New F-16C screens and textures, plus new trucks for DCS World

There wasn’t much new for this weeks’ DCS World News Weekend update but we do have a few new things to have a look at including some brand new screenshots of the DCS: F-16 which show off the latest texture work for the module and we get a look at some new trucks seen commonly at airfields all around DCS World.

The latest Ural truck update

We’ve seen a few updates for the ubiquitous Ural truck for DCS World and the latest two we’re looking at are the mobile electrical unit and the firetruck. I have a sneaking suspicion that we’ll see a bit more of these now that they have been updated at the detail levels we’re seeing here.

This is part of a larger effort by Eagle Dynamics to slowly bring some of their DCS World objects up to a far higher level of detail. A few objects date back at least to Lock On: Modern Air Combat.

Hopefully a few more AI aircraft will sneak out before end of the year.

New screenshots, textures for Viper

The initial first few screenshots felt a little lower quality than the usual DCS World fare. I think it ironic that just a few years ago they would have been remarkable. In any case, Eagle Dynamics presses on and these latest screenshots show an aircraft that in my eyes is every bit as detailed as the F/A-18C Hornet which I hold up as being one of the best in DCS World.

One additional image has also emerged on the Eagle Dynamics Facebook page and then was subsequently up-scaled by the community to provide this beautiful image (I can’t find the original source now so apologies for a lack of credit – contact me if you know).

    These new Viper shots are truly fantastic !

    The ongoing update of the 15 years old models is also a good news. But I cannot hide my surprise by the choice of the models being worked on in the first place. Trucks and ground vehicles in general are objects we only see a few seconds during our sorties.

    I would love to see the ED team working instead on the old plane models like the Bears, the AWACS, etc. … These are clearly out of date by today standards and we have a lot more chance to see/escort/intercept them in the sky than contemplating a fire truck from several thousands feet high.

      Well, you do tend to see a lot of those fire and fuel trucks when sitting on the ramp so it’s Not that bad a decision to revamp those first.

    I tend to disagree with you VK, but only a little. I see them as props for the airfield you take off from, and it’s always nice to dress up the airfield a bit. It adds a lot to the realism to have a life like, active airfield.

      My thoughts exactly.
