DCS: Mosquito FB VI Released

242111950 10165959531220341 5051158501920706914 N

A great week for enthousiasts of warbirds. After the release of the Supermarine Spitfire for MSFS by Aeroplane Heaven, DCS will welcome the de Havilland Mosquito to its ranks. The Mosquito is a very versatile combat aircraft, that served a great many roles during WWII. It was mostly used as a fast and agile bomber, but also had great fighting capabilities. The plane was also used for photo-reconnaisance, pathfinder, and many more things. The Mosquito flew with the Royal Air Force in the European, Meditteranean and Italian theatres of war. The Mosquito was particularly remarkable because it was built mostly out of wood, to save scarce building materials.

The DCS version of the plane is the Mosquito FB Mk. VI variant of the plane, which is also the most produced version in real life. It’s powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin Mk. 25 engines, and carries 4 .303 Browning machine guns, 4 Hispano 20mm. guns, and 250lbs and 500lbs bombs in the bomb bay and under the wings. The plane also comes with full simulations of the fuel system (including external tanks), electrical system, hydraulic system and the pneumatic system. The flight dynamics are based on official reports, Eagly Dynamics’ own CFD research and pilot feedback. The Mosquito also supports the new internal, structure-based damage model in DCS.

The DCS: Mosquito FB VI is available right now for $59.99, with a sale going on for $47.99. It should be noted that the plane is available in Early Access, and it may contain bugs or other incomplete features.

Laminar Research Scales Back FlightSimExpo Plans, Sharing XPL Next Gen News Soon

242248247 10158028577976283 6870751571064876857 N

Whilst FlightSimExpo is still planning to go ahead next week with both an in-person and online event, some developers are deciding to scale back plans a little in order to keep their teams safe. Whilst the event is going ahead, Laminar Research has made the choice to limit its presence at the show.

Firstly, Laminar Research will be present at the show but with two members of the team. Whilst they are at the show, they have made the decision to not host a booth at the event in order to reduce the risk by extended face-to-face interaction.

This may be bad news for those going to the show, they still intend on presenting their keynote event on Saturday afternoon. However, this will consist of a pre-recorded presentation. During this presentation, Laminar Research will unveil more of the Next Generation of X-Plane to the community.

Another element of Laminar Research’s presence at the show included the landing competition. Whilst the final will be conducted in-person, it has been decided that the qualifying round will be held virtually. More details will come soon on how this will take place. Finally, the Captain’s Corner presentation on Friday will continue as planned.

In the meantime, you can learn a bit more about the upcoming Next Generation of X-Plane in our previous post, where new autogen technology and more was shown off.

As for the show itself, if you intend on attending, it’s worth noting the current news about FlightSimExpo. As a reminder, the show is due to take place between September 24th and September 26th 2021 in San Diego. If you are looking to learn more about the show but can’t attend, then you can register for the online-only event which includes all seminars, presentations, competitions, and more – all for $15.00. You can register at the FlightSimExpo website to get the full detail.
