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.

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.
