Continuing to play brings map experience which will help. It may take time with this game.

I highly recommend to always use your binoculars (default key on PC: "B"), these give you a zoomed in view while in your tank, using it often will make it become second nature and will greatly help spotting enemies.

We've worked on new c*ckpits for several aircraft, for example last year we did brand-new Spitfire c*ckpits: https://warthunder.com/en/news/8486-development-spitfire-c*ckpits-get-a-makeover-en In the current major update we also added fully-detailed AH-64 c*ckpits.

Fully-detailed c*ckpits take time a lot of time to do. We've said that bomber c*ckpits require 2-5 times more work than creating a new plane with just a single-seated c*ckpit. As of now I don't believe there's plans to implement updated bomber c*ckpits, at least for the majority of them.

Since you are here, I'm curious if there are any plans to make the bonus for researching all the modifications in one tier for tanks to go for helis when you have that option enabled

Because as I said, I have all the t...

The game has different HD textures that can be downloaded. It's likely on your PC you have the best ones selected.

You can turn it off by doing what Corinarh said, or launch the game launcher through Steam and selecting from the client dropdown Minimal or Full Client.

The last time was in 2014 and it was an old site post. We typically don't do Veterans Day or Remembrance Day events and that's the same with Anzac Day as well. Perhaps in time for next year I can discuss and see if we can do a small event or at least a recognition post for them.

Hi. The HE-VT ammunition was unhistorical and incorrect for the VEAK. We are working to correct its ammunition based on reports such as this one: https://community.gaijin.net/issues/p/warthunder/i/o0C4MWEJdVPF

Other reports show its shell (slsgr m/484) perhaps should not have had a VT fuse in the first place.

As well as the historical aspect, Sweden also did not have a suitable SPAA for 7.7/8.0 lineups and with the removal of its incorrect shell and a change of BR, it suits the new position ideally.

We do update the graphics and effects in most major updates, for example we've recently improved explosion ad fire effects. Graphics updates do come over time, however keep in mind is that War Thunder is free to play and want to keep it as accessible to as many people as possible regardless of what their PC specifications are.

Hi, if you believe it's intentional by a teammate then please report them in-game. You can right click on their name, click complain and then select teamkiller as the complaint category.
