DCS: AV-8B N/A Update
Testing of the AV-8B N/A is well underway and RAZBAM has been doing a great job of fixing bugs as they are identified by our internal and external test teams. Both Eagle Dynamics and RAZBAM are committed to releasing a quality Early Access product.

Unlike other DCS aircraft that relied on a three-point landing gear system (tricycle or tail dragger), the AV-8B N/A has a unique four-point landing gear system. As such, Eagle Dynamics has created a new landing gear system to support this aircraft. This and other items are being carefully tested.

DCS: Normandy 1944 Map
Since the initial Early Access release of the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map, we and Ugra Media have been working on several improvements to increase its enjoyability and increase its accuracy. In addition to further refining the map for improved performance, we have made the following improvements:

  • Region and period correct water towers
  • Region and period correct wind mills and increased the population of them across the map
  • Farm houses interspersed in countryside areas
  • Several variation of bridges that match the region and time period
  • Removed brick buildings from the Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) airfields
  • Concrete runways for correct airfields
  • Improve beach transition

Here is the image showing one of these new objects that we hope to release soon.
