Latest Patch Out Now


After the eagerly awaited launch of the DCS: AH-64D, we are pleased to provide you with a hotfix that resolves multi crew synchronisation errors and the ability to reset controls to trim-centre. A SCAS status indicator was also added and a substantial number of bugs have been crushed.

This hotfix has also been an opportunity for us to address outstanding bugs across many DCS modules. We kindly remind you that the new FLIR technology is still WIP, particularly for fixed wing aircraft like the A-10C. For details, please read the full changelog.

Operation Cerberus North

Campaign by Ground Pounders


Committed to protecting Syrian civilians, the NATO forces under the ‘Joint Syrian Task Force’ have launched Operation Cerberus North to establish a series of no fly zones across Syria.  As the chain of events in this deadly conflict develops, the regional powers are put on a collision course towards all out war.

Campaign by Stone Sky


Mutually Assured Destruction 

This campaign centres on a gripping story about a PMC pilot named Anton Orlovskii that is based near the Strait of Hormuz. Recently, the USA has strengthened its forces in the region and intelligence suggesting Iran possesses nuclear warheads has thrown fuel on the fire. Engage in air-to-air helicopter combat and carry out tasks as the flight leader or wingman.
