New vehicles in the update may have inaccuracies in characteristics, armour and weaponry settings.

The armour model for new ground vehicles in the update is “work in progress” for adjustment and improvement.

Some new aircraft lack c*ckpits.

Some ground vehicles lack a visible crew.

For some aircraft, the detachment of the wing panels may not be displayed correctly.

Missing icons for some vehicles.

There may be a lack of localization of some equipment.

No sound played in some events.

Some aircraft may have inaccuracies in the Damage Model, missing fuel, oil and water leaks, armour materials

The circling function in a ship's seaplane has an icon from a UAV.

USS Nevada — There is no modification for the reconnaissance aircraft.

We are looking at what solutions can be found for this. The main issue is the skin not being created by us. But we have it in mind.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Currently no need to make a bug report. The devs are aware.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

No news currently.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Currently there's no update on this. The report itself would be updated if so.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

The 2E is in its correct positon in the Challenger line. There are no plans to change that.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Not the Challenger 2E, thats for sure. But we do have some broader considerations for the future of that line in later major updates. However there is no news to share right now.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Japan is receiving the F-16AJ because there is currently no other option to add for them as a 4th generation fighter. The other options are too advanced for what is currently in game. The vehicle is only being added because of this exception, and it is not an indication that all other proposals / projects for other nations will be introduced.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

There are no jets Japan used with capabilities fitting of the current generation of jets. The options that remain are planned, but much later and are too far advanced currently. Right now there are no plans to hide it, as the aircraft has not even been introduced yet.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

The F-4F was lowered to 10.7 and no longer sees the top 12.0 jets. Currently it's doing fine at it's new BR with no need for AIM-9L.

Similarly the F-4E/J and British Phantoms suit their current BRs with their current loadouts, as most other aircraft at the same BRs have similar such weponary. We don't plan to include AIM-9Ls in their loadouts this patch, as all of those nations now will have jets with those missiles in their tree. (Germany gets the MIG-29 this patch). But as always, the Devs will continue to monitor their situation.

Currently it's also not planned to upgrade and therefore uptier the F-4E with guided munitions of that nature this patch.

Not planned. The Challenger 2E is in its correct line (the Challenger one).

3 months ago - gromvoiny - Direct link

Yes it is. And it's not Rank IV material obviously.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Please feel free to submit a historical report here with your info (or on the community bug report site) and we can pass it on for the Devs to review:


3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Thank you for the report link. This was not included in the original post, therefore we cannot check the status of the report. I recommend a historical report, as more often than not, when people claim an issue was "reported' but don't provide a report link, it turns out the issue hasn't been, but it was simply raised in a discussion topic.

As such, if you are asking for a status request or update on a report. Please include the link like you have done here.

With regards to the reports. Both are treated as suggestions. There are no changes to them as far as I can see in this major update.

3 months ago - gromvoiny - Direct link

We're still far away from the rest of the research tree so this question is preliminary.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link

Hey. I'm currently away at the moment. However yes we do plan to look into drop tanks for the other variants in future updates.

3 months ago - Smin1080p - Direct link


A solution was indeed found by the devs to resolve the issue. We are progressively working through further 3D model reworks over time, but the presence of a market skin wont be a hinderance (at least as far as can be seen at the moment) in any case

So that wont stop reworks.

I would love to see the Blenheim some day. But then I'm a tad bias as I live about 45 minutes from the world's only flying Blenheim
