DCS: Black Shark offers an innovative combat simulation experience that is sure to challenge the hard-core flight enthusiast. There is also an easy-to-play arcade mode that can be enjoyed by any beginner. Employing military-qualified technology, it’s an unprecedented level of realism, flight dynamics, instruments modelling, avionics systems, and weapons systems like you’ve never seen before.
A detailed 125,000 sq mi depiction of the European / Asian border region serves as your battlefield and includes a broad array of eastern and western air, land and sea units. Each unit is accurately reproduced to include detailed models, weapons systems, movement dynamics and artificial intelligence. Add to this a state-of-the art campaign system which allows the front line of the battlefield to move back and forth according to your mission success or failure. Each bullet, rocket, shell or bomb fired is modelled in the most precise detail for an unimaginably visceral gaming experience.
The new Mission Editor includes a powerful electronic mapping system that allows you to easily create missions and campaigns, and nonlinear campaigns are also included for unlimited replay ability. Multiplayer mode supports up to 16 players and includes both cooperative play using the Ka-50 data link and head-to-head combat. With intense missions, authentic flight modelling and versatile gaming options, DCS: Black Shark offers the most realistic flight simulation experience ever.
DCS: Black Shark" is a PC game of the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter and is a realistic simulation experience that offers an unprecedented level of realism in regards to flight dynamics, instruments modeling, avionics systems, and weapon systems.The artificial Intelligence of ground vehicles and helicopters is dynamic. A new Mission Editor includes a powerful electronic mapping system that allows user to easily create missions and campaign while a new campaign system allows the front line of the battlefield to move back and fourth according to your mission success or failure. The Ka-50 Black Sharks rotor model is revolutionary among helicopter simulators. It is based on a joint model of each blade with its own complex motion relative to rotor axis and flapping (horizontal) and hunting (vertical) hinges. All this produces natural helicopter dynamics such as conical rotor inclination in forward flight (oscillations in hover with fixed stick, cyclic stick input increasing accordingly to the airspeed), power excess after transition from hover to forward flight, ground effect (over inclined surface or close to ground objects), vortex ring phenomena, airflow stall from the blades, blades intersection (collision). In the case of individual blade damage, corresponding dynamics are naturally modeled as part of overall rotor model.For the first time in flight simulation history, the engine model is based on detailed physics model of turbo-shaft engine as a system of separate components of the engine gas-dynamics system: engine inlet, compressor, combustion chamber, high-pressure turbine and power-turbine with engine exhaust. Programming, editing and saving of waypoints, runways, radio beacons, target locations and the ability to study terrain along the flight route, etc.
