F-15C: The Georgian War campaign

8 August 2008. The Russo - Georgian war catches four USAF F-15Cs and their crew in Georgian territory. American pilots came to present their jets before a possible purchase of several machines by the small state in South Caucasus.

Although inspired by true events, this fictional campaign puts player in a cockpit of F-15C Eagle. Throughout 16 missions in the space of several days, he will help the Georgian forces face much more numerous and better equipped foe.

Thanks for posting these Fridge.

I keep looking for the one I really want though:

DCS World

  • now merged with 2.1

(note that is not in the list, it is not true news but only dreaming by me)


Nice update, hopefully something in there has fixed the memory leak issue.

That Viggen changelog though. Go Heatblur!

Careful now. @Fridge doesn’t like discussion in his changelog threads.


That’s not necessarily true … I am just adverse to them getting sidetracked :slight_smile:


Yeah no, don’t worry, write stuff like that… it’s not like my scumbag brain tells me it happened and gave me a heart attack.
Carry on

I think that the best indicator of that is going to be a 2.5 Open Alpha release thread :slight_smile:

So…are the dual pizzas part of the 1.5.7 update then, or is that also pending 2.5?


Nice find!!
Those Viggens were from F15 Hälsinge Flygflottilj, the base where I served as a mechanic…
In the movie they flew out of a forward base on the island of Gotland, in the Baltic sea.


No Su33 PFM? I thought that was August. (Smokin’ Hole runs to the corner, sits hugging his knees and cries into his folded arms. Best to stay away until his tantrum subsides. )

You Mean 2.5, w/ Caucasus 2.5, and 1.5 going bye bye like 1.2

[EDIT: Figured it out. I had to close Oculus. Go Figure…)

Is anyone getting this update yet (8pm US-East 8/23)? I complained that I wasn’t seeing “Buddy Spike” on the DCS server browser and a guy on the forum asked if I downloaded “today’s” update.
