations with the RAF in April 1942, immediately proving its effectiveness both as a fighter and in ‘Rhubarb’ low-level fighter-bomber attacks against enemy airfields, supply trains and in the close air support role. It was especially dominant in dogfights above 20,000. With its graceful lines, distinctive bubble canopy and clipped wings, the ‘D’ variant rapidly became the mainstay of the United States 8th Air Force in Europe.
Powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the two-speed, two-stage supercharged Rolls-Royce Merlin 66, the Mustang had a maximum speed of 390 miles per hour and a combat range of roughly 750 miles (1,200 km). The use of external drop tanks increased the P-51D’s operational range to 1,375 miles (2,200 km), enabling it to escort Allied bombers on long-range missions to the heart of Germany. The P-51D played a major role in establishing Allied air superiority during the June, 1944 D-Day invasion of Normandy, and in maintaining air supremacy as Allied forces fought their way towards Berlin.
Mustang pilots chalked up almost 5,000 victories over enemy aircraft in WW2. The DCS: P-51D is a superb module. Fly it and see for yourself.
DCS: A-10C Warthog is a PC simulation of the U.S. premier Close Air Support attack aircraft.

DCS: Black Shark 3 is a further development of the well-known Black Shark and Black Shark 2 projects, which are dedicated to the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter.
The Ka-50 is the world's only single-seat coaxial combat helicopter. It can effectively perform anti-tank missions, provide close air support and hit point targets on the battlefield with a wide range of weapons.
The Black Shark 3 version implements new functionality such as: Igla air-to-air missiles, which significantly expand the air-to-air capabilities and a new defence system that detects missiles launched at the helicopter. Also, for the first time in DCS, a physical model of the Inertial Navigation System (INS) has been implemented with all features including: alignment before the flight, drift error accumulation and the ability to correct according to preset fixpoints.
The AH-64 was first deployed in 1986 and some 2400 have been delivered. The AH-64D served as the backbone of the U.S. Army attack helicopter force since 2003. Based on the AH-64A, the “Delta” version is a tandem-crewed helicopter with the pilot in the back seat and the co-pilot/gunner (CP/G) in the front. Armed with a 30mm Chain Gun under the nose, Hellfire missiles and 2.75” rockets on the stub wings, the AH-64D proved its mettle in Iraq and Afghanistan against a wide array of threats.
The aircraft is powered by two T-700-GE-701C engines, and enjoys provisions for both external and internal/supplemented fuel tanks for long mission duration. Protecting the crew stations and critical elements, the AH-64D is designed to be capable of sustaining small to medium-caliber fire. The Aircraft Survivability Equipment (ASE) system includes missile, laser, and radar warning sensors, a radar jammer, and expendable countermeasures.
The AH-64D is a very capable platform at night thanks to the Pilot Night Vision System (PNVS) and an advanced Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) sensor that is part of the Target Acquisition and Designation Sight (TADS). AH-64D pilots are equipped with the Integrated Helmet and Display Sighting System (IHADSS) that projects flight, sensor, and weapon information to their right eye. They can simply look at a target to engage it.
In addition to the U.S. Army, AH-64D variants have also served with the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Japan, Egypt, Greece, and more.
Later in development, our AH-64D will also be equipped with the Fire Control Radar (FCR) that will enable it to detect, classify, track, and engage both air and surface targets with radar-guided Hellfire missiles.
DCS: Mi-24P Hind is a simulation of the legendary Mi-24 attack helicopter developed in the USSR and first introduced operationally in 1972. It has seen extensive action over the past 40 years as an effective combat air support helicopter. Fast, reliable and loved by pilots, this incredible machine still serves in more than 50 countries!
The SA342 Gazelle is a light scout/attack and transport helicopter. It was introduced in 1968 as a result of cooperation between Aérospatiale and Westland Aircraft. Operated by 23 countries, the Gazelle has served in combat operations across the world including the 1991 Gulf War, 1982 Lebanon War, Syria, and other conflicts.
The Gazelle is powered by a single turbine engine that is connected to three glass-fiber reinforced plastic main rotor blades with a bearingless main rotor developed by Bölkow GmbH. It is also the first helicopter which features the famous Fenestron tail rotor.
