A small smattering of updates coming from DCS World third party developers Magnitude-3 and RAZBAM that are worth having a look at. We have F4U Corsair updates, the first after quite a while as well as some new images of RAZBAM’s work on the MiG-23 and on their F-15E. Let’s have a look!
F4U Corsair and Essex images
Magnitude-3 tends to do few updates with big status updates with several months spread out between them. We might be about to get a nice big juicy new update as the team has made some updates over the last 24-hours on their Facebook page. The new dimly lit image of the F4U on the whole with the detail image of the wing are both impressive if a bit wistful in that we can’t quite see the whole thing in its full beauty. That reveal is surely on its way.
Meanwhile, back in September there was a small update (that I missed) on the USS Essex carrier that now has a working electrical system with functional lights. And it looks good too! The Essex is a key part of the F4U release as carrier ops are a part of that Corsair experience.
Keep an eye on Magnitude-3 because I think an update might be due soon.
RAZBAM MiG-23MLA and F-15E updates
A lot of people are very interested to see RAZBAM release their MiG-23. It’s a project that’s been in the works for several years now. Recently we’ve seen the MiG-23 project go from various 3D models into a fully textured model that is now being shown off in what appears to be a debug version of the DCS World engine.
This project is still quite a ways away from a release but we’re seeing it take some very significant steps towards that goal. In the past, once RAZBAM have started to take these steps, we’ve also then started to see the flight model, weapons and systems plus all of the various programming needs combined together. So, we’re on the road and the end is in sight!
That’s not all! We also got to see some more testing of the DCS: F-15E and this time its multiplayer formation flying. This is yet another example of RAZBAM’s F-15E starting to make a serious move towards being in our own hands.
In these videos we can see the F-15E appearing very functional and looking good too. Much further along than the MiG-23, I think we will see this module ramp up towards a release status within the next several months. Will it be before 2023? I’m not sure of that but I do think we won’t be waiting too much longer. Keep an eye on further updates here too!

Not related to this exactly, but it was pointed out that the MB-339 is now listed on the Steam database, though not on the sale page. Friday might be the day.

Interesting! I hadn’t seen that. Maybe Friday will bring an announcement of a launch.
Your network of spies is always on the prowl. 🙂
Always appreciate it!
