In a world without hope, without law, without mercy, only one thing has a price: resources!
Even after the world gradually turned into a lifeless hot desert, the war did not stop. The ruins of one of the last bastions of a united humanity have now become the battlefield of countless bands of raiders who roam these forgotten lands in search of valuable resources. A cult of rage drives these ruthless warriors of the desert. Their combat vehicles, assembled from parts of military equipment of the past, are decorated with special flags where raiders mark their victories. Rumors of the best warriors spreads quickly, and the hunters themselves often become the prey of those who dream of glory of the chosen one of the sacred rage.

So start your engines and fill up your machine gun belts... oh what a beautiful day... what... Read more

  • Information about the lack of tracers in an aircraft belt has been added to the tooltip in the modification window.
  • A message about the need to select a weapon to be able to change its belts has also been added to the tooltip.
The current provided changelog reflects the major changes within the game as part of this Update. Some updates, additions and fixes may not be listed in the provided notes. War Thunder is constantly improving and specific fixes may be implemented without the client being updated.

In our game, we strive to reproduce all of the features of weapons and military vehicles that gives players a new and interesting experience. The more modern technology that comes under a player’s control, the more systems require mastering to effectively use this technology. Guided missiles, radar and other sensors require some knowledge that is not always available through the game. In order to solve this problem, we’ve decided to add the ability to see the operation of sensors and missile weapons using a new sensor vision system.

This system visualizes the operation of the radar, other sensors and various weapons and presents it to the player in a clear and understandable form. At the first stage of integrating this system into the game, it’ll be available to players in client and server replays. A new button will be added to the top of the replay contr... Read more

Initially, firing tests of the turret were conducted on a Flakpanzer IV ‘Möbelwagen’ chassis. In December however, tw... Read more
