You can enable the icons in 3D space by going to Navigation->Navigation Visuals->Enable Facility Visuals->Icons and see if you can see your entities that way.

Other than that, are you sure your external entities are being created in Prepar3D?

For a sanity check if you don't see any other icons you can also crank up AI traffic by going to Options->General->Traffic and sliding the Aviation Traffic to 50% for each category. You should then see icons littering the map. You'll want to undo the AI after the test though so you don't confuse them for your DIS entities.

Are you using non-default Prepar3D vehicles (add-ons) for your DIS connection entities?

Yes

I am using non-default Prepar3d vehicles as my DIS Entities

The DIS entities are coming from a networked external application's mission

The DIS Entities from the networked mission are primarily Grounded Vehicles like Tanks
