DCS World Update
 
 Our current focus is on the merger of DCS World 1.5 with DCS World 2.0. This version, termed DCS world 2.5, will return us to a unified DCS version with the new graphics engine and be capable of supporting multiple maps. In addition to these features, we also plan to include an improved Caucasus map, new and improved explosions and clouds, improved network code, and the new procedural grass and ground clutter.
 
 In parallel with DCS World 2.5, we continue to make progress on the DCS: Strait of Hormuz map, DCS: Normandy map, DCS: F/A-18C Hornet, DCS: Spitfire IX, the option to add a Garmin GNS 430 navigation device that can be installed on various aircraft, continued improvements to Combined Arms, new additions to the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range map, new campaigns, Kuznetsov and Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft updates, new effects, and other efforts mentioned in previous newsletters.
 
 With both the consumer Rift and Vive Virtual Reality (VR) systems on the near horizon, we are also improving the DCS VR experience which includes better cockpit interaction, user interface, and performance.

That would be cool. Pricey though.

How would that work with your keyboard? Would you be able to see the keyboard with the Rift on?

And don't you have some touch screens set up. Would you even be able to see those?

You wouldn't need a keyboard for anything. The cockpit is clickable (most are). You would use https://www.leapmotion.com/ with https://www.oculus.com/en-us/rift/

You wouldn't need any monitors really. Only one to start the game. I would sell my second PC and all 6 touchscreens and almost have enough to get a Version 2 rift. The Customer version 1 rift is much better but a big chunk of change. This would also let me take my stick, laptop or PC, and Rift/Leapmotion to Tailhook. Completely mobile.

Too expensive/risky without proof of concept first.  Couple hours in a vr headset might make the worst headache you ever had...I would have to try it for myself before making that kind of investment.
People first.  Integrity always.

Two weeks should allow you enough time to drop sail, Hard Anchor, dinghy a shore and jump back into a plane and twist a turbine..
