DUXFORD, UK, October 15, 2007 – The Fighter Collection and the Eagle Dynamics development studio will release the new benchmark in PC air combat simulation in 2008 with the release of “Digital Combat Simulator: Black Shark”. “DCS: Black Shark” is a simulation of the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter and will be the flagship title of the new “DCS” series. Following the success of the “Flanker” series and “Lock On: Modern Air Combat”, TFC/Eagle Dynamic’s “DCS” will shift the focus to introducing one aircraft at a time at an incredible level of detail that is unmatched by any PC flight simulation. Following the Ka-50 “Black Shark”, TFC/Eagle Dynamics will introduce additional aircraft modules to the “DCS” world like the A-10A “Warthog”, AH-64A “Apache”, and other aircraft at the same exacting level of detail.
Each of these aircraft will be available in retail and online and can be purchased as stand-alone simulations or integrated with other modules. It will also be possible to purchase each aircraft as an add-on at a reduced price for consumers that have already purchased a “DCS” module.
Features of the “DCS” include:
The first aircraft to be included in the “DCS” world will be the Ka-50 attack helicopter. The Ka-50, like later “DCS” add-on aircraft, will feature:
Internally developed by The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics, “DCS: Black Shark” is scheduled to ship for Windows PC in 2008. Further information can be found at http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/
