New Features:

DCS World
• Added new Su-27 model.
• Added new Mission Editor trigger rule – Bomb in Zone.
• New mission editor skin. Incomplete work in progress.

• Combined Arms. AI units will resupply ammunition from a warehouse or cargo truck at ranges less than 100 meters, periodicity – once a minute. Player’s can do this with the LALT + ‘ key combination.
• Command Map control of air units. You can now route them, set speed and altitude, and set targets.
• Combined Arms. Ground units in group now stay in formation with user when in first person control mode. User can set formation and ROE when in 1st person mode.

• Combined Arms. Added min and max range rings for all indirect fire systems.
• Combined Arms. Added countdown timer for indirect fire missions.
• Combined Arms. Mission designer can now determine which ground units can and cannot be controlled by players (1st person and Command Map).
• Combined Arms. Platform Shake is better implemented and provides basic “weapon stabilization” option when the vehicle is on the move.
• Combined Arms. Added hot keys for hull / turret alignments, turret lock, and gun lock on azimuth.

Bug Fixes and Adjustments:

DCS World
• Tuned aircraft gun smoke.
• Fixed Set Path to Column formation.
• Fixed Georgian soldier animation.
• Fixed long range radar break-lock for Russian aircraft.
• AIM-120 and R-77 maximum load factor increased to 40g.
• R-77 data adjust. Thrust, lift and drag.
• AIM-120 data adjusted. Lift and drag.
• AIM-9M maximum load factor increased to 35g.
• AIM-9M thrust changed 12000 N.
• Adjusted AIM-9P drag.
• AIM-7M thrust and drug adjustments were made.
• Increased load factor to R-27 family to 24g.
• Increased R-27ER initial delay to 1.5 sec.
• AIM-54 data adjustment. Thrust, drug, lift, initial delay of guidance.
• R-33 data adjusted. Thrust, drug and lift, initial delay of guidance.
• R-60 data adjusted.
• R-73 data adjusted.
• Multi-channel missile guidance is fixed.
• Decreased the damage value of modern AA missiles warheads from directional to enhanced. Earlier AIM-120 and R-77 had a warheads with large multiplier factor termed “directional”. These missiles were very lethal, more so than even an S-300. It was not realistic and we decided replace “directional” warhead with the less power “enhanced” warhead.
• Number of simultaneously guided AIM-120s is 4 for F-15, F-16 and F-18.
• Number of simultaneously guided AIM-54 is 4 for F-14.

• Adjustments to the air combat maneuvering of all aircraft.
• “Transmit Message” command parameters indication is now in the action list
• Fixed infantry not moving when route is changed.
• Fixed client crash in MP.
• Fixed pilot models with K36 ejection seat.
• Debris of a killed soldier has been removed.
• Adjusted AWACS action time.

• Fixed Mission Editor that pressing File\Create in the drop menu did nothing.
• Aircraft will reset landing airdrome each time landing procedures is initiated.
• Changed color of missile flame and smoke from blue to yellow.

• Problem with random uncontrollable rotation of the tower in some circumstances has been resolved.
• Night vision staying switch to on after exit from the previous server has been fixed.
• Incoming missiles warning messages has been corrected.
• Helicopters will better maneuver against anti AAA when in the threat area.
