This week we released DCS World Open Beta Update #9. Highlights of this update include:

  • Several more modules have been moved to the keyless protection system. These include the NTTR and Normandy maps, WWII Assets Pack, Spitfire, Su-33, AJS-37 Viggen, and the M-2000C. These modules are now tied to users accounts rather than keys
  • Many new Hornet additions to include preliminary AIM-9X, AIM-120 active and time-to-go timers, AIM-120 VISUAL mode and AIM-7 LOFT mode, EW page symbols, EW HUD, EW Offset, increased of ICLS needles size, and eliminated deck sliding after landing
  • Many new AJS-37 Viggen changes like corrected mirror reflections, adjusted normal maps, fixes to the SPA mode, custom cartridge settings, and others
  • Yak-52 changes include corrected textures for the 3-bladed prop, hide stick option added, tool tip improvements, primer animation corrected, and more

You can read more about these and many others in the dedicated thread on the DCS forum.

SS-1C Scud-B

Earlier we have showed off work-in-progress images of some new units coming to DCS World like the SA-2 and Rapier SAM systems and the HY-2 "Silkworm" anti-ship cruise missile. This week we’d like to show you the first images of the SS-1C Scud-B short-range ballistic missile.

First developed by the Soviet Union in the 1960s, the Scud-B (Russian Theater Ballistic Missile system 9К72 Elbrus with missile 8K14 or R-17) has been fielded by more than 32 countries, has a range of up to 300 km, a 450 meter accuracy, and a 985 kg high-explosive warhead. The Scud-B is a mobile system that is transported and launched from a MAZ-543 Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) (Russian index 9P117).

The Scud-B was infamous during the first Gulf War and will play a critical target for missions and campaigns in the Persian Gulf map and others.

Trailer video

The Yakovlev Yak-52 is a tandem seat, radial engine, trainer aircraft that served as the primary aircraft trainer for the Soviet Union and many other nations. Introduced in 1979, the Yak-52 has been a popular choice among air forces given its rugged construction, ease of handling, tricycle landing gear, and simple maintenance. These same characteristic have made it a popular civilian aerobatics aircraft in its later years. The Yak-52 is powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, nine-cylinder radial piston engine with 360 horsepower. We have created a new radial piston engine simulation from the ground up with a highly-realistic engine cooling model. The aircraft is very response given an empty weight of just one ton and large controls surfaces. Capable of pulling over 7 G and pushing up to negative 5 G, it’s no wonder the Yak-52 has been popular with aerobatic teams around the world. The DCS: Yak-52 provides a realistic pilot training progression from the Yak-52, to the L-39C jet trainer, to modern fighters like the MiG-29 and Su-27.

Yak-52

Key Features:

  • Professional Flight Model that duplicates the flight characteristics of the Yak-52
  • Detailed and realistic simulation of post-stall behavior that allows edge-of and out-of-envelope maneuvers
  • Complete systems modeling of the Yak-52 that includes the engine, fuel, electrical and pneumatic systems
  • Realistic, mouse-interactive cockpit in which almost all controls can be interacted with
  • Accurate external and cockpit sounds that were recorded from a Yak-52
  • Interactive training missions included. Learn to start up, taxi, takeoff, and land the Yak-52 like a real pilot
  • Multiple liveries as both a military trainer and civilian aerobatic aircraft
  • Cooperative multiplayer. Fly with a friend in the same aircraft
  • Full virtual reality supported for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft Mixed Reality, and others
Sincerely,
The Eagle Dynamics Team
