Developer Check Six Simulations recently announced the development of their latest aircraft for DCS World, the PC-9/A.
The Pilatus PC-9/A is a variant of the Pilatus PC-9 developed for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in the mid-1980s. The aircraft is a single-engine, turboprop trainer aircraft and served as a critical part of RAAF’s fleet for more than 30 years. The PC-9/A was developed from the PC-7’s design, and 265 units have been produced to date.
Check Six Simulations has stated that they are committed to making their rendition of the PC-9/A as accurate as possible. They will model the aircraft using 3D scan technology, ensuring every detail inside and outside the aircraft won’t be missed. The team is also working extensively to create realistic sounds and visual effects and ensure the flight model matches the actual capabilities of the PC-9/A. The developer provided no timeline, but based on the photo previews, the team is making good progress on the detailed modeling of the aircraft.
FSElite will continue to monitor this story and provide any additional development updates.
