Aircraft modules

The DCS aircraft modules can be separated into four main categories: full-sim jets, helicopters, and prop planes — all of which feature clicky cockpits and advanced systems simulation — and the Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft, which are simplified, hotkey-driven sims that have been grandfathered in and inherited from Eagle Dynamics' older Lock On: Modern Air Combat simulator.

The freebies

These come included with the free DCS World client

  • Su-25T “Frogfoot” — an FC3-style simplified simulation of the modernised (and never deployed) Frogfoot.
  • P-51D Mustang — a full simulation of the of a two-seater training variant of the P-51 Mustang

The jets

  • A-10C Warthog – the poster child DCS module, for all your BRRRRRT needs.
  • AJS-37 Viggen — a Swedish supersonic nap-of-the-earth anti-shipping jet? Gör't!
  • AV-8B NA Harrier — can't decide whether you want a plane or a helicopter? Why choose when you can just go VTOL?
  • C-101EB and CC Aviojet — Spanish airforce jet trainers and aerobatics aircraft (largely defunct)
  • F/A-18C Hornet — for all your carrier-based multi-role needs (very early access).
  • F-5E-3 Tiger II — a simple and lightweight daytime jet fighter and trainer.
  • F-86F Sabre — a venerable Korean-war era early jet fighter.
  • Hawk T.1A — RAF jet trainer and aerobatics aircraft (largely defunct)
  • L-39C and ZA Albatross — two-seater (and MP multicrew) Czech training aircraft.
  • Mirage M-2000C — ”La baguette”, a French supersonic lightweight multirole aircraft.
  • MiG-15bis – NATO designation “Fagot”, the main adversary of the F-86 Sabre.
  • MiG-21bis — NATO designation ”Fishbed”, the world's most common fighter jet, and after all, what's not to love about a supersonic maze of switches with nuclear capabilities?
