Third Party - Campaign Developers
DCS World continues to offer new opportunities for our third-party campaign makers to produce world-class content. Please take a look at the joint letter below. It is written by all the campaign makers and gives you a good idea for what they are trying to achieve as a community. Great stuff!
“Dear virtual pilots,
This is a joint letter from all 3rd party campaign developers to the entire DCS World community. You know, we do not look at each other as competitors. We’re more like a virtual team of mission building enthusiasts. Although we work on our projects separately, we constantly help and support each other.
The most essential part of our success is you, the community. We’re forever grateful for the support and enthusiasm.”

Third-party campaign developer
Very soon you can expect the release of the Ka-50 Pandemic campaign for the Persian Gulf. Another campaign for the Mi-8 helicopter in Syria is in progress.
F/A-18C Rise of the Persian Lion campaign comprises 15 story-driven missions.
We are working on the release of A-10C Iron Flag campaign taking place in Nevada Test & Training Range.
We’re also working with “Rain” Waters, former F-16 demo pilot and host of the afterburn podcast on F-16C The Gamblers campaign, recreating his experience during deployment in Syria, 2014. Kevin Miller and ‘Jell-O’ Aiello from Fighter Pilot Podcast are preparing the next Raven One campaign, taking place in Syria.
There will also be goodies for the Harrier in the Ottoman Courier campaign.
A-10C Operation Persian Freedom campaign is in the making and will carry on the events of Persian Freedom into the Syrian theatre. This campaign will be for the Hornet and following 6 months of research and story writing aims to be an incredibly detailed scenario.
Ground Pounder Simulations
Our first project, Rising Squall, launched as the bridge between arcade and realism. We hope that Rising Squall will help to bring new players from other combat fighter genres. Experiencing the realistic flying characteristics of the jets while having a cinematic blast.
We are working on a tutorial campaign for DCS: F/A-18C. A series of detailed training missions that focuses on practicality and replayability, the idea is very similar to Laobi’s “1-minute DCS” series. It will be FREE for those who own Rising Squall.
A second campaign for the UH-1H on the Caucasus map will be released.
In 2021 we will also start work on a campaign for the SA-342 Gazelle. However, completion is planned for the end of 2022. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the helpers from the community.
We plan to release the A-10C II versions of our Basic Flight Training (BFT), Advanced Aircraft Training (AAT) and Tactical Training Qualification (TTQ) campaigns.
We also expect to complete the following: F-15C Basic Flight Training Qualification, F-15C Aggressors Air Combat Maneuvering, F-5E Aggressors Red Flag and FA-18C Aggressors Air Combat Maneuvering campaigns.
MAPLE FLAG MISSIONS
The F/A-18C Operation Pontus campaign in cooperation with Baltic Dragon offers a new story-driven concept.
Currently, we are working on an F-16C Campaign project, which we plan to finalise soon. The campaign takes place in Persian Gulf and is supported by extensive research of HAF/ NATO Operations. Later this year, we plan to finalise the sequel of UH-1H Argo campaign which will take part in Syria.

The community response from the F-14A Zone 5 campaign has been motivating.

A thirteen mission campaign for F/A-18C set in the Persian Gulf and featuring SuperCarrier. In the midst of a geopolitical scenario, each mission will test your ability to fly and fight in a true to life modern battlespace.

Part 2 of the Crew campaign. A series of campaigns for the Persian Gulf map are in development for the UH-1H Huey, Ka-50 Black Shark 2, Mi-24P Hind, and AH-64D Apache modules. The beginning of 2022 is exciting for helicopter enthusiasts in DCS World.
