New DCS World open beta with F1EE, Speed & Angels, AH-64 campaign, more!

Another big DCS World open beta update has arrived and this one comes packed full of updates across the entirety of the sim and helps launch a couple of new campaigns plus the Mirage F1EE. Let’s have a look!

Aerges launches the F1EE!

Of the four planned variants of the Mirage F1 announced by Aerges for DCS World, we are now at a total of two thanks to the launch today of the Mirage F1EE. This new version of the Mirage F1 gives us a variant with some additional capabilities beyond the simpler and earlier Mirage F1CE. The EE adds a new ALR-300 RWR for better situational awareness of nearby radars, an air-to-air refuelling probe for lengthier sorties, and an inertial navigation system for more precise navigation and targeting.

The already available Mirage F1CE also benefits from a series of overall improvements across the versions of the airplane. There are bug fixes across the entire product, flight model tweaks, new systems features, and the possibility of causing an engine fire if the throttle is moved to idle before the RPM reaches 300, and more.

The improved Super Matra S530F is also now available adding to the fighter’s radar guided missile punch.

Speed & Angels is here

F-14 fans have a brand new campaign from Reflected Simulations and Commander “Paco” Chierici. This campaign features 10 training missions based on a real world training syllabus followed up by 6 additional combat scenarios over the Marianas.

The campaign has 3,000 voice overs, a fully automated RIO experience, custom paint schemes, and more. Check out Speed and Angels on the DCS World e-Shop.

MAD AH-64D Campaign by Stone Sky

A campaign is now out for the DCS: AH-64D by Stone Sky. 12 missions with a special operations theme has you flying over the Persian Gulf map during a challenging geopolitical situation.

    Nice to see the South Atlantic map is getting ongoing attention.

    No multi-threading though. Too bad.

      I’m sure we’ll see some of those core engine updates over the coming months. That’ll be something that will take some time to dial in.

      Doubt multi-threading will be added to a “small” update. More likely v2.9 or maybe even v3.0.

    I’ve been waiting for the F1EE. Wonder how it will be treated at Enigmas Cold War server. I like doing bombing runs etc with it, and was waiting for the EE with INS for some deep strikes.

    I like the F-1 in concept, I just don’t have the time for anything on the periphery. Also, my GPU has now finally just bought the farm so I have to look for a replacement. Any DCS or GB strong suggestions?

      IMHO get as strong a GPU as you can. RTX 3070 range or higher if possible and especially so if you’re doing 2K or 4K resolutions and/or VR or plan to.

      Sims are asking a lot from our GPUs.
