Mirage F1 EE

Development Report

Hero2.png

The Aerges team is delighted to present the DCS: Mirage F1 EE, the aerial refueling capable version of the Spanish Air Force. This version also brings desirable capabilities such as the inertial navigation system and the new ALR-300 RWR, which includes a display, threat priority and specific threat warnings. The capability to equip the old RWR remains. The Mirage F1 EE (as well as the BE and M) is a core part of the DCS: Mirage F1 module, so no additional purchase is required to fly it.

Hero3.png

Many other improvements are also available in the latest Mirage F1 update. One of the main focuses has been on polishing the pitch control and flight model, increasing the pitch up range, and adjusting drag values. The engine stall and the throttle controls have also been partially reworked. The radar has also seen multiple fixes such as elevation control, TL scan pattern, and target lock stability in 1-line scan mode. Finally, the S530F radar missile has been added. This weapon, which was extremely advanced for the era, is one of many other enhancements to this superb module.

Aerges will continue to work over the coming months to add even more improvements to the FM, radar, and RWR. They are also developing the BE and M versions which we hope will be available in the not too distant future.

03 February 2023

 

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,:pilotfly: 

The DCS: F-15E by RAZBAM is making excellent progress, and the 15th of February 2023 is now the planned pre-order release date. Thank you for your patience, and stay tuned for more information about this eagerly awaited module. 

Author, podcaster, and photographer Steve Davies will be including, free of charge, his digital book: F-15E Be Afraid of the Dark (Part 1) with each purchase of the DCS: F-15E! This is a riveting story encompassing the operational history of the F-15E Suite 3E standard up to 2002. 

To bring you up to speed on flying and operating the Strike Eagle, RAZBAM has teamed up with “Notso” to create a series of F-15E instructional videos, please take this opportunity and watch the DCS: F-15E Strike Eagle Tutorial Series

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely, 

Eagle Dynamics

 

F-15E Preview

Strike Eagle

Hero1.png

The DCS: F-15E Strike Eagle by RAZBAM has entered our final validation and testing phase. The  pre-order, which comes with a 30% discount, is currently planned for the 15th of February, 2023. Once the pre-order begins, we anticipate the F-15E to be released into Early Access a few months later and perhaps sooner.

 

Be Afraid Of the Dark (Part 1) 

F-15E Digital Book

Hero2.jpg

Be Afraid of the Dark (Part 1) tells the story of the F-15E Strike Eagle’s inception, development, entry into service and operational history up to 2002 (Suite 3E standard).

Based on extensive original research at Boeing’s historical archives, interviews with the men and women who turned the idea of an air-to-ground optimised Eagle into a reality, and access to the front-line crews who rode the aircraft into combat between 1990 and 2002, the book totals 100,000 words of insight, technical discussion and anecdote, all gloriously illustrated by 150 colour images.

This impressive book was authored by Steve Davies, a highly reputed military aerospace defence writer, host of the 10 Percent True podcast, and occasional co-author and contributor to DCS campaigns. Steve has revised portions of the original text and re-imagined the design of the book for this unique partnership between 10 Percent True, RAZBAM and Eagle Dynamics, and we hope it makes your experience of flying the mighty Strike Eagle even richer and more fulfilling.

Steve plans to revisit the text to include F-15E developments and operations between 2003 and 2023. This will be available in time through his website as Be Afraid of the Dark (Part 2).

 

F-15E Instruction

Notso Tutorial Series

Hero3.png

As with most 4th generation fighters, the F-15E is a highly-complex aircraft to master. In addition to the manual and included training missions, RAZBAM has teamed up with former F-15E Weapon System Officer (WSO) to create a series of DCS: F-15E instructional videos. We highly recommend watching them to get a headstart learning this beast.

Thank you again for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,
