DCS World dispersion update more than just A-10C, F-15/Su-27 free again

The DCS World Weekend news update is out and while updates were fairly sparse this week, we did learn some important details surrounding the gun dispersion issue that I reported earlier in the week. It has implications for more than just the A-10C. This is what we know!

Corrections, updates, and changes

A post on r/hoggit has lead Eagle Dynamics engineers to re-examine some code and in doing so, found some problems with the way that their guns ultimately disperse bullets. By that I mean the circle that bullets tend to land within after they leave the gun barrel and travel along slightly different paths.

The examination has lead to some notable changes including a drop in dispersion values of 1.5 times.

There are some other notable changes coming as well including:

  • A new mix of bullets for the P-51 and P-47 with M8 API and M20 API/T rounds being modeled
  • Spitfire will benefit from improved ballistics as well
  • The GAU-8 as previously reported will also get a 1.5 times improvement in dispersion
  • No problems were found with the M61 Vulcan cannon, however, some aircraft including the F-16 will get improved ballistics from the PGU shells
  • F-86 Sabre also under review

F-15 and Su-27 free again this weekend

Eagle Dynamics is having another free weekend for the F-15C Eagle and Su-27 Flanker with Eagle Dynamics reporting that they are free starting March 12th, 1030 PST and going to March 16th, 1030 PST.

This is all part of a partnership with the Fighter Pilot Podcast F-15 series that is currently underway.
