In 1909, the United States Military purchased its first aircraft. Through WWI and WWII, the importance of controlling airspace on the battlefield had grown significantly being used in every aspect of war and peacetime use. In 1947, the need for a formalized branch of service to be established to further the development and deployment of America’s Air Forces was seen as vital to modernization and organization efforts. Today we salute the USAF on their 74th Birthday! The USAF today continues to meet the highest standards possible, producing many of the finest pilots the world has ever seen.







Until 07:00 GMT on the 20th of September, play 3 battles with an in-game activity of 70% or higher in random battles while flying US aircraft of rank I...

Improvements

A warning message when the BR of the squad player’s vehicles differs from the BR of the squad leader’s vehicles has been added when queuing.


Display of the actual BR of a player’s vehicles or squad’s vehicles in the queue window has been improved. The numbers are now more visible.


Display of an aircraft’s contacts has been improved and the distance of their appearance has been increased. This simplifies visual search and detection of the aircraft at medium and long range as well as against the surface background.



Fixes

Incorrect fuel load when entering a battle in an aircraft has been fixed for some cases where the change of the fuel amount and the appearance of the aircraft didn’t match the selection in the respawn window (report, report 2, report 3).

Dear friends! Starting from the next release, Thunder Show is changing format — now we want your replays, not your clips.





For us, it is an opportunity to make beautiful footage of your battle from different angles and at maximum resolution. It is also easier for you, as you have to send one little file and have no need to work hard on a video.











So, what do you do if something incredible happens in your battle that deserves to appear in Thunder Show?



While in the game, go to “Community > Replays” and find the replay.


Press the “Rename” button and give it a memorable name.


Open the Replays folder in the game folder: search for the file with the name you hav...

Inverted border and fill colors on the player nicknames have been fixed on the lighting scheme of player nameplates.


A bug has been fixed where in some cases autocannon fire might cause the damage indicator to appear on a player’s own aircraft.


A bug has been fixed that made aircraft contacts at distances between 2.8 and 4.6 km blurred and almost invisible in the air .


User created rooms have been removed from the air SB room list. Now they are divided by nation presets, together with matchmaker created rooms.


In the air SB room list, a new checkbox has been added - “Show supported only”, which allows the hiding of all rooms unavailable for the selected aircraft and gaming nation, including those for all squad mates.


A bug that caused the progress bar for some tasks to be displayed incorrectly has been fixed.

One of the most unusual main battle tanks of the Swedish research tree is back on sale, in game right now for Golden Eagles!





Following the major redesign of the hull guidance mechanics, both the Swedish Strv line and the German VT1-2 are ready to show their best sides, and with the premium Strv 103-0 prototype, you will also receive many more Research Points and Silver Lions.




With a total of three crew members, survivability after taking hits from an enemy can be slim. However, the Strv 103 series are the only tanks that can operate with only a single crew member! Its frontal armour sports an impressive angle of inclination, it’s extremely low in terms of overall size, and it bears decent protection for its crew. It also has a high rate of fire. All of these features were included in the vehicle’s first prototype - surely you can agree, this tank is quite...

The German Me 262 Schwalbe is an iconic fighter aircraft, known far and wide for its effectiveness in air battles… but there was also the Arado 234 Blitz — an excellent jet bomber that is often forgotten in the shadow of the more popular fighter. That’s hardly fair though as the Blitz is often considered one of the most sophisticated aircraft designs of its time.

In this digest we would like to tell you about our continuing work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder on the website special section.





This time we are going to talk about some of the particularly interesting improvements in War Thunder that came out with the “Direct Hit” update!


Great work on sounds


With each update War Thunder sounds better and better. “Direct Hit” was no exception if your feedback from Open-DEV was to be believed.


This time we worked with the sounds of the engines so they not only sounded realistic but also changed the character of the sounds depending on the load. You can hear the result in the game! Engine roar and its speed will be noticeably different when driving on rutted tracks or when climbing a steep hill.
