Belsimtek plan final release of Mig-15Bis and F-86F modules
 
http://www.belsimtek.com/news/1628/
The relatively long beta stages of our DCS: MiG-15bis and DCS: F-86F Sabre modules were not in vain. We have been working hard on a lot of improvements. With the recent additions and changes, we now feel they are ready to leave beta stage. Thank you for believing in us and supporting us by buying beta versions of our modules!
 
We spent a lot of time and effort making sure that both modules resemble their historical originals as much as possible. A lot of research went into recreating the original cockpits. Especially the Sabre module received a lot of improvements and is now much closer to the real F-86F-35 than it was two years ago!
 
We also changed the flight dynamics of both modules at critical flight regimes. Parameters such as G’s, speeds, and accelerations were already correctly tuned from the beginning, so there won’t be any surprises when in normal operating range. Instead of being scripted, all regimes were based purely on physics already in beta stage. Now, the simulation models also feature well elaborated stalls and spins. The constant improvement of our modeling methods allowed us to model aerodynamic, kinematic, and inertial interconnections more precisely, and take into account the gyroscopic moment of the engine, changes in balance of the airplane (depending on fuel, armament and ammunition), presence of weapons on pylons, etc.
 
 
Besides the above-mentioned improvements, we have been working on the flight manual for DCS: F-86F Sabre. It has the same level of detail as the existing DCS: MiG-15bis flight manual and contains comprehensive information about the aircraft’s history, construction, systems and procedures. Furthermore, we have also created English-narrated interactive training missions that give you step-by-step training instructions on how to handle the legendary Sabre.
 
We are planning to release DCS: MiG-15bis next week and DCS: F-86F Sabre the week after. Be assured that the removal of the beta tags does not mean that development of these modules will come to a stop. We hope you are looking forward to the release as much as we are!

Excellent news. Razbam has stepped into DCS with their Mirage 2000C and really raised the bar fr other developers when it comes to patching and pushing products out of beta. Seems as Belsimtek is also trying to step it up. Let's hope the rest follow suit. I'm looking at you VEAO.......

What about missions & campaigns?

F-86 still haven't got a campaign or interactive training missions....after 2 years in beta....really?

Hello Skysurfer,I understand your frustration.Maybe they're waiting for New,Era Correct Theaters to be completed before dedicating resources/time to this.

**Not saying this's a good business practice by any means** But The Cart was before The Horse in regards to New Graphics Engine(DCS World 2.0 EDGE) and Aircraft modules.

If you read the original post closely, it does mention training missions for each aircraft. I will say that after this length of time I would be disappointed if it's just a very basic set of flight qualification mission. Unfortunately this is all I expect them be.

"Dear Friends,

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Please accept our best wishes for your holiday celebrations and the upcoming New Year. We wish you good health, love, happiness and harmony. Let the New Year bring you joy, new prospects and prosperity. In the coming New Year the Belsimtek team will continue its support of existing products, will join the Eagle Dynamics team for a large new project, and will resume work on another project that had been suspended, which will be unveiled soon. Thank you for being with us and for your support and ideas!

Sincerely Yours,
The Belsimtek team

Remember the Hind project has talk about them some time ago officially by ED, and has active on the ED russian forum section, BSK talking about the Hind. I think the on "hold" project can be the AH-1 Cobra, the second helo planned.

If the winner is the ietm with the more votes, than it's going to be dynamic campaign, which I couldn't care less about because I use DCS ( and IL.2 BoS/BoM/BoK for that matter ) primarily for the flight and systems modelling...

 

I would rather have a good helicopter or a transport aircraft, but transport aircraft weren't even in the list :-(

Well,The Big project with ED could be for "The Battle Simulator" Commercial part of ED's business.I do think the project that is going to be resumed is The Mi-24 which I'm Very Excited about :smile:

Belsimtek activity in 2017

After release of Tiger and Magnificent Eight at the end of 2016 almost all our effort was relayed to development of F/A-18 DCS module in cooperation with Eagle Dynamics. In this project we are handling dynamics, avionics and systems, FCS (Flight Control System) included.

In parallel we continue our work on exciting project for fans of combat helicopters - the attack helicopter Mi-24P (was a long time since we pleased our helicopter enthusiasts, and ourselves as developers, by a war machine with rotor dynamics).

Also we started development of the famous fighter-bomber F-4E.

We are planning to post updates about each project in future.

Wish you to have a great time learning available DCS World modules and hope you will like quality of the upcoming ones.

With respect,
Belsimtek Team"

NS 430 Navigation GPS

https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/modules/ns430/

"

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 particularly useful for older aircraft with less sophisticated navigation and communication systems.

The NS 430 was introduced in 1997 and quickly became aviation's most popular GPS. Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) capability was added in 2006. The sharp, clear display and intuitive button layout of the NS 430 made it the standard for general aviation around the world.

The DCS NS 430 includes:

Dozens of user interface screens

Chapter and Page layout functionality

Moving map capability

Serves as both a communications radio, navigation radio, and GPS receiver

Concentric knobs are used to navigate the various pages, scroll through data, and enter information

Options to configure to displays based on user preference

Note: The DCS: Mi-8MTV2 is required to be installed and activated."
