DCS: World War II Assets Pack Update
In parallel with other DCS World War II improvements to the Normandy map, aircraft, interface, and AI, we are also hard at work adding new assets to the World War II Assets Pack. Today, we’d like to share the following images with you of what is in store for you.
DCS World e-Shop Summer Sale
We are delighted to announce the DCS World e-Shop Summer Sale that starts today at 1500 GMT and will last until 24 July at 0900 GMT. Except for the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map, DCS: World War II Assets Pack and DCS M-2000 save 50% on all e-Shop purchases!
Currently in the Eagle Dynamics update hangar is our Su-33 for DCS World / Flaming Cliffs 3. This carrier-borne aircraft is in the final stages of receiving a big, FREE update that includes much improved flight dynamics and the addition of several new systems. This will bring our Su-33 much more aligned with its real-world counterpart.
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.

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.
