• DCS WWII Updates & F/A-18C Hornet Out

    In commemoration of the June 1944 D-Day landings, we have several DCS World War II updates we'd like to bring you. We see DCS World War II as a very important component of DCS World and it will continue to grow with new features, content, and numerous improvements. We are just getting started.Normandy 1944 Map for DCS World Update

    Working with the UGRA-MEDIA, the developer of the Normandy map, we will be releasing a free update to this map in June. This map is the ideal battleground for our warbirds that focuses on northern France in the summer on 1944.

    Coming improvements include:

    • More detailed objects and realistic airfield textures. The textures now reflect the more dusty, lighter, sandy surfaces
    • Removal of permanent structures from ALG airfields
    • Concrete surfaces for the airfields of Evreux, Carpiquet, and Tangmere
    • Shallow water zones along the coastal areas
    • New stone bridges
    • More structures like farm houses outside the detailed areas of the map
    • Added more objects like windmills
    • Improved performance

    Free DCS: World War II Assets Pack Update

    To provide a more realistic and populated World War II environment, new assets are being added to the World War II assets pack this month.

    Some of these new units include:

    • M12 gun motor carriage
    • M30 cargo carrier
    • M2A1/M3 halftrack
    • StuG IV
    • Sd.Kfz. 234/2 "Puma"
    • Sd.Kfz. 7 artillery tractor
    • Sd.Kfz. 251
    • Sd.Kfz. 2 Kettenkrad
    • Horch staff car
    • Barrage balloons
    • LCVP Higgins boats
    • UK soldier

    There is no additional charge for all of these new units.

    Many new air, ground and sea units will be coming in later updates.

    DCS Spitfire LF Mk.IX

    Spitfire LF Mk.IX Update

    Also this month will see the completion of the Spitfire with a clipped wing version, the ability to carry bombs, and the ability to mount both a slipper tank or external fuel tank. The will give our Spitfire far more mission capability like cross-channel patrols and ground attacks.

    This will make the DCS Spitfire an incredibly accurate simulation of the Spitfire LF Mk.IX, with a fully interactive cockpit, detailed sub-systems, and a professional flight model. Based on hands-on feedback from pilots that have hundreds of hours in the Spitfire LF Mk.IX, we are very proud of this showcase title.

    Static Templates Coming to DCS World

    Static Templates are sets of objects that can be placed on the map and saved as a single entity. After a template is created, it can be saved and shared with others. Multiple instances of a Static Template can then be placed to create more interesting and populated missions. In addition to statics, AI units can also be placed in the template.
