The Eagle Dynamics team has announced the Aermacchi MB-339A by IndiaFoxEcho as an addition to the DCS aircraft lineup.
The MB-339 jet trainer and light ground support aircraft entered service in the early 1980s with the primary user being the Italian Air Force.
It also took part in the Falklands-Malvinas war with the Armada de la República Argentina (Argentina Navy) and was used by the Eritrean Air Force in various roles against rebels, smugglers and even against the Ethiopian Air Force.
Today the MB-339 is also used by “Al Fursan” (The Knights), UAE’s national aerobatic team and by the “Frecce Tricolori” Italian national aerobatic team. The MB-339 is the only jet aircraft capable of performing the famous Lomcovák manoeuvre.
The MB-339 for DCS aims to be the most realistic simulation of this aircraft ever made for PC, not only in terms of system functionality and performance but especially flight model. Currently, the aircraft is in internal testing and is continuously being improved as new features are being added.
