It’s been several weeks since the last one but the temporary drought is over as RAZBAM have released a new tutorial video for their upcoming and hotly anticipated DCS: F-15E. This new tutorial goes over some key systems such as the NAVFLIR which anyone flying a night mission is going to love.
Fly at night, like it was the day
Even if you aren’t a fan of the F-15 or the F-15E specifically, you have to appreciate the sophistication that’s on display in this latest video. The F-15E that we’re getting is circa the early 2000’s and even at that point it was an immensely capable jet with some impressive technologies.
In this new video we get to see quite a bit of the F-15E in operation including a night time take-off, the nav systems in operation, and quite a bit of the radar. Of course, the primary goal of this video is to familiarize us all with the NAVFLIR which can be used for navigation at night time. It even projects the image onto the HUD giving you a very clear indication of what is ahead even in very low light.

Other F-15E news
We’re hearing via various comments on r/hoggit with screenshots coming elsewhere that the DCS: F-15E has entered into testing and review with Eagle Dynamics. A few people have tagged me on that news so thank you for doing that!
At this point I’d say that it’s not big news… yet!
The review process can be long with recent examples being the DCS: Mirage F1 and DCS: MB-339 which both had multi-month review processes. Although the F-15E likely commands an even higher anticipation level, it may still be a ways out while that process concludes. We’ll have to see and when more news about this comes out I will report more in-depth on it.
There’s also word that a pre-order is going to be offered with the DCS: F-15E. Again, I’ll be looking for some more details to come out there on what that will look like, what the lead time to release will be, and what (if any) discounts are offered on the pre-order.
