DCS Halloween Sale

Recommended Posts



23 October 2020


Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

We are pleased to announce that our special DCS World Halloween Sale is starting today and will run until the 8th of November. For our friends who fly on Steam, a shorter but nevertheless substantial sale will take place from the 29th of October until the 2nd of November.

In the upcoming DCS World Open Beta update, we plan to deliver the possibility of selecting desired impact conditions for the GBU-54 bomb via the DSMS page for DCS: A-10C II and via the JDAM MSN page in DCS: F/A-18C. A whole raft of additional features and bug fixes will also be delivered. Stay tuned.

After the initial release of the AGM-65 Maverick for the DCS: F-16C Viper, multiple bugs were identified during the beta-testing period. The next Open Beta will resolve most of the more pressing issues.

Thank you for your passion and support.


Yours sincerely,

The Eagle Dynamics Team

Development Report


The key feature for this updated JDAM is the new autopilot. This weapon now incorporates enhanced trajectory laws and provides the capability of programming for an impact with a specific terminal heading and vertical angle. These options are designed to improve weapon effectiveness depending on the type of target. The graph below demonstrates this effect.


Effect of desired terminal vertical angle on GBU-38 bomb path

Due to aerodynamic restrictions precise impact points are not always possible, in this case, JDAM uses an algorithm to check the impact heading and vertical angle. If the check indicates a noticeable miss, the algorithm will seek for conditions that will allow for an on target hit. In addition, to reduce the probability of a near miss and to improve ballistics penetration, the autopilot will command a zero angle of attack during the last seconds of flight.


Viper AGM-65


F-16C Viper

We encountered a target lock issue with objects in close proximity to the desired enemy. Symbology errors on the WPN page will be fixed in the next update. The seeker depression angle markers are currently being adjusted as well as the Sensor of Interest (SOI).

In the next Open Beta update, the addition of the BSGT option and uncage ability will be added. The LOS handoff indication on HUD can also be expected. The possibility to engage target lock with two missiles prior to launching the first will also become available. It will be possible to ripple fire two locked-on missiles with RP 2 option. We are also working on the TMS-right re-command handoff.

Thank you again for your passion and support,


Kind regards,

Eagle Dynamics Team
