Supercarrier Development Progress
Eagle Dynamics is currently working on the additional animation to vary operations phases onboard DCS: Supercarrier. A new skeleton that better matches human anatomy is in progress; this will improve realistic deck crew movement.
The company is also working on improving the catapult launch animation for the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet pilot. The hand models have been corrected whilst we continue to develop Nomex® flight gloves. They are also using highly detailed 3D scanning technology to better model the pilot point-of-view experience. When complete, the CWU-27 / p Flight Suit and the CSU-13 / p Anti-G Suit will be available.