The version featured in DCS is the anti-tank version that is armed with four HOT 3 anti-tank guided missiles. Later, free upgrades to this module will feature Gazelle versions armed with a GIAT machine gun, rocket pods, Mistral anti-aircraft missile, and sniper team in rear compartment.
The UH-1 ‘Iroquois’ is a light multirole utility and combat helicopter. Better known as the ‘Huey’ from its original ‘HU-1’ designation, the UH-1 is one of the world’s most iconic helicopters. A mainstay of U.S. forces in the Vietnam War, the Huey shot to fame following its starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters The Deer Hunter (1978) and Apocalypse Now (1979).
Known as a ‘slick’, the Huey’s primary mission was to insert and extract combat troops. Airborne assaults in Vietnam consisted typically of up to 10 slicks ferrying infantry, with two or three gunships providing protection and a ‘Charlie/Charlie’ Command and Control helicopter orbiting overhead. The Huey’s other missions included forward supply; search and rescue (SAR); reconnaissance and the medical evacuation (Medevac) of injured troops. The UH-1H can carry 4000 lbs of weapons & cargo including up to 14 combat troops or 6 stretchers. Armed with rockets and machine guns, it can also act as an ad hoc gunship.
Developed in the 1950s, the UH-1 entered service in March 1961. The UH-1H with the uprated 1,400 shp (1,000 kW) Lycoming T53-L-13 is the most-produced variant of the 16,000-plus that have been built since then. The Huey continues to serve worldwide in both military and civilian roles.
The DCS: UH-1H features an updated model of the helicopter armed with rockets and door-mounted M134 six-barrel rotary miniguns. The simulation offers superb flight and systems modeling. Helpful Easy Flight and other modes reduce the learning curve for new players. Player positions include pilot, co-pilot, and door gunners. A handcrafted storyline campaign is included as well as a number of single missions and a training course.
A robust and trustworthy work-horse, the UH-1 evokes enormous affection from former crews. When you fly it, you will immediately understand why.
The Mil Mi-8MTV2 (NATO Hip E) is the armed version of the Russian-built, medium lift twin-turbine combat transport and utility helicopter. The Mi-8MTV2’s six external hard points enable it to carry a wide variety of weapons. These include up to 6 x 100 kg or 250 kg, or 2 x 500 kg bombs; 23 mm and 30 mm gun pods; and 80mm rocket pods (120 rockets - HE, AP, Frag, Illum). The Hip E can also mount 12.7mm (0.5 inch) heavy machine guns in a side pod and on a swivel door-pintle.
One of the most successful military helicopters ever built, the Mil Mi-8 entered Soviet Air Force service in 1967. Able to carry up to 24 fully-armed combat troops, the Mi-8T series was also adapted to fire unguided-rockets. More than 17,000 Mil Mi-8 variants have been built, and it is in use with 50 countries.
The Hip E has a cruising speed of approximately 230 kph, a combat radius of 600 km and can carry loads of up to 6000 kg. It has seen combat all over the world, most extensively in the 1979-1989 Russian-Afghan War, where it proved to be a robust, effective and versatile workhorse. Exported widely, the Mil Mi-8 remains in service with many armed forces.
Developed by Belsimtek with help from a seasoned Mi-8 pilot, the DCS: Mi-8MTV2 ‘Magnificent Eight’ was created by the same expert team behind the DCS: UH-1H Huey. Take the controls and enjoy the space where virtual meets reality.
DCS: Black Shark 2 is a simulation of the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter and the next entry in the Digital Combat Simulator combat series. DCS: Black Shark 2 is a greatly improved version of the original DCS: Black Shark that brings many new features.
The Ka-50 "Black Shark" is a unique and deadly single-seat, Russian attack helicopter that has seen combat in the Northern Caucasus. It combines a high performance dual rotor system with a deadly weapons payload of guided missiles, rockets, bombs, and a 30mm cannon. The Ka-50 is also unique in that it has an ejection seat.
The free Caucasus map covers the territory of the eastern Black Sea coast, including the southern regions of Russia, Kuban, Caucasus Range, western Georgia, Abkhazia, Adjara. The length of the map is more than 720 km from Anapa to Tbilisi. There are 21 airfields on the map, including international Sochi-Adler, Mineralnye Vody and Tbilisi-Lochini. The Caucasus comprises all European landscapes from sea beaches and subtropics, through to mountain ranges to steppes and forests. The highest point on the map is Mount Elbrus with a height of 5600 meters.
