Well that explains one or two things…


anyone flew their ZA around yet?


I think the combined L-39 plus the L-39ZA goes to two separate modules soon?

sir, yes, sir!

Now both versions C and ZA are available in one package. Please be advised that the same price for the whole package will be kept for one more week!

No, they will not be separated.


Ah, got it. So more a beta/preorder current price deal for one more week - cool.

I am thinking about buying it also… but I dont read newspapers, that could be a problem :wink:

Typing to find a proper thread to revive with the latest DCS 1.5.3 Update (#4 if you are counting).

The hightlights, for me anyways:

  1. Updated VTB Screen for Jammed Contacts - Which I hope is the fix for the M2000 crashing when it detects jamming;
  2. The aircraft will not suddenly begin to burn when there is an obstacle nearby - which was a quite funny when I first read it;

Looking forward to some DCS 1.5.3 over the weekend!

Here are the bits:
