The highly anticipated VTOL VR 1.8 update, alongside the EF-24G Mischief DLC, has been released, bringing a significant overhaul to the game’s electronic warfare capabilities. This update is now available on Steam for enthusiasts of the combat flight simulator.
The 1.8 update introduces a substantial change in how radar, GPS, and other targeting data are managed, enabling various forms of jamming to be possible within the game. This change is designed to enhance the realism and tactical depth of electronic warfare within VTOL VR.
EF-24G Mischief DLC
The EF-24G Mischief DLC adds a new aircraft that is specially designed to exploit the updated electronic warfare systems. This aircraft, along with the existing T-55, F/A-26B, and F-45A, gains new pods that allow them to perform jamming operations. The EF-24G is a two-seat, twin-engine, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft equipped with specialized sensors and advanced multi-mode ECM pods, making it a formidable tool for disrupting enemy communications and radar.
The DLC supports multiple languages, including English, Chinese (Simplified), Russian, and Japanese, with varying levels of audio and subtitle translation.
The update includes numerous specific changes and fixes:
Radar lock data now only shows the locked vehicle’s name and altitude in thousands if the altitude unit is set to feet.
The ability to designate and fire targets in TWS mode has been added.
Various fixes to pilot body proportions, RWR icons, and control surfaces.
New electronic warfare mechanics such as radar, GPS, and communications jamming have been introduced.
Radar-guided missiles and anti-radiation missiles can now be fired in Home-on-Jam (HOJ) mode.
The RWR’s directional and range precision has been greatly reduced.
GPS weapons now require time to establish a GPS signal after launch, with INS being used in the meantime.
Multiplayer, mission editor, and equipment updates have also been included.
