The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics will release their next Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) aircraft in 2012: the legendary P-51D Mustang. The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Possessing excellent range and manoeuvrability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and also as a ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII, and later fought in the Korean War.

 

The DCS: P-51D Mustang will be modelled at the same exacting detail as the existing Ka-50 Black Shark and A-10C Warthog Digital Combat Simulation (DCS) aircraft and it will be online compatible with them. Based on many years of restoring, flying and maintaining Mustangs, The Fighter Collection brings its unique ability to portray this aircraft in its full glory.

 

The P-51D will be the first aircraft in the Flying Legends series that focuses on historical aircraft that have set benchmarks in combat aviation. This series of simulations demonstrates the broad scope of DCS simulation environment and its ability to introduce aircraft from all eras into a common simulation environment. While the P-51D started as an internal technology demonstration, it has evolved into an independent product that adds an all new dimension to the DCS universe. The development of the P-51D and other Flying Legends series aircraft definitely does not preclude the continued development of modern aircraft.

 

More details of DCS: P-51D Mustang will be made available closer to product release later this year.

Tell me it's not going to be compatible with A-10C and BS2 is it?

 

edit. // note to self, READ the statement! it will be compatible. Now this.....will be intereresting if not completely unrealistic. then again, A-10C and BS2 on the same side???? Hell, we make it work and the interopability mismatch is fun to work around.......but a prop?

 

I have a feeling there will be a few 'prop' only servers appearing, a bit like the fps 'guns n knives only' ??

 

Great stuff anyway.

Doesn't really float my boat this - what are you going to do with it? Take off, fly around a bit (to do what?), land and then never use it again. Still, if you love the P51D then I guess you're in for a treat with its DCS detail. I'll be giving this a miss until maybe we have some appropriate scenarios and equivalent units.
