DCS World seems set to make a big jump when it comes to Cold War content over the next couple of years with the F-8J, MiG-17 and A-7 Corsair II part of a collection of new period aircraft that compliment the types that are already available. There are a couple of Cold War servers out there but Engima’s Dynamic Cold War server looks set to bring some innovative features to the mix that may appeal. Let’s have a look!
Fans of IL-2’s Finnish Virtual Pilots and Air Attack Tactical Combat multiplayer servers will have a sense of what this is all about. Objectives on the frontlines will determine the state of play unlocking airbases and moving the frontline back and forth as both teams vie for control of the map. Engima’s Dynamic Cold War server brings that same concept the the fore with 20-zones of control working their way across the Caucasus map.
The aircraft set is mid-coldwar with a mix of types from the F-86, MiG-15 and MiG-19 to the F-5 and MiG-21 with a smattering of F-14A and MiG-29A mixed in for good measure. Flaming Cliffs 3 owners aren’t left out either as the Su-25 and A-10A are also included in the aircraft set. So too are some helicopters including the Mi-24P.
Destroy units on the frontlines and take out more strategic targets to move the frontlines in your teams favour. On the flipside, successful defense will also contribute to the scenario’s evolution. The best part of it is that the server can dynamically update the frontlines mid scenario with no server reset required.
