DCS: JF-17 Thunder od Deka vydáno!

DCS: JF-17 Thunder od Deka Ironworks je nyní k dispozici na DCS World e-Shop  a  DCS Steam

JF-17 je jednomístný, jednomotorový, víceúčelový lehký bojový letoun, vyvíjen a vyroben společnostmi AVIC Chengdu a PAC (Pakistan Aeronautical Complex. Letoun byl dokončen 31. května 2002 a první let byl 25. srpna 2003. První letou byl doručen do PAF (Pakistan Air Force) v roce 2007. V současnosti je již několik “bloků) tohoto letounu provozováno v Pakistánu a Myanmaru. O letoun projevilo zájem i několik dalších zemí. 

“Thunder” je bojový letoun speciálně vyvíjen pro PAF. Vývoj lze vystopovat až do roku 1985. Jako první plán bylo poohlížení se po letounu, který by nahradil dosluhující Shenyang J-6 (Čínská verze Mig-19), ale s J-7M nebyli spokojeni. Po téměř 20-ti letech vývoje byl “Thunder” zcela odlišný od původního J-7M.

“Thunder má bublinový poklop pro dobrý výhled z kokpitu a pokročilou avioniku. KLJ-7 radar umožňuje excelentní využití pro boj vzduch-země. WMD-7 zaměřovací systém pomáhá vyhledat cíle během boje. Thunder je malý ale jde o nejpokročilejší letoun pro DCS World.

Klíčové vlastnosti DCS:JF-17 “Thunder”:

  • Nelineární, velmi věrný 6DOF letový model s reálnými aerodynamickými koeficienty.

Thrustmaster Special 10th anniversary Release

There was an exciting announcement from Thrustmaster this week as they released a new HOTAS Magnetic Base and the F-16C Viper™ HOTAS Add-On Grip. Both of these coming to celebrate 10 years of the HOTAS Warthog™ Flight Stick and to celebrate the release of the eagerly-anticipated DCS: F-16C Viper module.

HOTAS Magnetic Base

Thrustmaster is now giving members of its flight sim community the opportunity to totally customize and build their own dream setup from the ground up, thanks to the launch of a standalone version of its beloved HOTAS Magnetic Base for the very first time ever. The ability to purchase the base on its own gives simmers a level of adaptability that they’ve only been able to dream about until now, allowing them to use any of their favorite Thrustmaster add-on flight sticks (sold separately) with the base — and ushering in a brand-new era of optimized, fully customizable flight experiences for each and every user. The HOTAS Magnetic Base also proudly sports an eye-catching logo paying homage to the HOTAS Warthog™ Flight Stick’s 10th anniversary, sure to appeal both to collectors and old-school simmers looking to give their flight setup a dramatic instant upgrade.

HOTAS Magnetic Base key features:

  • Detachable metal plate for desk or cockpit-style use, with special 10th-anniversary graphic
  • The base features H.E.A.R.T Hall Effect AccuRate Technology, with 3D (Hall Effect) magnetic sensors for surgical precision that won’t decrease over time
  • Super stable weighted base (weighs more than 4.4 lb / 2 kg without a flight stick grip installed)
  • The base is compatible with all flight simulation games
  • Compatible on PC with the following Thrustmaster flight stick grips: HOTAS Cougar™, HOTAS Warthog™, F-16C Viper™ and F/A-18C Hornet™

F-16C Viper™ HOTAS Add-On Grip

The availability of the Thrustmaster F-16C Viper™ HOTAS Add-On Grip, a life-size (1:1 scale) namesake replica of the real F-16C Viper™ flight stick, coincides with the recent early-access launch of the F-16C Viper module in the legendary DCS combat flight simulation game.

Inspired by the incredible success of the HOTAS Warthog™ Flight Stick (still the benchmark against which all other joysticks are judged), the grip integrates perfectly — and natively — with the DCS: F-16C Viper module, specially designed to replicate in minute detail the strike fighter aircraft whose outstanding versatility continues to make it a favorite of air forces around the globe. The real-world F-16C Viper™ is a supersonic multirole fighter jet in large-scale production, featuring renowned adaptability to meet the demands of a wide variety of different combat situations.

This is certainly an exciting chance for members of Thrustmaster’s community to once again access the very best in terms of flight sim quality and feel currently available, in order to truly get the most out of the breathtaking gaming experience delivered by this new DCS module that simmers everywhere can’t stop raving about.

F-16C Viper™ HOTAS Add-On Grip key features:

  • Life-size (1:1 scale) replica of the real F-16C Viper™ flight stick
  • 100% metal design incorporating durable, industrial-grade materials for an authentic feel and maximum product lifespan
  • 19 action buttons in total, plus one 8-way “point of view” hat switch
  • Native integration in the game DCS via the dedicated DCS: F-16C Viper module (core game free and module sold separately)
  • Backward-compatible with the two key joystick bases in Thrustmaster’s revered flight simulation ecosystem: HOTAS Warthog™ and HOTAS Cougar™ (sold separately). Easily place the grip on your HOTAS Warthog™ or HOTAS Cougar™ base!

Although the product is, of course, compatible with all of the most popular flight simulation games, the F-16C Viper™ HOTAS Add-On Grip above all represents a real extension of the DCS: F-16C Viper module, for which — and this bears repeating — it features native integration!

The Development report will move to bi-weekly so we have less of a chance in repeating ourselves. Stay tuned for Development Report #8 next week!

Many thanks to all our faithful community.
