Ve středu jsme si mohli stáhnout rozsáhlejší aktualizaci pro Betu DCS World 22.214.171.12430, která přináší AGM-84H SLAM-ER pro DCS: F/A-18C Hornet. Dále byly opraveny problémy s A/A a A/G režimy radaru a problémy s Litening Pod, ATFLIR a sdruženým režimem Autopilota. Kompletní seznam změn zde.
6 nových 3D modelů dorazilo s novou otevřenou betou. Pro ty, které zajímá proces modelování jednotek je dostupný krátký textový dokument.
Majitelé Combined Arms mohou využívat nové role, jako jsou velitel dělostřelců, velitel tanku, pilotů a JTACS s možností měnit pozici během bitvy. Brzy se také dočkáme rozšíření ovladatelných jednotek o Tank Leopard 2 A4, Leopard 2A4TRS, VAB Mephisto a BM-21 Grad. To vše pokud vlastníte DCS: Combined Arms.
Nové dynamické počasí je stále vylepšováno a nyní byla do tohoto systému integrována i mlha. Simulace atmosferických podmínek je velmi komplexní část a tak se snad dočkáme dalších vylepšení.

Nové jednotky v 2.7.1
EDGE 2.7 přinesl lepší nasvětlení a technologii odlesků pro všechny objekty a povrchy. Toho využívají letadla i pozemní objekty.
La Combattante II
A fast attack craft that was originally designed for the German Navy, and later in their lives passed to the Hellenic Navy. Armed with 4 Harpoon missiles, a 76mm main gun, and a 40mm bofors gun, the La Combattante II packs a powerful punch. Variants of this class were supplied to Iran between 1977 and 1981, and were involved in clashes during Operation Praying Mantis in 1988, which saw the Iraninan La Combattante II class ship Joshan sunk by Standard missiles fired from the Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate USS Simpson.
Formerly Happy Giant, Jahre Viking and Knock Nevis, Seawise Giant was one of the largest self powered ships ever made. At 1504ft long, with a loaded displacement of 646,642 long tons when fully laden, the Seawise Giant was capable of holding 4.1 million barrels of oil. With a draft 81ft she was unable to transit the English Channel, Suez or Panama Canal. On the 14th of May 1988, whilst carrying a cargo of Iranian crude oil she was attacked by the Iraqi Air Force and sunk using parachute bombs. After the Iran-Iraq war ended, she was repaired and continued to serve a number of owners until she was sold for scrap in 2010.
First produced in 1979, the Leopard 2 saw various upgrades before entering service as the Leopard 2A5 in 1995. Powered by a 1479hp diesel engine, and capable of 68km/h over rough terrain, the Leopard 2 is a formidable main battle tank. The Leopard 2A5 can be differentiated from earlier versions by the wedge shaped applique armour on the front of the turret for additional protection. Armament consists of a Rheinmetall 120mm smooth bore L/44 main gun and 2 machine guns.
In March 2001 the Leopard 2A6 entered service with the German Army. The 2A6M is a variant of this, with upgraded mine projection for the hull. It can visually be distinguished from the Leo 2A5 by its longer L/55 120mm smoothbore main gun. Leopard 2’s have seen service with many countries, including Germany, Turkey, Greece and The Netherlands In 2007 Canada deployed 20 Leopard 2A6M to Afghanistan, taking advantage of the upgraded mine protection. The Leopard 2 line continues to be upgraded and developed today.
Developed from the Centurion, the Chieftain was the primary main battle tank of the United Kingdom from the 1960’s to the 1980’s, when it was replaced by the Challenger 1. The Heavily sloped frontal armour on the turret increased the effective armour thickness from 120mm to 388mm. The main gun was a 120mm L11A5 rifled gun, with the then unique feature of having the gun round separate from the charge, which was encased in a combustible fabric bag – this removed the need to store or eject spent shell casings.
The Chieftain saw considerable action in the Iran – Iraq war, with 894 of all variants being delivered to Iran prior to the revolution. Unfortunately, it proved somewhat unreliable and prone to failure during battle, and by the end of the war only 200 remained in service.
Developed in the 1960’s, the BM-21 Grad is a Russian multiple launch rocket system that saw it’s combat debut in March 1969 during the Sino-Soviet border conflict. The English translation of Grad is Hail, and containing 40 122mm rockets that are able to all be fired in as little as 20 seconds, it certainly lives up to its name. The Grad is currently in service with many nations around the world, including Syria, Iran, Iraq and of course Russia.
Also included in the latest Open Beta, is the PT-76 Soviet light tank, the VAB Mephisto ATGM, the Leopard 2 A4 and 2A4TRS, the T-155 Firtina, the AA-7 Airfield fire truck, the ATZ-5 Ural based fuel truck and the 5I57A airfield generator.
To better support both single player and multiplayer gameplay, we are pleased to inform you that the new models of the Leopard 2 A4, Leopard 2A4TRS, VAB Mephisto and BM-21 Grad are now available in Open Beta. These models will be integrated into DCS: Combined Arms as player controllable units. Download now to ensure you will be the first to access these new models as soon as they become available.
We are confident that the ongoing work to perfect The Clouds visuals and the new 3D models will help immerse you in the battlefield.
Thank you again for your passion and support,
