Both Eagle Dynamics and IndiaFoxtEcho have announced that the Aermacchi MB-339 will be coming to DCS World in the future. The announcement was shared on Facebook by both companies, showing a collaborative effort to bring the iconic plane to the popular platform.
In the post from DCS World, they said “we are delighted to introduce the MB-339A Aermacchi by [Indixfoxtecho].” Indiafoxtecho added that they hope “it will be the most complete and realistic rendition of this aircraft available on [a] home computer.”
The MB-339 is a single-engine, twin-seat jet trainer which entered services in the 1980s. At the time, it was used primarily by the Italian Air Force, but is now used by forces in the US, United Arab Emirates, and Malaysia. The aircraft is a popular choice for military forces and is still being produced today.
Whilst no release dates were shared, Indiafoxtecho said that they were in the progress of integrating the aircraft with DCS World and new features are still being added. For now, enjoy the few previews shared by the development teams.
