23 April 2021


Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends, 


The union flags have now returned to full height following the mourning period for his Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Philip trained as a pilot on the Chipmunk and progressed to the Harvard and Vampire. He was awarded his wings by the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir William Dickson at a private ceremony at Buckingham Palace on 4 May 1953. He became a Marshal of the Royal Air Force and Commodore-in-Chief of the Air Training Corps. The Duke of Edinburgh was an experienced pilot and logged 5,986 hours on 59 types. In 1972 Prince Philip, even flew Concorde himself, he was a passionate and very competent airman indeed. Our thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and the whole family. 


This week we would like to bring your attention to DCS: The Channel. An impressive list of updates has been released, including more than ten V1 launch sites and four new UK airfields. Buildings and structures of interest have also been added and we encourage you to check them out. 


By popular demand and in order to ensure that users aren't tempted to enhance the performance of missiles in game, we have locked the LUA parameters.  

Starting today and running to 26 April, a DCS Weekend Deal is running on Steam with up to 50% on most modules. 

We hope that 2.7 has been a successful update for you and would like to thank you all for your bug reports and solidarity in improving DCS World. 


Thank you for your passion and support.


Yours sincerely, 


Eagle Dynamics Team









As our online community grows and grows, we recognise that ensuring a level playing field for all has become an important matter and therefore, on popular demand we have locked the LUA files relating to weapon systems. 




The Channel

Development Report




East Church

RAF Eastchurch remained active between the wars and was home to No. 266 Squadron during the Battle of Britain. During the Second World War, Eastchurch was part of Coastal Command, a fighter and bomber outfit that protected Allied troops and supply chains from the U-boats and the Luftwaffe. By 1943, Coastal Command finally received sufficient long range B-24 Liberators, equipped with enough Wandering Annies to prove extremely effective.


The Command saw action from the first day of hostilities until the last day of the Second World War. It completed one million flying hours, 240,000 operations and destroyed 212 U-boats.





Biggin Hill

Between the wars, the airfield was used by a number of experimental units, working on instrument design, ground-based anti-aircraft defences, and night flying. The base was closed between 1929 and 1932 whilst renovations and the construction of two new hangars took place.






On the 6th of August 1943, 127 Wing Royal Canadian Air Force moved in 403 and 421 Squadrons equipped with Spitfires under the command of ‘Johnnie’ Johnson, the highest scoring wartime allied Ace in European theatre. 


On the 17th of April, 1944. The airfield was handed over to the 354th Fighter Group comprising the 353rd, 355th and 356th Fighter Squadrons who operated the North American P-51D Mustangs. There were 3000 ground crew supporting 70 aircraft. 


Today, as a private civil airfield and parachute centre, it also houses the Lashenden Air Cadets of 500 Squadron and Thurston Helicopters, a helicopter flying-school company.





High Halden

RAF High Halden was a Royal Air Force base in Kent. Opened in 1944, it was a prototype for temporary Advanced Landing Ground airfields, which were required for the rapid growth of air operations to support the growing activities as Allied forces progressed east towards Berlin. 


We have been working on the airfield and the mixture of agricultural field textures, as well as finer details around the bunkers and recognisable remains.




3D Units

Ground Models




LAZ-695 and Liaz 677 civilian buses

The LiAZ-677 is a Soviet and Russian city high-floor bus, the first prototype released in 1963. Mass-produced from 1967 to 1994, assembly lasted until 2002. These were some of the most popular city shuttle buses in the USSR. 





SA-6 Gainful (NATO) 2K12 Kub

The 2K12 Kub-M1 Surface to Air Missile system was initially developed for the Soviet Army Air Defence to supplement the larger and longer ranging SA-4 Ganef. The M1 variant was initially deployed in 1973. The SA-6 is a highly mobile system, and is able to quickly switch firing positions.





The 1S91 Search and Track radar system comprises a tracked chassis with a centrally mounted turret, featuring two independently rotating sections, the lower of which mounting the acquisition radar, and the upper tracking and CW illuminator radar. This allowed the system to search for targets with the acquisition radar, and then perform tracking and illumination with the second radar. This provided much greater flexibility compared to the SA-4 Ganef. 


