Welcome to the WW2 ACE Pilot’s Lounge
H.C.B.C Recommended software’s for WW2 pilot’s
Best software’s to interface is DCS if you plan build a full size cockpit for a fighter from ww2 , but make sure there is a flight model ( not AI ) for the type you like build first. As this software is a bit new and flight models are complex there is not so many made. There is also software such as IL-2 Sturmovik but not so many options to interface. Prepar3D
made by Lockheed Martin is a better option for you then ” it also have a lot of flight models ”

DCS: Normandy 1944 adds 93,000 square kilometers of Europe to fight over
The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map is centered on the World War II battlefield of Normandy, France and is specifically created to depict the period after the D-Day landings and the establishment of several allied airfields in Normandy to support the beachhead breakout in late June 1944. The map measures 267 x 348 kilometers and includes airfields in both Normandy and southern England. The map includes the famous D-Day landing beaches and the “Atlantic Wall”, rolling bocage fields of Normandy, large cities like Caen and Rouen, ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre, and 30 airfields. The map also includes multiple seasons and more detail and accuracy than any previous DCS World map by utilizing new map technologies.
In addition to being developed to support DCS: World War II modules, other module eras from the Korean War to Modern Day may also be used with this map.
A good rule is to update your screen card driver and keep your software updated.
Deactivate all Power savings in Windows for your USB ports, as this can result in some of your modules or controls go to sleep in the middle of a battle.

Spitfire in DCS
The British Spitfire is one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of World War II.
