DCS World

Digital Combat Simulator World (DCS World) is a free-to-play digital battlefield game, focusing on simulation of military aircraft. It is developed by Eagle Dynamics, a Russian company  based in Moscow and founded by  Igor Tishin in 1991. ED started more than 20 years ago with groundbreaking simulators on PC like SU-27 Flanker in 1995, Lock-on Modern Air Combat in 2003 and Lock On add on Flaming Cliffs 3 featuring the Su-25T with never seen before accuracy. 

In 2008, the first reference of Digital Combat Simulator came up with the standalone helicopter simulator Ka-50 Black Shark, followed by a second standalone simulator Fairchild A10C Warthog in 2011. DCS World then became a universal free-to-play platform with aircraft modules, maps and DLC campaigns that one can purchase to enrich the basic game. It is opened to third parties developers (under strict control of ED), increasing the number of available quality aircraft modules, while keeping the spirit of hardcore simulation that defines this company.

DCS World features a large area of the Caucasus region that encompasses much of Georgia – the location of the Russo-Georgian war in 2008, as well as the Nevada Test and Training Range as of the DCS World 2 that came out early 2016 as an alpha version with an improved graphic engine. Additionally, DCS World includes: mission and campaign editors, online multiplayer, large inventory of air, land and sea combat units and weapons, AI player opponents, mission generator, dynamic weather and seasons, training missions, mission replay system and pilot log book. This all allows the creation of real-world combat missions.
