HMS Mohawk, a Tribal-class destroyer, comes as one of the prizes of the “Export order” craft event!

In our game, the destroyer Mohawk will become a premium British ship at rank II in the bluewater fleet tech tree, and you will be able to get her by participating in the upcoming Export Order game event. War Thunder fleet commanders are already familiar with the Tribal-class destroyers from the very able destroyer Eskimo. The main advantage of the entire class is the multiple main calibre, which on the Mohawk is represented by eight 120mm guns in four gun mounts. Tribal destroyers feature a fairly large ammunition capacity for the main guns, consisting of semi-armour-piercing and several types of high-explosive fragmentation shells, including those with a remote fuse. At the same time, the main guns have a go... Read more

Returning fragments with penetration
They could indeed disappear if a volumetric shell pierced the intersection of three or four armour parts. The problem occurred rather rarely but has nevertheless been fixed. Good luck hitting your targets!

A new premium strike aircraft in the Soviet lineup, featuring devastating guns and a heavy bomb load. The perfect addition for mixed and naval battles at mid tiers!

In our game, the Tu-1 is a premium strike aircraft at rank IV of the USSR aviation. This aircraft complements the line of cannon strike aircraft, and in many ways resemble the excellent premium TIS-MA fighter. Heavy forward-facing armament consisting of a pair of 45-mm and a pair of 23-mm cannons makes it unsurpassed in the destruction of low-flying bombers and attack aircraft in air battles. Ammo belts for hitting armored targets easily crack armored vehicles - including heavy tanks and self-propelled guns when shot into the side or roof. Tu-1 is equipped with a radar, which is quite exotic for mid-rank Soviet aviation. The radar makes it easier to detect... Read more

The iconic Boeing B-17 bombers will receive an updated exterior in the upcoming Direct Hit update!
Dear Pilots! We continue to work on improving the external models of War Thunder’s vehicles. In the next big update, Direct Hit, we will introduce a new look for true veterans of the game - the Boeing B-17 series heavy bombers!

American B-17 bombers, nicknamed "Flying Fortresses" for their devastating defensive armament, appeared in the War Thunder many years ago during the closed beta testing. Since then, a lot of work has been done to the flight model and armament of these aircraft, but the appearance of the American giants is clearly outdated.

The C13 is an IFV developed by OTO Melara with the aim of producing a replacement to the outdated M113 APC in service with Italian forces at the time. Soon, tankers in War Thunder will get the chance to command yet another excellent light vehicle arriving to the higher ranks of Italian ground forces tree as part of the next major update!

In War Thunder, the C13 T90 will be a new light tank arriving to rank IV of the Italian ground forces tree as part of the next major update “Direct hit” coming to the game. Its devastating 90 mm cannon, impressive mobility yet rather light armor make the C13 T90 a typical representative of the IFV class of vehicles and thus a likely new favorite among seasoned Italian tankers. Let’s give the newcomer a closer look, shall we?

The BV 138 is a German WWII flying boat, developed in the late 1930s as a replacement to the outdated Dornier Do 18. Being one of the most widely used German flying boats of the war, pilots will now finally have the chance to take control over this unique aircraft as it arrives to War Thunder as part of the major update "Direct Hit"!

In War Thunder, the BV 138 C-1 will be a new flying boat arriving to the lower ranks of the German aviation tree with the release of the next major update. Further expanding the German seaplane lineup in the game, the BV 138 may not necessarily impress pilots with its flight characteristics or payload capacity, but its relatively small size and formidable defensive armament may make it ideally suited for capturing and defending strategic points in naval battles!

We are working on the upcoming major update “Direct Hit” and next start of the Open DEV server which will take place on the 1st of September. That’s why there are not many fixes this time, but it is still important for many players.

Fixing the opaque sight
The glass of the gunsight in the c*ckpit of your aircraft could become opaque if you disable the sight function (yes, you can do that). The problem affected quite a lot of vehicles: AV-8A, AV-8C, Harrier GR.1, Harrier GR.3, F-4E Phantom II, F-4EJ Phantom II, F-4F Early, F-4F, Phantom FG.1, Phantom FGR.2, Su-17M2, Jaguar A, Jaguar GR.1, F-5E, A-7D.

USS Pittsburgh is an American heavy cruiser of the Baltimore-class which entered service with the U.S. Navy in the final years of WWII. Inheriting the class’ signature combination of firepower, protection and mobility, USS Pittsburgh is arriving to War Thunder naval forces as the new top American cruiser with the next major update!

In War Thunder, USS Pittsburgh will be a new heavy cruiser arriving to the top ranks of the American naval tree with the release of the next major update “Direct hit”. Coming to the game in its 1953 Cold War refit, USS Pittsburgh promises its captains a considerable upgrade to heavy anti-air firepower over previous vessels and as such will also rightfully take the place of the new top American cruiser at rank V!
