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.

Announcing DCS: Yak-52

We are pleased to announce a new DCS World aircraft that is currently well into development: the Yakovlev Yak-52. This is an outgrowth of a professional, training project that we are also bringing to you.

 

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.

 

Powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, nine-cylinder radial piston engine with 360 horsepower, the aircraft is very response given an empty weight of just 998 kg 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-39 jet trainer, to modern fighters like the MiG-29 and Su-27.

 

Key Features:

  • Professional Flight Model that duplicates the flight characteristics of the Yak-52
  • 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 sounds of the Yak-52 like the engine and pneumatic system
  • Multiple liveries as both a military trainer and civilian aerobatic aircraft
  • Cooperative multiplayer. Fly with a friend in the same aircraft

Spitfire LF Mk.IX: Epsom Campaign Available on Steam

In addition to the Normandy 1944 Map and World War II Assets Pack, we are also releasing the first Spitfire campaign on Steam for the Normandy 1944 Map: Operation Epsom.

 

Fly the legendary Spitfire LF Mk. IX over Normandy in June 1944 as the allies attempt to break out of the D-Day landing beachheads. Battle German forces in the air and on the ground as the allies push south over 12 missions south of the Juno and Gold landing beaches. The missions consist of a combination of armed reconnaissance, intercepts, and directed ground attacks.

 

For this campaign, we teamed up with the greatly respected "Bunyap", who has created an amazing level of detail and content for the briefings and historical background. All missions and flights in the campaign are based on actual missions down to the squadrons, targets, locations, times, weather, flak locations, etc. We believe this will be the most historically accurate portrayal of World War II air combat in a PC flight simulation.

Su-33 for DCS World Released on Steam

Available on the DCS World Steam Store page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/223750/DCS_World/

 

Su-33-render-2017-9_v2-720.jpg

 

The Su-33 has been the backbone of Russian aircraft carrier aviation since the late 1990s and is an all-weather fighter capable of engaging both air and surface targets. Based on the powerful Su-27 "Flanker", the Su-33 is a navalized version suited for operations aboard the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier. Changes to the Su-33 include strengthened landing gear, folding wings, more powerful engines, and the very visible canards.

 

The Su-33 is equipped with a powerful pulse doppler radar and an Infrared Search and Track (IRST) for engaging aerial targets with a wide range of radar- and infrared-guided missiles and its internal cannon. For air-to-surface attack, the Su-33 can be armed with many types of unguided bombs, rockets, and cluster munitions.

Despite its large size, the Su-33 is very capable in a dogfight when combined with its integral helmet-mounted sight and off-boresight missiles.

 

Key Features:

  • Professional Flight Model (PFM).
  • Virtual Reality supported.
  • Highly accurate and detailed external model and cockpit.
  • Wide range of air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons, including internal cannon.
  • Modeling of electronic countermeasures and radar warning receiver.
  • Realistic modeling of carrier landing approach system.
  • Detailed and accurate simulation of the wing control surfaces that include the leading and trailing edge flaps and the differential ailerons. In addition to the conventional differential stabilizers, canard behavior has also been improved for more realistic behavior. The Flight Control System (FCS) will automatically reconfigure itself depending on the flight mode.
  • Includes the wing-fold mechanism, reinforced landing gear struts, and the inclusion of high-gain nose wheel steering for use on crowded carrier decks.
  • Correct physics for the arrestor wire and its' interaction with the aircraft.
  • The engines have a "special mode" that adds up to 12,800 kg of thrust (instead of the normal 12,500 kg of thrust). This mode also includes realistic operating time restrictions.
  • Includes a special FCS mode used when aerial refueling. When in this mode and the control stick is released, the aircraft will automatically maintain level flight. This FCS mode allows fine-control and thus making it easier to make contact with the tanker within a pitch range of plus or minus 5 degrees and of a roll angle of plus or minus 10 degrees.
  • The Auto-Thrust Control (ATC) is used for automatic speed holding and can be fine-tuned with a set speed switch. This can be useful with landing on the carrier.
  • Inclusion of the automatic collision avoidance system ("Uvod" mode) that allows safe nap-of-the-earth flying.

