This weekend, Deka Ironwork Simulation (DIS) in collaboration with Eagle Dynamics (ED) will be delighted to introduce the China Asset Pack (CAP). This project targets at bringing the modern Chinese assets/weapons into DCS world as AI units. Currently, the following units are confirmed:
J-11A (AI) [Completed]
JF-17 “Thunder” (AI) [WIP]
052B Destoryer DDG-168 “Guangzhou” [Completed]
052C Destoryer DDG-171 “Haikou” [Almost Completed]
054A Frigate FFG-538 “Yantai” [Completed]
YJ-83 Anti-ship Missile [Completed]
YJ-62 Anti-ship Missile [WIP]
9M317 Surface to Air Missile [Completed]
HQ-16 Surface to Air Missile [Completed]
HHQ-9 Surface to Air Missile [Completed]
PL-5EII Air to Air Missile* [Completed]
PL-8 Air to Air Missile [Completed]
PL-12 Air to Air Missile* [Completed]
WMD Multi-function Targeting Pod* [Completed]
RKL609 ECM Pod [Completed]
AKU-170 Adapter for R-77 missile on J-11A [Completed]
PF-12 Adapter for PL-12 missile* [WIP]
*Launch platform JF-17 might not be included in initial release.
CAP will be added to DCS World free of charge. Our future goal is to add more AI units into the package, although details and dates are still uncertain.
During the development, we have received help from some players as they have provided the initial 3D model of three warships. With assistance from ED, the LOD, damage model, animations and model corrections are almost finished. We have also completed ships’ weapon systems.
Since it’s a fan package for free, and the JF-17 developement needs to be focused on later, we may slow down the progress of adding other Chinese asset as AI. But if any of you are willing to help or contribute, that would be awesome and absolutely welcomed!
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
EDIT: I see that winter texture sneak peak, and I Approve. That is the proper amount of snow, ED.
Am I the only one who sees the Ka-27 Helix and desperately wants that in DCS? I really like that helo.
Good to see this asset pack though. Cool addition.
I think it falls under the same purview of the SH-2/3/60 families. Extremely interesting, but not without fundamental additions to the framework of DCS.
I’m with NB on this one. It would be a fantastic aircraft but it would only really shine in an ASW-capable enviroment.
It makes a nice target though
That’s a splendid move from ED, up the nose of all those who were thinking they would start charging for Landing Gear and other crap.
But would those people write anything in appreciation? Naaaah, too much effort.
Much better saving energy for more whining…
Anyway, I’m quite happy!
And who knows, maybe thwy will maybe make a Flaming Cliffs - China module…
Also we could re-enact the last part of Tom Clancy’s " The bear and the Dragon "!
Forget that post Clancy-Epoch Weak Sauce. I wanna see this.
The Heliswiss specimen then? For hauling stuff around in the mountains.
Bloody hell! That was amazing- admittedly I just skimmed its surface but can’t wait to sink my teeth in it!
Love them intel!
That said, the last part of Bear&Dragon was worth the rest of the book…
Well, the plan right now for them is to make a full fidelity JF-17. Having coresponding assets out beforehand is both nice and smart. Considering the shots appear to the caucasus in 2.5, my guess is they’re well on their way for their 3rd party license, and may have acces to the SDK.
Absolutely beautiful! I was wondering whether we’d ever get something like this. One just has to think that sometime, someone is going to create a relevant map module for these beauties to fit into.