The combat debut of the SA-6 / 2K12 was during the Yom Kippur war of 1973. The superior low altitude performance of the weapon, and the CW semi-active missile seeker resulted in a much higher success rate compared to the earlier S-75 / SA-2 Guideline and S-125 / SA-3 Goa systems.

The SA-6 has seen use in a variety of conflicts, including the 1982 Israeli invasion of Southern Lebanon. Desert Storm and the subsequent Northern/Southern Watch operations, and the 1999 Allied Force campaign.






The BTR-80 is a wheeled amphibious combat vehicle designed to carry infantry and marines to the battlefield, it provides supporting fire from inside the vehicle. The BTR-80 mounts a turreted 14.5-mm KPVT machine gun and a coaxial 7.62-mm PKT machine gun.


All of the features that we have highlighted in this week's letter are now available for you to use in DCS World 2.7 Open Beta. We are working diligently to fix existing bugs and will be providing an update in the nearest future. 


Thanks again to you and all the community for your passion and support,


Yours sincerely,

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends, 


DCS World 2.7 Open Beta is now running at full power and feedback is coming in fast from the community. Thank you all for helping us with bug reports and suggestions, it is highly appreciated. We are currently also working to improve clouds, water and wave issues and enhance certain terrain features before moving 2.7 to Stable.


When DCS: Mi-24P Hind delivers to Early Access with v1.0 of the ‘Petrovich’ AI, you will notice that it is designed as a human assist tool which requests specific sets of instructions via the onboard AI, whether from pilot to co-pilot or vice-versa. Please see below for more information.


We are also pleased to update you on the progress to Black Shark 3, including the revised cockpit, new external model, new avionics and weapons. This new version of the highly successful Ka-50 simulation should be available this summer and will be offered to existing owners of Black Shark II with a substantial discount.


For those of you who haven’t had a chance to check out the Spring Sale 2021, please be aware that it will finish on the 2nd of May. Hurry over to our Eshop and take a look and the important discounts available. 


Thank you again for your passion and support.


Yours sincerely, 


Eagle Dynamics Team





HIND Multicrew




Petrovich Al's overall philosophy is based on the 'Functionality First' principle. The flight commands interface for Pilot-Operator to Pilot-Commander will be via a virtual HSI offering specific commands and sub-modes. This interface is controllable simply by use of the 4-way hat or 4 buttons (for keyboard ops) in addition to the use of the modern HOTAS practices of long and short presses. 


We also aim to use the Pilot-Commander's line of sight for target spotting and designation functions with transmission to the Pilot-Operator for further target recognition and engagement. A 'human' delay in response times is simulated and is measured from tester multi-crew interaction data and military practice guidelines for target spotting, identification and selection as well as the correct 'click to weapon activation' cycle times of the real platform. 


In addition, we are planning to prepare a special mode for Multiplayer slots, where Petrovich can be assigned limited abilities. These can be toggled per slot and chosen by the mission designer at will. As for the Al voices, we are planning to use two different Russian voices for each seat in the helicopter. Both gentlemen are former operational military pilots and will deliver English and Russian versions. More details will be made available in future Newsletters.




Black Shark 3

Development Progress




We are progressing well with the development of DCS: Black Shark 3 which will give the well-known Ka-50 attack helicopter a brand new external 3D model, enhanced cockpit and new features that expand gameplay, these include.


Helicopter missile warning system (MWS) implementation

Air-to-Air Igla missile implementation


The sensors of the MWS will be integrated into the onboard defense system with the ability to display detected missile threats on the ABRIS.


Igla missiles are similar to those used in MANPADS and can hit subsonic aircraft at ranges up to 6 km. To cater for these new missiles, two new pylons are added to the wingtips bringing the total number of hardpoints to six. These missiles are operated in a similar mode to the Boresight mode which is used on many Russian aircraft. Once power to the missile is on and the seeker axis directed to the target, the seeker can lock on to its heat signature. As the target enters the launch envelope of the weapon, the pilot can be ‘fire and forget’.


Existing owners of the Blackshark 2 are free to continue flying the legacy Ka-50 or to upgrade to the new Blackshark 3 for a very reasonable price. Newcomers will be able to buy the full retail version as usual.









