Improved blending of material types

Correct ship ATC radios by adding new ATC client information for carriers
Helicopters can once again land on the Kuznetsov
Added network synch for arrestor cable

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and Persian Gulf Map for DCS World Update
As we rapidly approach the release of the Hornet and Persian Gulf map this month, we are now pleased to announce the exact release dates. We will first release the Persian Gulf Map for DCS World on 23 May 2018 and then DCS: F/A-18C Hornet on 30 May 2018! We will release both this month as promised.
In order to meet your expectations for the Hornet early access release, we decided to move the Hornet release to shortly after the Persian Gulf Map release. Items we still need to complete are:
Completed radar-directed AA Gun, AIM-9, and AIM-7 symbology
AUTO bombing mode
Radar contacts on the Electronic Warfare (EW) Page
The Moving Map
We believe these are all vital for a great early access release.
Please also note that the Pre-Purchase discounts for the Hornet and Persian Gulf map will soon be ending with the release of the early access versions. Act now for a significant discount:
DCS World 2.5.1 Update
We are currently preparing and testing an update to the 2.5.1 Open Beta. This update should address a number of issues like the metashader error, VR audio device selection, A-10C and Ka-50 datalink errors, FLIR image quality, and others.
We would also like to thank those that took part in the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta. We can’t overstate our appreciation enough to those that have helped DCS World become even better. This amazing community is a large part of what makes DCS World such a unique and great product. Thank you!
As always, a full changelog will be available when the update is published.
ADM-141B TALD Coming to DCS World
One of the new munitions that will be coming with our DCS: F/A-18C Hornet is the ADM-141 Tactical Air Launched Decoy (TALD). The TALD mimics the radar cross section of a fighter-sized aircraft by use of Lungberg lenses, and it is capable of releasing chaff bundles. With a maximum glide range of 120 km, the TALD can be used to “bait” hostile radars to reveal their locations for follow-on Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) attack. The F/A-18C can carry up to six TALDs.
