The Christen Eagle II touches on many aspects not previously explored in DCS World. It aims to capture the unique experience of flying an aerobatic biplane capable of maneuvers previously not possible. The Christen Eagle II is an-easy-to fly airframe with a constant-speed propeller, and it includes inverted fuel and oil systems that allow the pilot to concentrate on the flight maneuvers.

Modern Air Combat (MAC) Update
Since the announcement of MAC, we have been listening to customer feedback and we have been busy expanding the product to maximize your enjoyment. In addition to the 14 aircraft and four maps, we’ve been engaged with the following features that will bring the product to the next level flight game entertainment:
- A redesigned Mission Generator that allows you to easily create exciting missions based on a selected mission type. This will provide a much more focused and fun gameplay experience that is designed around action and fun.
- An entirely new interface. MAC will feature a very modern, intuitive and beautiful interface that will feel at home in 2018!
- Taking advantage of the new Dedicated Server system, MAC will allow you to earn accomplishments and points that you can then use to purchase DCS World products. The new system has a detailed point-earning system that is also tied to leader boards and record scores.
- Enhanced assists to help new players will come with MAC like auto-trim, navigation and target marker locations, and unified control inputs.
All of this will result in a much better product, but it has extended our development time. We look forward to bringing you MAC in the 2019!
DCS: BAE Hawk Update
We regret to inform you that VEAO is no longer a developer for DCS World. As such, they have also ceased support of their Hawk. Although we offered to support their product, they declined making the files available to do so.
Given this unfortunate situation, we will fully refund all Hawk customers that purchased the module starting from 1 October 2018. If you wish a full refund, please enter a support request here.
For those that purchased the Hawk prior to 1 October 2018, will continue to make DCS World 2.5.3 available, such that you can still fly the Hawk.
To avoid such issues in the future, all future 3rd party agreements are now required to make the game files available in case they are no longer able to support their product.
DCS World Updates
Due to the holidays and our staff taking some much-needed time off, our next DCS World update will be 16 January 2019.
Happy New Year!
