DCS: Yak-52 Available now for DCS World Steam Edition!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/917390/DCS_Yak52/

The Yakovlev Yak-52 is a tandem seat, radial engine, trainer aircraft that served as the primary aircraft trainer for the Soviet Union and many other nations. Introduced in 1979, the Yak-52 has been a popular choice among air forces given its rugged construction, ease of handling, tricycle landing gear, and simple maintenance. These same characteristic have made it a popular civilian aerobatics aircraft in its later years. The Yak-52 is powered by a single Vedeneyev M-14P, nine-cylinder radial piston engine with 360 horsepower. We have created a new radial piston engine simulation from the ground up with a highly-realistic engine cooling model. The aircraft is very response given an empty weight of just one ton and large controls surfaces. Capable of pulling over 7 G and pushing up to negative 5 G, it’s no wonder the Yak-52 has been popular with aerobatic teams around the world. The DCS: Yak-52 provides a realistic pilot training progression from the Yak-52, to the L-39C jet trainer, to modern fighters like the MiG-29 and Su-27.

Note: This purchase can only be played from DCS World Steam Edition and cannot be transferred to a non-Steam Edition version of DCS World.
Key Features:
• Professional Flight Model that duplicates the flight characteristics of the Yak-52.
• Detailed and realistic simulation of post-stall behavior that allows edge-of and out-of-envelope maneuvers.
• Complete systems modeling of the Yak-52 that includes the engine, fuel, electrical and pneumatic systems.
• Realistic, mouse-interactive cockpit in which almost all controls can be interacted with.
• Accurate external and cockpit sounds that were recorded from a Yak-52.
• Interactive training missions included. Learn to start up, taxi, takeoff, and land the Yak-52 like a real pilot.
• Multiple liveries as both a military trainer and civilian aerobatic aircraft.
• Cooperative multiplayer. Fly with a friend in the same aircraft.
• Full virtual reality supported for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft Mixed Reality, and others.

Hornet Update - 2018-08-15

https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3597498&postcount=75

Internally, the AIM-7 and AIM-120 versions now have the improved navigation system. Additionally, the internal AIM-7M now has several significant changes like corrected motor thrust-altitude dependence based on nozzle exit area and atmosphere pressure, adjusted drag and lift curves based on wind tunnel test data, and other changes.

We are now carefully testing these changes before we release and move to all AIM-7 and AIM-120 versions.

Also today internally, AIM-9X tracking was increased to 90 HOBS and flare rejection improved. It's a monster.

Thanks

About This Game

Feel the excitement of flying the Su-25T "Frogfoot" attack jet and the TF-51D "Mustang" in the free-to-play Digital Combat Simulator World!

The Open Beta version of Digital Combat Simulator World (DCS World) 2.5 is a free-to-play digital battlefield game and simulation environment. The “release” version will be available shortly after Open Beta testing is complete. The Open Beta is an optional version of DCS World that we use to first test new content and technologies before moving them to our release version.

Our dream is to offer the most authentic and realistic simulation of military aircraft, tanks, ground vehicles and ships possible. This free download includes a vast mission area of the Caucasus region and Black Sea that encompasses much of Georgia. It also includes a flyable Russian Sukhoi Su-25T ground attack aircraft and the famous WWII North American TF-51D fighter. An additional 25 aircraft are available for purchase.

The download comes with one of the most powerful mission editor ever designed, full network play and more than 156 AI weapons systems, 105 ground vehicles and trains, 50 air defense systems, 19 ships and 84 AI aircraft permitting you to plan and play highly sophisticated missions. DCS World is massively extensible through additional DCS modules as well as user-made add-ons and mods which you can purchase and download from our site.

DCS is a true "sandbox" simulation that is also designed to cover multiple time periods of interest such as WWII, Korean War, Vietnam, Gulf War and others. Current regions to battle include the Caucasus, Nevada Test and Training Range, and Normandy 1944. New maps in development include the Persian, Syria, Afghanistan, and others.

DCS World is fundamentally a deep, authentic and realistic simulation designed also to offer a more relaxed gameplay to suit the user and his particular level of experience and training. The ambition is to hand hold users from novice pilot all the way to the most advanced and sophisticated operator of such complex weapons systems as the A-10C Warthog or the F/A-18C Hornet. The only next step is the real thing!
