22 May 2020


Dear Fighter Pilots, Friends and Partners

The Free for All event has now ended. We hope you have all found something new and interesting to discover. Please note that the DCS World Steam Edition Free for All Sale continues until the 27th of May.

This week we launched an update to DCS World Open Beta. The update has been optimised to take advantage of the latest graphic drivers and processor performance as we work towards an efficient CPU load management system. With over 200 bug fixes and upgrades, this is one of our biggest updates.

Most importantly, we are delighted to announce the release of DCS: Supercarrier into Early Access. Please take another look at Supercarrier: Quick Start and Supercarrier: Mission Generation and make sure you hit the ground running.

Thank you for your passion and support.


Yours sincerely,

The Eagle Dynamics Team


Open Beta

DCS World 2.5.6


The new Open Beta encompasses a large number of updates to the environment. A number of Campaigns have also been revised to ensure that they are compatible and accessible.

The F/A-18C Hornet and F-16C Viper have both received major updates. We have done what we can to include many of the community's requests, especially in regards to the Hornet’s litening pod. Our third-party partners have also been hard at work with updates to the M-2000 Mirage and the AV-8B Night Attack by RAZBAM. Notably, Heatblur Simulations have released substantial updates to the F-14B Tomcat and the ASJ37 Viggen.

Magnitude 3 have also released a large update, read about it on their website:leathernecksimulations.com



Development Report


DCS: Supercarrier is the most detailed and realistic simulation of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier ever created. In total, the US Navy manufactured 10 Nimitz class ships. Our product will include all 5 vessels of the Theodore Roosevelt sub-class: CVN-71 Theodore Roosevelt, CVN-72 Abraham Lincoln, CVN-73 George Washington, CVN-74 John C Stennis, CVN-75 Harry S. Truman. We know that you have waited a long time for this complex module to deliver. The workload has been intense and we would like to thank all of those who put in the extra hours needed to meet this ultimate deadline, you know who you are. We are confident this powerful new module will inspire every one of us.

This week marks the completion of the first set of features for DCS: Supercarrier. Read about the detailed list of features available in DCS: Supercarrier Early Access.

At Early Access launch, Case 1, Case 2, and Case 3 will be supported. After Early Access will we do additional work to include pattern re-entry after a wave off or bolter, and Automatic Carrier Landing (ACL) support.

If you do not own the Supercarrier module, you will not be able to spawn on the deck to take off or catch an arresting wire to land. You would also not be able to take advantage of the new radio communications, the Ready Room, LSO, Station, and Air Boss Station.

Thank you all again for hanging in there with us. You make our dreams come true!


Kind regards,

It was awesome.  Tried put the F14, MiG 19, Fw190, and bought the Nellis AFB map (home town, WOOT!). 

Where is the flyable F-4, the world wonders?