Since ancient times, wars of influence over the Black Sea took place in this territory. In the 20th century, fierce battles of the Second World War were fought in the Kuban and the Northern Caucasus region. Modernity was marked by armed conflicts in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
The map of the Caucasus allows you to realise many realistic and hypothetical military operations that depend only on your imagination.
The RAZBAM Terrain Development Team proudly presents the South Atlantic map. It is a beautiful, majestic combination of Argentina, Chile, and the Falkland Islands based on the present day. The topography includes the beautiful and rugged Andes mountains of Chile, the vast and colorful Patagonian plains of Argentina, and the windswept islands of both West and East Falklands/Malvinas islands. Covering an area of 3.1 million square kilometers, the goal has been to give DCS content creators and customers the opportunity to develop missions that reflect the scale and complexity of modern-day operations in the South Atlantic.

June 1940: The Third Reich is preparing to initiate Operation Adlerangriff (Eagle attack), the cross-Channel invasion of England from France. But since 1066, no foreign power had ever breached the shores of the British Isles.
Britain stood alone in Europe. It was the nation’s "darkest hour" - and had it not been for the determination and fighting spirit of its people, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and the RAF, the Battle of Britain would have been lost and the fate of "all Christian Civilisation" put at risk.
Nazi Germany’s failure to destroy Britain's air defences or to break British morale is considered Hitler's first major setback of World War II, and the "end of the beginning". Thanks to this key victory, the Allies were able to use it for the rest of the war as a giant air and troop base. Along with more than 1,600,000 personnel, the United States poured in some 200,000 bombers and fighters, which fought with the RAF to defeat the Axis powers.
Roughly the size of Switzerland, our map of southeastern England and northeastern France includes historical airfields, urban areas, roads and railways, ports and other features that make it the perfect setting for the war in Europe between 1940 and 1945. This highly-detailed map also provides a wonderful opportunity to deploy massed combined arms assets, re-enact epic air battles and enjoy complex and kinetic ground operations for the first time in DCS World.
The DCS: Persian Gulf Map for DCS World focuses on the Strait of Hormuz, the strategic choke point between the oil-rich Persian Gulf and the rest of the world. Flanked by Iran to the north and western-supported UAE and Oman to the south, this region has been one of the world’s most dangerous flash points for decades. In 1988, it was the location of Operation Praying Mantis, in which U.S. forces sank or damaged several Iranian naval vessels, and destroyed two armed Iranian oil platforms.
Featuring southern Iran including the major naval port of Bandar Abbas, the map also includes Qeshm Island, northern Oman and large stretches of heavily-contested sea that are well-suited for combat aircraft carrier operations. Covering 77,220 square miles, the map is roughly the size of Nebraska - or slightly under a third the size of Texas. From land bases in Iran, the UAE and Oman or from the deck of an aircraft carrier, the DCS: Persian Gulf Map offers a wide range of realistic and thrilling combat missions in which to prove your mettle.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly an actual Tomcat in combat? To feel the pressure of the moment, the skills you learned so very recently bouncing around in your head as you're racing toward an angry bandit with 1000 knots of closure? To press into danger after a wingman evaporates from a missile hit? To engage a 4th generation fighter loaded to the gills with deadly missiles and 30mm rounds? Have you ever wondered how you would fare with the weight of the moment resting squarely on your shoulders?
Come join the Grim Reapers to learn how to fly the Tomcat. Prepare yourself for combat with ten rigorous RAG training sorties designed to teach you how to properly employ the most famous weapons system to ever take to the skies. If you graduate by passing all the training missions, including day and night Carrier Quals, you will join the Blacklions on a ship deploying to meet a highly realistic threat scenario over the Marianas. Once you hit the fleet, you will be in the shit, dodging SAMs, striking defended targets, merging with Flankers intent on killing you and your carrier. You will either use all the skills you learned in the RAG and rise to the challenge of being a front line Tomcat pilot in combat, or disappear in a cloud of hair, teeth, and eyeballs. There is no middle ground in combat. Victory or death.
