War Thunder background
Server update 13.08.2020

Ground Vehicle model, damage model, characteristic and weaponry changes:

  • The following changes affect vehicles of ranks VI-VII: 
    • HEAT-FS shell has been designated default for vehicles that previously had the APFS-DS shell as default (Except British ground vehicles - they still do not use HEAT shells)
    • The distribution of shell modifications has been changed as follows: if there is only one type of armour-piercing finned shell in the case of default HEAT shell, it will be located at the 3rd (III) level of researchable modifications. If the default HEAT shell has two types of the armour-piercing finned shells, the first one will be placed at the first (I) level and the second one at the 4th (IV) level of researchable modifications.

  • Mi-24V, Mi-24P — A bug with the necessary condition of opening the 9М114 Shturm х4 preset modification, S24 х4 has been fixed. Now you need to research the RP-2-149TK and S-24 modifications.
