Another outstanding work from Glowing Amraam featuring DCS Mustang.
Another busy month for the DCS/FC multiplayer scene even though most of the action happened on the 104th, 4c and 51st public servers.
We are yet to see more Tactical Missions planned. The only planned TMC until now comes from the 104th VFS as they host the 1st 2012 sequel of the very popular OPFOR event.
Unfortunately, Team Combat League (TCL), the only OCL (Ongoing Competition Ladder) based provider has suspended its services due to lack of activity.
Competition between fighter pilots is fierce, <<ThunderJet>> is still reigning over the Air to Air Rankings with a very solid set of results on the 104th dedicated server.
104th_Maverick, runner-up for the 3rd consecutive month is closing in and the gap at the moment is less than 200 points. OPFOR 12-1 event would be very decisive for the air-to-air top position battle even though Maverick has plenty of points to defend in the upcoming months (Drop Date effect).
Wodan is not far behind and gets the advantage of not having much to defend for the few upcoming months.
Zoky and Vecko from VAO made a good deal on the 51st dedicated server and earned valuable points and are both featuring on the top 10 list.
array takes the slot of the hottest new comer with a 42nd place recorded straight away on first SA Rankings appearance.
On the Bomber section, =4c=SandmaN is sitting at the top of the Air to Surface Rankings with a comfortable margin over the runner up Brodiaga from the Russian Air Force.
Overall, there are still plenty of points to grab once more types of event come into play. We are yet to see events like knock-out Tournaments (STT), Leagues(STL) being organized. Of course more TMC’s (Tactical Mission/Campaign) are needed as every pilot can have as much as 7 countable best scores, just like OPS’s (Official Public Server). Here is a quick recap about how many results are countable per type of event for every pilot:
- Official Public Server (OPS) : Best 7 scores during last 12 months
- Tactical Mission Campaign (TMC) : Best 7 scores during last 12 months
- Ongoing Competition Ladder (OCL) : Best 2 scores during last 12 months
- Short Term Tournament (STT) : Best 2 scores during last 12 months
- Short Term League (STL) : Best score during last 12 months
- Air Show / Air Race (ASAR) : Best score during last 12 months

Virtual European Air Operations is pleased to announce our development strategy for DCS. First, a little about VEAO (yes I know, you want me to cut to the chase).
We have been around since 2005 developing models for FC1.12a and FC2, specifically the BAE Hawk and Eurofighter Typhoon.
The Hawk has been used by the Virtual Red Arrows aerobatic display team since then and has had a few updated versions through FC1 and Flaming Cliffs 2 into the incarnation that we currently use today and more recently featured on our latest video showing the 3d cockpit.Continue reading

Okay, we’ve had the green light from TFC to let you all know the products we have planned from the IRIS team over the next 3 year development cycle.
(I hope they won’t take that long to make! lol)
Contracts have been signed for the following products;
IRIS F-15E Strike Eagle for DCS World
IRIS F-22 Raptor for DCS World
IRIS F-14D Tomcat for DCS World
I will say that the F-15E is being developed with the intention of being submitted to ED as a DCS branded product (ie. DCS: F-15E Strike Eagle) and of course will be one of the longest to develop.
