About This Content

Mit DCS: Combined Arms erhalten Sie die volle Kontrolle über die Bodenstreitkräfte auf dem Schlachtfeld. Benutzen Sie die taktische Karte, um Einheiten zu bewegen, Feuerbefehle für die Artillerie zu erteilen oder den Bodenkampf zu führen. Übernehmen Sie die Rolle eines JTAC (Fliegerleitoffizier) und markieren Sie Ziele für die verbündeten Flugzeuge, oder steigen Sie direkt in eines der zahlreichen Bodenfahrzeuge, inklusive Schützenpanzer und Luftabwehrsysteme, um den Angriff auf den Gegner selbst durchführen.

Nutzen Sie DCS: Combined Arms als Echtzeitstrategiespiel, als Teil der Fahrzeugbesatzung, oder führen Sie die Bodentruppen vom Cockpit der A-10C Warthog, des Ka-50 Black Shark oder der P-51D Mustang aus.

Combined Arms lässt sich sowohl im Einzel- wie im Mehrspielermodus nutzen. Im Einzelspielermodus führt man Missionen aus Sicht des Kommandanten der Bodentruppen durch, oder befehligt Bodeneinheiten vom Cockpit seines Flugzeugs aus. Es ist nun nicht mehr notwendig, darauf zu hoffen, dass die KI-Bodeneinheit die richtige Entscheidung trifft. Im Multiplayermodus spielt Combined Arms das volle Potential aus. Es kann sowohl kooperativ wie gegeneinander mit bis zu 32 Spielern gespielt werden, die alle verschiedene Boden- oder Luftfahrzeuge steuern oder spezielle Kommandoaufgaben übernehmen. Das echte digitale Schlachtfeld ist damit realisiert!

Features of the DCS: Combined Arms:

  • Befehlige Luft- und Bodeneinheiten in der Schlacht.
  • Sei der Fliegerleitoffizier (JTAC) und markiere Angriffsziele.
  • Spring in viele Bodenfahrzeuge (Panzer, Schützenpanzer und Luftabwehreinheiten) und überrasche Deine Gegner!
  • Spiele sowohl im Einzel- als auch im Mehrspielermodus
  • Sowohl große wie auch kleine Missionen enthalten.
  • Ein Teil von DCS World

This is a great game. You can layout your battles and take control of the units involved. I use this while my friends are flying aircraft. I like the ability to mark targets with smoke and allow my friends flying A10's to take out the enemy. This game is a simulator and should not be compaired with games like BF4 as they have no realism included in them.

This is one of the addons i was unsure of although reading the first two reveiws on here were thumbs down id like to clarify this is a simiulator and yes there is a manual. but thats not what this is about its the simple fact that if you like ground units AAA, Tanks, APCs/IFV/AFV; this Addon is for you but just a note (YOU NEED A MISSION IN WITCH GROUND UNITS ARE PLAYABLE). as far as learning this addon its quite easy becuase if you are familar with dcs products you should know THEY ALL HAVE MANUALS. if youre too fustrated with the steep learning curve go back to Call of duty (number goes here) and battle field (Number goes here). but this is a simulator not a oh click the big ♥♥♥ button and spawn in what you want game this game is wait scratch that simulator is supposed to give you that feeling of one time one life thing that battle field or Cod cant give you. but lets be real this is DCS we cant compare it to that this literally has no competitors that have this detail. hopefully i helped you out and maybye changed your mind from the guy below who doesnt know how to create a mission nor find a multiplayer game in witch has this.

All other manuals and addons can be found on their website.

It is fun to play as the ground units and lead tank formations into battle but dont expect the same quality as the other modules. This feels more of something the devs added like a "Since we have some spare time lets make the tanks drivable for players" thing. Its good but not up to the same level. If your expecting a tank sim try steel beasts that game is a true tank sim while this game focuses more on aircraft.

The way i use Combined Arms and really have fun:
- go to mission editor,
- by generate option make mission with many vehicles, helicopters,
- add commander option for both sides red and blue in editor
- set time and weather you want
- save and play

Command all units (air land sea ! ) of your side and win battle :)

One thing i miss: I can't repair\ reload my groups of helicopters

In short, Combined Arms is a module that lets you control ground forces - and little else.

There is much potential behind this module - and currently I'd say it falls somewhere between the Battlefield series and Steel Beasts, but there is still much left to be desired when you try to jump into a vehicle.

-AI has no visibiility restrictions - AI units can acquire/engage units through forests. This puts players at a great disadvantage for locating/acquiring targets.

-There is no vehicle damage model - Vehicles work off of a hit-point system. There are no firepower or mobility kills, only kills. There is also no way to 'repair' vehicles in game.

-There is a nasty bug that allows projectiles (cannon, machine gun, etc) to pass through objects, making it impossible to kill certain units.

-There are reload bugs that 'lock' units, and prevent them from being playable after they attempt to reload.

-Poor thermal imaging for ground units. Several vehicles are also missing thermals, but the ground forces thermals are so poor that it is pointless to use them.

Lots of bugs and shortfalls with CA; hopfeully ED can fix the bugs and continue this module.

I would say its a must have but not every one gets the Combined Arms role in DCS. This is the boots on ground addon that will let you command Tanks / AAA / Light infantry / Radars /etc... That being said. Its on the dificulty level of flaming cliffs products, which is the easiest ypou can get.

- If you like the tactical commander role, and understand RTS it will fill your expectations i guess.

If you want something that runs outta the box and you need tutorials etc.. this is not for you. You go do something else..

There is no dynamic campagin or on-line dynamic campagin (join leave and choose automatic generated mision to do). In online misions you have to drive LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG distances to reach destination and then get killed, because those missions are made mailny for pilots than for ground players.
If you count that you can play something like BF ar ARMA but on simulation level dont buy it. There is no misions/campagins where you can cap/defend towns preform offensive and cooperate with pilots.
This game is called DCS - Digital Combat Simulator but in my opinion name is wrong for this product, because its a simulator good ONLY for pilots!!!! It can not simulatote COMBAT both for ground and air units, it can not simulate large military manoovers. In real world planes only supports ground operations and the ground forces are the most important- in DCS the most important is plane.
Of course we have mission editor and there you can script something BUT IT TAKES THOUSENDS OF HOURS!!!!! I paid for paly it, not to become game developper!!!!
And developpers doesnt care about it. Its beter to produce more modules for not finished "wrold" because its easier and faster to do than realy needed stuff like dynamic campagin.

Don't. Buy some other module. And if you own every DCS module (Steam and non-Steam), burn your cash instead. It's funnier than owning this module.
