DCS: A-10C Warthog BFT Campaign and 1.5.3 Update 2

DCS-A-10C-BFT-Campaign-Update-1.5.3-WarthogEagle Dynamics has released the newest DCS update along with a robust Basic Flight Training Campaign for the A-10C Warthog. The campaign boasts over 2,300 lines of voiced dialogue and has 170+ pages of briefing material (A-10C checklist, maps, data cards, etc) to soak up in your spare time.

Everything from your flight plan and start-up to handling emergencies will be covered in the newest Basic Flight Training update. The mission itself has 12 performance rides and you’ll be judged based on some of the Warthog’s actual qualification requirements:

  • General knowledge, airmanship, and safety.
  • Pre-takeoff and takeoff.
  • Navigation and maneuvers.
  • Approach and landing.
  • Communications and task prioritization.

While this BFT campaign may not be as complex or satisfying for A-10C veteran pilots, it will definitely give newer pilots (or players wanting to learn more about the A-10C) a more in depth look at the Warthog’s features and handling.

This newest campaign addition is supported by the next DCS iteration – version 1.5.3 Update 2. This update is mostly a house keeping download, but the save game fix is much appreciated, as are the tweaks to the C-101EB:
