Dedicated Server

The 51st Virtual Fighting Wing hosts its own dedicated server which is modified for the most realistic experience that DCS World has to offer. We have spent countless hours making an enjoyable environment for our wing which offers a dynamic range of options for each platform.

In order to access our server, you must be at least an accepted cadet in our wing, as well as run a number of modifications that our server requires including a voice-over IP system used in DCS called SRS.  Our server is currently running the DCS Open Beta version. The server IP and password will be provided to you through discord.

All links to these files and instructions to install them are listed below.
