I’m really liking the progress on the C-101, well done AvioDev! The updates to the navaids is also interesting. Does this mean we’ll see more navaids across the maps? Time for a radio nav tutorial!

It’s also nice to see continued work on the MiG-21bis. I didn’t realize there were two S-24Bs?

DCS World 1.5.6 Update 3 (1.5.6.4818) has been released!
