Community A-4E: June 2017 Update
Mostly smaller changes and refinements this month, as we try to polish and finish various bits of our modeling so we can put those elements behind us. As such, most of this update will be pictures of elements that are recently unwrapped and textured.

DCS World 1.5.7 Update
Today we have released a new update to Open Beta DCS World 1.5, with the primary new feature being the support for the DCS: World War II Assets Pack.
Although primarily developed for the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map, these World War II period units work just as well in the Caucasus map. We hope this provides you another option for creating engaging World War II themed missions.
Purchase the DCS: World War II Assets Pack in DCS e-shop
You can find the complete changelog of this DCS World 1.5 update here.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet at E3 2017
This week we had the debut showing of the Hornet at E3 2017. We were fortunate enough to share the Thrustmaster booth to give a first taste of what we have in store. The demo was received very well and all who flew it came away quite impressed. Our demo station never had a moment of down time. We also had the pleasure to share our Hornet debut with the debut of the new Thrustmaster Hornet stick. We are sure this will be a great pairing.
