Heatblur Simulations has announced that they are creating the Eurofighter Typhoon for DCS World.
The Euroflighter Tyhpoon is one of Europe’s top modern multi-role fighter aircraft and a multi-national product between the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain. 623 examples are in service with those nations and several of their NATO allies, including Austria, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. The type has been used on active combat air patrol missions over Libya by both the UK and Italy, but has yet to actually engage enemy aircraft, while the Royal Saudi Air Force has actively used it’s Eurofighters against ISIS ground targets in both Yemen and Syria.
Heatblur Simulations is developing the Eurofighter Typhoon in partnership with another one of the most respected aircraft designers on the DCS World platform; TrueGrit Virtual Technologies. The Eurofighter Typhoon project has already been in development for over 1 year and will feature all the immersion and realism that the DCS World community has come to expect from their products with both groups making separate public statements promising that this Eurofighter Typhoon will be the most modern and capable fighter in the history of the platform.
First flown in 1994, the Eurofighter Typhoon has seen several production changes since to maintain it’s role as one of the world’s most agile and deadly mutli-role fighters with the Tranche 1, 2, 3A, and 4 models being introduced since. The aircraft uses modern fly-by-wire controls, has various defensive capabilities including laser and missile warners along with various other sensors and counter measures, is fitted with the EuroFIRST PIRATE infrared air-to-air tracking system, and can carry an impressive arraignment of weapons for both air-to-air and air-to-ground roles including new anti-ship capable weapons currently under contract for development.
No release date has been set as of yet by Heatblur and TrueGrit, but a video teaser has been released.
