TrueGrit Virtual Announces Eurofighter for DCS

Et58

In their weekly newsletter, Eagle Dynamics, the editor of DCS, has announced that a brand new company called TrueGrit Virtual Technologies is developing a Eurofighter Typhoon for DCS. This new company is led by Mr Gero Finke, a former instructor pilot of the German Air Force who has 15 years flying experience on the aircraft. His team is backed by experienced developers who are recognized experts in their own domain, totaling 15 persons at this time.

Not much has been said further on which exact Blocks were planned for the Typhoon, although it will probably be based on the capabilities of the German Air Force. The screenshots, that you will find below, only showcase air-to-air weapons and a very high level modeling and texturing already. No released date has been mentioned either.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a joint program between Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain, currently in service with these 4 countries and which has been further exported to Austria (who will withdraw them from duty in 2020), Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Oman. Qatar has also ordered aircraft which deliveries will begin in 2022. Among standard capabilities that are common with this generation of aircraft, the Typhoon is notorious for its “supercruise” ability, meaning it can cruise at supersonic speeds without the use of afterburner.

Foxtrot Oscar Simulation Designs Provides 2019 Update

48389783 786058075071522 5131314973196156928 O

Foxtrot Oscar Simulation Designs has put out an update on their Facebook page detailing the status of their in-development Hawker Hunter.

They shared that they are currently in the process of rebuilding the entire systems code from the ground up, due to having access to better and more accurate flight manuals. Additionally, they are now working on an EFM for the plane using more data and flight manuals. Additionally, work is being done on the external 3D model to include PBR compatibility, as well as boosting the texture resolution from 2K to 4K. This should make the model look more modern when the plane is released, and keep it competitive with new DCS releases.

Additionally, they briefly covered their progress on sounds for the module and the issues they encountered with Blue Note, preventing them from including it in the module. Foxtrot Oscar Simulation Designs have also promised more updates in the future with more screenshots while hinting at a possible video demo of the plane sometime soon.

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see. No word yet on a release date for the project.