Note: This is the exact same Su-33 that comes with DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3. As part of the DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 series, the cockpit is non-mouse interactive.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet, Episode 3: Preflight, Startup, Taxi and Takeoff 4K Video

This is our third introduction video to the Hornet, based on a Work-in-Progress build. In this video, we take a look at the preflight, startup, taxi and takeoff procedures in the F/A-18C Hornet. While most of the startup functions are now complete, there are still a few more to go.

We and our partners plan even bigger and better things for 2018 to include:

  • DCS World 2.5 by the end of January
  • DCS: F/A-18C Hornet
  • DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map
  • DCS: F-14 Tomcat
  • DCS: JF-17
  • DCS: MiG-19
  • DCS: Mi-24P Hind

We will also be working on improvements to clouds, explosions with improved proximity damage, virtual reality, spotting system, network play, Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR), air-to-air missiles, and performance optimization with the inclusion of the Vulkan API. In parallel, we will continue to support and improve our existing modules.

With the pending release of DCS World 2.5 which will unify our projects and several exiting new modules, we see 2018 as being a great year to be a DCS World fan!

Project Updates

We’d also like to take this time to update you on a few of our projects:

 

DCS World 2.5

Work is going well with all content complete and all blocking bugs resolved! Work though continues on tuning the map and updating paid campaigns that need to be adjusted for the map changes. This primarily entails moving units out of the many new forested areas on the map. We want this move to DCS World 2.5 to be as bug-free as possible.

 

DCS-2.5.jpg

 

We have the holiday season fast approaching in Russia, and we need to give our staff time with their loved ones.

 

Given this, we will be releasing DCS World 2.5 by the end of January 2018. This is not an estimate, this is a promise.

 

DCS World 2.5 will be released as a new download (NOT an update to an existing version).

Modules under DCS World 1.5 and 2.2 will not need to be re-downloaded or activated. Just do not uninstall DCS World 1.5 and DCS World 2.2 Open Alpha prior to installing DCS World 2.5 Stable, as 2.5 will copy the modules over from 1.5 and 2.2. This should greatly reduce the amount of time to update to DCS World 2.5.

 

Any files in your Users/Saved Games folder will not be affected.

Movement of DCS World 2.5 would then soon follow to Steam.

 

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet

We and Belsimtek have been working long hours to bring the Hornet to an Early Access release state. Over the past few months, a lot of our time has been devoted to modeling the many fundamental systems that comprise the aircraft like the engines, fuel, electrical, hydraulic, flight control system, and many others. We are now starting to see the fruits of this labor, as evidence of the recent Hornet preflight, startup, taxi, and takeoff videos.

 

DCS-FA-18C.jpg

 

Before we can release the Early Access version though, there are several important features we need to implement:

  • Weapon HUD modes
  • Moving map
  • Countermeasures
  • Radar Warning Receiver (RWR)
  • Inertial Navigation System for Waypoints
  • Flight Model
  • Further development of the air-to-air radar
  • Integration of new weapons
  • Improve some of the cockpit art, display fonts, and HUD projection effect

Once these items are completed, we plan to release the Hornet into Early Access and we believe it will be an amazing experience!

 

For Hornet news, please consult our FAQ and our Mini-Updates.

 

DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map

 

DCS-Strait-of-Hormuz-Map.jpg

 

Our next combat theater map will be the Strait of Hormuz. All of the fundamental work on this map is complete and we are now tuning the elevation mesh, textures, and cleaning up bugs. We expect to release this map in the not-too-distant future and we believe it will be a great home for the Hornet and carrier operations!

 

DCS: Yak-52

As mentioned in an earlier newsletter, this will be an entertainment version of the Yak-52 we are developing for a commercial client. The Yak-52 will launch our new technology for radial engine dynamics which will provide a very realistic engine performance and management. This will be an extremely detailed and realistic simulation of the Yak-52 that will teach by-the-book training and aerobatics. Work is going very well and we are now focusing on the instrumentation and tuning the flight dynamics.

We’re sure this will be a great lead-in aircraft for new DCS World players and provide a great progression of Russian combat aviation.

 

Happy holidays,

The Eagle Dynamics Team
