Wags takes us on a tour of DCS: Syria’s Incirlik and Adana

Incirlik Air Base and the nearby city of Adana are the subjects of the latest DCS: Syria map coverage coming from Matt Wagner and Eagle Dynamics and from third party developer Ugra Media. In addition to an interesting tour of this section of the map, we get two additional teases for future content. Let’s have a look!

The tour

Incirlik Air Base is a key USAF outpost in Turkey and is the subject of the latest tour that Matt Wagner takes us on in this new map. Once again, the tour shows us at very low altitudes just how detailed all of the buildings are including the spot where fire fighting crews train the hulk of a dismantled aircraft. We also get to see many of the details in nearby Adana including several architecturally notable shopping malls, mosques, and hotels in the area.

Unlike the past video, this area is notably more colourful and is more green than the arid regions we’ve seen in the last couple of videos. This again is showing us how varied the region both in sim and in real life.

Without further delay, have a look at the video!

Two teasers

First, near the end of the video, Matt Wagner talks about the current state of the map. Apparently all regions of the map are now in testing which is a significant milestone and likely means that we’re getting closer and closer to release.

Matt did talk briefly about the strong desire from the community for nearby Cyprus and RAF Akrotiri to be modeled by the Ugra team. His comment suggests that this section of the map will be added and that Eagle Dynamics will work with Ugra Media team to do it. Great news and a great place for the future Eurofighter Typhoon module to fly out of in just one example.

AH-64D Apache Longbow’s parked on the ramp

Then back at the start of the video Matt Wagner looks over at several parked AH-64 Apache’s and says “huh” which I think is the new “What’s that doing there?” Notably, these Apache’s are AH-64D Longbow model helicopters. A potential new module in the works? Let the speculation begin!

    I say YES for the Apache. Miss my days with Jane’s Longbow 2 (well… still play it with 3DFX Glide 😉 )

      3DFX Glide… now that takes me back! Classic gaming there. It seems like an AH-64 is on the way one way or another.

    I really hope we are eventually going to see the AH-64D Longbow making an appearance in DCS. Having flown it to death in Jane’s Apache Longbow, I would love to fly the Apache in VR.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

      Fingers crossed! I know this would satisfy a lot of helicopter fans.

    Yeah, that was a very deliberate “huh”… Classic in these videos. It would be crazy if we actually get the Longbow.

      It really would be! The Longbow variant especially although I’ve heard from many that ANY variant of the AH-64 would be of interest.

    As a U.S. Army Vet which was a Kiowa Crewchief. I hope the AH-64 shows up on a map like syria we could really take advantage of the Teamwork used by the U.S. Army between the two airframes doing modern 2×2 Hunter killer teams.

      Sounds like a great way to enjoy the new map. ED and Ugra Media are really playing up the low altitude detail of the map so this seems like an ideal Apache playground. Fingers crossed!
