DUXFORD, UK, September 18th, 2015 – The Fighter Collection and RAZBAM are proud to announce the pre-purchase of M-2000C for DCS World by RAZBAM.

The M-2000C is a multi-role, French-designed, 4th generation fighter. It was designed in the 1970s as a lightweight fighter and in excess of 600 M-2000C aircraft have been built. The M-2000C is a single-engine fighter with a low-set delta wing with no horizontal tail. It has excellent maneuverability given its relaxed stability and fly-by-wire flight control system. The M-2000C also includes a multi-mode RDI radar that is capable of tracking and engaging targets at beyond visual ranges. In addition to engaging other aircraft with cannon and missiles, the M-2000C can also engage ground targets with cannon, rockets and bombs. The M-2000C is a perfect fit for the battlefields of DCS World!

We now bring an exacting simulation of the M-2000C to DCS World. The M-2000C is highly optimized to work within DCS World and takes advantage of the Digital Combat environment that only Eagle Dynamics can offer.

DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora Available for Pre-Order Discount

dcs-dora

dcs-dora

DUXFORD, UK, June 26th, 2014 –DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora Available for Pre Purchase Discount!

The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics are happy to announce that DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora is now available for pre purchase from the DCS Store at: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 is widely regarded as Germany’s best fighter aircraft of World War II. Its appearance in the skies over France in August 1941 was a rude shock to the Allies, as it was clearly superior to any other plane. For nearly a year, the Fw 190 was the unmatched champion of the air war in Europe. The Fw 190 had speed and high altitude performance as its two great assets.

The development of advanced allied fighters resulted in the Fw 190 D–9 variant which first saw service in September 1944. This variant had a larger nose that housed a more powerful Junkers Jumo engine that produced 2,100 hp with the MW-50 boost system. The D-9 was designed for high altitude aerial combat and is a worthy adversary to the P-51D Mustang.

Key Features of the DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora:

• Unmatched flight physics that allow you to truly feel what it’s like to fly this legend.
• Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit.
• Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse.
• Accurate Fw 190 D-9 model, squadron markings, and weapons.
• Detailed modelling the Fw 190 D-9 instruments, weapons, engine, radios, fuel, and electrical systems.
• Battle the P-51D Mustang in single and multiplayer games.

On August 5th, 2014, DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora will be available from the DCS e-store for $49.99. Pre Purchase it now for $39.99, a 20% savings!

DCS World Going Oculus Rift at E3 2014

dcsworld

DUXFORD, UK, June 5th 2014 – Experience what it is to sit in the cockpit of modern jet fighter like never before! Showing its latest Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) titles, Eagle Dynamics will be pleased to showcase exciting cockpit experiences on the Oculus Rift DK2 (Development Kit 2). Eagle Dynamics is excited about this opportunity to display the amazing combination of its true-to-life cockpits with the virtual sense of presence possible only with Oculus VR. Short of sitting in a multiple million dollar Air Force dome simulator, nothing approaches this experience!

Eagle Dynamics has been developing PC flight simulation titles since the mid-1990s and is the leader in the genre. In addition to developing entertainment flight simulations, Eagle Dynamics also develops “the real deal” flight simulations for actual fighter pilots. No other developer brings the skill and knowledge to make a flight simulation come alive on the Oculus Rift.

By press appointment only, Eagle Dynamics will also be available to demonstrate two new aircraft in development: The F-86F Sabre and the Fw190-D9.

Pre-purchase DCS: Mi-8MTV2 Magnificent Eight here:

http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/index.php?end_pos=1322&scr=shop&lang=en

DCS: Mi-8MTV2 Magnificent Eight is a highly realistic PC simulation of the Mi-8MTV2, a combat transport and fire support helicopter and an upgraded variant of one of the most widely produced helicopters in the world – the Russian Mi-8 (NATO reporting name ‘Hip’). Developed by Belsimtek and Eagle Dynamics, the team behind the hit title DCS: UH-1H Huey, DCS Mi-8MTV2 continues to deliver exceptional realism and immersive gameplay within the DCS World virtual battlefield.

The simulation features accurate modeling of all primary aircraft systems, avionics, and proper functionality of nearly all cockpit switches and controls. Flight and other dynamics are modeled using real-time physics calculations and carefully tuned using actual Mi-8MTV2 documentation and pilots deeply involved in development and testing. The result is not only the most realistic Mi-8 reproduction on the PC, but a comprehensive helicopter model that correctly presents complex dynamic effects particular to helicopter flight, such as: autorotation, vortex ring state (VRS), translational lift, hover in and out of ground effect, and many others.

You are placed in the cockpit of the Mi-8MTV2 to fly combat transport and support missions as the left pilot, right pilot or gunner. The helicopter can be armed with unguided rockets, gun pods, and on-board machine guns. In the transport role, a cargo of up to four tons can be carried internally or three tons on an external sling system to deliver and retrieve supplies in a wide variety of terrain and weather conditions. A series of single missions and a handcrafted, immersive campaign plunge you into the heat of battle in the DCS World battlefield of countless AI and a variety of player-controlled fighter and attack aircraft, helicopters, and ground units. Get online to play with or against other DCS players in a synthetic online battlefield.

A quickstart guide and interactive training help you get started quickly while the comprehensive Flight Manual details the helicopter’s systems and operational procedures. A wide variety of gameplay options allows each player to tailor their difficulty level as required.
