  • The sounds of ATGMs and unguided rockets flying past the player have been adjusted so that they sound less like jet aircraft flying over, and also sound more distinctive.
  • Squares A1-A2 and partially B1-B2 have been excluded from the available play area on the [Domination #1]Mozdok mission to avoid spawn trap kills on the northern spawn point.
  • The available play area in all missions on the Sinai location have been shifted to the left to exclude the hills, which allowed for control of most of the location and spawn points.
  • All AB missions on the Sinai location now have spawn points located similar to RB/SB missions.
  • J-9 — artifacts have been removed from the c*ckpit view.
  • SMS Sachsen — camo mapping has been fixed.

We’ve seen a lot of topics regarding the armor of the Abrams series of tanks, more specifically the presence of DU (depleted uranium) armor, and so we’d like to share our data on the subject.
Most sources on radiation safety clarify that the only threat to personnel is posed from armor packages in the cheeks of the turret. The M1A2 Abrams in War Thunder has uranium armor in the turret cheeks.

Hello everyone. We’ve noticed that many of you had questions regarding spall liners on tanks and armor in general. To avoid any misunderstandings, we’d like to briefly answer some of these elements below.

The effectiveness of the M1 Abrams
We’ll soon be releasing a dev blog on the hull armor for the M1 Abrams series of tanks, where we’ll explain why we believe that hull armor was not reinforced on production vehicles. However, we’re not satisfied with the current effectiveness of all M1 variants with a 120 mm gun, so we’re looking at other ways to improve them.

The first consideration is the addition of a new M829A3 shell which we’ve also seen requests and suggestions for. We’ve discussed this option, but the addition of this shell in comp... Read more

In War Thunder, we try to add as much details as possible to various types of combat vehicles. Spall liner is a new armored vehicle protection feature that we introduced in the Air Superiority update, which we know is widely discussed on all platforms. We’d like to explain in detail how this mechanic works, and what its capabilities and limitations are.

In the near future, we’ll be making an additional post addressing your concerns with spall liners for MBTs in general.

First up, let’s take a look at what spall liner is in reality. Spall liner is part of the structural protection of an armored combat vehicle, designed to reduce the damaging effect in the main compartment once a tank is penetrated. To do this, liners are attached inside of the main compartment. Material such as fabrics made from aramid fiber are most often used, but other m... Read more

Today we’re going to be talking about and showcasing two brand-new Premium Battleships that have been added to the Air Superiority major update — the French Courbet and the Italian Leonardo da Vinci.

Meet the Courbet!
Vehicle History

The Battleship Courbet became the lead ship in a series of the first French Battleships that were built shortly before the outbreak of the First World War. Courbet saw action in two World Wars, but was grounded during the Allied landings in Normandy and used as a breakwater and stationary air defense battery. This ship is the sistership of one of the best French ships already in War Thunder, Battleship Paris.



Courbet is ambiguous but that makes this ship an even more interesting dreadnought! F... Read more

Hey everyone. Some of you have noticed that the amount of fragments after penetrating tank armor has lowered after the release of the Air Superiority major update, even if a spall liner isn’t present. We’re aware of this problem and are working on a solution as a matter of priority. Thank you for your feedback here.
