Explore a Vast and Detailed World

DCS: Kola covers a large area from the majestic mountains of Murmansk Oblast down southwards through Karelia Republic into Finnish Lakeland before extending westwardly along Norwegian coastline almost up until you reach Tromso city or North Cape area itself – all this is done without losing any immersion at each point in time.

We can fly over snow-capped peaks; sail along complex fjords system dotted by thousands islands; look towards open Barents Sea where only horizon limits our view while sitting inside cosy cockpit.

DCS Early Access

The latest DCS early access version is mostly about a carefully designed subregion that includes central Finland and western parts of Russia’s Murmansk and Karelia regions. This area has a lot of very detailed places that are based around working airbases in both Finland and Russia, as well as the cities and countryside that surround them.

The original focus area is a big place to explore, but DCS: Kola’s real potential lies in how it will grow in the future. The Orbx team is committed to increasing the size of the map all the time by adding more accurate airports, cities, towns, and infrastructure across the whole area. This dedication guarantees that players will always have a better and more interesting experience.
