DCS: Normandy

Recommended Posts

In a perverse way, that terrain looks like it would be fun to fly 50m supersonic in the Viggen.  I'll eventually get the Normandy terrain, but I look forward to its release primarily because that will shift resources to getting DCS 2.5 out the door.

Normandy info and WW2 Assets Pack (Free to WW2 Kickstarter Normandy map owners)

The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and DCS: World War II Assets Pack will be available for download by late April 2017.

More details coming this weekend in the Newsletter!

The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map is centred on the World War II battlefield of Normandy, France and is specifically created to depict the period after the D-Day landings and the establishment of several allied airfields in Normandy to support the beachhead breakout in late June 1944. The map measures 267 x 348 kilometres and includes airfields in both Normandy and southern England. The map includes the famous D-Day landing beaches and the “Atlantic Wall”, rolling bocage fields of Normandy, large cities like Caen and Rouen, ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre, and 30 airfields. The map also includes multiple seasons and more detail and accuracy than any previous DCS World map by utilizing new map technologies.
A vital aspect of creating an authentic World War II battlefield is to populate it with matching artificial intelligence (AI) World War II assets. The DCS: World War II Assets Pack provides numerous World War II air, land and sea assets to populate the Normandy and other DCS World maps with.
