The first campaign for the DCS: F/A-18C is out and its a brilliant four mission mini-campaign by SEDLO available on the Eagle Dynamics user files area of their website. This fictional campaign puts you in the cockpit of a Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 in the skies over Georgia as a complex geopolitical situation takes…

Sightseeing in the new areas of DCS: Persian Gulf

Eagle Dynamics has updated and expanded the DCS: Persian Gulf map to include more areas in the northern section of the map and notably adding two airbases/airports to operate from.

Real life Hornet driver comments on his experience with DCS

I’ve been playing flight simulators for a long time and they have always appealed to me because they were always striving to recreate something that few people could experience in real life. Not all of us are going to be fighter pilots in our lives but we can certainly play on on our PC. I…

Putting the CF-18 through it’s paces

It may not be a “CF-18” but it is so close to what the RCAF operates in modern times that I couldn’t wait to set myself up in the Hornet for a series of aerobatics that you might see at an airshow – albeit without the precision, experience, or finesse that the real guys show….

IL-2: Battle of Bodenplatte comes with mostly a fighter line-up, however, nearly all of them will have ground attack capabilities as was the case for the late 1944/1945 time period. One fighter rarely associated with ground attack is the Spitfire although it was certainly used in this role and in some cases fairly extensively. This…
