Weekend Sales and Bundles
This weekend we have some rather large sales on the fantastic work Belsimtek has done on their helicopters. Particularly with the new Normandy 1944 Map and the upcoming Caucasus map update and the new Strait of Hormuz map, flying helicopters has never been so good in DCS World.
Starting today at 1500 GMT and lasting until 18 September at 0900 GMT, we are offering the following sales:
Developed by Belsimtek, The NS 430 GPS navigation system, is an optional add-on module for DCS World aircraft. Starting with DCS: Mi-8MTV2, the NS 430 provides powerful, yet intuitive, navigation and radio communications options to supplement the navigation and radio systems already integrated into our aircraft. The NS 430 is just one of several, planned expansions for the Mi-8MTV2. The NS 430 is particularly useful for older aircraft with less sophisticated navigation and communication systems.
DCS World 1st of September Flash Sale
To celebrate Knowledge Day in Russia, we have a 50% off sale on several popular DCS World aircraft modules. This sale starts today 1500 GMT and will last until 4 September at 0900 GMT.
What is Knowledge Day?
Hi everyone. Just a few things to report this month…
First, while the interior unwrap is continuing, we aren’t yet finished updating the new surface texturing to match, and thus we’re not quite ready to show off the fully painted cockpit yet. Hopefully ready within the next few weeks and ready for our next update.
We did take the time to re-model our fuel tanks (to include bobtail variants on the centerline) and give each livery its own fuel tank skin, as a function of the squadron you choose. We combed through a bunch of historical photos we had of the various squadrons, and tried to replicate the tanks as accurately as possible.
As an example, here’s VA-163 Saints with a pair of 300 gallon wing tanks and six Mk-82 bombs on the centerline:
Su-33 for DCS World is now available for pre-purchase! Normally priced at $14.99 USD, the Su-33 will be discounted to $11.99 while in pre-purchase, a 20% savings. The Early Access release is set for late-September 2017.

New US Trains for DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map
Although we have inner-city commuter trains in the Nevada map, we’ve lacked the inclusion of long-haul trains. Our team has been working on resolving this absent feature. We’ve included three images of the new train cars and locomotive coming to the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map.
This week we released the second update to DCS World 2.1.1 which includes some important fixes like corrected cockpits lights for the P/TF-51D, MiG-29 and F-86F; allow full scrolling of the Normandy map when in the in-game F10 map, and corrected to VR tool tip crash. The C-101 and M-2000C teams have also included several improvements. We are hard at work on many other fixes and improvements to DCS World 2 and the Normandy 1944 map.
You can read the complete 2.1.1 Update 2 changelog here.
Please run DCS World 2 to automatically update, or you can select Update DCS World Open Alpha from your Windows Start Menu / Eagle Dynamics program group. Jatka lukemista
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.
Been a slow summer so far, with more vacations, one team member in OshKosh, one team member traveling Europe with his band, and me just being lazy.
Cockpit unwrap still continues, slowly but surely. Work is still in progress to improve cockpit lighting to work better in the new engine. Lastly, what we can show, is finishing out a few more weapon systems.
We’ve implemented 2 additional cluster dispensers, in addition to the CBU-2/A, which means 3 different cluster setups will be available:
CBU-1/A: SUU-7 dispenser with 509 BLU-4/B anti-personnel bomblets
CBU-2/A: SUU-7 dispenser with 360 BLU-3/B fragmentation bomblets
CBU-2B/A: SUU-7 dispenser with 409 BLU-3/B fragmentation bomblets
