Eagle Dynamics has released a new update 1 for Open Beta DCS World 2.5.
Highlights include the integration of new L-39 Kursant campaign along with several bug fixes and improvements.
You can see the full changelog in the DCS forum.
L-39 Kursant Campaign is available
The L-39 Kursant Campaign is a single-player campaign for the L-39C/ZA aircraft. You will receive both basic and advanced instruction on:
• Low altitude navigation
• Aerial reconnaissance using real-life tactics
• Detailed instruction for bomb, rocket, and gun weapon delivery against ground targets, preceded by realistic ingress maneuvers
• Interception of aerial targets with R-60 air-to-air missiles.
All flights are performed under the supervision of a virtual-instructor. After each flight, he will decide whether or not you progress to the next mission based on your performance. At the conclusion of the training course, an evaluation flight will be performed to determine how well you have learned the skills of L-39 navigation and combat employment.
Main features of this campaign:
• 11 realistic missions that are based on actual L-39 training requirements
• Missions start and end on the parking ramp, which creates an immersive atmosphere of being a “kursant” (cadet) at a training squadron
• Briefings, flight plans, and virtual instructor help you complete this training course

Persian Gulf Map for DCS World Update
In addition to fixing a few remaining bugs and further tuning the map, the map team is already at work expanding the low-detail around the map and adding two new Iranian airfields. These two airfields, Kerman and Shiraz, or inland from the Persian Gulf and will add some great gameplay options for both new campaigns and online play. These will significantly expand the range between bases in the UAE/Oman and Iran.
Both of these additions will come after the release of the Early Access version. Purchase now though at the discount price before the early access period ends at the end of this month.