In August 2020, terrorist gangs took advantage of the unstable political situation in Iran and invaded part of the country. The Iranian government has requested military assistance from the Russian Federation. You will take part as a pilot of a Ka-50 attack helicopter in an anti-terrorist operation, with a limited contingent Russian armed forces.


Key features:

  • 12 story missions.
  • Highly detailed briefings with pictures.
  • Hundreds of specially recorded voice-over messages and radio broadcasts.
  • Performing tasks, day and night in different weather conditions.
  • A wide range of tasks, including patrolling, escorting convoys with weapons and transport helicopters, supporting ground forces and tasks to destroy enemy groups.




Thank you again for your passion and support, 


Yours sincerely,

Note that trim signals will be summed algebraically from two seats, except roll trim in which the “left” signal has priority. Emergency trim is operative now as well in multicrew from both seats.
    • Implemented Combined Controls mode: it sends the algebraic sum of flight controls positions from both seats to the Flight Model, with a limit of full travel. The way that front and rear throttle synchronization works is that the last throttle which was moved for more than 10% of full range will take control.
    • Added new command to activate (toggle) Combined Controls mode.
    • Controls Indicator has got additional symbols displayed when the Combined Controls mode is enabled. This will help to see what is going on with flight controls on both cockpits.

  • Fixed blurred labels in the left console (English C-101EB cockpit).
  • Fixed initialization at cold start for heading and attitude reference systems.
  • Fixed inoperative rear seat 'fast erect' switch in C-101CC.

***Weekend News***


7 May 2021

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

This week we released the second update to DCS World Open Beta 2.7 to take care of some pressing issues. We are aware of some clouds jittering with certain VR hardware devices and settings, and we are working to eliminate this and continue to optimise frame rates.

We would like to share our progress on the free DCS: Mariana Islands map. We are getting close to an Open Beta release, and we encourage you to check out the progress report below. Our internal team is testing airfield functionality, and external beta testing will commence shortly. We are working on topographic anomalies, shoreline and cliff textures, and resolve remaining graphic glitches.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics Team

Mariana Islands

The Pacific Supermarket


We are continuing to work on Air Traffic Control (ATC) for the new Mariana Islands airfields that will later take advantage of the new ATC system currently in development.

Internal testing of this map is going well, and we are working to further improve the ground textures and address road network anomalies. Work on improving the ports and shorelines also continues. Our goal is to create the best looking DCS map yet by using our latest terrain development kit tools.


US Naval Base, Guam

The US naval base on Guam holds a massive amount of post-war resources and war material. In the late 1940s, the Seabees construction brigade extensively developed the land and it became the primary docking and storage facility for the Guam-based US Navy fleet. It remained under construction for the next 25 years.


Ordnance Annex

The Naval Magazine for the US Naval base is situated in the south-central section of the island. It occupies 8,800 acres, and it includes an entirely man-made reservoir. It is also the central heating and water distribution plant for the US Naval base.


Northwest Field

Northwest Field became a fighter base in October 1946, and it was home to the reactivated “Flying Tigers” fighter squadron. Equipped with P-47 Thunderbolts, it was assigned the responsibility of defending the Mariana Islands. Weapon stores and bunkers were built between Northwest Field and North Field. These facilities were used to support the long range and intense strategic bombing campaign against the Japanese.


Andersen Air Force Base AAFB

On the 7th of October 1949, North Field was renamed after Brigadier General James Roy Andersen, and it remains one of the largest and most important US air bases in the Pacific. It had a direct supply line from the United States and was considered ideal for B-52 Stratofortress operations. Andersen AFB now supports operations in the Indo-Pacific theater.




During 1944, the 318th was equipped with Republic P-47D Thunderbolts for the Marianas campaign. Working closely with Marine Corps ground forces, the ‘Bolts pioneered close air support and were the first to use napalm. P-47 pilots frequently carried two 500 lb bombs and used skip-bombing against railroad tunnels to destroy hidden enemy trains and stores.

We hope this broad insight into Guam will be interesting to you and we look towards sharing more information on the WWII version of DCS: Mariana Islands in the near future.

Thank you again for you passion and support,

Your sincerely,
