IndiaFoxTecho becomes DCS developer, continues MSFS dev

The creators of the free MB-339 mod for DCS World have been expanding their team and are set to become a full fledged developer for DCS World and Microsoft Flight Simulator. The project is supported by the members of the Frecce Tricolori Virtuali which means the MB-339 that they have been flying for some time is the first project out of the gate for the team but other projects are likely to follow. Let’s have a look and see what they are planning.

MB-339 and beyond

Today’s announcement makes IndiaFoxTecho the newest DCS World developer on the block although the members of the team are already familiar with at least some of DCS World’s inner workings as they have been modding the series for years.

Of course becoming an official dev means turning the MB-339 mod into a payware module which will likely take some time to accomplish but will likely be well worth the effort. It also doesn’t seem to have put any halt on their plans to bring both a low fidelity and high fidelity MB-339 to Microsoft Flight Simulator and they have already been showing off their jet in the sim.

The announcement also says that they are planning to build other air and indeed they already have a M-346 in the works for Flight Simulator as well as the unusual LONG-EZ. Development screenshots of the M-346 appear to show a relatively finished looking exterior model in Flight Simulator. It could be a worthy follow-up after the MB-339 is finished for DCS World provided enough details are available for the jet trainer and light attack aircraft.

    This is great as the MB-339 is a fun little beast but the Long-EZ…I knew that I had heard about it having an accident but – good gracious – is it cursed?

      As I understand ot, kit planes do tend to have higher accident rates than conventional designs, generally because they often end up in non-standard or unanticipated configurations.

    Seems like a lot of irons in the fire…he’s also got a Skyhawk for MSFS. Although he did announce it’s now a group of developers, so hopefully they’ll be able to release at a reasonable pace.

    probably also helps that they’re developing relatively simple planes, though the avionics on the 346 are quite complex…

    All I can say is that while I like having another DCSW dev, I’m happier to have him/them doing MSFS work, and hope they don’t get bogged down in the extremely low-rate/high-effort dev that DCSW seems to demand.

    Good on them for gpu g big-time.

    The M-346 looks like it will be a nice plane for FS2020, and I’ll probably pick it up if it turns out to be good. I sort of think civilian flight sims are a good spot for military trainer aircraft to really strut their stuff 🙂
